Two people who made their names outside of the wrestling will be making their WWE in-ring debuts at WWE Crown Jewel on October 31, and now we could be set for a match between Tyson Fury and Cain Velasquez.
Fury will take on Braun Strowman, and Velasquez has a WWE Championship match with Brock Lesnar, but once they are done, Fury hasn’t ruled out a match with Velasquez in the future.
In an interview with MMA Junkie, Fury said:
“Yeah, listen. Me and Cain, we’ve got a rivalry going back from when he was UFC heavyweight champion, from a right few years ago. There was a lot of back and forward on social media back then. And, who knows, maybe that rivalry could spill over into WWE.”
He was then asked whether there is anyone in the world that he wouldn’t take on.
“I’d love to fight them all. I’m a prizefighter. I’ve never ducked a fight in my life, and I’ll fight anybody.”
It’s unlikely that Fury will have another match for WWE in the near future, given that he has a boxing rematch with heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder booked for the start of 2020.
Frank Warren, Fury’s promoter, admitted that he wasn’t best pleased that his client had decided to have a match in WWE, given the risk of injury.
