Insane scene in the squared circle Wednesday … Mike Tyson kicked off a benches-clearing brawl by shoving Chris Jericho — and UFC star Henry Cejudo was in the middle of it all!!
The fracas all went down toward the end of AEW Dynamite in Jacksonville, Fla. … when Jericho called out Iron Mike for betraying him during a WWE match back in 2010.
Chris demanded Tyson apologize … but Mike — whose in-ring entourage included Cejudo and other MMA stars Vitor Belfort and Rashad Evans — was having none of it.
Tyson straight up mocked Jericho … ripped off his shirt, and taunted the guy right to his face!!
Then, Mike shoved Chris … Chris pushed back — AND ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE!!!
We know … it’s scripted … BUT IT’S AWESOME!!!
Check out the footage, the melee featured damn near every wrestler in the building — with Cejudo, Evans and Belfort all mixing it up too!!
Eventually, Tyson and Jericho were restrained … with the help of Cejudo and the other MMA stars — but it all begs the question, is this the return to the ring Tyson’s been teasing?!
As we previously reported, Mike’s been training like a mad man and has said he wants to return to boxing for charity … and is even open to a rematch with Evander Holyfield.
But, Iron Mike’s now played a role in TWO AEW storylines the last few days — remember, he got on the mat Saturday night for a Pay-per-view event — so, could this be a legit future for the boxing legend as well???
As for Cejudo … he retired from the UFC this month — and a TON of MMA stars like Ronda Rousey and Ken Shamrock have made the leap to pro wrestling in their post-fight careers.
And, this has got us all wondering … is Triple C gunning to add a wrestling belt to his championships?!
