Chris Jericho said it’s the perfect time for Mike Tyson to make his wrestling debut. He said Tyson is currently in great shape and the “aura” of Tyson is back.
Chris Jericho recently opened up about his in-ring rivalry with Mike Tyson and revealed whether the legendary boxer could wrestle for the first time at a pro-wrestling stage.
While Tyson has made appearances in both WWE and AEW, he has never wrestled. According to reports, WWE once came really close to signing Mike Tyson for a WrestleMania match against Triple H, but Mike Tyson declined the offer as WWE was not offering him enough money.
While talking to WrestleZone, Chris Jericho said that it’s the perfect time for Mike Tyson to make his wrestling debut. He said Mike Tyson is currently in great shape and the “aura and the mystique” of Mike Tyson is back and enthralling audiences. “He looks great, you’ve seen his sparring videos, he moves fast, he’s ‘Iron’ Mike Tyson again,” said Chris Jericho.
Chris Jericho claimed that one of the worst things you could do is put Mike Tyson in an actual boxing match. He revealed that AEW will be a perfect stage for Tyson and added that he could be a perfect first opponent for the boxing legend. “You can see that I’m doing some of the best work in my career after doing this for 30 years. So it’s a perfect match-up,” said Jericho.
