Mike Tyson led a group of UFC fighters and other roughnecks into a confrontation with All-Elite Wrestling’s Chis Jericho and several other pro wrestlers on Wednesday night’s edition of AEW’s “Dynamite”.
The 53-year-old former heavyweight boxing champion led a stellar group of maulers into the confrontation with Jericho’s Inner Circle group that included former UFC middleweight champion Vitor Bellfort, former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans and recently retired UFC “champ champ” Henry Cejudo.
How Tyson’s Wild AEW Brawl with Jericho Happened
In the storyline, Tyson and Jericho were talking smack to each other and arguing over how Tyson had punched Jericho in the face 10 years ago when both were working with rival pro wrestling organization WWE.
Back then, Tyson was set to guest host on WWE’s “RAW”, and the boxing champ was supposedly going to team up with Jericho against Triple H and Shawn Michaels in a tag-team match.
But Tyson would later reveal his true affiliation was with Triple H and Shawn Michaels. Tyson showed Jericho he was wearing a DX shirt before punching his stunned tag-team partner in the face and knocking him out cold.
On Wednesday’s show, Jericho demanded an apology for what Tyson had done to him 10 years ago.
Instead, Tyson shoved the wrestler across the ring.
Jericho shoved Tyson back, and a wild brawl ensued that brought more people into the ring from backstage.
The two men were eventually separated by the hoard, and Tyson later cut a short promo video about the incident and what he had planned for Jericho next.

Tyson’s Pro Wrestling Comeback Precedes Same in Boxing
Tyson has been busy as of late.
He previously appeared at AEW “Double or Nothing” where he confronted Jake “The Snake” Roberts and presented the AEW TNT championship belt to Cody Rhodes after that wrestler’s victory over Lance Archer.
However, it now appears the two-time heavyweight boxing champion might be getting a lot more involved with AEW wrestling than most people originally expected.
So add Tyson’s comeback to the pro wrestling world to his growing list of comeback journeys.
The fighter has also revealed over recent weeks that he’ll be on his way back into a boxing ring again soon, too.
All that’s left now is finding out who Tyson intends to box.
More candidates seem to emerge every single day.
Tyson said he plans to box for charity, though “The Baddest Man on the Planet” also claimed to have been reawakened by the “Gods of War” recently, so anything is possible at this point.
