WWE news: Drew McIntyre challenges Tyson Fury to 'Battle of Britain' wrestling match

McIntyre wants to wrestle Fury

WWE Champion Drew McIntyre has teased a potential super-fight with boxing megastar Tyson Fury. 

The Scotsman beat Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 36 to win his first title in WWE and he now has his eyes on a 'Battle of Britain' bout with the Gypsy King.

Fury himself is no stranger to pro wrestling, having featured at the Crown Jewel pay-per-view in October 2019, where he beat Braun Strowman via count-out. 

He's never ruled out a return to the squared circle - and could be put straight into the title picture one day if McIntyre gets his wish. 

"Right now, I'm concerned about our superstars getting the opportunity first," the WWE Champion told Bang Showbiz, per The Sun.

"They're the ones that have worked the hardest for it, those are the ones that deserve it. They're going to get [a stadium show], this is a project down the line obviously.

"But maybe that's where the match with Fury happens, as a Battle of Britain."

There's no doubt that McIntyre vs Fury would be a massive draw for WWE and McIntyre went on to suggest it's something that is being talked about. 

McIntyre wants to face Tyson Fury

"The big thing is, we want out fan base to be there but we also want to attract some eyes that maybe aren't on the WWE product" he continued.

"Tyson Fury is a smart guy, he understands the magnitude of WWE and the global reach.

"[He's] an entertainer. He mentioned my name leading up to WrestleMania, I mentioned his name after I won at WrestleMania.

Fury has already debuted in WWE

"He latched right onto it, we got into a back and forth. He understands that Tyson Fury versus the WWE champion Drew McIntyre could be a huge match."
