• Chris Jericho Comments On Mike Tyson Wrestling A Match In AEW
Chris Jericho was interviewed by the New York Post recently, where he was asked about WWE Hall Of Famer Mike Tyson actually having his very first wrestling match in All Elite Wrestling.
Tyson is currently involved in the Inner Circle storyline with Jericho on AEW Dynamite.
Here’s what Y2J had to say about ‘The Baddest Man On The Planet’:
“I’d love to have a match with Mike, but the dynamic has switched. You don’t want Mike coming in as a bad guy. That’s hard to do, he’s Mike Tyson and Jericho is a good guy, so we can’t really work with each other.
So maybe we can do a tag team against somebody else. I’m not sure. I think Mike has a lot of trust in me as well. I don’t want to put words in his mouth.
The answer is always yes, and the answer is you can always make it work as long as you tell the right story.
We’d like to ensure that the storyline fits the match, not just, ‘Oh, Tyson’s available, let’s shoehorn a match in there.’”
