WWE was in the City of Angels on Friday night marking their new FOX deal with their debut SmackDown show on FOX at the Staples Center in Downtown LA.
The night had the debut of former UFC champion Cain Velasquez confront Brock Lesnar and the return of “The Rock” Dwayne Johnson.
Also a surprise guest in attendance was controversial undefeated lineal heavyweight champion “The Gypsy King” Tyson Fury who was simply ringside as an observer and fan to enjoy the night.
Things took a sudden turn when Braun Strowman noticed Fury sitting ringside and went over with his fists up in a fighting stance taunting the 6’9″ heavyweight telling him “You don’t want these hands.”
Fury stood up and smiled unimpressed with the WWE strongman.
Later Strowman throws wrestler Dolph Ziggler at Fury making contact sending Fury falling over onto some audience members.
Fury had enough and stepped over the barrier ready to get into the ring only to have multiple security guards hold the irate traveler back.
