Well, that was something.

Fair enough.

Over the past number of weeks, footage of Mike Tyson training had the world speculating whether he would be returning for a boxing match.

He looked in incredible shape, especially considering he is 53 years of age, and he made a number of statements implying a return was imminent.

There was talk of a rematch with Evander Holyfield, and even some mention of a match with Anthony Joshua.

And he did make a return to the ring on Wednesday night, but it was a pro wrestling ring...

He made his way to the ring alongside MMA fighters Henry Cejudo, Vitor Belfort and Rashad Evans (because Tyson needs the back up, of course).

While Chris Jericho was ranting with his crew, Tyson and co made their way down and interrupted him.

There was a bit of a back and forth, and naturally it resulted in an all-out brawl between the two crews.
