Triple H Discusses Opportunity to Work With Tyson Fury, More


Yahoo! Sports recently spoke to Triple H about Tyson Fury making his WWE in-ring debut when he takes on Braun Strowman at the Crown Jewel pay-per-view event. Here are the highlights: 

How the opportunity came up for Fury: 

“As Tyson was making his comeback and coming up, he was really making waves and I said this is something interesting and we should keep our eye on this. We had an opportunity come up where we thought maybe we could do something with him. The timing was just right, not only was he interested, but he said right now would be a great time to do something and it kind of happened very quickly from there.”

Fury’s athleticism and charisma: 

“When recruiting straight athletes to become WWE superstars, the first thing I look for is charisma. The athleticism, we can teach. When you find an elite-level athlete, like a Tyson Fury, that brings that level of charisma naturally [it’s great]. The truth is, in all of this, Tyson Fury is custom-made for all of this. He is the ultimate entertainer and showman. For WWE, it was a no-brainer for us when he said he had interest in it. We said, ‘Let’s go.’”
