Tyson Fury confirms he was originally planned to make SummerSlam appearance last year

Tyson Fury exchanged words on various occasions with Drew McIntyre as they had hopes of working a match together.

WWE wanted to have the two stars wrestle for the WWE Title in the main event of a UK pay-per-view last year as WWE talked to both men about the idea. Fury previously confirmed that he was supposed to appear at WrestleMania 36 as well.

Speaking with Behind The Gloves, the boxing star not only backed up his previous statements about working the UK PPV match with the former WWE Champion and appearing at WrestleMania 36, but there were also plans for him to appear at SummerSlam last year. All of those plans were nixed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I was supposed to go to SummerSlam last year and I was supposed to go to WrestleMania last year, and I was also supposed to fight Drew McIntyre in a pay-per-view event in the UK, but none of that happened thanks to COVID.”

Fury beat Braun Strowman in a singles match by count-out at the WWE Crown Jewel pay-per-view event in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia at the King Fahd International Stadium in 2019. You can watch the entire interview by clicking on the player below (quotes can be found at the 5:30 mark):
