I think they’ll take him. Wrestlers get an unfair reputation when it comes to their athletic abilities. While it’s true that their matches are predetermined, they are still out there putting in the work and the effort every single night and that takes a lot of talent. It can help wrestling quite a bit when a mainstream athlete shows up and now that might be the case again soon.
On Saturday, boxing’s Heavyweight Champion of the World Tyson Fury retained his title via knockout over Dillian Whyte. After the fight, Fury suggested that he was ready to retire from the sport and move on to something else. During the post fight media scrum, Fury mentioned that he might be appearing at Summerslam. Fury said that he had a great time when he appeared at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia and would love to be at the Cardiff, Wales event in September. Fury has wrestled a match for WWE before, defeating Braun Strowman via countout at Crown Jewel 2019.
Opinion: Something tells me that WWE would be thrilled to have Fury around again for some of its biggest events of the year. He is one of the most successful athletes in the world right now and knows how to work a crowd. Throw in that he seems to be a WWE fan in his own right and has already done something with them before and it feels like a natural fit if they can come to terms.
What do you think of Fury? What would you like to see him do at Summerslam or in Cardiff? Let us know in the comments below.
