They have a plan. Wrestling has a long history of having athletes from other sports coming in to try their hand in the squared circle. It offers an easy concept for fans to grasp and might bring some other fans from the other sport over with them. Now it seems that WWE has their eye on bringing back a champion from another sport who has worked with them in the past.

According to the US-Sun, WWE wants World Heavyweight Boxing Champion Tyson Fury to work with them in the new year but his visa issues are causing issues. The issue with the Fury has been linked to Daniel Kinahan, an Irish mob boss, who founded Fury’s representation company. Both WWE and Fury’s legal team are trying to work the situation out. The plan would be for Fury appear at the Royal Rumble to set up a match at WrestleMania. There is no word on what Fury would be doing or who he would be facing.

Fury has worked with WWE before. Check out some of his time in the wrestling world:

Opinion: This is the kind of situation that could be rather interesting to follow, as Fury could be quite the addition to both the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania. You don’t get that kind of A-list sports celebrity wanting to get involved with WWE very often and WWE is going to do everything they can to make it happen. Hopefully it does work, as Fury has done well enough during his time in WWE.

What do you think of the idea? Will Fury get to work with WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
