It appears that former WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury may not have to leave the ring when he eventually hangs up the gloves if events of Monday are anything to go by.
The unbeaten British heavyweight seems to be perfecting his next career move by testing out the vaudeville world of WWE.
On Monday night ‘The Gypsy King’ appeared on WWE Raw in California to continue his “beef” with Strowman – known as ‘The Monster Among Men’ – and sparked a huge “brawl” in the long-running sporting soap opera.
They confronted each other in the ring, before a “heated exchange” ended in the pair being separated by security. But their storyline scuffle continued, with Strowman’s fellow wrestlers having to step in to split them up in classic sports entertainment style.
The “bad blood” between the pair stems from a storyline which started at Friday’s SmackDown event.
Fury sat front row with his family and “took exception” when Strowman sent fellow wrestler Dolph Ziggler crashing towards him.
Lineal heavyweight champion Fury is set to face WBC champion Wilder in a rematch in February, but is currently unable to train because of the severe cuts he suffered against Wallin, when he needed more than 40 stitches.
There are now reports he could face Strowman in a wrestling match in Saudi Arabia later this month.
And with his showman swagger and gift of the gab, 6ft 9in Fury looks readymade to take the wrestling world by storm.
