Heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury is no stranger to professional wrestling and WWE. Having briefly competed in the WWE, Fury has recently received a message from the legendary Undertaker ahead of his third fight against Deontay Wilder.
During Fury's first fight with Wilder back in 2018, the former pulled off an incredible comeback in typical Deadman fashion. After being knocked down, Tyson Fury sat up as the WWE legend and pulled off a miraculous recovery, as he survived the entire fight from there onwards.
The Undertaker asked Tyson to smash his opponent and then look over him and repeat the words, 'Rest In Peace!'
“You smash this guy and when you’re looking over him, just for me, look down at him and say, “‘Rest In Peace!' said The Undertaker."
In response to The Undertaker's message, Tyson Fury retweeted the video with the caption "I got you, Undertaker," as he got ready for Wilder this weekend in Las Vegas.
Tyson Fury also honored The Undertaker by wearing a hat similar to his and conveyed the following message for The Phenom:
“This one’s for The Undertaker. I’m here today in your hat, sir. I’m gonna smash him and I’m gonna say, ‘Rest In Peace.'”
