I don’t like to miss any shows as everybody knows but I promise I’ll be back soon”
We need ya lad, hurry back 👊🏻

Drew McIntyre wanted to participate in the fight, but WWE didn’t want to take the risk, which kept McIntyre out of the ring until Christmas.
“[McIntyre] is injured. I was told an injury, but it’s not from a firsthand source. But he’s supposed to be back for the Christmas 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.”
Sheamus is looking for a replacement for the upcoming battle, as according to the insiders, one of the Celtic Warrior’s Brawling Brutes buds is set to team up with Sheamus to fight for the title.
