• WWE Champion Drew McIntyre Has Already Planted Seeds For A Major Feud
WWE posted the following on their website:
Tyson Fury fires back at new WWE Champion Drew McIntyre
“Might the WWE Universe see a showdown between Drew McIntyre and Tyson Fury someday? It could be in the cards if the new WWE Champion and The Gypsy King have anything to say about it.
McIntyre mentioned Fury’s name — as well as Celtic football legend Chris Sutton — in an interview with talkSPORT as potential opponents he’d like to face. Fury responded almost immediately on Instagram.
“First I say congratulations and what a fantastic job,” Fury wrote. “Secondly I accept his challenge anytime any place, anywhere.”
While McIntyre is riding high after conquering Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 36 for the WWE Title, Fury has also had his share of massive victories in recent months. The undefeated lineal heavyweight boxing champion vanquished undefeated WBC Champion Deontay Wilder by TKO in February and knocked off Braun Strowman in his WWE debut at Crown Jewel last November.”
