Fury Has “Bright Future” In WWE
The fates seem to be aligned for Tyson Fury, as the challenger to WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder may be challenging for another title this April.
Fury, who competed for the WWE during their November event in Saudi Arabia, is rumored to return to the wrestling brand for their Wrestlemania event this April in Tampa, Florida. Per a leaked image Fury is slotted to face off with current WWE heavyweight champion and former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar in one of the card’s main events.
When asked of Fury’s future in the WWE, former WWE champion and current Executive Vice President of the publicly traded company, Paul “Triple H” Levesque thinks it is bright.
“I think the door’s open on our side, and the door’s open on his side – but there’s a lot of things in between now and then. That fight on February 22nd will be huge to him as to what his next steps are in all of this. So, we’re open to that stuff but it needs to be right for everybody,” Triple H told Metro.
“I think there’s thoughts out there of a lot of things with Tyson Fury. He had a blast working with us. It’s funny, one of the things that I learned with him doing the press for the other time he worked for us is that in his mind as a kid, he saw himself being a WWE superstar, not a boxer.
“The entertainment side of it, that showmanship side of him is in front,” the wrestler/executive said. “So I think he would love to do something more with us. He’d love to do a bigger thing. I think he understands the entertainment value. This is not, for him, about ‘I need to be the champion, or I need to be this or that.'”
