He may be best-known for his career as a boxer, but former undisputed heavyweight champ Mike Tyson will soon be stepping back into the virtual ring as a playable character in THQ's WWE '13 for those who pre-order the game. The latest entry in the popular pro wrestling series comes to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii consoles on October 30, 2012, and the press release notes that the bonus offer applies to all three platforms.
Tyson's appearance in WWE '13 links to his real life involvement with the pro wrestling organization in the late '90s, back when it was still the WWF. He made an appearance at WrestleMania 14 as an enforcer during the main event match-up between Shawn Michaels and Stone Cold Steve Austin, and it was his interference that won Austin the title. It's this version of Tyson that players will see in the game, wearing a sleeveless DX t-shirt and black jeans, since the single player modes in WWE '13 takes players back to the WWF's "Attitude Era."
