Two behemoths collided on WWE’s Monday Night Raw on USA Network final night time: Boxing’s ubiquitous Gypsy King Tyson Fury and WWE’s personal larger-than-life monster, Braun Strowman.
Monday’s episode of Raw ended with a collision between the 2 athletes, which is rumored to be a prelude for a wrestling match between Fury and Strowman at an upcoming WWE occasion.
Fury, a former unified heavyweight boxing champion, appeared on WWE’s program to confront Strowman after the latter appeared to antagonize him throughout final Friday’s WWE SmackDown stay premiere on Fox.
Fury was within the entrance row throughout that program when Strowman goaded him and threw an opponent in his route. Fury tried to leap the barrier and blend it up with Strowman however he was held again by safety.
On Monday, WWE gave Fury a “live microphone” to handle Strowman, telling WWE backstage interviewer Charly Caruso that Strowman “tried to make a fool of me by throwing Dolph [Ziggler] into me. I want an apology.”
In a show-closing section, Fury confronted Strowman to get his apology however this shortly led to extra smack speak and a brawl that needed to be damaged up by a troop of WWE superstars.
Once separated, Strowman instructed Caruso he had no plans to apologize to Fury, accusing the boxer of “coming into my house, disrespecting me, my business in WWE.” The wrestler added: “I don’t play that crap, Tyson Fury.”
Strowman than ran again all the way down to ringside to restart the brawl, which continued lengthy after Raw ended on USA.
