WWE Nearly Had To Replace Drew McIntyre In Recent SmackDown Match


Drew McIntyre almost didn’t work the number one contender’s match last Friday on WWE SmackDown where the winner would earn themselves a shot against GUNTHER at WrestleMania 39 for the Intercontinental Title. 

Among the competitors were Sheamus, Karrion Kross, Xavier Woods, and LA Knight. It came down to a draw as McIntyre and Sheamus pinned two different competitors simultaneously. WWE official Adam Pearce later ruled that both men would square off one-on-one this coming Friday night to determine GUNTHER’s opponent.


Pwinsider is reporting that McIntyre was very sick throughout last week, leading to a risk of him being pulled from the bout. Once he got to the venue and was examined, he was cleared to wrestle.
