WWE does indeed have a date in mind for the expected Tyson Fury vs. Braun Strowman match.
Meltzer did note this isn’t as “official” but it’s the “prevailing talk.”
Fury was seen at ringside at Friday’s SmackDown premiere episode on FOX where he had a staredown with Strowman before jumping the barricade after the contest.
The angle happened when Strowman, The Miz & Heavy Machinery (Otis & Tucker) defeated AJ Styles, Randy Orton, Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode in a six-man tag team match. WWE has since offered Fury an open microphone on Monday’s RAW.
WWE will be announcing more matches for this show in the coming weeks. Here is the updated card:
- Brock Lesnar vs. Cain Velasquez
- Tyson Fury vs. Braun Strowman
