This September, WWE will hold a huge stadium event in Cardiff, Wales, marking the first time in three decades the company has staged a show of that size in the UK. There's a lot of speculation about what could and should headline the Premium Live Event, with one popular suggestion being former WWE Champion Drew McIntyre squaring off with legendary boxer Tyson Fury.
He's no stranger to the squared circle, and had COVID not screwed things up, McIntyre would have defended the WWE Championship against The Gypsy King back in 2020.
In the video below (via WrestlingNews.co), McIntyre weighed in on the possibility of facing Fury in Cardiff later this year. "We go back and forth with each other and have done it for the past couple of years," the WWE Superstar said. "[We] give each other stick whenever he shows up at one of our shows. Somehow he ducks me, he’s the world’s largest ninja. I’m a big fan of his."
"He’s highly entertaining, he’s such an attraction and that’s why I’m always saying to him, ‘Hey, the door’s always open in WWE. The ball is in your court.’ You come in here as Drew McIntyre’s special guest or we will find a role for you or perhaps myself, himself do something in the ring."
Fury will defend his WBC Heavyweight title against Dillian Whyte this weekend, and to that, McIntyre said: "It’s a huge event, no reason to lose. All I’ll say to Tyson is, Don’t screw it up. Get through this fight, win it, and then give us a call. We’ll figure out if it can happen in Cardiff."
This would make for one epic main event, and we're hopeful WWE can make it happen. It's unlikely to be for a title, though rumour has it McIntyre will be feuding with Roman Reigns this summer...
