With this week’s AEW Dynamite going head-to-head with the first night of NXT TakeOver: Stand and Deliver, Tony Khan’s promotion has announced that Mike Tyson will be appearing on tomorrow night’s episode of AEW’s flagship show.
In an official press release, Tyson has been confirmed to appear live on Dynamite, with AEW promoting this as an opportunity for fans in the Jacksonville area to see Iron Mike “in a safe, live event setting”.
Previously, of course, the two AEW appearances of Tyson to date – at last year’s Double or Nothing PPV and the following week’s Dynamite – played out in an empty arena setting.
Most recently, Mike Tyson stepped back into the boxing ring this past November. There, he fought to a decision draw against Roy Jones Jr. in an eight-round exhibition bout.
In addition to an appearance from Tyson, this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite will also feature:
- TNT Champion Darby Allin vs. JD Drake
- Hangman Page vs. Max Caster
- Jon Moxley & The Young Bucks vs. Kenny Omega & The Good Brothers
Tickets for tomorrow’s Dynamite on still available and can be purchased from the usual AEWTIX.com.
