Mike Tyson appeared during an episode of AEW Dynamite and fans certainly loved the segment. There was a tease of a possible feud with Chris Jericho. There were also plans for him to compete against Jericho in a match at AEW All Out this year, but those were cancelled as he had to prepare for his match against Roy Jones Jr. The match will be an exhibition match where there will be no winners.
During Talk Is Jericho, Chris Jericho talked about Mike Tyson. He is unsure whether AEW will ever have any plans for Tyson at this point of time. Jericho revealed he originally pitched the idea of a boxing match against Tyson. He had taken punches before and was willing to take punches from Tyson as well.
“Earlier this year, when we had the little confrontation with Tyson, which may or may still happen. Who knows really, but they said, ‘Mike really wants to do something. What would you be up to?’ I said, ‘whatever. Let’s do a match.’ You want to do a boxing match? I’ll box Mike Tyson. How bad can I get beat up by Mike Tyson that’s worse than taking stiff shots from all these guys that I’ve been beaten up by over the years?”
“You can hit me and I’m fine. I’ll be fine, and I remember when Big Show had that with Floyd Mayweather. He told me Mayweather hit him and Mayweather broke his nose. And Show was like, ‘I’ve had my nose broken by less.’”
We wonder whether Tyson will be appearing in AEW again in the future.
