Boxing superstar Tyson Fury caught the attention of the crowd as he knocked out Austin Theory during the WWE Clash at the Castle pay-per-view hosted at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.
The former WBC world heavyweight champion mesmerised fans inside the stadium due to the crucial role he played in the main event match between Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre, punching Theory in the face as he tried to cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase in an attempt to claim the WWE and Universal Championships off Reigns, who was battling McIntyre in the ring.
This has, however, generated reactions from fans as the video clip of the incident continues to go viral. A fan was seen to have thanked Fury for his action after tweeting: “Thank you Fury.”
Another fan said: “My favourite part of this evening without question.”
Another fan also had this to say: “I really wish Tyson had let Theory cash in and then hit him. Would have been a good way to get the briefcase off him.”
Reacting to Fury’s act of obstructing his plan during the main event of WWE Clash at Castle, Austin was stunned in utter disbelief and took to his official Twitter account to insult the 34-year-old boxer saying “WTF” while tagging Fury in a video footage that emerged from the scene.
In a contest that Reigns became the eventual winner courtesy of Solo Sikoa’s helping hand, the British boxer – who rode to an overwhelming victory over Dillian Whyte earlier this year after a fugacious retirement – came to the aid of the demoralised McIntyre as he braced up the Scottish Superstar and lit up the stage as they both sang ‘American Pie’ to the delight of the 62,000 spectators in attendance.
After the match, the Gypsy King also got into the ring to congratulate Reigns for his victory as he retained his titles, continuing his reign at the top.
Meanwhile, this became Theory’s second failed attempt to cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase. The first was at SummerSlam during the match between Brock Lesnar and The Tribal Chief, where he got beaten up by The Beast at the verge of cashing in his contract.
