• Drew McIntyre Pushing Hard For A WWE PPV In UK
While speaking on the Scottish Champions’ special episode on WWE’s Virtual Round, WWE Champion Drew McIntyre said that he’s pushing hard for a WWE pay-per-view in the UK:
“That’s something I’m not just visualizing. It’s something I’m actively working and pushing and talking about whenever I do UK media. I’m always trying to think outside the box. I’m trying to get — Tyson Fury seems to want to get involved in something.
If it takes getting a battle of Britain going to get a UK PPV, I don’t care. Just, all that matters is when the things get back to normal I want to get back home, I wanna get all five of us on an open top bus from the top of Scotland, take it right down through the UK to the bottom of England on a big tour.
Get the country rallied up, tell the world this is where there should be a PPV.”
• Charlotte Flair Wanted To Make Liv Morgan Look Good On RAW
NXT Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair faced off against Liv Morgan in a pretty good match on this week’s RAW. She discussed her and Morgan’s performance while speaking to Sports Illustrated.
Below is what she said:
“My take was, when I first found out about it, was we had three segs [television segments], with a promo and a match, that is a huge chunk of time. That’s an opportunity to highlight Liv, highlight myself, and it’s much more time than we were given before.
I went out there thinking, ‘How can I give Liv the best performance knowing she is the next big thing?’ Having the promo and the two segs, I don’t think people realize how much goes into that. I’ve had those reps, she hasn’t.
I know people were disappointed she lost but, at the same time, it makes you go, ‘I want more for her!’ Now you want more for Liv. Sometimes people forget this, but you can’t slay the dragon on the first night.”
Flair was the one who defeated Morgan last year, after which she went off TV to get repackaged.
