Drew McIntyre Labels CM Punk As “Controversial”

Huge Drew McIntyre Match Added To WWE SummerSlam

Drew McIntyre exudes professionalism and did just as much in a recent interview with Sportskeeda.

The former WWE Champion was asked about the possibility of CM Punk heading to WWE following his infamous firing from AEW. McIntyre made clear he doesn’t dabble in the dirt and kept his comments about Punk short and simple.

“I don’t make those decisions. I watch what I say in interviews. He’s certainly controversial and he gets people talking. I’ll leave it at that.”

CM Punk last made his mark in WWE way back in 2014, but there were reports that when matters first started getting dicey between him and AEW following All Out 2022, Punk had potential plans to see about making a return to WWE. Punk’s reported desire was to return at the 2023 Royal Rumble and then later face Kevin Owens in a headline match at WrestleMania 39 in Los Angeles.

Drew McIntyre’s Current Status With WWE

While the full details of Drew McIntyre’s contract situation with WWE are unclear, a recent report from PWInsider has the Scotsman sticking with WWE until or around WrestleMania 40 in April. McIntyre, along with Gunther and Sheamus, nearly stole the show at WrestleMania 39 with their standout triple threat match that saw your record-reigning Intercontinental Champion Gunther coming out on top.

McIntyre has currently been in an loose alliance with Matt Riddle while on WWE Raw after making his return to the company at Money In The Bank. McIntyre helped carry WWE throughout the pandemic with his unprecedented title reign, but since dropping the title the heavyweight has arguably been underutilized with the exception of his main event match at Clash At The Castle.
