Tyson Fury last appeared on WWE television at Clash at the Castle premium live event in Cardiff, Wales. During the show, Fury was involved in backstage segments with Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre. In the main event, he knocked out then Mr. Money in the Bank Austin Theory.
The U.S. Sun has reported that WWE had an idea to bring Tyson Fury for the upcoming Royal Rumble PLE and the company had wanted Fury to compete at WrestleMania 39.
The Gypsy King’s status for WrestleMania season is complicated due to his connection with Irish mob boss Daniel Kinahan who represent Fury since 2018. Last October, Tyson Fury’s younger brother, Tommy confirmed that he and his brother are banned from entering the United States. However, the two brothers have no connection to criminalities. The bans are believed to be in connection to links with Kinahan who was hit with sanctions in April.
“Tyson is well loved at the WWE and him popping up in any match and a run to Wrestlemania would generate huge headlines and fan interest. However his immigration status is proving tricky to deal with. Tyson and the legal team or getting this whole grey and tricky area resolved. But non-entry, quite simply put, means non-payment. And people may not believe this but turning up for a match or being part of the shows, not even fighting, earns him several million dollars. So this issue with his working visa in the States is costing him a large amount of cash. The WWE works with foreign athletes all the time in aiding their visa processing for appearances. The legal team are on the sidelines offering support in this matter, but ultimately getting approval is on Tyson’s head and how US immigration assesses his case.”
