Drew McIntyre is standing on top of the wrestling world as the new WWE Champion. Having defeated Brock Lesnar for the title at WrestleMania 36, then defending the belt moments later against Big Show. McIntyre is ready to face all challenges that lie ahead. One of those being Tyson Fury!
The WWE Champion and Tyson Fury have exchanged social mead related comments with each other. Drew commented on the subject during an interview on WWE’s “The Bump”.
“Apparently, Tyson Fury and I are feuding now,” McIntyre began. “He’s been petitioning for a match with me. I want the world to know our Superstars are getting a frickin’ match first before him. But, if he keeps pushing it, I’ll knock his head off when things get back to normal.”
How did the feud begin?
“It began with him – I guess – giving his predictions, and mentioning that he thinks I was going to win but that he could smash me and he’d be champion, or whatever,” McIntyre tried to sum up. “I don’t know his exact words, because I don’t pay attention to it. A lot of people told me through text messages and social media, informing me that he called me out before WrestleMania.
“After I won the title, I was on TalkSport, which is the biggest sports show in the U.K. and it came up. I basically said, ‘If it ever came to it, I would face him for the title, and I would beat him.’ He responded to that and it took a like of its own.
“He started it, number one. Number two, like I said earlier, our Superstars are getting the shot first, because they deserve it and they’ve worked for it. And number three, if he wants the match, that’s fine. If he wants it in the U.K., that’s fine. I don’t care. He’s got the deadly hands. What’s he going to do when I take him down and smash him and he’s on his back?”
Tyson Fury has not been seen on WWE television since he defeated Braun Strowman at WWE’s Crowned Jewel, in February.
Apparently there is a connection between Joe Extoric from Netflix’s hit series “Tiger King” and pro wrestling. As the story goes, Joe had done commentary for NWA in 2014. Indy wrestling promoter, Robert Langdon spoke about Joe when he worked several shows between 2014-2018 as a commentator.
“Joe knew nothing about wrestling. And we knew this,” Langdon told Vice, adding that he paired Joe with two veteran announcers in the commentary booth. “We spent a lot of money on the show to make sure Joe looked professional.”
“Anywhere that we can try to put on a show, we’re gonna try to do it, but the most outrageous one is doing it at the zoo. It was really different. We didn’t pull a large crowd, so I kinda lost my butt on it. But it wasn’t about the money; it was about the animals,” said Langdon.
