Tyson Fury is set to announce his WWE plans when he joins wrestling superstars as well as UFC legend Cain Velasquez for a major announcement amid preparations for his big rematch with Deontay Wilder.
Fury will link up with WWE Champion Brock Lesnar, Velasquez, Paul Heyman, Rey Mysterio, Braun Strowman as well as Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events and Creative Triple H for a big press conference this Friday at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
There is no concrete information regarding WWE’s upcoming major announcement but rumours have been suggesting that The Gypsy King will take part in the company’s upcoming Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia on October 31 where he could clash with Strowman.
The Lineal Heavyweight Champion made a surprise appearance on SmackDown’s debut episode on FOX last Friday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles where he sat on the front row with his family.
The 31-year-old then got into a heated confrontation with Strowman who squared up to him and lifted his fists while the crowd egged them on to get physical.
The Monster Among Men, who was competing in an Eight Man Tag Team Match, picked up Dolph Ziggler and threw him against the barricade in front of the former WBA, WBO an IBF World Heavyweight Champion with such force that he dropped him back to his seat.
Fury then jumped the barricade looking to get even with the ex-RAW Tag Team Champion but was stopped by an army of security guards and was escorted to the back.
The British boxing star returned on RAW last Monday night to address the situation and demanded an apology from the 6ft 8in, 385lb behemoth but it all got out of hand and a brawl erupted between the two heavyweights.
Security couldn’t contain them and so a raft of WWE superstars emptied the locker room to come out and stop the fight.
Some of the wrestlers managed to walk Strowman backstage but that was when the ex-NXT star declared that he will never apologise to Fury and promised that he will “get these hands”.
The RAW superstar walked back out and restarted his scrap with the undefeated boxer until he was once again taken to the back.
The boxer is currently preparing for his big rematch with Wilder, which is expected to take place on February 22 in Las Vegas.
However, that didn’t stop him from getting physical with Strowman and possibly sharing the ring with the super heavyweight again in Riyadh on Halloween.
Lesnar and Velasquez are also expected to clash for the WWE Championship in the Middle East nine years after their unforgettable UFC fight.
Velasquez defeated The Beast via TKO on the first round to become UFC Heavyweight Champion at UFC 121.
