Tyson was first introduced as a “special enforcer” for the WWF Championship match featuring Stone Cold, Steve Austin, and Sean Michaels. While being given the opportunity in the ring during Monday Night Raw by Vince McMahon, Tyson and McMahon were interrupted by Stone Cold which resulted in a shoving match primarily between Tyson and Austin.

After accepting the role as the “special enforcer”, Tyson was brought out yet again by McMahon live on Raw. This time being interrupted by D-Generation X. Another altercation ensued between Tyson and Sean Michaels which ended with Michaels ripping off Tyson shirt to reveal his allegiance to D-Generation X.

But, during the Championship match between Austin and Michaels, Tyson showed his allegiance to Stone Cold knocking out Sean Michaels at the end of the match.

But as recently as 2010, Mike Tyson matched up against DX in a tag team match with his partner Chris Jericho where Tyson turned on Jericho in the end and aligned himself with Tipple H and Sean Michaels. He has since been inducted into the WWE hall of fame by Sean Michaels and Triple H. (source)

After not appearing in either Raw and Smackdown despite being advertised, Punk thanked his fans and said that he would never return to wrestling. This was a result of being suspended for 2 months after his initial walk out. He claims to have never been contacted after his suspension was over and had a difficult time when it came to collecting his royalty payments. He also went on to state that health was also a factor in his departure.
