Despite the two men appearing to both appreciate a good singalong, Drew McIntyre still wants to fight Tyson Fury in a WWE ring.
At WWE Clash At The Castle Drew McIntyre became the latest man to fall victim to Roman Reigns and The Bloodline. Despite being roared on by more 60,000 British fans and taking Reigns to the limit, interference from The Bloodline’s newest member Solo Sikoa, consigned the Scottish Warrior to defeat.
After the match the two rivals were joined in the ring by Tyson Fury who had been seated at ringside, and had earlier knocked out Austin Theory before he cashed in his Money In The Bank briefcase. The undefeated heavyweight boxing star raised Reigns’ hand before turning his attention to McIntyre.
Although the two men had taken shots at each other on social media in the lead up to the event, Fury broke into song before McIntyre also got in on the act.
Speaking to Ariel Helwani shortly after the show, McIntyre explained that while the pair enjoyed their banter, he was still more than ready to face Fury in the ring.
“We had a chat earlier today, and had a bit of laugh about the banter,” McIntyre said. “But I still said to him ‘If the time is right, you never know. We can get in that ring.’ It doesn’t matter if we’re having a laugh right now. When it comes time for a big fight that’s going to get eyeballs, I want that big fight.”
“And I saw him shake hands with Roman as I was in the corner, dejected, and feeling it after that third spear. The crowd were not happy about it, and I wasn’t convinced that he wasn’t going to deck me, and then suddenly he starts singing.”
Speaking at the post-show press conference, Triple H said that “the door is open” for Fury to get back in a WWE ring when his boxing career is over.
