For those who have asked, WWE and Drew McIntyre have still yet to come to terms on a new deal.

One source in the company stated that McIntyre's current deal expires in the "5-6 week" range, so there is obviously a pressure there to finally get new deal done if the company wishes for McIntyre to remain locked in and not land on the open market.  If the two sides don't agree to a new deal (or an extension of the current one), that would mean McIntyre would be free to wrestle anywhere he wishes by late May/early June.

We are told by another source that the two have been in discussions for several weeks but have yet to get to the finish line on new terms.

We are also told that one of the reasons WWE made changes in the Talent Relations department last week was to instill officials - Chris Legentil and Matthew Altman - into the division who have forged past relationships with talents in order to faciliate the signing process in a much stronger fashion.  Beyond McIntyre, we are told that the company is making it a point to insure that Becky Lynch's deal is also completed before it expires.  One sources believes Lynch has about 8 weeks left in her current deal, but we have not been able to 100% confirm the accuracy of that claim.

It was very out of character for WWE, pre-Endeavor, to let deals get this close to expiring, so it appears the company is trying to course correct that.
