Tyson Fury is no stranger to the world of professional wrestling having first popped up on the debut episode of SmackDown airing on FOX network; he made a brief stint in 2019 seeing him take on the 'Monster Among Men' – Braun Strowman at WWE Crown Jewel.
Fury has been reported to have recently re-ignited his relationship with WWE by stating that he plans on returning to face none other than Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania on April 5 after his rematch with Deontay Wilder.
Fury isn’t the first outside superstar to cross-over into the world of sports entertainment and certainly won’t be the last, there is simply too much money to be made.
Shaquille O’Neal made the brief switch to participate in several WWE events, most notably orchestrating an altercation with fellow giant – The Big Show.
O’Neal was also a surprise entrant in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 32.

- John Cena would love to earn a spot at WrestleMania 36
Snoop Dogg has also appeared in various WWE segments over the years, alongside the likes of cousin ‘The BOSS’ Sasha Banks.
The list goes on for some time, but you get the picture!
Tyson Fury has a massive task on his hands with his up and coming rematch against WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder on February 22 following their first fight which resulted in a draw.
At 31 years old it begs the question to ponder over how long Fury has left in the tank, how much more he is able to push his body, and as well, how much he wants to do now that he has achieved superstardom and an unprecedented level of success. Is he still hungry?
It seems the world would like to see Fury stick around for the next few years at least having never seen a Fury vs Anthony Joshua mega-fight.
Largely depending on the outcome of the result against Wilder, we shall have to wait and see what is in store for the Gypsy King.
WWE chairman Vince McMahon wouldn’t hesitate to tie Fury down to deal as he would smell financial gain and see nothing but dollar signs with an attraction as big as Tyson.
We’re also heading into WrestleMania season and so we may be granted a few tricks up their sleeve as we have done over the years previously – let’s wait and see, but options are very much open for Fury at the moment and whatever he decides to do, it is guaranteed to make money!News Now - Sport News
