- Chris Jericho shared an unforgettable experience when he received a punch in the face from Mike Tyson
- The Canadian wrestler explained that the experience was terrifying and he was knocked out cold
- Tyson became the youngest heavyweight champion in boxing and won several titles in his career
Chris Jericho still remembered when he was once knocked out by the former undisputed heavyweight king Mike Tyson.
The former WWE Star now with AEW relayed his encounter with the Baddest man on the Planet who was once a knockout specialist in the heavyweight division.
Tyson became the youngest heavyweight champion in 1985 when he defeated Trevor Berbick via a knockout and had a few moments with the WWE in his sterling career.
The 53-year-old had an encounter with Stone Cold Steve Austin at Wrestlemania in 1998 and 12 years later Jericho came into the picture.
The Iron Mike delivered a brutal knockout to Jericho in the ring and the Canadian wrestler explained how terrifying the experience was.
“The moment before he swung at me, I told him, ‘Just wait until I put my hands up in the air, and swing,’” he told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
“Time stood still. I am the craziest man on the planet right now, because I’m waiting for Iron Mike Tyson to take a swing at me.
“I thought ‘I’m going to let him do it. Hopefully, he’s going to do it the proper way. But what if he’s mad? What if he misses?’”
Speaking of the effects of the punch which expertly delivered by the American fighter, Jericho said:
“He barely grazed me, but I felt a wind go by my face,” Jericho said. “That’s how fast he swung.
“He was so fast and so powerful. I couldn’t imagine how powerful he was 20 years earlier.”
After going face to face with Tyson and accepting a punch to the face, not much else can scare.
That is, at least, what Jericho has made of the situation following the night on RAW.
“Nothing could ever scare me ever again, after standing face-to-face with Mike Tyson, knowing he’s going to swing at me, and giving him 100 per cent trust he’s not going to knock me out and kill me.”
