WWE has announced that Lineal Heavyweight Boxing Champion Tyson Fury will appear on this Friday’s episode of SmackDown on FOX.
Fury defeated Braun Strowman at Crown Jewel in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia last Thursday via countout.
WWE.com says the following:
In the wake of a debut victory at WWE Crown Jewel, Tyson Fury will head to Friday Night SmackDown this week on FOX.
As reported on WWE Backstage, The Gypsy King is slated to appear when the blue brand broadcasts from the lineal heavyweight champion’s hometown of Manchester, England. With Fury in the building, Braun Strowman shouldn’t be far behind as the two brawlers have unfinished business.
Are Fury and Strowman headed for another epic collision?
It is believed that Fury flew home from Saudi Arabia on a private jet and was not part of the group that got stranded and missed the following day’s SmackDown taping.
SmackDown this week is being taped in Fury’s hometown of Manchester, England and so will be broadcast a few hours later.
WrestleTalk.com will have both live spoiler coverage during the taping, and then also live coverage of the show while it airs this Friday.
