WWE star The Undertaker has responded to Tyson Fury’s epic tribute to him and vowed to cheer on the boxer from ringside shortly.
The Deadman, 55, called time on his legendary three-decade long career in the squared-circle this summer after beating AJ Styles at WrestleMania.
Taker, real name Mark Calaway, is returning at Survivor Series on Sunday for his ‘Final Farewell’ – exactly 30 years since his debut.
Heavyweight boxing champ Fury is no stranger to the wrestling world after his victory in WWE over Braun Strowman at last year’s Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia.
He has been linked with another comeback into the business to face fellow Brit and current WWE Title holder Drew McIntyre.
Despite verbal jousting between the pair, Fury has been a lot more complimentary towards The Phenom.
And he even dressed up in similar attire to Undertaker and wore a replica WWE belt to record a message for him on Instagram and Twitter.
He captioned the clip with: “Showing my utmost respect to The @undertaker on his 30th Anniversary in the @WWE . Sporting this Phenom inspired, custom @Claudio_Lugli outfit and Championship title I will be tuning in to watch your Final Farewell this Sunday at Survivor Series. Thank You Taker #Undertaker30.”

Despite the thousands of tributes being paid to him from celebrities and fans across the world, Taker spotted Fury’s and replied with a message of his own to the WBC heavyweight title holder.
He tweeted: “Massive respect…thanks Champ. Keep doing what you’re doing and stay healthy. Watched your inspiring journey for a long time and cant wait to see you fight in person in the future!”
Undertaker has taken part in interviews across the planet this week, including a memorable appearance on Good Morning Britain, ahead of his ‘Final Farewell’.
And to further promote it he is going to be on social media channel Cameo.
He will be doing 30 personalised video messages from Survivor Series this Sunday, which fans will have to pay £750 each for.
