Drew McIntyre has been a fighting Champion ever since he dethroned Brock Lesnar back at WrestleMania. That being said, it appears that Randy Orton isn’t the only man looking to take that WWE Championship.
There were rumors last week that stated that WWE planned to have Drew McIntyre face off against Tyson Fury in the United Kingdom as part of their first major pay-per-view since 1992.
The current WWE Champion recently spoke to Digital Spy where he was able to shed some light on the rumors and talk about the potential match.
“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.”
“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.”
Ahead of the Covid-19 lockdown, Tyson Fury and McIntyre exchanged a number of Tweets that showed that something was brewing. Hopefully, this match will have a chance to become a reality in 2021.
