Tyson Fury Pays Homage To The Undertaker With Classic Sit-Up Move

Tyson Fury Pays Homage To The Undertaker With Classic Sit-Up Move

Tyson Fury gave wrestling fans what they wanted this evening when he paid homage to a WWE legend during his victorious fight against Braun Strowman in Saudi Arabia this evening.

The two went up against each other for a one-off fight as part of WWE Crown Jewel. But mid-way through their tussle, he took a moment to treat viewers to a bit of a throwback, with a tribute to The Undertaker - Mark Calaway's iconic wrestling alter-ego.

Fury recreated the Undertaker's legendary 'sit-up' move, which also acted as a little nod to the comparisons that were made during his fight with Deontay Wilder last year.

One fan tweeted: "Tyson Fury sitting up like the Undertaker is all we needed."

Another wrote: "Tyson Fury just sat up like The Undertaker... idc what anyone says, this man earned his millions today from that ALONE!!!"

The British former heavyweight boxing champion went against Strowman for a one-off fight as part of WWE's Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia this evening.

He had kicked things off by making a dramatic entrance wearing a thobe and keffiyeh headdress - a traditional ensemble in Saudi Arabia - while fireworks, lasers and pyrotechnics added to the theatrics as the Isley Brothers' 'It's Your Thing' played.

The former unified heavyweight champ then went on to trade blows with his WWE superstar opponent, both treating fans to a strong display - at one point, Fury even performing a drop kick on Strowman outside of the ring.

Eventually, Fury picked up a victory via count out when he nailed Strowman with a powerful right hand, with the WWE superstar unable to beat the referee's ten count.

Fury and Strowman's beef had all begun 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 was the next step for fans, who have been excited to see Fury swap shorts for spandex.

And it seems many people were left feeling impressed with Fury's wrestling debut, with one tweeting mid-way through the fight: "Tyson Fury is doing a damn good job for his first ever wrestling match. You can tell he took his training seriously."

Another said: "Pretty rad to see Tyson Fury is trying to put on an actual match at Crown Jewel. Not just punching the whole time with lots of bells and whistles."

Someone else admitted it was 'more entertaining' than they thought it would be, while many others said Fury was a 'natural' and had been 'great'.
