The promotion is now advertising the lineal heavyweight boxing champion for this week's episode of SmackDown in Manchester, England, though there's currently no word on what his role on the show will be.
Last week's Crown Jewel saw the towering boxer compete in his first wrestling match ever, defeating Braun Strowman via countout after knocking 'The Monster Among Men' off the apron with a punch. Strowman recovered soon after, downing 'The Gypsy King' with his Powerslam finisher, though Fury effectively no-sold the move, popped back to his feet, and mouthed off as Braun made his exit.
There's currently no word on whether or not Fury will ever wrestle again, though it's believed that he pocketed a cool seven-figure payday for his involvement in the Saudi Arabian show.
Fury vs. Strowman was met with widespread criticism. Tyson tried, and worked hard to prepare for the bout, but he's not a wrestler, and Braun couldn't carry him to a more respectable bout than the clunker that unfolded in Riyadh. Big Show vs. Floyd Mayweather this most certainly was not, but props to Fury for giving it a go.
