McIntyre headlined a WWE Clash at the Castle on Saturday night, as 60,000 fans chanted his name ahead of his match with Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns.
The Scottish Warrior was unable to defeat the Tribal Chief due to intervention by The Bloodline’s newest member, Solo Sikoa, in an interesting encounter that also saw Tyson Fury knock out Austin Theory as he attempted to cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase.
Fury, who was seated ringside, lifted Roman’s hand after the fight before turning his focus to McIntyre. Many expected their social media comments to lead to an altercation, but instead Tyson led an impromptu karaoke session with the Scottish celebrity.
Fury is poised to return to boxing for the time being, with a fight later this year. However, at the Clash at the Castle post-match press conference, he revealed that he would like to work with WWE again in the future.
While in charge, Triple H stated that the door is always open for Fury to return to the WWE ring once he has officially retired from boxing.
However, following the match, the former WWE Champion said that, while he loved the sing-along, he’s still more than eager to face the British boxer.
“We talked earlier today and had a good laugh at the banter. But I still told him, ‘You never know if the time is right.’ We can enter that ring.’ It doesn’t matter if we’re laughing right now. I want a big fight that will attract people’s attention when the time arrives.
And I watched him shaking hands with Roman as I was in the corner, despondent from the third spear. The audience was not pleased, and I wasn’t persuaded that he wasn’t going to deck me, until he began singing.”
