A new update on Drew McIntyre’s status has surfaced online.
For fans of the former WWE RAW Tag Team Champion, you shouldn’t expect to see him make his return to television this week on either Monday Night RAW or SmackDown Live.
Pwinsider.com reports that McIntyre has not been cleared to return to the ring. In fact, he’s not backstage at the Chase Center in San Francisco, California for Monday’s RAW.
It shouldn’t be ruled out that even if he is cleared, there’s always the chance that WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon decides to keep him off of television until the Draft that takes place next month.
The belief last week was that he could be cleared to make a return to in-ring action last week.
McIntyre has been out of action after undergoing an operation to repair a lingering injury, which came up after his recent promotional tour of Mexico.
The belief is that both sides wanted him to get the surgery done and out of the way. Both sides hoped he will be ready for the fall TV push and the build to WrestleMania 36 season, which appears to still be on track.
