We previously reported here on eWn that Drew McIntyre hasn’t been seen on WWE TV lately as he underwent a minor surgery. According to WON, he’s currently waiting for a doctor to clear him before he can return. The recent surgery McIntyre had was not anything “muscle or bone related.”
With that being said, McIntyre was reportedly sick for a few weeks but kept it to himself and continued to work as he was in the middle of a pretty big push with Shane McMahon and Elias. On the day he did his King of the Ring match with Ricochet, he reportedly could “barely get out of bed.” At that time, he thought he was just dealing with the flu or something similar and wanted to work through it. After going on a WWE promotional tour in Mexico, he was told by WWE to see a doctor. Less than three hours after his diagnosis, he was ordered into surgery.
McIntyre will likely be cleared “sooner rather than later.”
