Edge & Drew McIntyre WWE Departure Rumors Leak

According to recent reports, Drew McIntyre is set to compete in a highly anticipated triple threat match for the Intercontinental Championship against Sheamus and Gunther at WrestleMania 39. While this is certainly exciting news for fans of the Scottish wrestler, there have also been concerns raised about McIntyre’s contract status with WWE.



During an episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer confirmed that McIntyre’s contract situation is legitimate. However, he also added that fans should not worry about his contract running up anytime soon, as there is still a lot of time left on it.

Meltzer stated, “I checked on it, it’s correct. You know, it’s a long way away. We’re in April, and tons of stuff could happen between April and the end of the year, but what he wrote, that’s completely accurate.”

Despite being a former WWE Champion, McIntyre’s spot on the card has been overshadowed by Roman Reigns’ dominance in recent years. However, it remains to be seen if WWE can secure McIntyre into a bigger deal to keep him on board. Of course, McIntyre has left the company before in search of greener pastures, and has certainly made a name for himself outside of WWE as well.

During a recent interview with Sirius XM, professional wrestler Edge opened up about his career and expressed his desire to retire from the ring before he becomes a hindrance to younger talent. He emphasized that he doesn’t want to be the guy who is looked at as a challenge for the younger talent but rather as a respected opponent.

Edge acknowledged that his time in the ring is now limited, and at 50 years of age, he wants to make the most of it. He talked about his upcoming match with Finn Balor and confirmed that this would be his final run. He also revealed that he still has goals that he wants to achieve before retiring for good.

One of these goals is to be involved in a Hell in a Cell match at WrestleMania with someone at the top of their game, like Finn Balor. He also mentioned his desire to retire in Toronto, but acknowledged that there are many factors that could influence that decision.

Edge’s statements show that he has a deep respect for the industry and the younger talent that is coming up. He wants to make sure that he is remembered as a respected opponent rather than someone who hung around past their prime. With his upcoming match with Finn Balor and his plans for retirement, it’s clear that Edge is still passionate about the sport and wants to make the most of his remaining time in the ring.

“I don’t want to be the guy who, when a young guy like Austin Theory looks at the lineup sheet, goes ‘I got Edge, alright, there’s going to be some work.’ I want Austin Theory to look at it and go ‘whoa okay cool I get to work Edge.’ Just like I did when I looked at the sheet and saw I’m working Mr. Perfect you know? That’s the feeling I want guys to still have. That’s what I want the audience to have. I don’t want to go past my sell-by date.

“I still want to be able to be involved in a Hell in a Cell at WrestleMania if I’m around with a guy like Finn Balor who’s at the top of his game. I don’t want to stick around until that’s not the case. In a perfect world, I’d love to retire in Toronto. Do I know exactly when that is? No, I don’t. There are a lot of mitigating factors to that, but this is the last run, there’s no doubt about that.”
