WWE Superstar Drew McIntyre believes boxing legend Tyson Fury is a perfect fit for WWE.
Drew McIntyre thinks Tyson Fury has the makings of a bona fide WWE Superstar and is prepared to welcome Fury to the WWE roster whenever the legendary boxer hangs up his gloves for good.
During a recent trip to India, McIntyre spoke with Sportskeeda Wrestling’s Riju Dasgupta about various topics, including the possibility of Fury returning to WWE.
“Oh, a hundred percent,” McIntyre replied when asked if he thought Fury was a good fit for WWE. “Tyson and I go from arguing with each other on social media to singing with each other in Cardiff to make sure the fans go home happy, no matter how I felt personally in the moment,” he added. “You’ve gotta sometimes swallow your pride and make sure the fans are happy. But Tyson gets it, he’s an entertainer, he’s top of his field, and when he chooses to hang up the boxing gloves, he’s very much custom fit for WWE.”
As you might recall, Fury and McIntyre conducted a mass sing-a-long following the main event of WWE’s Clash at the Castle back in September. The hootenanny began when Fury launched into a rousing rendition of Don McLean’s 1971 classic “American Pie”. McIntyre joined in for the chorus, and a portion of the WWE Universe got involved too. But the festivities didn’t stop there. McIntyre thanked his compatriots in Cardiff for their support before signing the chorus to “Don’t Look Back In Anger” by Oasis. It was a truly bizarre moment, but one that WWE fans will remember for a long time.
Fury made his in-ring WWE debut in Saudi Arabia at Crown Jewel in October 2019. In that match, Fury defeated Braun Strowman via countout. He is reported to have made over $16 million for his first WWE stint. Fury went on to beat Deontay Wilder for a second time to become the WBC heavyweight champion of the world.
Triple H recently confirmed that he’s been in talks with Fury regarding a return to WWE.
