The Undertaker has sent a message to Tyson Fury ahead of his trilogy fight against Deontay Wilder tonight in Las Vegas.
The last time Fury fought Wilder was also in the entertainment capital of the world, when Wilder’s team threw in the towel during round seven to prevent any further punishment.
However, Wilder has once again talked a strong game going in to this fight, even if that hasn’t stopped the bookmakers having Fury as the favourite.
Whilst the weigh-ins were happening, Fury could be seen sporting a very Undertaker-esque hat, and he soon received a personal message from The Dead Man ahead of the fight.
True to fashion with Wilder, he was quick to send a message back to The Phenom, playing off what ‘Taker had said during the video – declaring that he will tell Wilder to rest in peace after he’s “smashed him”.

Tyson Fury is no stranger to the wrestling scene. He competed in his first match against Braun Strowman at WWE Crown Jewel in 2019, with the boxer winning the contest via countout. There has been plenty of talk since about him returning to the squared circle, and in particular he has plenty to say online with Drew McIntyre, who has responded in kind.
There has been plenty of chatter that Fury and McIntyre could take place at a major WWE event, and with rumours that SummerSlam next year may take place in the United Kingdom it seems like that would be an ideal location for a contest. With Fury also stating that he may take a two-year break from boxing following four huge fights he wants to have, the timeline could potentially fit as well.
The Undertaker’s last match was his cinematic ‘Boneyard Match’ against AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36. The last in-ring match in his three-decade career was at Crown Jewel a month before that, where he beat The Phenomenal One in a gauntlet match.
