Tyson Fury could come back to a WWE ring at WrestleMania 36 only if he beats Deontay Wilder. Fury will take on Wilder in a highly-anticipated heavyweight boxing rematch on February 22 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas following their controversial draw in 2018.
If Wilder wins, Vince isn’t throwing $$ at a guy who just lost on PPV
According to WrestleVotes, however, WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon won’t be willing to invest on The Gypsy King at WrestleMania if he loses to the Bomber next month.
Therefore, the British superstar would only get to work with he wrestling giants at Mania if he emerges victorious from Nevada.
WrestleVotes tweeted: “Lots of speculation regarding Tyson Fury & WrestleMania. Source said his fight at MGM Grand vs. Deontay Wilder on February 22 is crucial to him appearing in Tampa.
“If Wilder wins, Vince isn’t throwing $$ at a guy who just lost on PPV. So to a degree, the ball is in Fury’s court.”

Fury linked up with WWE last Halloween at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia where he defeated Braun Strowman in an intense heavyweight showdown.
The Lineal Heavyweight Champion impressed in his professional wrestling debut as he took some heavy bumps and dished out some stunning moves.
The undefeated boxer picked up the win with a knockout punch and was then attacked by a sore Strowman who delivered his signature Running Powerslam.

The two heavyweights, however, shook hands soon after in Manchester and Fury even teased another WWE appearance after his fight with Wilder.
However, the 31-year-old insists that he is now fully focused on his upcoming fight in Las Vegas.
Fury said last year: “I’ve got a big fella called Deontay Wilder to see to, February 22nd, and then we see where we go from there.”
The popular boxer has been linked with a dream match against WWE Champion Brock Lesnar but reports suggest nothing has been discussed yet.
