"Iron" Mike Tyson is coming back to the pro wrestling world this week.
All Elite Wrestling announced on Tuesday that the former "Baddest Man on the Planet" will be making his return to the promotion at their weekly AEW on TNT program on Wednesday evening at Daily's Place amphitheater in Jacksonville, Florida.
Featured below is the official statement released by the company to announce the news of Mike Tyson returning on the Wednesday, April 7, 2021 episode of AEW Dynamite on TNT:
“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,” said AEW President, General Manager, Head of Creative & CEO Tony Khan. “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.”
