On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer gave an update on how long Drew McIntyre is expected to be out of action.

McIntyre announced yesterday that he's been "medically disqualified" from competing on this Friday's SmackDown, where he was scheduled to team with Sheamus in a match against The Usos for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team titles. McIntyre promised that he'll be back in the ring soon.

Meltzer confirmed on Wrestling Observer Radio that the injury issue McIntyre is dealing with isn't expected to be a long-term thing. Meltzer noted that McIntyre wanted to wrestle on Friday's SmackDown, but WWE wouldn't let him.

“[McIntyre] is injured. I was told an injury, but it’s not from a firsthand source," Meltzer said. "But he’s supposed to be back for the Christmas [house] shows. So it’s only a couple of weeks, I know that. The only thing I know is that he wanted to wrestle and they would not let him wrestle. But it's not like it's going to be a long-term thing, at least as it stands right now.”

Butch will instead be teaming with Sheamus on Friday's SmackDown as they challenge The Usos for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team titles.
