Update on Wade Barrett and Drew McIntyre’s Visa Situation

Nick Paglino

As we reported earlier today, WWE stars Wade Barrett and Drew McIntyre have been taken off WWE TV indefinitely due to issues with their work visas.

In an update to the situation, The Wrestling Observer is reporting that at today’s Smackdown taping, the WWE creative team was been told to assume that Barrett and McIntyre will be out until after SummerSlam, and to begin making creative plans with that in mind. It should be noted that at this point WWE has no idea how long McIntyre will be out, and it’s being said that Barrett could be back as early as next week, but again nothing is known for sure at this point, and both men could be out for several months.
