WWE reportedly failed to reach a deal for Mike Tyson to do SummerSlam voiceover work for Roman Reigns’s match with John Cena.

The returning Cena challenges for Reigns’ WWE Universal Championship on the pay-per-view in Las Vegas on Saturday.

And according to PWInsider, the WWE wanted Tyson to provide a voiceover for the opening video package, centred around Cena and Reigns.

But it is claimed they could not negotiate a deal with the heavyweight boxing legend.

Tyson, 55, is a WWE Hall of Famer and famously enforced the WrestleMania 14 main-event against Steve Austin and Shawn Michaels.

Iron Mike, suspended from boxing at the time for biting Evander Holyfield’s ear off a year prior, was paid a reported £2.5million.

Boxing champions Floyd Mayweather, 44, and Tyson Fury, 33, have also starred on WWE PPV’s.

More recently, Tyson has featured on WWE’s rival promotion All Elite Wrestling.

He awarded Cody Rhodes with the AEW TNT Championship at the Double or Nothing PPV in May 2020.

At the time, Tyson was preparing to make a return to the boxing ring, 15 years after retiring.

And he did so last November, drawing with Roy Jones Jr, 52, in an eight-round exhibition.

Also making a comeback is Cena, now a Hollywood superstar, who shocked fans by returning at Money in the Bank in July.

He immediately feuded with champ Reigns, setting them up with their SummerSlam clash.
