AEW Star Mocks “Mark” Mike Tyson

Mike Tyson

One member of the AEW roster has made the dangerous decision to call the Baddest Man on the Planet a “mark”.

The brave remark came in response to Iron Mike’s recent comments about preferring WWE over AEW.

On a recent episode of his Hot Boxin’ podcast, the boxing legend stated that despite Tony Khan paying him more money, he would rather go to the Stamford-based company.

“Tony Khan and those guys? Yeah, these guys want to put me on the show and stuff before. But I don’t care if they got more money. If Vince [McMahon] put me on the show, I’d rather go there [WWE] even though they [AEW] pay more money.”

Taking to social media Jericho Appreciation Society member Daddy Magic Matt Menard responded to Tyson’s words by simply stating:

“What a mark!”

Mike Tyson Has Appeared For Both WWE and AEW

Tyson debuted for WWF during the Attitude Era in 1998. He appeared at the Royal Rumble before becoming involved in the lead-up to WrestleMania 14.

Tyson was integral in the main event feud between Stone Cold Steve Austin and Shawn Michaels. Austin took umbrage at Vince McMahon’s hype around Tyson which resulted in the famous pull-apart confrontation between the two.

As a guest enforcer, he delivered the three-count that ushered in Austin as the WWF Champion and turn the tide in the Monday Night Wars.

In May 2020, Tyson appeared for AEW. At Double or Nothing he was at ringside during the match between Cody Rhodes and Lance Archer to present the inaugural TNT Champion with the newly-introduced belt.

That same month, Tyson debuted on Dynamite alongside former UFC fighters Henry Cejudo, Rashad Evans, and Vitor Belfort in a segment with Chris Jericho and the Inner Circle.

In a third appearance for the promotion, the former World Heavyweight boxing champion helped Jericho out against the Pinnacle. During a scuffle, he laid out Shawn Spears with an array of signature punches.

In April 2021 he resumed his special enforcer duties for a match between Jericho and Dax Harwood on Dynamite.

More recently he provided commentary on the November 4th, 2022 episode of Rampage. At the time, Tyson described being involved as an “honour.”
