Boxing Legend Mike Tyson Returns to AEW DYNAMITE This Wednesday
-- Tomorrow is Tyson’s First Appearance in front of Live AEW Crowd --
April 6, 2021 – Ahead of this Wednesday’s action-packed episode of AEW DYNAMITE, All Elite
Wrestling announced that boxing legend Mike Tyson will be returning for an appearance during
its live show on TNT.
No stranger to the squared circle, Tyson appeared at the DOUBLE OR NOTHING PPV event in May
2020, followed by a memorable AEW DYNAMITE episode where he brawled with Chris Jericho
and The Inner Circle. Unlike last May, when there were no fans in attendance at Daily’s Place in
Jacksonville, Fla., fans will now have the opportunity to see Tyson in-person this Wednesday
night in a safe, live event setting.
“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
Tony Khan, CEO, GM and Head of Creative of AEW. “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.”
Last seen in the boxing ring in November 2020, Tyson competed in an eight-round exhibition
match against Roy Jones Jr., which ended in a split draw. Tyson joins a stacked lineup on this
week’s DYNAMITE, including Darby Allin defending the TNT Championship against JD Drake, #1
ranked wrestler Hangman Page defending that position against the surging “Platinum” Max
Caster, and Jon Moxley teaming with AEW World Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks to take
on AEW World Champion Kenny Omega and The Good Brothers.
Tickets for Wednesday’s show are on-sale at AEWTIX.com, and AEW’s stringent COVID-19
policies for fans will remain intact for this event.
As AEW continues to kick open the “Forbidden Door” with industry-wide cooperation and copromotion, along with huge surprises and a deep talent roster that is delivering the best matches
and most entertaining moments in professional wrestling today, be sure to tune into AEW
DYNAMITE this Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT live on TNT.
