Tyson Fury Accepts WWE Raw Open Mic & Sends Warning To Braun Strowman
Oct 09 2019
Heavyweight contender Tyson Fury is jumping in with both feet - into the world of WWE. The show was heavily hyped due to it's network debut on FOX. Fury jumped the barricade after having a staredown with Braun Strowman and Strowman tossing Dolph Ziggler into Fury where he was escorted away from ringside by security.
Fury, 31, and Strowman exchanged phrases and the Brit tried to enter the ring exclusively to be restrained by plenty of safety guards. The 6ft 9in Fury rose to his feet with both men appearing close to coming to blows as the Brit shouted "dosser" - a trademark taunt of his.
The WWE issued a statement, revealing that Fury would have an "open mic" to say whatever he wanted on their broadcast.
However, the wrestler then began to provoke Fury, at first by waving his fists at him, then apparently by offending him.
"I was insulted in front of my full family by Braun Strowman, it got a little bit heated and we saw what happened", Fury said in an Instagram video, in which he also accepted the WWE's invitation to appear on Monday.
According to Boxing Scene, Fury stated in 2017 he would consider transitioning into pro-wrestling, more specifically WWE.
Wilder has agreed to face Fury again as long as he comes through his next fight against Luis Ortiz unscathed on November 23.
