The former NXT Champion had a fantastic 2017 that ended in a pretty disappointing fashion. After returning to the WWE, Drew McIntyre was shot right to the top of the NXT card and captured the NXT championship at Takeover: Brooklyn III. Rumors of McIntyre’s main roster debut sparked around this time, with many reports coming out stating that the sinister Scotsman would debut at the Royal Rumble.
However, McIntyre’s year would take a turn for the worst when he tore his bicep while failing to defend his title against Andrade Almas. Immediately after Takeover: WarGames, WWE went live on Facebook, and Triple H told the WWE Universe that McIntyre was injured and would be out for some time.
Recently, though, McIntyre took to Twitter to let his fans know he had returned to the Performance Center.
Ive been a wrestler over half my life, spent a third in America and lived at more addresses than I can remember, but, there has always been one constant I could call home pic.twitter.com/tSmDJNlJ4r

It’s unknown how much longer McIntyre will be out, but his return to the PC is a pretty good sign of progress.
