PWInsider reported that WWE made the decision to replace McIntyre with Braun Strowman due to he has been very ill with bad food poisoning.
The word making the rounds is that McIntyre has been very ill with bad food poisoning but gutted his way through Smackdown (including getting an IV treatment to help him get through the show) but the company made the decision to pull him from the road so he could rest. They tapped Braun Strowman to make the Smackdown live events this weekend in McIntyre’s place, surprising fans with Braun’s first live events since returning to the company.
Drew McIntyre has been advertised for the Extreme Rules premium live event and will face Karrion Kross in a Strap Match as planned.
