Tyson Fury has teased a surprise appearance at Wrestlemania next year ahead of his WWE debut and joked his boxing career could be over after his scheduled fight with Braun Strowman.

The former world heavyweight champion has appeared on Raw and Smackdown ahead of the WWE Crown Jewel event on Thursday.

With regular training under the supervision of Triple H for his wrestling debut, Fury has hinted his appearance might not be a one-off - with the possibility he could return on the biggest stage next April: Wrestlemania 36.

"Who knows I might make a surprise appearance on WrestleMania,' Fury told the Express.

"it depends because I have got my own boxing stuff going on so it depends on when it falls and if I'm free or not.

"We will see where it goes from here. I can only take it one day and one event at a time so who knows."

Fury has a rematch with Deontay Wilder for the WBC world heavyweight title pencilled in for 2020, but he has joked his match with Strowman could leave him too damaged to return to boxing.

"It might be a career-ending fight with Braun Strowman, who knows," Fury joked.

"I might get a life-threatening injury or whatever so yeah, Deontay Wilder may be right about his prediction."
