A Tyson Fury vs. Braun Strowman brawl was the main event of Raw

New, comments

So Tyson Fury with an ‘open mic’ on Raw quickly devolved into the boxing champ reading a scripted promo to Charly Caruso backstage.

Fury’s night in the world of WWE began with him requesting an apology from Braun Strowman for their brief pull-apart on SmackDown. Caruso asked Fury a single question and that was that.

The six-foot-nine Fury would not reappear until the main event spot of Raw. With Jerry “The King” Lawler holding the mic, Fury was again asked one question and again demanded an apology from Strowman.

The Monster Among Men would come out and cut a promo of his own and said “he’d eat Fury for lunch”. Strowman mentioned Fury’s dramatic rise from a ten count against Deontay Wilder, which got The Gypsy King to ask exactly how many heavyweight titles has The Monster ever won?

Welp, that was enough for Fury and Strowman to try to rip each other’s head off.

As far as massive pull apart brawls, Fury versus Strowman was pretty decent. At times though it looked blatantly obvious that neither Fury nor Strowman knew just how physical they could get with one another.

Fury was put in a tough spot in the ring and on the mic, and the unbeaten heavyweight boxer did great in all areas WWE put him in. If Strowman is not challenging for WWE’s top two titles, there are much worse positions he could be in than opposite Fury.

Is this the end for the Tyson Fury versus Braun Strowman rivalry? Or is WWE looking to add a celebrity versus pro wrestler type match to Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia at the end of the month?
