Pro boxer Tyson Fury is returning to WWE TV on Friday’s SmackDown episode.
Fury won his WWE in-ring debut over Braun Strowman at last Thursday’s WWE Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia, by count out.
Friday’s SmackDown will be taped at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England, then air a few hours later on FOX. There’s no word yet on what WWE has planned for Fury in his hometown.
Below is WWE’s announcement on the appearance:
Tyson Fury returns to SmackDown on FOX this Friday
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?
Tune in to Friday Night SmackDown on FOX at 8/7 C to see what’s next for the two heavyweight competitors.
