What’s The Status On A WWE Match Between Tyson Fury And Drew McIntyre?
WBC Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury and WWE Champion Drew McIntyre have been angling for a match but will they get it?
Aside from being an elite boxer, Fury is known for having the gift of gab. McIntyre is in an industry where generating interest is required in order to have great success. He’s achieved this goal as he is the WWE Champion. Lately, Fury and McIntyre have found themselves in a war of words in an effort to hype up a potential clash inside the squared circle.
Triple H, a former full-time WWE wrestler and the company’s Executive Vice President of Global Talent Strategy & Development, spoke to PA News and said the following on a potential match between Fury and McIntyre (via The Sun).
“We could make Drew McIntyre v Tyson Fury work out, Tyson has got my number – we will make a call,” Triple H said. “Tyson Fury is one of those fighters that sometimes now finds himself in a position where, does Anthony Joshua want to fight him? Does Deontay Wilder want the rematch? Because he has proven to be maybe next-level from everybody. If you are able to make a super-fight, a mega-fight like a WWE champion Drew McIntyre, like a world champion in Tyson Fury in boxing, I think we sell out massive stadiums, do record global box office business and that is what it’s all about – so my phone is on.”
Fury is no stranger to being inside a WWE ring. Back on October 31, 2019, “The Gypsy King” took on Braun Strowman at the Crown Jewel event. Fury was the winner via countout after he knocked Strowman off the ring apron and onto the floor. Strowman couldn’t beat the ten-count. Fury’s appearances on WWE television was part of FOX’s strong push to bring well-known athletes on the SmackDown! show. That push has dwindled due to the COVID-19 pandemic but it’s clear that WWE still has interest in Fury.
