According to PWInsider, WWE Champion Drew McIntyre will be medically cleared to compete at WWE Superstar Spectacle on January 22.
On January 11, it was announced by the company that ‘The Scottish Psychopath’ had been positively diagnosed with COVID-19 and would be in quarantine for the standard fourteen days. This, in theory, would mean that the Scot would be required to isolate until January 26.
However, that does not appear to be case as the latest report by PWInsider states that the WWE Champion has already been medically cleared by WWE to both compete on the January 22 tapings and be live on the January 25 Monday Night Raw to confront his Royal Rumble challenger, Bill Goldberg.
WWE Superstar Spectacle has been rumoured over the past few weeks to contain not only the future generation of stars from India, but also the biggest names in WWE such as McIntyre, Ric Flair, AJ Styles and more in order to attract the casual viewer.
Though details are still to be confirmed, the inaugural tapings of WWE Superstar Spectacle – to take place from the WWE Capitol Wrestling Center – will see an 8-Man Tournament staged to crown the inaugural WWE/NXT Indian Champion. Over the coming weeks and months, when the COVID-19 travel restrictions have lifted, the show will transform into NXT India and be situated in the country along with its own performance centre.
Currently it is unclear who Drew McIntyre will face at WWE Superstar Spectacle as he prepares to do battle with former WCW World Heavyweight Champion, Goldberg, at the Royal Rumble on January 31.
