Drew McIntyre Wants To Headline WWE’s UK PPV with Tyson Fury
Former WWE Champion Drew McIntyre says he is still aiming to headline a WWE PPV in United Kingdom against Tyson Fury.
Although the promotion travels to the country almost every year and even has a different brand in the form of NXT UK, WWE has not held a main roster PPV event in UK for a long time. The last PPV event they held in UK was an NXT TakeOver special at Wembley Arena in London.
Drew McIntyre has been pushing for a WWE PPV in UK ever since he was the WWE Champion. He once again revealed, in his recent interview with Talksport, that he is still pushing to WWE management to stage a PPV in UK and he will not shut up until it turns into reality.
McIntyre also pointed out how he and Tyson Fury are going back and forth verbally over the last year or so. The Scottish Psychopath believes that he and Gypsy King can be a big draw in UK in the battle of Britain.
Tyson Fury was involved with WWE back in 2019 when he faced Braun Strowman at Crown Jewel 2019 PPV. Fury was reportedly offered a huge sum of $25 million for that appearance. It will be interesting to see if WWE can offer something similar to WBC & The Ring World Heavyweight Champion for a PPV in UK.
Fury recently defended the title against Deontay Wilder via knockout and kept his undefeated streak going at 31-0-1. He is currently busy in preparing his brother Tommy Fury for a bout against Jake Paul and in promoting that match.
If WWE heads to UK for a PPV, it will not likely happen before 2023. The promotion has already released their PPV schedule for 2022 and there is hardly any scope left for them to stage a PPV in UK that year.
