Tyson Fury Might Have A WWE Match Ahead Of Deontay Wilder Rematch
Tyson Fury could make a sensational in-ring WWE debut ahead of his highly anticipated rematch with Deontay Wilder, according to reports.
The 'Gypsy King,' 31, has previously said that his rematch with the WBC champ is slated for 22nd February in Las Vegas.
But the Athletic's Mike Coppinger has now suggested Fury could have a WWE match after his brilliant appearance on SmackDown's inaugural show on Fox.
He tweeted: "Tyson Fury is slated to fight Deontay Wilder in a Feb. 22 rematch, but apparently he'll step into the squared circle for a WWE match before then; there's a natural dance partner.
"Braun Strowman caught Fury's ire during a spot on the debut of WWE Smackdown on Fox. Not a one-off."

The former unified heavyweight champ had a heated confrontation with Braun Strowman when he hopped the barrier, only for WWE security to hold him back as he shouted "dosser."
WWE has since confirmed that they have offered Fury an open microphone on next week's Monday Night Raw -- that is, should he accept the invitation.

The wrestling promotion posted on its website: "After hopping the guardrail this past Friday night on SmackDown in an attempt to confront Braun Strowman, the always controversial Fury will now be offered an open forum this Monday night on Raw to speak his mind following the explosive incident that saw a small army of security struggle to keep him from getting into the ring to mix it up with 'The Monster Among Men.'"
The 'Gypsy King' competed last month against Otto Wallin and picked up a victory on points, despite an early scare that saw him busted open at the hands of the little-known Swede.
And Fury has had over 40 stitches removed from the cut above his right eye and reiterated his fight with Wilder will move ahead in early 2020.
KO artist Wilder, 33, is scheduled to rematch Cuban star Luis Ortiz on 23rd November for the WBC championship.
