WWE news: Mike Tyson confronts Jake The Snake at AEW Double or Nothing

  • Alex Batt

During these uncertain times, wrestling has kept many of us occupied and has given us something to watch during lockdown.

Whether it be RAW or SmackDown every week from WWE, or even the monthly pay-per-views such as WrestleMania and Money In The Bank, wrestling has given us a much-needed break away from reality. 

It’s not just the wrestling, however, WWE have also given us ‘The Last Ride’ which is currently gripping the world. The documentary following Undertaker around for the past few years is truly fascinating and scintillating to watch, with a new episode dropping every Sunday over a five-week period.

BUT, this weekend it hasn’t been WWE that has kept us entertained, it’s been AEW.

Cody Rhodes, Jon Moxley, Chris Jericho and co. put on Double or Nothing last night and it’s safe to say it was truly, truly entertaining and it delivered despite the issues they’ve had to deal with.

Maybe they’ve learnt from how WWE are running their shows, but the fact there were no fans in attendance didn’t really effect the proceedings whatsoever.

The main event was absolute madness, causing chaos around en empty stadium, and Rhodes himself became the company’s first ever TNT Champion.

And it was during that match where one of the highlights of the night took place.

With Rhodes and Lance Archer doing battle in the middle of the ring, wrestling legend Jake The Snake Roberts appeared at the top of the ramp, ready to come down and interfere in the match.

BUT, as can be seen in the video above, his move was delayed and obstructed by boxing legend Mike Tyson, who was there all evening for the event… although he was spotted yawning at some points…

Tyson has been in the news a lot recently, with plenty of speculation surrounding his return to the ring, and it’s easy to see that he’s been working hard in the gym ahead of the reunion to the sport.

Ripping off his shirt and shouting at Jake, ‘Iron Mike’ looked in incredible shape.

Somewhat unsurprisingly, Jake The Snake was quick to abandon ship and headed backstage, avoiding any potential run-in with the heavyweight legend.

Overall it was a fantastic night for AEW, but it was also a reminder of just how good a 53-year-old Mike Tyson looks!
