Tyson Fury Says He Was Supposed to Wrestle Drew McIntyre at a WWE PPV in the UK

Boxing World Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury said that he was supposed to face Drew McIntyre in a match at a WWE PPV in the UK last year, but plans were derailed due to COVID-19.

Speaking to Behind the Gloves, Fury said:

“I was supposed to go to SummerSlam last year and I was supposed to go to WrestleMania last year and then I was also supposed to fight Drew McIntyre in a PPV event in the UK, but none of that happened thanks to COVID. So COVID’s cost me SummerSlam, Royal Rumble, PPV with Drew McIntyre, the [Deontay] Wilder rematch, and the [Anthony] Joshua fight. So thank you COVID [laughs].”

In April and August of last year, Fury and McIntyre had a brief worked feud on Twitter, which was likely to set up the match between them that never happened.
