“The Baddest Man on the Planet” Mike Tyson is returning to AEW Dynamite for the first time since his altercation with Chris Jericho last May.
AEW president Tony Khan confirmed the news in a recent interview with Sports Illustrated.
“He made a huge impact last year at Double or Nothing, and we’re at a point where we can bring him back in front of our fans. The fans who have come to the shows in Jacksonville have added so much to AEW, and it’s important for me that our fans get to see him live. We’re excited to have Mike back,” Khan said of Tyson’s impending return to the world of pro-wrestling.
AEW provided more details via press release on social media on Tuesday.
It ain’t his first rodeo, but Wednesday’s Dynamite will mark Tyson’s first AEW appearance in front of a live crowd.
The boxing legend presented Cody Rhodes with the new TNT championship at Double or Nothing last year. He last appeared on Dynamite back in May when he got into a wild altercation with Chris Jericho. Jericho will also be appearing on Wednesday’s show, and it’s safe to say the two men have a score to settle.
The April 7th Dynamite will be going head-to-head with NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver on the USA Network.
