There have been speculations around Drew McIntyre’s future with the WWE since late 2023 as reports indicated his contract is set to expire in early 2024. Despite his strong status on the Raw roster, the time is ticking down on his contract which is something unimaginable for the WWE fans. The significant part is that WWE has yet to sign him into a new deal with the company but the belief is that something will eventually be worked out between the two parties.

According to the reports of Fightful Select, Drew McIntyre is now confirmed to perform at WrestleMania 40. This has essentially been an indication that his contract has been extended beyond the event. The source noted that some additional time was added to his contract, likely to cover up the timespan that he lost due to injury and inactivity,

“Fightful Select has confirmed that McIntyre’s deal now extends past WrestleMania, and that some injury and inactivity time was added to the deal in order to get it there.”
