Drew McIntyre: The UK Will Get A "Significant" WWE PPV If It's The Last Thing I Do
McIntyre is still trying to get a big UK show
Drew McIntyre has promised the United Kingdom will get a "significant" WWE pay-per-view "if it's the last thing I do."
WWE returned to the UK earlier this week for a four-day live event tour and McIntyre proclaimed after his Street Fights against Jinder Mahal in Newcastle upon Tyne and London that he will do his best to bring a pay-per-view to the UK.
"Next year is a very special occasion. I don't know if you all know, some of you weren't born at time, but next year is the 30-year anniversary of SummerSlam 1992. I've been talking about this non-stop because I'm gonna make it happen one way or another. I'll say it once, I'll say it a million times, the UK is going to get a significant pay-per-view if it's the last thing I do," McIntyre said in London.
Following some Yes! chants, Drew continued: "This is what we need to do. Look at us right now, everyone in that locker room buzzes to come to the UK because we're the craziest, most passionate fans in the world. Keep this up for this tour, keep it up for November, show WWE, show Vince McMahon we deserve this and I sure as hell will make it happen."
WWE haven't held a pay-per-view across the pond since Insurrextion 2003 in Newcastle upon Tyne. The company planned to hold a major show in the UK last year, with Drew McIntyre vs. Tyson Fury as the main event, but plans for the event were scrapped due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
