Drew McIntyre Reveals Whether He Considered Leaving WWE This Year WWE

After re-signing with the company, former WWE Champion Drew McIntyre has revealed whether he considered leaving WWE this year.

As previously reported, Drew McIntyre re-signed with WWE to a multi-year deal following WrestleMania 40. Following his new deal with the promotion, many fans have been wondering what would have happened with McIntyre if he didn’t re-sign.

In a new interview with PWInsider, Drew McIntyre was asked whether conversations ever got to the point he considered leaving WWE. He answered:

“It was never a consideration, no. I’m wrestling with the WWE, I don’t think…in the sense that, what am I gonna go wrestle somewhere else cause this is where I want to wrestle.”

“I don’t want to be anywhere else but our family has gone through a lot over the past year. My wife’s sister unfortunately passed a year ago yesterday.”

“And that was very difficult and I felt like I’m gonna have to take some serious time for my family.”

“And you know, there was a period where I was like, maybe I’ll just have to take a little break and come back and you know, just some uncertainty but no, thankfully as a family we came together and you know, WWE gave me the time I needed whenever I needed it during that period.”

“And in the end, you know, as a family, we came together, we had a conversation, what was best for us, the company were unbelievable with that and thankfully, you know, everybody is in a great place right now.”

Drew McIntyre is set to challenge Damian Priest for the World Heavyweight Championship on an unconfirmed date.

McIntyre has made a prediction for WWE Clash At The Castle in Glasgow, Scotland, which you can read at this link.
