‘Iron’ Mike Tyson laid out Cash Wheeler with a massive punch during a huge match between Chris Jericho and Dax Harwood on AEW Dynamite.

The legendary boxer was serving as special enforcer for the bout as he appeared at ringside and didn’t take any nonsense, repeatedly stopping the wrestlers from using weapons.

At one point, he pulled Cash off the ring apron and knocked him out with a strike to the face with his famous right fist.

In the end, Jericho defeated his rival as the Inner Circle dealt a blow to the Pinnacle, and it was later revealed that Tyson has now officially joined the former group.

It was another headline-making appearance for the Baddest Man on the Planet in AEW, just one week after he helped the faction and aligned himself with Chris Jericho – who he had issues with during his previous All Elite Wrestling appearance – after taking out their rivals.

Last week, MJF’s group were taking it to the Inner Circle as the two groups once again came to blows, before Tyson stormed the ring, took his shirt off and battered poor Shawn Spears.

After rocking him with right and left hands, Tyson was joined by the rest of Jericho’s own band of brothers, including Sammy Guevara, Jake Hagar, Santana and Ortiz.

Jericho – who appeared on WWE Network series the Broken Skull Sessions over the weekend being interviewed by ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin – could be seen thanking ‘Iron’ Mike for his help.

It remains to be seen if Tyson will be around long term now, or even short term for more than just these two appearances, but time will tell.

Meanwhile, CM Punk has weighed in on Jericho’s network interview and insisted the appearance shows WWE boss Vince McMahon isn’t scared of AEW.

Asked about the move, CM Punk told TMZ: ‘Honestly, my major reaction and opinion on it is I think that it shows Vince McMahon isn’t afraid of AEW at all because if he was, he wouldn’t allow that to happen.’

Punk – who has his own issues with the company, despite fans clamouring for a comeback – had predicted a ‘feel-good interview’ that doesn’t ignore Jericho’s current run in AEW, but also one that won’t delve into ‘the tough questions’.

He explained: ‘It feels like it’s gonna be softball questions. I don’t know if they’re going to ask Jericho all the tough questions – and nor do I think that they possibly should…

‘It will probably just be like a feel-good interview. They’ll talk about Jericho’s past at WWE, I’m sure they’ll mention AEW but they won’t get into the hard questions that I think a lot of people would be interested in.’

Punk also noted how AEW could benefit from the interview with the company getting publicity on the WWE Network – and Peacock in the US.

He added: ‘Anytime anybody’s talking about you, it’s good. There will be people who don’t know AEW exists who will watch it and say “Oh wow cool, I didn’t know that, I just thought Jericho was retired.” ‘
