    Iron Mike Tyson is returning to the ring ... sort of.

    The boxer will be inducted into the celebrity wing of the WWE Hall of Fame in Miami on March 31.

    The ceremony will be held at the AmericanAirlines Arena the night before the WWE holds in annual WrestleMania event at Sun Life Stadium on April 1.

    Tyson served as a special enforcer at WrestleMania 14 and made the three count as Stone Cold Steve Austin defeated Shawn Michaels for the WWE championship.

    He also made an appearance as a guest host for the company’s Monday Night Raw television show last year.

    Other celebrities already inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame include Drew Carey, William “The Refrigerator” Perry, Bob Eucker and Pete Rose.

    Tyson was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2011.
