One of the major attractions of WWE Crown Jewel is going to be the monstrous contest between Braun Strowman and Tyson Fury. After a long time, WWE is using a mainstream name in a contest with the hope of garnering some attention.
Otherwise, fans often show fewer interests when it comes to shows hosted in Saudi Arabia. But this time around, they will be curious to see how Fury fairs in a wrestling match.
Numerous backstage update is now available on this upcoming Crown Jewel match which will mark the debut of Tyson Fury inside the squared circle. The insider belief is that Fury is receiving significant money to make his WWE in-ring debut.
It’s certain that WWE gets big money for putting on shows in Saudi Arabia. So they won’t be backing down while putting stars like Fury on the match card even if it takes a lucrative paycheck.
They will be getting that paycheck back in an easy way as the match promises to be a money-maker. Plus, Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio noted an additional reason why this match is happening.
Mohammad bin Salman, the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, wanted Tyson Fury to compete at the show. So WWE took him under the contract. Here’s more on the situation via sescoops.com,
“As of this writing, it has yet to be confirmed whether WWE is receiving extra money to bring Fury in. This also hasn’t been the first time that WWE and Fury have had talks. While Meltzer was talking with Triple H at the press conference in Las Vegas on Friday, which is where it was noted that Fury approached WWE several years ago, but no deal was reached.”
However, with the Saudi prince wanting Tyson Fury to compete in a wrestling match, WWE took him under contract. The deal was made in recent times which is likely to be staying for a one-off match which is unlike the other star performer of Crown Jewel, Cain Velasquez who signed a multi-year deal with the WWE. Fury, on the other hand, will switch his focus to fighting Deontay Wilder in 2020, in a rematch from their December 2018 bout, after this match.
