Tyson Fury is reportedly set to be a major part of WWE WrestleMania 39. However, a reported connection to organized crime may prevent him from taking part in the glitz and glamor of WrestleMania.
Tyson Fury has been a part of WWE Crown Jewel 2019 and most recently, WWE Clash at the Castle 2022. Now, it’s been reported that WWE has major plans for Fury involving the upcoming WrestleMania season but Fury is reportedly barred from entering the United States of America.
Tyson Fury Is Reportedly Losing Out On ‘Millions’ Of Dollars
According to a report by The US Sun, WWE had plans for Tyson Fury to appear at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas on January 28 as part of the WWE Royal Rumble. The eventual goal was to have Fury wrestling at WrestleMania 39.
Tyson Fury is reportedly banned from entering the United States due to his links to alleged Irish mob boss Daniel Kinahan. A source told The Sun that the boxer’s immigration status is “tricky” but also noted that WWE has other options because of their premium live events that take place outside of the United States.
“Tyson and the legal team or getting this whole grey and tricky area resolved. But non-entry, quite simply put, means non-payment.
“And people may not believe this but turning up for a match or being part of the shows, not even fighting, earns him several million dollars.
“So this issue with his working visa in the States is costing him a large amount of cash.
“The WWE works with foreign athletes all the time in aiding their visa processing for appearances.
“The legal team are on the sidelines offering support in this matter, but ultimately getting approval is on Tyson’s head and how US immigration assesses his case.”
The source added: “It is not all bad news for Tyson, because there are other options for WWE through their premium live events outside of the US.
In the past, Triple H’s spoken about Tyson Fury making the full-time jump to professional wrestling with Fury being very eager about the move once his other commitments have been completed.
