Chris Jericho Reveals He Was Supposed To Face Mike Tyson At AEW All Out
The two had a pull-apart in May...
When Chris Jericho and his Inner Circle allies had a clash with Mike Tyson and his entourage on the post-Double or Nothing episode of AEW Dynamite, most assumed it was leading somewhere.
And it was, but it just didn't come to pass the way AEW and Jericho were hoping.
"The Demo God" revealed on his latest Saturday Night Special what many figured was in the cards, that he and the boxing great were headed for a one-on-one showdown, which would've taken place at September's All Out.
"Originally, I was supposed to work with Tyson at the September pay-per-view, All Out 2, and we just couldn't get it done in time," Jericho revealed. "So, the second match I had with Orange was originally going to be the Mimosa Mayhem but we moved it to the rubber match position.”
Tyson's first appeared in AEW in 2020 to present the TNT championship to the winner of the Cody Rhodes/Lance Archer tournament final at Double or Nothing. His only other appearance with AEW came in the aforementioned pull-apart with Jericho and the Inner Circle, four nights later.
