WWE Exec 'Triple H' Could See Bright Future For Tyson Fury

World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) COO Paul "Triple H" Levesque would love to have heavyweight Tyson Fury take part in future wrestling events.

Fury made his in-ring debut for the WWE in

October, when he traveled to Saudi Arabia to defeat Braun Strowman by countout.

Fury has appeared on several episodes of Raw and Smackdown - the two flagship shows for WWE.

There is some talk that Fury could take part in the WWE's biggest event of the year, Wrestlemania, which takes place on April 5 in Tampa, Florida.

Before that happens, Fury will challenge WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder on February 22 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

If Fury wants to continue working with the WWE, the company is certainly on board.

"I think the door’s open on our side, and the door’s open on his side – but there’s a lot of things in between now and then. That fight on February 22nd will be huge to him as to what his next steps are in all of this. So, we’re open to that stuff but it needs to be right for everybody," Triple H told Metro.

"I think there’s thoughts out there of a lot of things with Tyson Fury. He had a blast working with us. It’s funny, one of the things that I learned with him doing the press for the other time he worked for us is that in his mind as a kid, he saw himself being a WWE superstar, not a boxer.

"The entertainment side of it, that showmanship side of him is in front. So I think he would love to do something more with us. He’d love to do a bigger thing. I think he understands the entertainment value. This is not, for him, about 'I need to be the champion, or I need to be this or that.'"
