The first British world champion in WWE history, Drew McIntyre, has his sights fixed on the World Heavyweight Champion. He has his calendar marked for the pay-per-view event in the UK. However, the COVID-19 pandemic seems to have delayed these talks.
McIntyre doesn’t plan on shutting up about his desired match. He is currently building himself up back SmackDown. Drew made his debut on SmackDown late-2007. Back then, Vince McMahon prophesized that he will be a future world champion.
Drew McIntyre voiced his intentions in an interview with Talk Sport. He reveals his plan for UK pay-per-view and the man he wants to fight. Surprisingly, he wants to face British professional boxer, Tyson Fury.
Tyson Fury is not even a WWE superstar. He is however, a two-time world heavyweight champion. Tyson and Drew have been going back and forth and Drew finally gave his statement.
“I’m still angling for that significant UK pay-per-view and I won’t shut up until it happens. Tyson Fury and I have gone back and forth for a long time. If we needed something just a little outside of the box to get people’s attention, especially in the UK with someone of Fury’s stature fighting Drew McIntyre in the battle of Britain, that would really draw some eyes and that’s where I’d like to see it.”
Drew McIntyre defeated Jinder Mahal in a London Street Fight. After the match, McIntyre announced that he is going to do whatever he can to get WWE PPV to come to the UK.
