Tyson Fury is set to face Braun Strowman at WWE Crown Jewel on October 31st. He doesn’t have much time to prepare for the match, but Fury has been training hard at the WWE Performance Center.

TalkSports’ Sports Breakfast radio show recently spoke to Tyson Fury’s boxing promoter Frank Warren. He did not seem too happy about the fact that Fury won’t be getting this time to rest as they had planned. Fury wanted to do the match and he didn’t even talk to him about working for WWE before signing with Vince McMahon’s company.

“What can you say? He went out there to watch it and the next minute he’s involved in it, it’s unbelievable.

“But that’s Tyson. He’s supposed to be taking a rest and taking it easy, but he’s decided that he wants to do this and he’s going to do it…”

“No he didn’t [discuss it with me]. He’s done it and we’ve discussed it afterwards.”

“I’d be a liar if I said I was pleased with it, I’d prefer him not to do it but he’s doing it.” 

“I’d prefer he didn’t do it because it could jeopardize his boxing career. But he’s doing it and he’s his own man. In some ways I suppose it’s keeping him focused and keeping fit and well. It’s not like he’s a baby, he’s 30 years of age.”

Tyson Fury approached WWE years ago about coming in, but they couldn’t make things work at the time. Now he is set for one match, but his people from the boxing world apparently aren’t too thrilled with that.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
