Mike Tyson and Henry Cejudo mix it up in AEW pro wrestling brawl with Chris Jericho
While most of the world expected Mike Tyson’s comeback in combat sports to happen in boxing or even bare-knuckle fighting, it appears that his first stop is in a different kind of ring — and he apparently has some backup.
Tyson was involved in a storyline segment at the end of All Elite Wrestling’s Dynamite show on Wednesday, which aired on TNT. He faced off with wrestling legend Chris Jericho on the live show in Jacksonville, Florida, in a continuation of a story that started 10 years ago in WWE.
Cejudo, 33, successfully defended the UFC bantamweight title against Dominick Cruz on May 9 in Jacksonville and announced his retirement from MMA in his postfight interview. He has been coy about his future beyond fighting, and many have speculated that he’s angling to get a bigger contract from the UFC.
