WBC heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury has revealed that he has a WWE career firmly in his sights.
The Gypsy King appeared in grand fashion at the WWE’s Clash At The Castle, their first UK stadium event since SummerSlam 1992.
The boxer was heavily involved in the main event between Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
Fury clearly has the presence and the charisma to be involved in the WWE and appeared at the Clash At The Castle press conference following the event to talk about a potential future with the company.
He said: “At the moment, I’m a heavyweight world champion and I have plenty of fights that I have to take in the next few years, but I really have a passion for WWE, as you saw me at Crown Jewel and here and a couple of other events.
“Never say never, let’s just say, Triple H is here and I’d definitely be open to it in the future for sure.”
The previously retired star noted that he would be announcing his next bout within the week in what will be his first match-up since knocking out Dillian Whyte at Wembley.
One man who would be more than keen to get Fury on a full-time contract is the new WWE boss Triple H, who also appeared at the press conference.
Triple H commented: “When Tyson Fury does finish his work inside the boxing ring, probably the entire time as the world heavyweight champion, retiring undefeated, but when he does that, the door is always open for him here, we’d love to do business with him. We enjoy what we get to do with him now.
“Having him, and his family here is our pleasure. I know they mess with each other, I saw the look between him and Roman Reigns tonight, when the time comes and Tyson Fury and I have that conversation, I can guarantee you this, we’re gonna have to build some bigger stadiums, somewhere, to hold that event.”
The moment of the night came courtesy of the British fighter when Money In The Bank holder Austin Theory tried to force his way into the main event.
The WWE star copped a right hook for his troubles as the undefeated boxer sent him for an early nap to the adulation of the crowd.
Fury later had a confrontation with retaining champion Roman Reigns after the match, which ended without either coming to blows and instead shaking hands.
Standing face-to-face Tyson towered over the usually formidable-looking Reigns.
Then, in perhaps the least predictable and most unconventional moment of the night, Fury grabbed a microphone to compliment Drew McIntyre on his performance and then began serenading the fans in Wales with a version of Don McLean’s ‘American Pie’.
The almost seven-foot tall behemoth has been inside the WWE ring before when he squared off against Braun Strowman at the Saudi Arabian Crown Jewel event in 2019.
It wouldn’t be surprising to catch the 32-0 boxer competing again inside the squared circle.
