In 1998, Tyson’s first role in the WWE came on Monday Night Raw when a melee broke out between him and Stone Cold Steve Austin.  Tyson then played the role as referee in Wrestlemania XIV in the matchup between Austin and Shawn Michaels.   Tyson also made an appearance last year as host of Monday Night Raw. Last year, Tyson was inducted into Boxing’s Hall of Fame for his illustrious fighting career.  At 20 years of age, Tyson became the youngest to win the heavyweight title defeating Trevor Berbick.  He finished his career with a 50-6 record, 44 of those victories by way of knockout.
