Braun Strowman Launches Surprise Attack On Tyson Fury At The WWE Performance Center
Braun Strowman launched a sneak attack on Tyson Fury ahead of their eagerly-anticipated clash at WWE Crown Jewel.
The Brit heavyweight, 31, will make his in-ring WWE debut at the PPV in Saudi Arabia on October 31 and has been training at the WWE Performance Center.
And a video on WWE's YouTube channel showed Fury learning the ropes with an opponent in the ring.
When the 'Gypsy King' whipped himself into the ropes, the boxing star was blindsided as Strowman came flying in and shoulder-barged him off his feet.
Fury hit the canvas and instantly grabbed his ankle as the 'Monster Among Men' laughed on his way out of the ring.
As the WWE superstar exited the building, an infuriated Fury yelled: "I'll see you in Saudi, you big bum."
And Fury also made sure he had the last word as he called him a "dosser."
WWE released in a statement: "In preparation for his in-ring debut at WWE Crown Jewel, Fury has been deep in training at the WWE Performance Center looking to perfect his new craft.
"In the middle of today's training session, Braun Strowman dished out a rude lesson of his own and blindsided the 'Gypsy King' with a vicious hit.
"The attack left the lineal heavyweight champion clearly hobbled and fuming over the surprise assault by the 'Monster Among Men.'
"Will Fury be fully healed for WWE Crown Jewel or will the attack tip the scales in the direction of the mighty Strowman?"
As first reported by The @nypost, a confrontation between @BraunStrowman and @Tyson_Fury took their rivalry to a whole other level. https://t.co/yPNZLMAr2K

Former unified heavyweight champ Fury was in attendance for SmackDown's inaugural show on Fox earlier this month.
During the show, the 'Gypsy King' hopped the barrier and was held back by security as he tried to confront Strowman.
Fury, who is reportedly earning a whopping £12m for his involvement with WWE, would later make an appearance on Monday Night Raw and would end up getting into a brawl with the 'Monster Among Men.'
Crown Jewel is slated to take place on 31st October at the King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh.
