Fury had been involved with WWE for the past month, getting in a feud with Braun Strowman beginning with the SmackDown premiere episode on FOX in early August. The two sides would continue feuding on WWE programming in the following weeks and culminated in a match at WWE Crown Jewel where Fury emerged victorious.

This is just the latest foray into pro wrestling for Fury, who is coming off a win over Otto Wallin back in September. Fury has been linked to a potential rematch against WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder for February 2020, but that has yet to be officially announced as Wilder is preparing for a title defense against Luis Ortiz on November 23.

In a short interview with WWE immediately after the match at Crown Jewel, Fury addressed his WWE future and said he would see what happens next given the rematch against Wilder.

"I've got a big fella called Deontay Wilder to see to, February 22nd, and then we'll see where we go from there," Fury said.

WWE wrote the following on Fury's upcoming appearance on SmackDown:

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?
