The former Undisputed Heavyweight Champion of the World Mike Tyson is set to return to AEW Dynamite.
Tyson previously appeared in AEW just under a year ago in May 2020. The former boxing star was present at AEW Double Or Nothing, before debuting on AEW Dynamite in a brawl with Chris Jericho and the Inner Circle.
Tyson’s upcoming appearance will see him enter an AEW ring in front of a live crowd for the very first time.
AEW President Tony Khan talked up the importance of a live crowd, adding that he was excited for the audience to get to see Tyson in person.
“There’s nothing better than an impassioned, live wrestling crowd. Since August 2020, we’ve provided safe, outdoor shows at Daily’s Place, with zero reported transmissions amongst our fans, and we’re so appreciative of the amazing fans who have been joining us week after week,”
It’s been incredible for our wrestlers, and for those watching at home, to hear the live reactions. This includes historic events like Kenny Omega winning the AEW World Title, Sting’s surprise arrival, Shaq teaming with Jade Cargill against Cody Rhodes and Red Velvet, The Young Bucks and Darby Allin’s respective championship wins at FULL GEAR, and so many other magic moments. Likewise, Mike Tyson always commands a massive ovation and the attention of fans worldwide. I’m excited for everyone here in Jacksonville, and for those watching on TNT and around the world, to see what Mike Tyson has in store for AEW.”
Mike Tyson is no stranger to the world of professional wrestling having appeared as a special enforcer at WrestleMania 14 for the match between Stone Cold Steve Austin and Shawn Michaels. Prior to the match on an episode of RAW, Tyson brawled with Steve Austin in what has become one of the most famous moments in the show’s history.
