You might remember the big story heading into Wrestlemania in 1998 was Mike Tyson Vs Stone Cold Steve Austin, and now 20+ years later we have the 2019 version – Tyson Fury Vs Braun Strowman.

It all started last week on Smackdown when Tyson Fury jumped the guardrail to confront the big American:

Then this past week on RAW, they had a full-on brawl with the rest of the roster running out and trying to separate them like a bunch of chumps. Why would they care that Tyson Fury and Braun Strowman are beating the shit out of each other?
Anyway, it’s 99% certain that this is building to a Wrestlemania showdown between Braun Strowman and Tyson Fury, which is great news because Tyson Fury was pretty much born to be a wrestler. Imagine the promos the Gypsy King is gonna be cutting, the outfits he’s gonna be wearing, the press he’s going to be getting – smart move from WWE for sure.
OK, wrestling is nowhere near as good now as it was back in the 90s and early 00s, but Tyson Fury is a top entertainer so I think this one is going to be worth checking out in April 2020.
Not only that, it also looks like they’re setting up Brock Lesnar Vs Cain Velasquez for Wrestlemania. Does Vince McMahon have money coming out of his ears or what?
