Before Raw last week, WWE announced that Drew McIntyre would miss the next two week’s worth of shows after testing positive for COVID. This was the first time that WWE has acknowledged an active wrestler has the virus.
WWE has now announced that Drew McIntyre will be able to return to Raw next week for a segment with his Royal Rumble opponent Goldberg. This is the final episode of Raw before the big pay-per-view.

This will not be the first time that McIntyre has actually stepped into the ThunderDome following his positive COVID test. Drew will be at the Superstar Spectacle tapings on Friday, but the show won’t air until next Tuesday.
