When it was announced that former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson would be at the AEW Double or Nothing pay-per-view, it was obvious he'd do a little more than simply hand the TNT championship belt to the winner of the match between Cody and Lance Archer. While Tyson didn't unload any knockout punches as teased earlier in the week, he did make his presence felt in lending an assist to the eventual winner of the match.

Toward the end of the bout, Arn Anderson and Jake Roberts -- respectively seconding Cody and Archer -- were tossed from ringside after Anderson interfered. Seconds later, Roberts attempted to make his way back to the ring carrying his signature snake in a bag. That brought Tyson out of the ringside seat where he'd been sitting with the championship belt.

Tyson walked to the entrance ramp and pulled his shirt off, stopping Roberts in his tracks and causing "The Snake" to retreat. Thrown by the chaos at ringside, an Archer Blackout was countered by Cody into two clean Cross Rhodes for the win with Tyson looking on and flexing.

Tyson presented Cody with the title belt, ending his short night without having to get his hands dirty. The threat of his legendary power was enough to get the job done.
