Tyson Fury has a lot of skills that could translate to the pro wrestling world, and Triple H is well aware of that fact. 2019’s Crown Jewel event likely won’t be the only time fans see Fury booked for a big event.
Fury showed up at Clash at the Castle, where he took out Austin Theory before he could cash in his Money in the Bank contract. He also had a sing-along with Drew McIntyre after the show was over.
While speaking to the Sporting News, Triple H stated that be believed Tyson Fury has the potential to do special things in WWE.
“I think Tyson Fury is chomping at the bit to get in the ring. The question is, which ring will he get into? Is it going to be the boxing ring, or is it going to be the WWE ring? We were just together in Cardiff. We had a long talk about it. He’s as enamored as ever in wanting to do this with us. I think he knows he’s got a few big fights left in him in the boxing world. I think he’s going to capitalize on those fights as you are hearing. Selfishly, I want him to come work with us. Also, selfishly, I want to see those fights. I hope he knocks those out, and I hope he stays interested because I do think with the dedication and the drive he has that he could do something special with us as well.”
We’ll have to see how long it takes for WWE to book Tyson Fury once again. Odds are, he will draw a lot of mainstream attention whenever they can lock him down on another card. In the meantime, he will still be a super fan.
