After defeating Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium, WBC Champion Tyson Fury revealed that his next step could be to make his WWE return at SummerSlam.
In front of 94,000 fans in Wembley Stadium on April 23rd, Tyson Fury successfully retained his WBC Championship against challenger Dillian Whyte via sixth-round stoppage.
At the post-fight press conference, ‘The Gypsy King’ was asked about a WWE return since the company is hosting its biggest UK show in 30 years at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium later in 2022. Fury said we shouldn’t rule him out of the event, but we might see him even sooner as he intends to be at SummerSlam.
“Don’t rule me out of fighting there. You might see me at SummerSlam coming up soon.
Last year, Tyson Fury confirmed on ‘Behind The Gloves’ that WWE had planned a blockbuster match between him and Drew McIntyre which would have taken place at a special UK pay-per-view in 2020 if not for the COVID-19 pandemic. At the press conference, the undefeated heavyweight showed he had a long memory and had some words of warning for McIntyre.
“I’ve got to speak to Vince [McMahon] and the boys. Maybe make this happen. I know Drew McIntyre has been saying a lot of things about me. I have to knock him out.”
"Don't rule me out of fighting there! You might see me at SummerSlam. I got to speak to Vince and the boys! I know @DMcIntyreWWE has been saying a lot of things about me! I'd love to be at Cardiff!" – @Tyson_Fury 👀

Tyson Fury also discussed how much he enjoyed working with WWE in Saudi Arabia, where he scored a win over Braun Strowman by knockout.
“I’d love to be at Cardiff, I’d love to be back at centre stage in the UK, especially for the wrestling. I enjoyed it last time in Saudi Arabia, it was fantastic. To come here and do it would be phenomenal.
“I’m definitely gonna make a bit of contact and see, can we make that SummerSlam thing a reality?”
