After his win against Deontay Wilder, it now seems more likely than ever that WWE will pull out all the stops in order to try and get Tyson Fury in their ring for another match.
Tyson Fury defeated Deontay Wilder via a seventh-round TKO to claim the WBC and The Ring heavyweight titles on Saturday night in Las Vegas.
The Gypsy King now sits at the top of the boxing world once more, and there are now talks of a possible unification fight with fellow world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua to crown an undisputed champion.
However, if Fury decides to take a break from the boxing ring for a couple of months, the door could be open for him to have another match with WWE.
The undefeated boxer previously spent some time in WWE back in October 2019 which resulted in a match against Braun Strowman at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia.

Although the match certainly wasn’t memorable, it was good enough that WWE will likely invite him back for another match in the future.
Now he’s world heavyweight champion, it’s almost a certainty Fury will be invited back to WWE, and he should be booked to face one of these three superstars.
One match WWE will likely book for Fury if he returns to the squared circle is a second clash with Braun Strowman.
As previously mentioned, Fury and Strowman clashed at Crown Jewel last year in October, with The Gypsy King winning that night via countout.
Therefore, it wouldn’t be surprising if WWE books a rematch between the two. Even The Monster Among Men wants the match to happen.
Strowman tweeted following Fury’s win vs Wilder: “Hell of a W @Tyson_Fury what ya say wanna try your luck for my #IntercontinentalChampionship ????? #LetsRunItBack #GiveTheWorldWhatTheyWant #RealHeavyweights”
Out of all the possible matches for Fury from this list, a rematch with Strowman seems the likeliest to happen, possibly even at WrestleMania 36 later this year in April. We’ll have to wait and see.
Another superstar who would be a great opponent for Fury’s next WWE match would be WWE Champion Brock Lesnar.
The Beast was even rumoured to be The Gypsy King’s opponent for the Crown Jewel show in Saudi Arabia, but those plans were never officially booked.
Following his first match at Crown Jewel, Fury told the media that he would love to face Lesnar in a second match for WWE.
Back in January when talking to talkSPORT about his plans after Wilder, Fury said: “And, after I beat Deontay Wilder, I’m gonna take down Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania.”
It’s going to be difficult for WWE to book a Lesnar vs Fury match anytime soon, as The Beast will be defending the WWE title vs Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 36, but they could face each other in the ring in the future.
Probably not a superstar you expected to appear on this list, but Triple H should be in consideration to face Fury should he return to WWE in the future for another match.
The Game is one of the best superstars in WWE history. A 14-time world champion, he knows how to work the ring.
Best of all, he knows how to work the ring methodically, which is perfect for an inexperienced athlete like Fury when it comes to WWE.
Triple H can guide Fury around the ring in a 10-15 minute methodical match, putting him in the correct spots while also making him look strong.
The roadblocks that could hold WWE back from booking this match, besides Fury’s availability, are if the fans and The Game himself wants to take part in this match.
However, if it does take place, it could bring out the best of The Gypsy King in a WWE ring.News Now - Sport News
