Mike Tyson made waves in 2020 when he showed up at AEW’s Double or Nothing pay-per view event. He blew up the internet when he and Chris Jericho brawled at the end of the following AEW Dynamite. Now, with fans in attendance, Tyson makes his AEW return! Here’s what Tony Khan had to say about Tyson’s return.
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.AEW CEO Tony Khan
