Mike Tyson to feature in latest WWE video game!

Former heavyweight world champ Mike Tyson will return to the ring. In a video game, that is. THQ will soon be releasing their brand new wrestling game WWE '13 and the controversial boxing great Mike Tyson will be featured on the game.

Tyson is no stranger to the world of wrestling. In 1998 he made headlines when he made his debut on the show and became one of the main parts of the 'Attitude Era'. Most wrestling fans will remember him for the time he acted as the special guest referee in a wrestling match between Shawn Michaels and Stone Cold Steve Austin. Tyson was supposedly meant to be in alliance with Michaels but during the match 'Iron Mike' interfered and allowed Austin to win the match.

He also returned in January 2011 as a guest host on Monday Night Raw and he was inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame on April 2nd 2012.

"The baddest man on the planet is back, and only in WWE '13 said Tyson, who sounded very happy about being featured on such a popular game.

Sean Ratcliffe, the vice president of Global Brand Management and THQ also commented on Mike being added to the game:

"As one of the most dominant champions in boxing history and one of the most memorable guests to ever be featured on WWE programming, Mike Tyson led an incredible revolution that changed the way that fans perceive the sport."
