Newly-crowned WWE Champion Drew McIntyre recently did an interview with TalkSport to discuss his big title win over Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 36. During the interview, McIntyre called out English soccer star Chris Sutton and WBC heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury to a match. He suggested Sports Breakfast co-host and Rangers star Ally McCoist set it up.
Here’s what he had to say:
When it gets backs to normal, the next thing I want to do is fight Chris Sutton. You set it up. Finally, when everything gets back to normal and I can get back to the UK and parade about with the belt, the last thing I want to do is have the match with Sutton. You’d be in my corner. I know Tyson Fury is on the show today, as well.
I need to bring up Fury because he was talking trash about me, so I know he’s coming on the show. Tell him ‘I saw what you said about me.’ He didn’t care who won the match [between Lesnar and I], he thought I was going to win and thinks he can smash me. Just let him know ‘Fury I’ve won the championship, now I’m paying attention to you’. After I beat Sutton, I’m coming for Fury.
Fury took to Instagram to respond to the WWE Champion’s challenge:
“@dmcintyrewwe has call me out after his @wwe Wrestlemania 36 victory, first I say congratulations and what a fantastic job. Secondly I accept his challenge, anytime any place, anywhere.”
