Having already crossed paths with Mike Tyson recently, All Elite Wrestling star Chris Jericho challenged boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Jericho tweeted Sunday that "I'll be waiting" after Mayweather has moved on from his fight with Logan Paul:

Chris Jericho @IAmJericho

Good luck tonight @FloydMayweather! After you whip @LoganPaul’s ass, I’ll be waiting for you.... pic.twitter.com/uB8vV85Bb6

Mayweather had a brief run in WWE in the spring of 2008, which culminated in his victory over The Big Show at WrestleMania XXIV. He returned as a guest host for Raw in 2009, which allowed him to reignite the feud.

Considering Mayweather is planning to earn between $50 million and $100 million for fighting Paul, Jericho might as well shoot his shot and look to cash in. It couldn't go any worse than his encounter with Mickey Rourke at WrestleMania 25.
