Believe it or not, wrestlers have a life outside of the squared circle. And, more often than not, the best things happen to our favorite wrestlers without us knowing. For example, Drew McIntyre is now a naturalized American citizen.
Known for his Scottish heritage, McIntyre has been a central figure in WWE for several years, making this development a significant personal milestone for him.
According to PWInsider.com, McIntyre has completed the process of becoming an American citizen. However, the news comes at a challenging time for the wrestling superstar, as he's currently dealing with the loss of his sister-in-law.
This is believed to be one of the primary reasons why McIntyre has taken a step back from regular WWE TV programming.
Unfortunately, without official word from the WWE, fans can't help but speculate about McIntyre's future. Specifically, the Scottish Warrior's current contract with the WWE will expire in early 2024. There hasn't been any significant progress in the negotiations for a new contract, which is reportedly another factor in McIntyre's absence. But, there is a silver lining to all of this. It's reported that McIntyre flew to New York earlier this week, presumably to discuss his future within the WWE.
McIntyre's presence has been terribly missed since he took part in the high-stakes triple-threat match against Sheumas and the reigning WWE Intercontinental champion, Gunther, at WrestleMania 39.
McIntyre would be the perfect opponent for Seth Rollins with the World Heavyweight Championship on the line at Money in the Bank in London. But, McIntyre's name has since been removed from the lineup.
It's still unclear when we'll see McIntyre grace the WWE with his mighty presence again.
