Tyson Fury discusses cancelled WWE Plans. The WBC Heavyweight Champion revealed that he was scheduled for four major appearances in the WWE.
British Heavyweight Boxer, Tyson Fury, appeared in the WWE back in 2019. He was part of the Crown Jewel card where he faced and defeated Braun Strowman. That, so far, is his only WWE appearance. However, it seems that he was set to appear on four more events.
Speaking in an interview with Behind The Gloves, Fury revealed that he was due to appear on several shows including the WWE back in 2020. He also had meetings with Donald Trump and the Pope; all of which had to be called off due to Covid-19.

“I was supposed to go to SummerSlam last year and I was supposed to go to WrestleMania last year, and I was also supposed to fight Drew McIntyre in a pay-per-view event in the UK. But none of that happened thanks to COVID.
“So COVID’s cost me SummerSlam, Royal Rumble, pay-per-view with Drew McIntyre, the [Deontay] Wilder rematch, and the [Anthony] Joshua fight, so thank you, COVID. And I was supposed to meet the President of the Unites States, Donald Trump. I was supposed to meet the Pope of Rome, among other things, so it’s cost me a lot. It’s one of them things.”
Fury’s last boxing match was against Deontay Wilder. The Gypsy King came out victorious making him the first heavyweight in history to have held the WBA (Super), WBC, IBF, WBO, and The Ring magazine titles. A rematch with Wilder was set for July last year. However, Covid kept that match from happening. Fury finally announced that he was foregoing the trilogy after organizers failed to deliver a date for the event in 2020.
