Henry Cejudo isn’t letting his recently-announced retirement from mixed martial arts keeping him out of the limelight, after the former UFC two-weight world champion joined Mike Tyson, Rashad Evans and Vitor Belfort in making an appearance at Wednesday’s All-Elite Wrestling live event.

Tyson, 53, has been flirting with a return to the ring recently with a host of names linked to taking part in an exhibition bout with the former world heavyweight champion to benefit charity but before that comes to pass, he got a taste of being back in the limelight at the event in which he worked an angle with wrestling legend Chris Jericho.

Check out the footage below:

Both Cejudo and Tyson have embraced professional wrestling throughout their careers. Cejudo’s ‘Triple C’ persona is credited at having its genesis in the world of sports entertainment, while Tyson has been involved in wrestling on several occasions in the past — most notably an angle he worked with ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin in the WWE two decades ago.

Tyson was featured during last weekend’s ‘All or Nothing’ pay-per-view event in which he was invited by close friend and AEW owner Tony Khan, who also owns the NFL team the Jacksonville Jaguars. Cejudo was also at the event but was not featured on the broadcast.
