The COVID-19 pandemic changed a lot of plans that WWE had for 2020 including a match between Drew McIntyre and Tyson Fury.
The two stars have been exchanging words in various interviews and on social media.
Earlier this month it was reported that WWE wanted to have the two stars wrestle for the WWE Title in the main event of a UK pay-per-view this year. It was stated that WWE talked to both men about the idea.
This would’ve been a big match as well as a notable event as WWE hasn’t held a big pay-per-view event in the UK since the 1992 SummerSlam. McIntyre has since dropped the WWE Title to Randy Orton.
Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that he told this week that Fury has not committed to a date for the match.
Meltzer brought up how WWE hasn’t announced the second event in Saudi Arabia this year and this would have been the most likely place for the match.
There’s still no word yet on when WWE will run the next event in Saudi Arabia because of the pandemic. WWE also haven’t run shows with fans in attendance, but Vince McMahon is reportedly hoping to do so for WrestleMania 37.
