On Friday, WWE announced Tyson Fury will make his professional wrestling debut at WWE Crown Jewel on Oct. 31 when he steps into the ring with Braun Strowman. Fury first appeared on WWE TV at the SmackDown on Fox premiere on Oct. 4, shooting an angle with Strowman.
Speaking to Cathy Kelley, Triple H had glowing praise for Fury's commitment to WWE.
"I spent the last week with Tyson Fury at the Performance Center," he said. "When you talk about the dedication that it takes to be a pro at the highest level, he's the kind of guy who said, 'For this period of time, I'm in the WWE. I'm gonna take that level of laser focus and dedication and apply it to WWE.' It was harder for me to get him to not do stuff than it was to get him to try to do anything. He wanted to do everything and wanted to do it now. I kept telling everyone, 'Pull him back. Don't let him do that yet.' He's not looking to walk into WWE and be like, 'I'm gonna have a moment, punch Braun Strowman in the head, leave and make a paycheck.' He wants to be a WWE superstar. He wants to win everybody over and prove why he's here."
Triple H also believes that "Tyson is an entertainer first. And a boxer second."
While the WWE Executive Vice President is excited about Fury's commitment to wrestling, the boxer's co-promoter Frank Warren is ready for his wrestling run to be over. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
