WWE legend Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson claims ‘good buddy’ Tyson Fury is ‘possibly the greatest of all time’

Johnson, 49, said: “A good buddy of mine, I just saw his post, a good buddy of mine, who many of you know, if not all of you, Tyson Fury, the heavyweight champion of the world.

“He will go down as one of the greatest of all time, possibly the greatest of all time, he’s in that conversation.

“He was paraphrasing someone who we both love and admire, Muhammad Ali.

“And he talked about the pain that you go through is temporary but the greatness of the other side is forever.

“And I love that quote because it’s the thing that we’ve always got to constantly remember.

“If we can just get past that pain threshold training, whatever it is, on the other side of that, man it’s the good s***.

“It’s the greatness, so get past that threshold and get to your greatness.”

Fury, 33, linked up with the wrestling great in 2019 when in America on holiday with his family.

The Gypsy King would then go on to debut in the WWE, beating Braun Strowman, 38, at the ‘Crown Jewel’ pay-per-view event.

Fury has flirted with a wrestling return recently, feuding online with former WWE champion, Scotland’s Drew McIntyre, 36.

But for now, he is focussed on defending the WBC belt he won against Deontay Wilder, 36, in 2020 and defended against the American last October.

Fury is in talks to face mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte, 33, with a deal to fight Oleksandr Usyk, 34, for all the belts all-but dead.
