It turns out that boxing champion Tyson Fury was scheduled to appear at WrestleMania 36 this past weekend.

However, his appearance was nixed due to the coronavirus pandemic just like many aspects of the actual show.

Fury shared the news when he spoke with Alex McCarthy of talkSPORT earlier this week. McCarthy tweeted out an excerpt that noted Fury was supposed to be at WrestleMania, but the virus prevented it from happening.

"I was supposed to be at WrestleMania 36, but obviously with the coronavirus I couldn't be there," Fury stated.

Going back to last November, there had been rumors of him possibly wrestling at the 2020 Royal Rumble or WrestleMania 36. At the time, his return to in-ring action depended on his fight with Deontay Wilder.

Fury also told the media outlet that he would love to face WWE Champion Drew McIntyre after this third fight with Wilder, which is slated to take place in July but could be delayed further.

This comes after McIntyre had called out Fury for a title match. For more on that, click here.
