Tyson Fury competed for WWE in Saudi Arabia and he really wants to come back for more squared circle action. The current novel coronavirus nixed WrestleMania plans for Fury, but he has his eye on the new WWE Champion.
Fury threw out a challenge for Drew McIntyre that was certainly heard. Now we just have to wait for the COVID-19 situation to improve so Tyson Fury can actually make a flight for that match.
While speaking to WWE The Bump, Drew McIntyre said that he’s apparently feuding with Tyson Fury now. Then he stated that if Tyson Fury keeps pushing for it then Drew just might have to take his head off with a Claymore Kick.
“I’ve been doing media non-stop since WrestleMania was shown. I started at 1:15 in the morning, calling into the UK. I was on all the big shows therre. Apparently, Tyson Fury and I are feuding now. You know, he’s been petitioning for a match with me. I want the world to know, our Superstars are getting a frickin’ match first before him. But, if he keeps pushing it, I’ll knock his head off when things get back to normal.”
“Well, it’s certainly taken a life of its own. It began with him, I guess, giving his predictions, and you know, mentioning that he thinks I’m going to win but he could smash me and he’d be champion, or whatever. I don’t know his exact words, because I didn’t pay attention to it, just a lot of people told me by text messages, ‘Hey, man.’ A lot of social media, you know, informing me that he kinda called me out before WrestleMania. And then after I won the title I was on TalkSport, which is the biggest sports show in the U.K. and it came up. And I basically said, ‘If it ever came to it, I would face him for the title and I would beat him.’
“He responded to that and it took a like of its own. So he started it, number one. Number two, like I said earlier, our Superstars are getting the shot first, because they deserve it and they’ve worked for it. And number three, if he wants the match it’s fine. If he wants it in the U.K., it’s fine. I don’t care. Like, he’s got the deadly hands. What’s he going to do when I take him down and smash him and he’s on his back? When he’s on his back, he’s nothing.”
This feud did take on a life of its own. There isn’t a whole lot to keep people entertained right now and the thought of Tyson Fury vs Drew McIntyre is very interesting. We’ll have to see what the cards hold as WWE and the rest of the world continues to trudge through this difficult portion of human history.
