Tyson Fury wins WWE debut, defeat Braun Strowman on a count out

The British boxer took on the ‘Monster Among Men’ in his professional wrestling debut at the Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia.

Fury made his entrance in traditional Saudi dress and surrounded by fireworks and lasers as he stepped into a WWE ring for the first time. A match which lasted just over eight minutes came to an end when Fury rocked Strowman with a right-hand punch which sent him flying out of the ring.

He was unable to get to his feet on the outside of the ring before the referee’s count reached 10 and Fury therefore won by count-out.

The Fiend is the new Universal champion after beating Seth Rollins in a falls count anywhere match.

Rollins went through two tables and the Fiend fell into a production area but battled back to win with a Sister Abigail and become the champion in only his third match.

In the opening match of the night, Brock Lesnar retained the WWE championship by forcing Cain Velasquez to submit to a Kimura lock. After the bout, Rey Mysterio broke the hold by hitting Lesnar with a chair but Velasquez then received an F5 onto a chair as Lesnar put in a dominant performance.
