Chris Jericho: Mike Tyson Is Capable Of Doing A Wrestling Match

Chris Jericho and Mike Tyson closed Wednesday's Dynamite with a pull-apart brawl that featured The Inner Circle and cameos from former UFC Champions.

The confrontation between Jericho and Tyson has been building for a decade when Tyson punched Jericho on an episode of WWE Raw in 2010.

Speaking to Digital Spy, Jericho commented on the wild segment.

"It was amazing. We had such a chaotic night and I think it was a great way for us to re-introduce Mike and have some insanity on the show. It was totally wild and woolly. It just shows that now more than ever Iron Mike Tyson is someone who's very buzzworthy," he said.

Tyson has been training for some sort of comeback, whether it be boxing or wrestling. And should it be wrestling, Jericho knows he could pull something off with "The Baddest Man on the Planet."

"He's in great mental shape, physical shape and he's ready to make a comeback. Whether that means a boxing match or whether it means a wrestling match or whatever it could be. He wants to be in the spotlight again and AEW's the cool place to be. I mean, there's no doubt about it. I think anybody that watches wrestling knows that and that's why Mike came to play with us, so to speak. It was a great moment, it was a great night, and hopefully we can do more in the future. It's not up to him, that's up to me," Jericho said about a potential match. "Of course, he's capable. Wrestling is all shapes and sizes and there's a lot of different ways to do it. So if he's agreeable to doing something with us, then we work to his strengths and eliminate his weaknesses that's what wrestling's all about."

The segment between Jericho and Tyson already has over 950,000 views on YouTube, making it the most viewed video since AEW uploaded highlights from Jon Moxley vs. Jake Hager on April 15. That video sits at 1.4 million views.
