Mike Tyson losing battle with his shirt on AEW is still hilarious

The days of All Elite Wrestling shows emanating from Daily’s Place in Jacksonville in front of no fans are well and truly behind us.

However, that hasn’t stopped fans from returning to the ‘Covid era’ episodes of the show to rewatch iconic moments.

From the Parking lot brawl between the Best Friends and Santa and Ortiz, to the debut of FTR, there is plenty to look back at.

One of the funniest moments of the show didn’t involve a regular member of the AEW roster, however, it involved a legendary boxing figure.

Mike Tyson had been brought into AEW to appear at ‘Double or Nothing,’ where he presented the inaugural TNT Champion Cody Rhodes with the new belt.

A few nights later, ‘Iron Mike’ appeared on Dynamite to reignite his rivalry with Chris Jericho.

Almost two years on, the footage of the Baddest Man on the Planet struggling to defeat his cotton AEW t-shirt is just as hilarious as the first time.

Tyson – who was flanked by former UFC stars Vitor Belfort and Henry Cejudo – clearly wanted to showcase his fantastic physique to ‘Le Champion.’

However, his plans of ripping off his shirt to reveal his shredded body didn’t go to plan.

Many fans thought that this interaction would lead to a wrestling match between the two, but it never came to be.

Instead, Tyson returned to the boxing ring to take on Roy Jones Jr in an exhibition match in November 2020.

The video of the altercation on AEW’s YouTube channel has attracted over eight million views, making it one of their best performing videos.

Since returning to the road, AEW have hit their stride and continues to attract large crowds.

Their upcoming joint show with New Japan Pro Wrestling titled ‘Forbidden Door’ sold out almost instantly.

Two months ago, at Double or Nothing 2022, they set a new record gate for a wrestling show outside of WWE.
