Vince booking the long awaited fatal four way between Lesnar, Cain, Strowman, and Tyson for the WWE title at Saudi Arabia
That could be interesting. :think1

Fury seems a natural fit for a celebrity getting in a feud with a wrestler. He'd be one of the four or five physically biggest guys on the entire roster, has elite level tough guy credibility, he has his own pre-packaged wrestling-style gimmick (legit giant Irish gypsy maniac becomes boxing HW champion), and he can talk his ass off and entertain a crowd with unique promos. And Cain has a storyline sent from the heavens all ready to go and had some incredibly impressive moves in his debut a few weeks ago, but they're gonna have to keep the mic out of his hand. :lol:

:hat

Knowing how Vince works himself into a shoot with famous combat sport athletes being booked, he'd probably just have Lesnar pin Strowman, so Cain and Tyson looks strong without winning the strap. Strowman buried again

Star-studded celebrity lineup, including Alex Rodriguez, Michael Che and Colin Jost, to take part in WWE Draft
The stars will be out for the WWE Draft.
Fourteen-time MLB All-Star and FOX analyst Alex Rodriguez, "Saturday Night Live’s" Michael Che and Colin Jost of “Weekend Update” segments, "Mr. Robot's" Christian Slater, “NFL on FOX’s” Joe Buck and Pro Football Hall of Famer Troy Aikman, and “Mad Money” host Jim Cramer are among the celebrities set to take part.
The WWE Draft will determine the rosters of Raw and SmackDown. It begins tomorrow on Friday Night SmackDown at 8 ET/5 PT on FOX and continues Monday on Raw at 8/7 C on USA Network.
Additional personalities scheduled to appear include:
  • Kevin Burkhardt and Frank Thomas — FOX MLB analysts
  • Terry Bradshaw, Howie Long, Jimmy Johnson and Tony Gonzalez — FOX NFL Sunday
  • Ronde Barber, Charles Davis, Chris Spielman and Daryl Johnston — FOX NFL analysts
  • Charissa Thompson, Michael Vick and Peter Schrager — FOX NFL Kickoff
  • Rob Stone, Brady Quinn, Reggie Bush, Matt Leinart and Urban Meyer — Big Noon Kickoff
  • Joel Klatt — FOX College Football analyst
  • Dulé Hill of USA’s “Psych” and “Suits”
  • James Roday of “Psych”
  • Marcus Lemonis of “The Profit”
  • Margaret Josephs and Melissa Gorga of “Real Housewives of New Jersey”
  • Rodney Harrison and Chris Simms — Football Night in America
  • Rebecca Lowe, Robbie Mustoe and Kyle Martino — Premier League Live
Below is the full list of WWE Draft rules:
  • Over 70 Superstars, as well as tag teams, are eligible for selection in this year’s WWE Draft
  • SmackDown will draft 30 Superstars, and Raw will select another 41 Superstars
  • Since SmackDown is a two-hour show and Raw is a three-hour show, for every two picks SmackDown makes, Raw will receive three
  • Tag teams will count as one pick unless FOX or USA Network specifically wants to pick only one Superstar from the team
  • Any undrafted Superstars will immediately be declared free agents and able to sign with the brand of their choosing
Looks like the draft is a bigger deal than the debut episode
