WrestleMania XIV will always go down as one of the greatest WrestleManias of all time. The main event saw Stone Cold Steve Austin face off against Shawn Michaels for the WWF Championship with legendary boxer Mike Tyson as the special outside enforcer. During the closing moments of the match, Tyson turned on DX and counted the pinfall in favor of Steve Austin. However, there is one fun fact involving Tyson from that night.

During a recent episode of Monday Mailbag, former WWE referee Mike Chioda revealed that he spent one hour with Mike Tyson trying to teach him how to count like a referee.

“Believe me, I tried to teach him how to count. … He counted so fast, I was like ‘Oh sh*t.’ I must have spent like an hour with him, ‘Here, just 1-2-3.'”

This WrestleMania appearance was the last time he was involved in WWE. However, Tyson stepped back into the role of special enforcer for recent match between Chris Jericho and Dax Harwood. He was also on commentary when Orange Cassidy defended his All-Atlantic Championship against Katsuyori Shibata.
