WWE does indeed have a date in mind for the expected Tyson Fury vs. Braun Strowman match.
Dave Meltzer noted on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio that the likely date for a match between the WWE star and professional heavyweight boxer will be at WWE Crown Jewel.
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 presents the Crown Jewel pay-per-view event on Thursday, October 31, 2019 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia at the King Fahd International Stadium that will air on the WWE Network.
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
