The media have been invited to attend a ‘major WWE announcement’ at the T-Mobile Arena ahead of SmackDown where the announcement is expected.

The two matches will reportedly happen at WWE’s Crown Jewel pay-per-view event in Saudi Arabia on October 31.

There are question marks over how physical Fury will get with Strowman considering the Gypsy King needed 47 stitches to an eye injury after his win over Otto Wallin last month.

And any injuries sustained while fighting in WWE could have repercussions on a potential rematch with Deontay Wilder next year.

It all boiled over on Raw when Fury told Strowman he would knock him out, before the pair brawled and had to be separated by security and WWE superstars.

Meanwhile, there is history between Lesnar and Velasquez, who made his WWE debut appearance on SmackDown last week.

Velasquez knocked out Lesnar in round one to win the UFC Heavyweight Championship in 2010.

The Mexican sparred with The Beast on SmackDown after the latter had brutally assaulted Rey Mysterio and son Dominic on Raw.

While there is always controversy with WWE holding events in Saudi Arabia, those two matches are set to have everyone in the wrestling world watching.
