Although it has been reported that WWE have big plans for Tyson Fury, fans may have to wait to see the star back in a WWE ring.
Back on December 26th it was reported that the heavyweight boxing star is currently being prevented from entering the United States. This is due to his difficulty in obtaining a visa because of his association with alleged Irish crime boss Daniel Kinahan. It has been noted that Kinahan in a “friend and advisor” of Fury’s. These issues mean that Fury will miss the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania 39 despite WWE’s desire for him to appear at the events.
Tyson Fury Unwilling To Look Vulnerable
Writing in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer has now reported that Fury is seemingly unwilling to put people over or even look vulnerable with WWE.
“According to one major WWE source, he could not say the story wasn’t true but noted it was not something talked about. It was noted that Fury was not willing to put people over or even look vulnerable, and if he were to be in the Rumble as a surprise, what would he do and how does it even make sense for him to do a quick Rumble cameo given the amount of money it would cost to use him.”
Tyson Fury made his most recent WWE appearance at Clash At The Castle in Cardiff, Wales. At the event in September, Fury prevented Austin Theory from cashing in his Money In The Bank contract during the main event between Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre. After the match Fury got into the ring to show his respect to Reigns before signing a duet with McIntyre as the show went off the air.
Speaking immediately after the event Triple H said that the “door is always open” for Fury to work with WWE.
