Top AEW Star Chris Jericho was recently interviewed by ESPN on a number of topics, which includes his history with “Iron” Mike Tyson and more.
Below are the highlights from the interview:
On his history with “Iron” Mike Tyson and not rehearsing their segments:
“As far as I’m concerned, I’ve been working with Mike for 10 years. Probably seen each other half a dozen times and appeared on camera four or five of those. I know Mike. I think when the idea came for him to be involved with us at AEW, the natural pairing was with Chris Jericho. I know what to expect. A guy like him, he’s a firecracker, man. He’s a loose cannon as an entertainer, as a performer. You don’t give Mike Tyson a script. You don’t rehearse something with Mike Tyson. You just go out there. He’s gonna do whatever the f— he wants to do no matter what. And that’s cool. I have 30 years of being in the ring and I can guide that.”
