Tyson Fury announced during his appearance on WWE’s Clash at the Castle that his opponent will be named next week.

WBC Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury (32-0-1) is back in the news, which shouldn’t surprise anyone. He has retired and not retired a number of times and recently called up for a fight with unified heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (20-0). signed within seven days. On Thursday, Fury announced that he would be ringside in WWE “Battle in the Castle” Event which took place today at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales. In particular, he would be on hand to see Scotsman Drew McIntyre take on Undisputed WWE Champion Roman Reigns.

This union between Fury and WWE shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone as they have a “speed dating” type of relationship. Fury hasn’t fully committed to them, but there have been loose talks since his debut in 2019. In October of that year, Fury showed up on Monday Night Raw and confronted WWE Superstar Braun Strowman after he was stared at on the FOX show Smackdown a few days earlier. The pair came into play on Raw, and this led to a match between them to be held at an event called “Crown Jewel” in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, months before the global pandemic hit its full impact.

When the match took place on Halloween, not much was to be expected from Fury as it was the first time he’d dipped his toe into this form of entertainment. But after watching the game, everyone was impressed by the Brit and he was trending on social media for his efforts before and after the fight. This was supposed to lead to Fury hosting another big event with WWE, but COVID happened and all those plans were shattered.

Tyson Fury was present at WWE’s Clash at the Castle event.

Some time passed, and the heavyweight champion didn’t bring it up until this past April when he knocked out Dillian Whyte (28-2).. After the fight, he announced his retirement and toyed with the idea of ​​returning to WWE. That was the first hint that the concept of another game was still in his head. Before saying that, he would go back and forth on social media with proud Scotsman Drew McIntyre, leading everyone to believe something was coming. Still, no one was really sure as Fury is a spontaneous person and does what he sees fit at the moment. A few weeks ago a wrestling event was announced in Cardiff that Fury would be attending which happened to be happening on the same day as the Clash at the Castle so a Fury announcement seemed imminent.

During the event earlier this morning, Fury was announced by WWE that he would be in attendance and as cameras were trained on him, he was given a loud ovation. With everyone wondering what his involvement during the Main Event would be, at one point in the match WWE’s Austin Theory ran down the aisle hoping to cash his money in the bank briefcase as both Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre appeared to be vulnerable. As Theory handed the referee the briefcase, he was hit by a right hand from Fury, knocking him unconscious and sending the 60,000+ in attendance into a frenzy. When the match was over, Fury climbed into the ring, stared at Reigns for a few minutes and then shook his hand.

During the post-fight press conference, Fury spoke about the event and took the opportunity to announce that he will announce his opponent and the fight date next week. The undisputed fight against Usyk would be preferable but he has some undisclosed injuries so if Fury wants to fight this year it has to be against someone else. Again, we’ll wait and see who will be Fury’s next opponent within the next seven days.
