Drew McIntyre on facing Tyson Fury in WWE
Tyson Fury is no stranger to WWE and has worked with Braun Strowman in the past in a WWE ring. However, Drew McIntyre talked about how special it would be to get the first-ever significant UK pay-per-view for WWE since the 1992 WWE SummerSlam.
"It's something I'd be very interested in if it would mean getting the first WWE UK pay-per-view, a significant one, the first since 1992 SummerSlam."
"The UK deserves that and if it takes McIntyre-Fury topping the card to get that huge interest them I'm about it... I think that would be huge."
Drew McIntyre, who himself is the first-ever British WWE Champion, talked about how Tyson Fury was skipping Deontay Wilder and was looking for a fight against Anthony Joshua, but was also talking about a big UK match. He hinted that the UK match could well be against Drew McIntyre himself, in WWE.
"Rumour has it Fury is skipping [Deontay] Wilder, he's looking down the line to face [Anthony] Joshua but he's looking for a big UK match in between. What could he be talking about? What could he have in his mind? I reckon if the situation presents itself and this pandemic lifts itself, there's a big opportunity for Fury-McIntyre in the UK."
