Tyson Fury On Crown Jewel: ‘My Concerns Are To Enjoy This To The Max’

Tyson Fury was recently interviewed by Bleacher Report where he talked about his upcoming WWE Crown Jewel match against Braun Strowman. Fury speaks about his experiences at the WWE Performance Center and more. Triple H even chimes in on Fury’s progress.

Below are some highlights:

Tyson Fury Talks Running The Ropes:

“It’s just like a boxing ring, the same. How tough them ropes are. Running into them ropes is like running into barb wire for me. I came off; I was cut to pieces the next day. I was sore; I was battered, and you thought, you know what, I can’t wait to go back to the gym tomorrow and keep practicing.”

Tyson Fury On His WWE Performance Center Experience:

“Down at the Performance Center we do a lot of talking about the stuff, the moves, and stuff, and I’m like, ‘nah, let’s just do it. Let’s just practice it.’ Because in my game, the more you practice something, the better you become at it. And I’m all in for jumping in, flipping, getting smashed to the floor, whatever it takes to learn, I am all for it.”

Triple H On Fury’s Progression In The Ring:

“I was blown away. I sent Vince (McMahon) a video of him about 45 minutes after the first day he was at the Performance Center, and I said, ‘You’re not going to believe this, look at what he’s already doing.’

“He picks it up so quickly because he’s so laser-focused on it. He wants to put on this epic show. He has the desire for it to be great. He’s asking for more; he wants more; he’s jumping in with both feet. It’s almost like having to pull the reins back a little bit to get him to slow down and say, ‘maybe we don’t want to do that quite yet.’ It’s amazing to see that level of dedication.”

Tyson Fury Has No Concerns:

“My concerns are to enjoy this to the max—a once in a lifetime opportunity for me; [it’s] something I’ve always wanted to do. Injuries can occur walking down the street. I can fall off a curb, snap [my] ankle, get run over by a bus—that’s a part of life. We can’t live a life of, what-ifs, because we’d never go out the front door. I’m not a person who lives life like that. Whatever’s going to be, will be. I’m just looking forward to it.”
