Triple H Very Impressed With Tyson Fury's Training For WWE Debut

WWE top executive Paul Levesque, better known to wrestling fans as Triple H, is very impressed with Tyson Fury's training for his WWE debut on October 31.

Fury will travel to Saudi Arabia to take part in pro wrestling match against WWE superstar Braun Strowman, as part of the WWE's Crown Jewel event.

Fury is training at the WWE's Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.

Fury has already been involved in several televised angles with Strowman to build up their match at Crown Jewel.

The televised segments and Fury's learning abilities in training have left a big impression on Triple H.

"He is a showman first and foremost, and it's really what he does," Triple H said to Bleacher Report. "But it's not an act; it's not a show. It's just who he is. He's charisma. He's the X-factor. He walks into a room, and you look at him. He is the guy that your eyes are attracted to from a standpoint of just who he is. So [in] that aspect of it, he's custom-built for us.

"I was blown away. I sent Vince (McMahon) a video of him about 45 minutes after the first day he was at the Performance Center, and I said, 'You're not going to believe this, look at what he's already doing.'

"He picks it up so quickly because he's so laser-focused on it. He wants to put on this epic show. He has the desire for it to be great. He's asking for more; he wants more; he's jumping in with both feet. It's almost like having to pull the reins back a little bit to get him to slow down and say, 'maybe we don't want to do that quite yet.' It's amazing to see that level of dedication."

There are many fans out there who are worried that Fury could get injured in the match - which in turn would postpone a planned rematch with WBC world champion Deontay Wilder in February 2020.

But Triple H is also worried - about Strowman getting injured if Fury doesn't properly pull his punches or doesn't properly perform a wrestling move.

"First and foremost, I worked with him on not caving in Braun's head," Triple H said. "Everybody's worried about, like, 'oh my God, Tyson, what if you get hurt?' I'm worried about Braun. Nobody's concerned if Braun gets hurt.

"Poor old Braun would be 370-pound Braun laying on his back looking up at the stars, not having any idea that Tyson even threw a punch yet, but he's knocked out," Triple H continued. "I saw Braun the other day. He's actually dropping some weight, believe it or not, in an effort to lighten up because he wants to be faster for this match with Tyson to be able to keep up with him. As seriously as Tyson is taking this, he is as well."

If Fury roided up he could be a scary, marketable dude in WWE.

Triple G vs Triple H let's see it. Loser loses a letter

Who cares, Fury is a fake and a cheat. PEDs taker and apparently removes padding from his gloves. Any dirty trick in the book to gain an advantage. That's the traveller mentality. No morals at all.

If you guys said wilder is ducking AJ for what ever reason, then you have to say fury is ducking wilder by going to a whole different sport.
