Tyson Fury Makes WWE Entrance Wearing Thobe And Headdress

For his WWE wrestling debut, Tyson Fury has made a dramatic entrance in Saudi Arabia wearing a traditional thobe and keffiyeh headdress.

After he arrived in style, one viewer tweeted: "No he didn't lmao #WWECrownJewel."

They added: "Tyson Fury pandering hard to that crowd."


Someone else commented: "Braun's face watching Tyson Fury's entrance is all of us. Utter confusion."

Mind you, we probably shouldn't be particularly surprised by the outfit he donned for that entrance, as it's a trope he often uses for boxing matches to rev up the crowd.

For his fight in Las Vegas back in September, Fury donned Mexican colours to celebrate the country's independence weekend, even sporting a sombrero and poncho as he enterted the ring.

Oh, and there was a mariachi band too, just in case you didn't quite grasp the theme.


He also channelled his inner Apollo Creed a few months earlier, when he made an all-American entrance before going against German boxer Tom Schwarz.

The glitzy get-up reminded many fans of fighter Apollo Creed from the Rocky franchise, from the stars-and-stripes shorts through to the sparkly top hat.


The British former heavyweight boxing champion is in Saudi Arabia this evening to go against Braun Strowman for a one-off fight - something the self-titled 'Gypsy King' is reportedly getting paid a whopping £12 million for.

The beef all began earlier this month when Fury was in the crowd at WWE's TV show, Friday Night Smackdown. He got into an altercation with Strowman, and three days later the two had to be held apart by other wrestlers when they rocked up to Monday Night Raw.

Tonight's fight is the next step for fans, who have been excited to see Fury swap shorts for spandex.
