Mike Tyson To Present AEW TNT Title At Double Or Nothing
"Iron Mike" returns to wrestling...
In 1998, "The Baddest Man on the Planet" helped make professional wrestling history at WrestleMania 14. In just ten nights, he'll once more be involved in the world of professional wrestling.
It was announced on tonight's episode of Dynamite that boxing great Mike Tyson will be on hand at AEW Double or Nothing to present the brand new TNT championship to the winner of the tournament final between Cody Rhodes and Lance Archer.
The 53-year-old former Heavyweight champion resurfaced in the news recently, after he was shown in a training session, showing off his still-mesmerizing speed and fury. In said video, Tyson teased a comeback, and has since reportedly entertained the idea of fighting Evander Holyfield once more.
Tyson's appearances for WWE in 1998 greatly boosted the company's profile. His physical confrontation with Stone Cold Steve Austin made headlines all around the globe, building to his spot as the outside enforcer for Austin's World title match with Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania 14.
Tyson made later appearances for WWE, including a guest hosting spot a decade ago. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame's "celebrity wing" in 2012.
