Pro Wrestling Sheet has confirmed the injury Drew McIntyre suffered at TakeOver is as serious as believed and the former NXT Champion will be out of action for months.
Sources tell The Sheet that Drew’s test results showed he tore his bicep — we’re told it happened during a mistimed move near the end of the match — and he’s hoping to return in time for WrestleMania weekend.
As we previously reported, McIntyre was injured while wrestling Andrade ‘Cien’ Almas.
Drew tweeted this morning saying, “Unfortunately I did suffer an injury during my title defense at TakeOver. I’ve dealt with setbacks before. The reality is, I always come back better…There’s a scary thought for whomever is NXT champion come 2018…
