5 Reasons Why Tyson Fury Is Perfect For WWE As A Full-Time Wrestler

Tyson Fury

Tyson Fury is never one to stray away from the spotlight, even when he’s not ramping up to his next foray into the ring. It could be said that the ‘Gypsy King’ is the perfect sporting icon to make the switch from being a pugilist to being the king of the squared circle at some point in the future. Of course, we’ve seen him in there before, but could he go from a cameo appearance to being a champion?

Tyson Fury still has things he wants to achieve in his current position as two-time world heavyweight boxing champion. Starting with his highly anticipated trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder, Fury is looking to put an end to the ongoing feud against ‘The Bronze Bomber’ who is looking to resurrect his career somewhat after losing to the Englishman in their last bout in February 2020. After this fight, there is of course the mouth-watering prospect of a fight against Anthony Joshua in what would definitely be one of the fights of the century.

Fury is considered the favorite to win the fight by Bwin Sports for his upcoming fight against Wilder and many of boxing’s fraternity can only see that outcome, too. One of which is Mike Tyson, who of course is just one other boxer who made a move into the WWE when he first appeared at WrestleMania XIV in 1998.

Tyson Fury has the character

Fury already has his character, The Gypsy King. The self-titled fighter from a travelling family is proud of his roots. He says he’s untouchable; his record with the gloves on would currently prove that. Look at the last undefeated fighter who came into the WWE, Floyd Mayweather. He made quite the impact at No Way Out back in 2008 by breaking Big Show’s nose.

The size of the man

Fury’s 6ft 9 frame sets him up perfectly for a tilt in the WWE. Look at when he took on Braun Strowman in 2019. Strowman is a monster of a man, but Fury stands an inch taller, he has the stature to fit into the heavyweight category. He’s famed for his agility in the ring too; he’s arguably ideal to come into the sport.

He’s got the moves

In the first fight against Wilder, Fury found himself on the canvas. Something which he’d not experienced before. But in true WWE style when all seemed lost, Fury got to his feet with some suggesting he did it in the style of the legendary Undertaker and it’s not hard to see why!

Is the plan already in place?

As we already mentioned about his character, it seems that fellow Brit and current WWE star Drew McIntyre is keen to get into the ring with his countryman. McIntyre offered Fury a challenge of a matchup back in April 2020 which Fury accepted but it’s yet to come to fruition. However, the prospect has not gone away as McIntyre recently said that Fury
is ‘stalking’ him as he wakes up to messages from the boxer everyday.

Respect of the legends

Triple H has said in an interview that he brings in a different level of sport to the game. He brings a popularity that would help both Fury and the sport and will allow the boxer to be ‘the entertainer he was born to be’. The former wrestler and current WWE Chief Operating Officer said he would love to have him back in the stable.
