In a few hours, AEW‘s weekly episode of Dynamite will air. On AEW Dynamite, Chris Jericho will go one on one win with Colt Cabana for the first time in his career. This match also marks Chris Jericho‘s first singles match in AEW since COVID-19 disrupted the world.

Chris Jericho vs Colt Cabana on AEW Dynamite

With only a few hours left for the show, Y2J sent out a tweet explaining why his first time ever match against Colt Cabana is tainted. Here’s what you need to know:

The incident Chris Jericho is referring to here took place last week. Mike Tyson made an appearance on AEW Dynamite while Y2J was cutting a promo. Jericho and Tyson almost came to blows but were pulled apart by the AEW stars in the ring.

Chris Jericho doesn’t seem happy about Cabana coming the way and foiling his plans of knocking out Mike Tyson. Chris Jericho and Mike Tyson share a history that dates back ten years.

Chris Jericho is knocked out by Mike Tyson

Back in 2010, when Y2J was a part of WWE, he teamed up with Mike Tyson to take on the team of D-Generation X. During the match, Hornswoggle made his way to the ring, and while Jericho was distracted, Tyson quickly revealed that he was sporting a DX t-shirt.

Once Jericho saw what Tyson had done, Tyson knocked him out after an exchange of words between the two—thus rubbing Jericho the way. Jericho didn’t like the fact that he was knocked out in the centre of the ring. Thus sparking a feud ten years later on AEW.

Chris Jericho has silenced critics that said that his storyline with Tyson is a WWE angle.
