Tyson Fury has confirmed his status for WWE Clash At The Castle – and it’s good news for fans of ‘The Gypsy King’!
Tyson Fury has been heavily linked to WWE’s Clash At The Card since it was first announced back in April, though it quickly became apparent that he wouldn’t be wrestling on the card. Fury was expected to face Drew McIntyre but with McIntyre aspiring for something a bit bigger, Tyson was left off.
He will, however, be in attendance at the premium live event. In a video posted to WWE’s BT Sport Twitter page, the retired boxer confirmed his status for Saturday night.

GiveMeSport’s Louis Dangoor was first to report Tyson Fury’s attendance for the 3 September event. Dangoor noted that, although Fury was expected to be inside Principality Stadium, he “almost certainly” wouldn’t be participating in any physical activity.
This will mark Tyson Fury’s first WWE appearance since the 8 November 2019 SmackDown. He had appeared alongside Braun Strowman and laid out The B-Team, noting that they should form a tag team together. He initially appeared during SmackDown’s debut on FOX, setting up a match vs. Braun Strowman for Crown Jewel.
Tyson Fury announced his retirement from professional boxing on 12 August, going out with a record of 32 wins and 1 draw. His final fight was on 23 April, defeating Dillian Whyte by TKO.
