Tyson Fury has $15 million reasons to enjoy his stay in the WWE, as the former unified world heavyweight champion prepares for his pro wrestling debut on October 31st.
Fury has cast doubt on the idea of his return to boxing to face WBC World heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder this February, as he warned there’s a “hell of a chance” that he stays in the pro graps game.
“Who knows what lies beneath?”: says Fury of what happens after he faces Braun Strowman in Saudi Arabia at WWE’s Crown Jewel event. “Maybe Velasquez, maybe Lesnar.”
“I was supposed to be resting while the eye mended but I’m excited about 385lbs of Braun coming at me. Yeah, me against Wilder is the biggest fight in boxing but I’m not thinking about that now. I’m just enjoying my life – and concentrating on WWE.”
“People say that WWE is a fake but now I know the hard reality,” Fury said of training at the WWE’s Orlando based Performance Center. “It’s the most physically taxing sport I’ve ever been involved in.”
“My first days of training opened my eyes to how athletic these guys really are. There’s always going to be injuries in a contact sport but I’m not worried. I’m a born prize-fighter who’s been fighting his whole life.”
