It is a match which has got fans of both wrestling and boxing talking, and Triple H says Fury is a competitor who has been on his radar for some time.
“Part of my job is recruiting the best athletes from around the world [for WWE], whether that be from the NFL, athletics, soccer or wherever,” he said.

“When they’re showmen like Tyson Fury is, it makes that job so much easier and I can tell you that from him coming to our Performance Center down in Florida he has taken to this like a fish to water.
“His footwork, his athleticism, everything is there. Plus, is there a better showman on the planet than Tyson Fury? He’s custom made to do this and he’s been on our radar for some time.
“He’s built for this as a showman but he also matches up to Braun Strowman [physically].”
