Could we see a match between Mike Tyson and Logan Paul? The two have both in the boxing ring and the wrestling ring as Logan Paul was in the corner of former WWE Intercontinental Champion, Sami Zayn during WWE WrestleMania 37 earlier this year. Whereas Tyson, who is already in the WWE Hall of Fame has made off and on appearances during AEW Dynamite. During a recent interview with TMZ Sports, ‘The Baddest Man on the Planet’ was asked about having an exhibition contest against Logan or Jake Paul. Mike Tyson’s AEW paycheck recently leaked.
However, a potential Tyson-Paul dream match – against either brother doesn’t appear to be in the cards as Tyson said to the gossip outlet: ““Nah, I like those guys, man! I like those guys, they’re good guys.”
The appeal of Mike Tyson facing Logan or Jake Paul would indeed be interesting as Jake Paul famously fought retired NBA guard, Nate Robinson during the undercard of Tyson’s fight with Roy Jones Jr and especially with Logan Paul’s fight with another iconic boxer, Floyd Mayweather Jr coming up later this year. In any regard, it appears that this particular contest might just have to stay as ‘fantasy booking’ – at least for now.

“I’m going to point out the fact that I took many shots from Mike Tyson and I’m still breathing,” Spears said. I like to think I lasted much longer than some of his former opponents, hands down. So did I stand toe-to-toe with Mike Tyson? Absolutely. Did I fight Mike Tyson? Absolutely. So Iron Mike, you’re welcome to come back to AEW anytime.
