Drew McIntyre reportedly suffering from legit neck issues


Drew McIntyre is reportedly suffering from legitimate neck issues that caused him to be written out during tonight’s Day 1 event.

PWInsider is reporting that McIntyre has been dealing with neck issues that require him to undergo medical testing. The hope is that this will only cause McIntyre to be gone for a short amount of time, but PWInsider’s source said that it’s “up in the air” until McIntyre is checked out. They also reported that McIntyre was wearing a neck brace when he left the pay-per-view tonight.

McIntyre defeated Madcap Moss on tonight’s show. Later, he was being interviewed in a backstage segment when Happy Corbin and Moss jumped him. They placed a chair over his neck as Corbin grabbed a piece of stage equipment nearby and slammed it into the chair, injuring McIntyre’s neck.

In the last week, McIntyre worked the SmackDown brand house shows, working multiple times on a single show.
