Tyson Fury showed so much promise when he faced off against Braun Strowman in Saudi Arabia last year, so it comes as a surprise that The World Champion boxer hasn’t been called back for another match in WWE.
Drew McIntyre and Tyson Fury have been calling each other out in various interviews and on social media over the past few weeks, but nothing concrete has been put on the table, until now. Fury has challenged WWE to bring a pay-per-view to the UK so that he can headline alongside the current WWE Champion.
It’s thought that much of their banter has been in good faith since the two stars have become friends, but there is definitely a reason why WWE has allowed their Champion to continue the line of conversation with Fury.
The Gypsy King spoke to BT Sport earlier today where he was able to make it clear that he would be open to stepping back into a WWE ring if the company was able to hold a pay-per-view in the United Kingdom in the near future.
“I am a big fan [of Drew McIntyre], big, big fan. He’s absolutely in fantastic shape, real good looking fella. He may be able to teach me a few beauty tips and a few wrestling moves. But yeah, I did see him talk about a big British fight. Sure, if WWE comes to the United Kingdom and they want a massive pay-per-view event, then look no further than the Gypsy King vs. Drew McIntyre for the WWE belt [Championship].”
WWE hasn’t held a major pay-per-view event in the United Kingdom since SummerSlam 1992 and Triple H recently claimed that this wasn’t something that the company was looking into at present since the time difference could prove costly and would alienate their American audience.
