Drew McIntyre has been talking about his desire to see WWE hold another pay-per-view event in the UK.
The WWE Champion brought up this possibility again during an interview with The Scotsman. Back in October, it was reported that WWE discussed McIntyre vs. Tyson Fury headlining UK PPV. However, that was before the COVID-19 pandemic, which nixed those plans.
WWE hasn’t held a major PPV event in the country since the 1992 SummerSlam event.
McIntyre started out by talking about the UK having loyal fans and wrestlers look forward to working shows in the country.
“My goal is to make it happen in future and it’s going to happen because I’m gonna harass [WWE chief executive] Vince McMahon until it does. I talk a lot of crap online with Tyson Fury and Chris Sutton in particular – but whatever it takes to get the UK a significant PPV I’ll do.
I have plans that I won’t mention publicly but the big one I will, and the one that WILL happen, is getting a WWE PPV back to the UK.”
SummerSlam 1992 was held at Wembley Stadium and headlined by The British Bulldog defeating Bret Hart to win the Intercontinental Title.
McIntrye also talked about his journey back to WWE, Tyson Fury, and more. Check out the full interview here.
