British heavyweight Tyson Fury might make a habit of fighting more frequently in the WWE after he reportedly earned for his fight against Braun Strowman, the equivalent of what the WWE highest-paid athlete, Brock Lesnar earns in a year.
The former WBC heavyweight champion made a winning start to his fledgeling WWE career with stunning KO of Braun Strowman in a much-trumpeted fight in the oil-rich kingdom.
And for just a few minutes of exertion, Fury earned a reported £12million, the equivalent of WWE highest-earning Superstar, Brock Lesnar’s yearly salary.
While Fury was undoubtedly the highlight of Monday’s show, fans were also treated to a rematch of Cain Velasquez’s UFC clash with Brock Lesnar with the latter triumphing this time around after Velasquez tapped out.
With such a payday for the unbeaten British heavyweight, it appears that a perfect post boxing career awaits in the familiar surroundings of professional wrestling.
