Mike Tyson’s legacy in the world of boxing is undeniable. Rising from a troubled childhood, Tyson made his mark on the sport with his unmatched power and ferocity in the ring. With an impressive record of 50 wins, including 44 knockouts, Tyson became the youngest heavyweight champion in history at the age of 20. However, his career was not without its controversies, including his infamous biting incident during a fight with Evander Holyfield.
Tyson’s love for professional wrestling is well-documented. He has made appearances for WWE and even AEW over the past several years. While Tyson has gotten into physical altercations during these shows, he hasn’t stepped inside the ring for an official match.
During a recent interview with The Undertaker on his Hotboxin YouTube channel, Tyson mentioned which of the two promotions he would prefer to work for if he ever got the call.
“These guys wanted to put me on the show and stuff before. But I don’t care if they got more money. If Vince puts me on the show, I’d rather go there even though they (AEW) pay more money.”
The Undertaker chimed in, saying that WWE will do it right. After all, The Phenom has a lot of experience to speak from.
“I don’t blame you there. It’s gonna get much more play. WWE is gonna do it right.”
Mike Tyson last appeared on AEW Rampage in November as a commentator. Prior to that, he appeared a couple of times on Dynamite and even got into a huge brawl with Chris Jericho’s Inner Circle. Stay tuned to Ringside News as we bring you similar stories.
