    Default Tyson Fury wants to be a Wrassler

    Ok so guilty of putting this in boxing talk . But seriously...how smart is this considering his eye was opened up like a venus flytrap just 2+ weeks ago Ever the showman though. Needs to work on his scripted line delivery though. Beginning to wonder if he's not looking for an exit route

    I was going to say born for this but he was rubbish using a script. I laughed at the perfectly heighted security guys shuffling in front of them

    Fury has the right personality and attitude for WWE, but I don’t think he has the right athletic ability for it. I doubt he could ever seriously do it

    It is a good marketing move, he should do the same at UFC and MMA events before moving on to comic con.

    Gotta say as a fan of boxing and a fan of "wrasslin" (mostly the 1980's stuff of my childhood) I think Tyson Fury could have a brilliant second career in it, but he's going to need time and he's going to need to loosen up a bit. That's where he does so well in boxing with his trash talk, but then again there's no limits there and WWE is catering to a younger more PG/PG-13 demographic.

    I thought Conor McGregor was the best guy for WWE...he's got more of the natural swagger, but again PG/PG-13 audience kinda iffy there.


    For "wrasslin" Tyson will need to train up on a fair few things, but I expect it's fun for the fella which is nice.



    So let's say Tyson vs Braun at a PPV....Tyson needs to do a little Dusty Rhodes/Ali shuffle. A Scoopslam. And an elbow or leg drop whatever he's most comfortable with......maaaaaybe maybe bring out the old British Bulldog running powerslam, but that's got a lot that could go wrong and I'm sure Braun ain't a light guy. With a scoopslam Braun can help with a little jump and it's up and over and safe for all involved.


    That would get a big pop from the crowd I'm sure


    Some boxers should have had a go at wrasslin....Shannon Briggs, great physique, very eager to talk, got his own unique look, athletic, emotive, already got a catchphrase "Let's Go Champ" ...he's fucking made for it.

    I have no doubt.

    Well A#1 WWE schedule is murder, all those dudes do is travel and wrestle. Granted it ain't like they've got to make every night count so much as it used to be, but the travel is hell. So that HAS to be worse than boxing twice a year if that.


    For wrasslin the key is (and Fury really should be good with this) being larger than life....2 very important things that helps one come across as larger than life are two things Tyson Fury enjoys.

    1. Steroids
    2. Cocaine


    So yeah get on those again and he'll be doing just fine...get him a full length mink coat and he'll be king of the ring

    Just for comparisons sake....

    James 'Buster' Douglas




    Buster was working with TRUE talent in 'Macho Man' Randy Savage. The Macho Man was incredible and could get heat and draw the fans in like no other! Didn't have to do any talking, just work in the ring, got a big pop, worked with 2 all time great superstars of the industry



    'Iron' Mike Tyson



    Again tremendous talent there 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin great on the mic, great worker, very believable with his talking and his work which is what makes him an all time great as a wrassler.


    Floyd 'Money' Mayweather Jr.


    Big Show is a hell of an athlete, never the best talker, but he's a really good worker, but this was some cartoon shit just due to the size difference. Just like in movies and tv shows there's a limit to what some people buy....with this Big Show is fucking huge, Floyd is tiny. Floyd would have been better paired vs a smaller guy who was a better talker...I'm thinking Chris Jericho would have been mint for that, but Jericho already worked with Tyson. .....all that said Floyd DID break Big Show's nose so there's that little bit of realness to it.


    Then of course Ali vs Antonio Anoki and Ali vs Gorilla Monsoon but I won't get into those. Ali really liked Gorgeous George and began talking trash on account of him....





    There's showmanship to boxing like there's showmanship to wrasslin, but it's got to be believable, got to strike a nerve

    Everyone knows Braun Strowman will squash Fury like a bug.

    Crazy stuff. The man apparently wastes no time, looks like wwe is putting these two on a ppv on Halloween night . No doubt it will do well and he's a natural pitchman but cannot get away from the big IF being that cut reopening and screwing up the Feb Wilder date. Wrestling has gone a bit PG compared to the early days and it's not like we have guys like Terry Funk or Flair blading anymore to get the blood flowing but all it takes in a taped wrist, elbow etc. I really hope and pray they don't put Fury in a pair of speedo tights.

    Bad move on Tyson. Wrong move will open the eye, just an accident and the entire rematch whole world is waiting for is OFF! not worth the risk.

    It is all choreographed so the eye will not be at risk which is another reason he is doing wresting.

    Any American older than 10 yrs old watching Wrestling needs to have a word with themselves. Brits watching it? I have no words for that.

    Fury for all his skills is an idiot.
