There have been a lot of rumors regarding Mike Tyson of late.

Initially, some rumblings put the 53-year-old back in the ring against Evander Holyfield. Then recently there was talk of engaging in bare-knuckle brawls with Tito Ortiz or Wanderlei Silva.

And while there has been little certainty when it comes to Tyson's plans, David Arquette certainly made it seem like something is going to involving the former champ is going to happen.

The subject came on OMF when Arquette -- the longtime actor who is now back in the world of wrestling -- talked about his dealing with famous athletes.

"Mike Tyson, I love that guy. I love him so much. He is amazing. We have been talking about doing something together," Arquette told Glenn Ordway, Christian Fauria and Lou Merloni. "I’m so excited about his return."

That obviously piqued the interest of the show's co-host, pressing Arquette for particulars.

"Oh yeah. That’s a real thing," he added. "Did they announce who it was? ... I know who it is."


"I’m sworn to secrecy," Arquette said with a chuckle. "And I know when it’s going to be.

It’s called excitement. It’s called hype. We’re building it all up. Mike Tyson is one of the greatest champions we have and he has one more fight in him. That’s what my wrestling return was all about so I’m behind him 100 percent."

Tyson did re-enter the world of competition (sort of) Wednesday night, appearing on AEW to reignite a 10-year-old feud with former WWE wrestler Chris Jericho.
