Drew McIntyre is angling for a match against Tyson Fury on pay-per-view in the UK

Drew McIntyre was this week’s guest on Corey Graves’ After the Bell podcast. The WWE champion stated that he’s been trying to find a way to stand out while so many people are stuck at home during the coronavirus pandemic, and that’s why he’s been going after various MMA stars:

“I started poking some bears. I started going after Tyson Fury, Colby Covington, soccer player Chris Sutton in the UK, even Conor McGregor.

Tyson and I have been going back and forth to the point where we’re trying to push this big UK pay-per-view that hasn’t happened since SummerSlam ‘92. And a lot of people have started talking about it to the point where people within the office are asking me, ‘Do you know something we don’t know? Is this really gonna happen? Because you talk about it so much, yourself and Fury have got a dialogue going to the point where you’re both main eventing this Summerslam pay-per-view.’

And that’s literally what I said. If I have to fight Tyson Fury in the UK to get this big UK pay-per-view...we’re absolutely gonna do it.”

It sounds like McIntyre will do just about anything that will result in WWE pay-per-view returning to the United Kingdom. Do you think McIntyre vs. Fury is a realistic way to make that happen?
