Mike Tyson's massive AEW knockout punch will never be topped

Mike Tyson AEW punch

Mike Tyson has treated us to many unforgettable moments over the years.

From becoming the youngest ever heavyweight champion at 20-years-old to his notorious fight with Evander Holyfield, Tyson has never been too far from the headlines.

His guest appearance on All Elite Wrestling last year was no different, when, at 52-years-old, he showed he still packs a punch, landing a ferocious right hook on Cash Wheeler.

The blow floored Wheeler, leaving him motionless on the ground. The mark on his head suggested there was nothing pulled about the hit.

Coming off the back of his exhibition bout with Roy Jones Jr. just months before, Wheeler had chosen the wrong moment to irk an in-shape Tyson.

Iron Mike had come on the show as a special guest enforcer, stating he would be “firm, but fair”. He certainly did his part to lay down the law.

The reality is that Tyson is blockbuster. On a night when Chris Jericho took out Dax Harwood, all eyes were on the boxing legend.

Following the match, he officially joined The Inner Circle, Jericho’s stable of wrestlers.

The union may have come as a surprise to fans, who had watched the pair feud since Tyson turned on Jericho to join Triple H in 2010.

At the time, Jericho did not rule out the possibility of a showdown between Tyson and himself.

Speaking to the Digital Spy, he said, “It’s not to Say that Mike and I won’t fight each other again in the future. We’ve been feuding with each other on-and-off since 2010, so it’s been a decade as it stands.”

“But for right now this was the best way to tell the story and I think above and beyond we put together a really captivating two-part mini angle that started last week and ends this week for as far as we know, and also leaves an open-ended door for him to come back when the time is right.”

“He loves AEW, he respects wrestling and we feel the same way, so I have no doubt in my mind that Mike will be back in AEW whenever he feels like he wants to come back.”
