Drew McIntyre’s Wife
The second spouse of Drew McIntyre, Kaitlyn Frohnapfel, is a doctor who used to compete for the University of South Florida's track and field team. Despite being a successful athlete in high school and college, Kaitlyn made the decision to give up that goal. The wife of Drew McIntyre works as a doctor and personal trainer for him.
Richard and Wendy Frohnapfel gave birth to Kaitlyn Frohnapfel in Largo, Florida, on December 31, 1991. Not much more about Kaitlyn's family is known other than the fact that she grew up in a nuclear family with her sister, Rachel Frohnapfel. She also identifies as Caucasian, is a citizen of the United States, and practices Christianity. Kaitlyn was a standout athlete while attending Largo High School, a nearby high school.
Frohnapfel consequently decided to join the school's track and field team. Frohnapfel was able to advance her career by playing for the Packers, one of Florida's most well-liked sports teams. Cory Lopez, Kristina Shannon, Chester B. McMullen, Karissa Shannon, and other well-known alumni attended the school. Drew McIntyre sustained a serious injury soon after being let go by WWE in 2014. He could not wrestle again because two of his vertebrae were severely damaged. Kaitlyn Frohnapfel stood by him through these difficult times and helped him fully recover. Even today, the WWE Champion is appreciative of this. He claims that she assisted him in restarting his career.
McIntyre later participated in the 2020 Royal Rumble, where he triumphed, much to the delight of the audience. He gave the victory a special dedication to his wife, Frohnapfel, after the victory. McIntyre won the WWE Championship by defeating Brock Lesnar a month later. McIntyre has been married before, though many of you might not be aware of this. "The Chosen One" married Taryn Terrell in Las Vegas back in May 2010. The two separated in the same month the following year.
With Frohnapfel, McIntyre has never experienced any rocky patches, and it is obvious that the two were meant to be. Despite the two of them being nearly a foot apart in height, they always look great together. She hasn't been active on any major social media platforms in a while, so little is known about her presence there. The lavish home that the two lovers share is located in Tampa, Florida. She makes Drew McIntyre a beast, and McIntyre might have found his "Chosen One."
A. The net worth of Drew McIntyre is estimated to be $1.5 million as of November 2023, according to FirstSportz.
