Tyson Fury has sent a warning to Drew McIntyre on social media as rumours of a return to the WWE continue to mount.
‘The Gypsy King’ has the small matter of his trilogy fight against former WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder to contend with first, but could be tempted back into the world of sports entertainment.
Tyson Fury has the natural charisma and athleticism to return to WWE
Fury defeated Braun Strowman at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia last year before knocking out the ‘Bronze Bomber’ in Las Vegas in February.
And, provided he can repeat the feat against the American when they finally meet again, it seems as though the WWE champion is still firmly in his sights.
Speaking directly to the camera, Fury told the world: “Drew McIntyre; any time, any place, anywhere buddy. Let’s get it on!”
The Scot joined talkSPORT at the start of the year after winning the Royal Rumble in January to challenge Fury to return to the WWE.
Having since claimed the WWE championship against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 36, McIntyre is still keen on facing the 31-year-old.

Fury made his WWE in-ring debut against Braun Strowman last October
He said on Corey Graves’ After the Bell podcast: “I started poking some bears. I started going after Tyson Fury, Colby Covington, soccer player Chris Sutton in the UK, even Conor McGregor.
“Tyson and I have been going back and forth to the point where we’re trying to push this big UK pay-per-view that hasn’t happened since SummerSlam ‘92.
“And a lot of people have started talking about it to the point where people within the office are asking me, ‘Do you know something we don’t know? Is this really going to happen?
“Because you talk about it so much, yourself and Fury have got a dialogue going to the point where you’re both main eventing this Summerslam pay-per-view.
New WWE champion Drew McIntyre vows to take on Tyson Fury… after he's beat Chris Sutton!
“And that’s literally what I said. If I have to fight Tyson Fury in the UK to get this big UK pay-per-view…we’re absolutely going do it.”
If Fury and McIntyre were to face off next summer, it could mean yet more world championship heartache for Dillian Whyte.
The ‘Bodysnatcher’ has been ranked as the number one contender with the WBC for more than 1000 days and has been promised by chairman Mauricio Sulaiman he will fight the winner of Fury vs Wilder III.
Of course, the Brixton native must first get through his clash with former heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin on Saturday night, as the Russian would love nothing more than to crush Whyte’s heavyweight title dreams at Fight Camp in Brentwood.
