Considering the run of form Drew McIntyre has been on recently, and a World Title shot at WrestleMania 40 now in the bag, you’d be forgiven for thinking the Scot has finally signed a contract extension with the company. There were even reports to kick off this week suggesting McIntyre had committed his future to WWE. Apparently that is not the case, and despite earning himself a WrestleMania spot at Elimination Chamber, McIntyre still hasn’t confirmed he will be a WWE Superstar for the foreseeable future.




McIntyre Hasn’t Signed A New Deal Yet

Clarification that McIntyre and WWE haven’t yet agreed terms comes courtesy of MailSport. Not only have sources indicated to the publication that a deal hasn’t yet been reached, but apparently it is far from being finalized. That doesn’t mean we’ll be seeing McIntyre become All Elite or return to TNA a few months from now. Although not close to being finished, negotiations between WWE and McIntyre are ongoing, and both remain hopeful a deal will eventually be reached.

Drew McIntyre won a chance to face Seth Rollins for the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 40 in a match he cannot lose.

Since initial reports regarding when McIntyre’s current deal comes to an end suggested he’d be done with the company prior to WrestleMania 40, it makes sense that some might have assumed an agreement has been reached. However, according to Fightful Select, McIntyre is only confirmed to be with WWE through WrestleMania season after more time was tacked onto the end of his contract. A common practice in pro wrestling when someone has missed time due to an injury.

Cash Or Creative?

All of that said, it does seem likely McIntyre will be sticking around. It has been heavily implied that there’s no sticking point over the amount of money potentially on the table, meaning it’s likely creative decisions that might have McIntyre rethinking his future. Heading into WrestleMania, The Scottish Psychopath is coming off the back of 12 title match losses in a row. A number of those matches, including his showdown with Roman Reigns at Clash at the Castle, were ones McIntyre likely expected to win.


On a heel run in 2024, McIntyre has been doing some of his best work to date. Not only will that further WWE’s efforts to keep him under its roof, but McIntyre will be in good spirits and want to keep this run going too. That may all hinge on the result of his WrestleMania match, though. Between his unsigned contract and Seth Rollins’ back, you’d have to think McIntyre is the favorite to win. However, we’ve been here before.
