Tyson Fury 'stalking' Drew McIntyre for WWE match and 'messaging Scot every DAY on social media'04/28/2021
WWE star Drew McIntyre has claimed Tyson Fury is 'stalking' him on social media and bombarding him with messages 'every day'.
WBC heavyweight king Fury entered the WWE universe in October 2019, clashing with Braun Strowman at Smackdown before beating the former Universal champion at the Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia.
And The Gypsy King is seemingly trying to set up a match with McIntyre by constantly direct messaging him.
The Scot told The Big Issue: "Tyson Fury is stalking me. It’s the most bizarre sentence.
"I’d wake up every day and I’ve got another message on social media from Tyson Fury. Maybe I should answer him.
"The UK deserves a significant pay-per-view. It’s such an incredible fanbase, a huge audience, they’re so passionate."
McIntyre, 35, would love to throw down with Fury in a blockbuster UK event.
He said: "There hasn’t been a huge show since 1992 when we sold out Wembley Stadium with over 80,000 people.

"I want to make that happen again, be that at Hampden or Ibrox or wherever it may be.
"Maybe Wembley again.
"But if it takes myself and Tyson Fury to draw some outside eyeballs besides just the WWE fans – the new WWE fans, we’ll call them – I want to make it happen."
WWE chief Triple H is willing to make the match, saying last September: “We could make Drew McIntyre v Tyson Fury work out, Tyson has got my number – we will make a call."
Fan favourite Fury is currently gearing up for his long-awaited undisputed heavyweight title fight with Anthony Joshua.
The first instalment of the pair's two-fight series – which will be worth a whopping £500million – is set to take place in Saudi Arabia.
July 24 is currently the date earmarked for the long-awaited Battle of Britain, although the fight could end up taking place in August.
But Fury's co-promoter Bob Arum is starting to have his doubts.
The 89-year-old told Boxing Scene: “Maybe we’ll breathe some life into Wilder, and Fury will fight Wilder and Joshua will fight (WBO mandatory challenger Oleksandr) Usyk.
“Eddie Hearn is busy trying to sell the London Bridge.
“Let me tell you – last time I talked to Eddie was early last week and he said he was going to have a signed agreement from the Saudis in 24 hours. Well, he’s a little late.
“Wouldn’t you be pessimistic if you haven’t heard from him or anybody for a week?
"We’re the promoter with Frank (Warren) of Fury and we haven’t heard from Eddie in a week.”
