Drew McIntyre wants to bring a WWE pay-per-view event back to the UK

Drew McIntyre made history when he defeated Brock Lesnar to win the WWE Championship in the headliner of WrestleMania 36 – Night 2 in Orlando, Florida at the WWE Performance Center on the WWE Network.

The historical accomplishment was the fact that he became the first-ever British WWE Champion.

Now, McIntyre has a big goal that he wants to accomplish, which is to bring WWE back to the UK in a large capacity. While WWE runs two tours of Europe each year, he wants to have the company hold a pay-per-view event in the UK.

McIntyre made his intentions known while doing an interview with the BBC. 

“When everything starts resuming back to normal and I get the chance to come back to the UK, I want to bring this title back. I want to get an open top bus and drive from the top of Scotland to the bottom of England and just promote WWE like crazy. I’m going to make it happen. I made this happen – becoming the first-ever British champion – so I’ll make the pay-per-view happen too.”

McIntyre also talked about becoming WWE Champion, wanting to face Tyson Fury, and more. You can read the entire interview here. 

It should be noted that WWE hasn’t hosted a major PPV event in the UK since SummerSlam 1992. The reason for that is due to WWE not wanting spoilers to get out since there would be a delay.

However, with WWE being able to air PPV events at any time they want due to the WWE Network, this is certainly possible.
