Mike Tyson will be part of Saturday’s AEW Double Or Nothing pay-per-view and based on recent photos and videos that have been posted on social media in recent weeks, it looks like he’s in great shape and ready to knock someone out.
Tyson’s role at Double or Nothing will be to present the TNT Championship to the winner of the match between Cody Rhodes and Lance Archer but, as the announcers pointed out on AEW Dynamite, Tyson has free reign to hang around ringside. Jim Ross has strongly hinted that Tyson may end up knocking someone out before the end of the night.
The 53-year-old has been getting a lot of buzz in recent weeks because he’s talked about wanting to step into the boxing ring again for an exhibition fight to raise money for charity. On Wednesday, Tyson showed the world that he’s in fighting shape again. ”
“Hey I’m Mike Tyson, I’m on Weibo now and letting you know there’s a possibility I might come back,” he said. “But if I do, I’m going to fight with the spirit of Mao.”
