Undefeated boxing heavyweight champion Tyson Fury makes his WWE in-ring debut against Braun Strowman in just 48 hours at the Crown Jewel pay-per-view in Saudi Arabia.
Fury and Strowman’s feud has received positive reviews from the WWE Universe and the build-up has indeed lived up to the hype. While The Gypsy King is to inevitably walk out of the King Fahd International Stadium as the victor, the anticipation for his WWE debut has only raised the bar for the huge marquee match.
Ahead of clash with The Monster on Thursday, Fury was interviewed by Telegraph during which he gave fans a sneak peek of what lies in store for him post-October 31.
“I’m an entertainer and fast learner, so I’ve been getting the best out of it. It’s taken my mind off boxing completely.”
WWE planted the seeds for the feud during the gala Friday Night SmackDown premiere on FOX earlier this month. The following week on Monday Night RAW, both men got highly physical, thus making their match official.
“I wouldn’t be in training camp at the moment, anyway. But it gives me something to do. I didn’t want October and November off. I knew this would be a month-long job and I knew I would be busy.”
Fury is yet to fully settle down as a WWE Superstar but that doesn’t seem to be happening anytime soon. The Gypsy King is booked for a big-money rematch against Deontay Wilder in February and his future in the business will become clearer once he is through with that fight.
“Never say never, but I’ve got nothing planned for the future with wrestling.”
Last week, Fury was ambushed by Strowman at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando. The Monster currently has the upper hand in this feud but that’s going to change when The Gypsy Kings knocks him out cold this Thursday in Riyadh.
