On Friday, all signs indicate that Tyson Fury will be announced to face fellow giant Braun Strowman in a professional wrestling match on October 31st in Saudi Arabia.
The WWE, the world’s leading wrestling brand, has seen Fury appear on both their Friday Night Smackdown and Monday Night Raw franchises the past seven days, both times confronting Strowman, teasing a match between the two.
Fury’s co-promoter Frank Warren is glad his client is having fun with the organization but hopes Fury does not suffer an injury to put a February title fight with Deontay Wilder on hold.
“Tyson Fury loves it,” Warren told Metro.co.uk. “That brawl clip doing the rounds on social media has something like 4 million views.
“His profile gets bigger every time and he’s doing us promoters a real favor by going on WWE. But truthfully, I don’t like the risk of his cut opening up. Tyson’s a law unto himself. It’s risky though, no doubt about that. In an ideal world I’d prefer he didn’t do it, but it’s all about the bigger picture for him. He’s a natural wrestling star.”
“I’m still awaiting the call from Tyson to tell me he’s finished with this WWE stuff,” Warren said, but all signs indicate the “Gypsy King” will be in a WWE ring at least until November.
