Tyson Fury to skip WWE events due to visa problems

Tyson Fury to skip WWE events due to visa problems

The WWE had planned for Fury to make a comeback at either the Royal Rumble or WrestleMania Hollywood. As a result, the WWE Universe was eager to welcome him back as a major boxing celebrity, and both WWE and boxing fans were ecstatic to see him in action again. However, according to recent reports, The Gypsy King is having trouble obtaining a visa to enter the US.

According to reports, Tyson Fury's immigration procedure is costing him millions of dollars, and his staff is working to find a solution. As per the US Sun reports, “Tyson and the legal team or getting this whole grey and tricky area resolved. But non-entry, quite simply put, means non-payment.”

The source added, “The WWE works with foreign athletes all the time in aiding their visa processing for appearances. The legal team are on the sidelines offering support in this matter, but ultimately getting approval is on Tyson’s head and how US immigration assesses his case.”

And let's not forget that his brother Tommy Fury's visa was earlier denied entry to travel from the United Kingdom to the United States due to the suspicion of ties to Irish criminal leader Daniel Kinahan. So, this might be another factor.

It's possible that we won't see him straight away, but given that WWE is currently travelling to different countries for its events, it's plausible that we will again see him in Saudi Arabia in 2023.
