Mike Tyson losing the battle with his shirt on AEW is still hilarious
The days of All Elite Wrestling the shows emanating from Daily’s Place in Jacksonville to no fans are well and truly behind us.
However, that hasn’t stopped fans from returning to “Covid-era” episodes of the show to re-watch iconic moments.
From the fight in the parking lot between Best Friends and Santa and Ortiz, to the early days of FTR, there’s a lot to look back on.
One of the funniest moments on the show didn’t involve a regular AEW roster member, however, it did involve a legendary boxing figure.
mike tyson had been brought to AEW to appear at “Double or Nothing”, where he introduced the first TNT champion Cody Rhodes with the new belt.
A few nights later, ‘Iron Mike’ appeared on Dynamite to reignite his rivalry with Chris Jericho.
Almost two years later, the footage of the baddest man on the planet struggling to defeat his AEW cotton t-shirt is just as hilarious as the first time around.
Tyson – who was flanked by alumni cfu stars Vitor Belfort and Henry Cejudo – clearly wanted to show his fantastic physique to “The Champion”.
However, his plans to rip off his shirt to reveal his shredded body did not go as planned.
Many fans believed that this interaction would lead to a catch match between the two, but that never happened.
Instead, Tyson returned to the boxing ring to confront Roy Jones Jr. in an exhibition match in November 2020.
The video of the altercation on AEW’s YouTube channel has garnered over eight million views, making it one of their highest-performing videos.
Since returning to the road, AEW has taken off and continues to draw large crowds.
Their next joint show with New Japan Pro Wrestling titled “Forbidden Door” sold out almost instantly.
Two months ago at Double or Nothing 2022 they set a new record for a wrestling show outside of WWE.
