Tyson Fury Reveals Scrapped WWE Plans Due To COVID-19 Pandemic

Tyson Fury

In a conversation with Behind The Gloves, ‘The Gypsy King’ Tyson Fury discussed plans which had been made between him and WWE, which went unseen by fans due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Fury defeated Braun Strowman in his WWE in-ring debut, at the Crown Jewel event in October 2019. He was also involved in a segment featuring Strowman and The B-Team the following November in Manchester, England (Fury’s hometown).

Speaking in the interview with Behind The Gloves, Fury commented that he was set to make an appearance at WrestleMania 36, Summerslam 2020 and an unnamed Royal Rumble, alongside plans for a very high-profile match against two-time WWE Champion and fellow UK native Drew McIntyre at a pay-per-view in the UK.

I was supposed to go to SummerSlam last year and I was supposed to go to WrestleMania last year, and I was also supposed to fight Drew McIntyre in a pay-per-view event in the UK. But none of that happened, thanks to COVID.

WWE fans, and Fury fans, will have to wait and see what the future holds for possible crossovers, and if the restrictions will allow for matches like these to take place in the future.
