One wrestling veteran wants to see AEW bring in Tyson Fury at All In.
Tyson Fury is one of boxing’s biggest stars in recent years and WWE has not been shy about using The Gypsy King on their shows in recent years. Fury made his in-ring debut at Crown Jewel in 2019 where he defeated Braun Strowman by count out. Any further matches between the two stars fell by the wayside as the global pandemic shut down the world just a few short months after that first match.
Tyson Fury did, however, find himself back in a WWE ring at Clash at the Castle in 2022 as the company looked to make the most of Fury’s fame in the UK to make a splash. In the main event between Drew McIntyre and Roman Reigns, Fury floored Austin Theory with a punch to stop him from cashing in his Money In The Bank briefcase. The show ended in bizarre fashion with Fury and McIntyre singing in the ring despite McIntyre losing to Reigns.
Tyson Fury touted for AEW All In
With AEW about to invade Wembley Stadium on August 27th, former WCW booker Kevin Sullivan wants Tony Khan’s company to copy WWE’s playbook and bring either Tyson Fury or his fellow English boxing star Anthony Joshua to be part of the festivities:
Sullivan stated on his Tuesday with the Taskmaster:
“[WWE] used Tyson Fury one time. It was in [Saudi Arabia], and they didn’t make a big thing out of it. Well, boxing is at a zenith right now in England. [Anthony] Joshua just knocked out a guy last weekend. Fury’s coming back to fight. I would bring one of those guys in and do something with them.
“Going back, not just to [WWE] WrestleMania and [Backlash in] Puerto Rico, when they bring in a celebrity, it brings wrestling to a different level. Bad Bunny has done an incredible job. The [Logan] Paul kid has done an incredible job. I think if [AEW] they brought Fury in or even Joshua in, just give a little sprinkle, not that they need to, because they’re obviously going to sell out, but it would just put the cherry on the soda.”
Without any mention of UK celebrities or boxing stars, AEW has now sold over 80,000 tickets for All In which will be headlined by MJF defending the AEW World Championship against Adam Cole.
