Two different sources have told me the plan is for Tyson Fury to appear in Saudi Arabia, not WM36. ESPN and FOX has worked together on this and the goal is to promote Fury v Wilder.
Deal was agreed earlier this week, one source said Monday.

So far, it’s confirmed the hallmark event will play host to a fight between Team Hogan, including Seth Rollins and Rusev, squaring off versus Team Flair, consisting of Randy Orton and King Corbin. It’s pipped to be an epic showdown. Chances are that Brock Lesnar and Cain Velasquez will appear too.
Tyson Fury coming to WWE RAW on Monday
Hot on the heels of Fury’s feud with Braun Strowman at the WWE SmackDown FOX premiere, the 31-year-old announced he’s coming to Monday’s WWE RAW for an “open mic.” He says:
“Last night, we attended WWE SmackDown for my son’s 8th birthday: me, as a lifelong WWE fan, and my son, it’s his favourite thing to do. We went there for his birthday. I was insulted in front of my whole family by Braun Strowman. It got a little bit heated and we saw what happened, so I’ve been invited to an open mic session on Monday Night Raw. I accept. I’ll be there, but if Braun Strowman doesn’t behave himself, he’ll get some of these hands. You big dosser!”Tyson Fury
