WWE Executive Vice President Paul "Triple H" Levesque recently spoke with The U.K. Metro and discussed boxing heavyweight champion Tyson Fury possibly returning to the sports entertainment world.
"I think the door’s open on our side, and the door’s open on his side – but there’s a lot of things in between now and then," Triple H said. "That fight [against Deontay Wilder] on February 22nd will be huge to him as to what his next steps are in all of this. So, we’re open to that stuff but it needs to be right for everybody."
Triple H noted that he learned while doing press with "The Gypsy King" that his initial childhood dream was to be a pro wrestler, not a boxer.
"He had a blast working with us," said Triple H. "It’s funny, one of the things that I learned with him doing the press for the other time he worked for us is that in his mind as a kid, he saw himself being a WWE superstar, not a boxer."
The Game then spoke more about his belief that Fury may appear here and there for WWE as time goes on, but made it clear that a run for the World Title is not likely.
"The entertainment side of it, that showmanship side of him is in front," Triple H said of Fury. "So I think he would love to do something more with us. He’d love to do a bigger thing. … I think he understands the entertainment value. This is not, for him, about, ‘I need to be the champion, or I need to be this or that.'"
