With rumours circulating that Tyson Fury is set for a return to WWE action, a new report has given an insight in to the potential timeframe.
Tyson Fury successfully retained his WBC Heavyweight Championship in March 2022 at Wembley Stadium in a matchup with Dillian Whyte. After the contest ‘The Gypsy King’ announced that he was retiring from boxing with an undefeated record.
Although time will tell whether Fury decides he will step back inside a boxing ring, in particular for a unification bout against Oleksandr Usyk, he did also comment in the same month that he was looking forward to a return to WWE.
Over the last two years there has been an increasing social media rivalry between Tyson Fury and Drew McIntyre, with the jibes between the pair ramping up in recent months leading to plenty of speculation that the pair will face each other, however with nothing concrete in place.
A new report from GiveMeSport has claimed that WWE is already in discussions with Fury about a return in the Autumn. Discussions are apparently underway, although no contracts have been signed at this stage. Whilst an appearance would have to take Fury’s existing commitments in to account, the timeframe would fit with being part of Clash At The Castle on 3rd September.
Further, the report notes that it is unclear whether Tyson Fury would be making an appearance or actually competing upon his return.
In October 2019, Tyson Fury made his WWE debut to confront Braun Strowman. The pair would go on to face each other at Crown Jewel, with ‘The Gypsy King’ knocking his opponent out. They would then team on a house show in Manchester, England the following month.
