A former professional boxer from the United States, Mike Tyson, is worth $15 million. Mike Tyson is a legend and a unique individual. He is history’s most prosperous ex-heavyweight fighter. The most vicious, aggressive, and committed boxer you will ever watch was Tyson.
The fact that Tyson won the heavyweight championship at the age of 20 still stands as a record. Tyson won the first 19 of his fights via knockout because he was so harsh in them. He also made history by becoming the first person to simultaneously hold the WBA, WBC, and IBF titles. In addition to his many honors, Tyson is a member of the World Boxing Hall of Fame.
Vince McMahon returned to WWE and on January 10, 2023, took up the role of Executive Chairman of the company. With that, he has started making changes within the company and several stories about him are coming to the spotlight. Also, stories from his past are also resurfacing. One such story that recently resurfaced is how Vince McMahon punished WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash for refusing to fight Mike Tyson.
Kevin Nash appeared in his Kliq This podcast and stated how Vince McMahon wanted him to fight with Mike Tyson for charity. However, the WWE Hall of Famer turned it down and things took an unexpected turn for him.
He said “He (Vince McMahon) had told me that I wasn’t going to lose the championship for years. No matter what, I wasn’t going to lose the championship for years. Then he starts telling me about this idea he had where I’m going to box Mike Tyson in Central Park, and it’s for charity.”
He then added that he told Vince that he would not fight Tyson for less than five million dollars. They went back and forth and Vince told him “By the way, you’re going to drop the belt to Bret at Survivor Series.”
Nash is a two-time WWF Tag Team Champion, a one-time WWF Champion, a one-time WWF Intercontinental Champion, and a two-time WWE Hall of Famer (Class of 2015, Class of 2020). Kevin Nash fought his last match in WWE in an Elimination Chamber match at SummerSlam for the World Heavyweight Championship against Shawn Michaels, Chris Jericho, Goldberg, Randy Orton, and Triple H.
Vince McMahon has his own way of doing things. He would often punish others to set an example and make them remember that he is the boss. However, later things got sorted between Vince McMahon and Kevin Nash.
