Jericho called out the boxer while he was holding a pep rally on Wednesday for this group, The Inner Circle. Tyson, on Saturday, had presented the new TNT Championship to Cody at pay-per-view event Double or Nothing.
Jericho and The Inner Circle were attempting to cheer each other up after they lost the Stadium Stampede match to The Elite. Jericho and his crew were introduced by cheerleaders, one of which was professional wrestling personality Vickie Guerrero.
Member Sammy Guevara gifted his teammates participation trophies while Santana handed out gifts as well including a pair of Timberland boots for Jake Hager.
Jericho wants revenge against Tyson
Jericho said he wanted revenge for Tyson knocking him out years earlier. Tyson responded by calling him a sucker. Jericho demanded an apology while Tyson ripped off his shirt and flexed.
“What I really want is Mike Tyson’s head on a platter,” Jericho said before Tyson arrived onto the scene with his posse which included MMA fighters Henry Cejudo, Victor Belfort and Rashad Evans.
Tyson then shoved Jericho and Le Champion came back with another shove as all hell broke loose. Jericho and Tyson had to be restrained by The Inner Circle, Tyson’s posse and members of the AEW locker room.
#FTR debuts on Dynamite
Also on Dynamite, Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler of tag team #FTR made their AEW debut. The duo previously competed in WWE as The Revival.

The Butcher and The Blade attacked The Young Bucks after the match. #FTR drove into the arena in a truck and headed for the ring where they took out The Butcher and The Blade.
#FTR and The Young Bucks had a standoff in the ring and refused to shake The Young Bucks’ hands.
