Mike Tyson will present the new AEW championship belt at the upcoming pay-per-view Double or Nothing. This development comes amid talk of his boxing return. Tyson will present the newly-created TNT Championship title to either Cody Rhodes or Lance Archer, who will face off in a highly-anticipated contest.
The news was confirmed on AEW’s episode of Dynamite.
Tyson, who is a WWE Hall of Famer, has been training quite well for the last month after revealing his intention of wanting to compete in exhibition bouts for charity.

Not only in the boxing ring, but Tyson has also expressed his desire to make another WWE appearance, 22 years after he starred at WrestleMania 14.
In the epic clash of 1998, the heavyweight boxer was the special enforcer in the main event where Stone Cold Steve Austin and Shawn Michaels locked horns.
The moment where he knocked out Michaels and counted the pin for Austin still remains one of the most viewed moments in WWE history.
Addressing a query on his WWE comeback, Tyson said in January: “I’m always willing to come back, I love the WWE. I’d love to be back.”
This is not the first instance of ‘Iron Mike’ attending an AEW event, as he was backstage at last year’s Double Or Nothing.
