This week, I would like to introduce you to two of the WWE 13 stars: the SmackDown Women’s Champion Nikki Bella and the former Heavyweight Champion, ‘The Iron Sheik’. They were both incredible in their respective matches, and I thought you might find their actions interesting.

During an interview with TMZ yesterday, Mike Tyson said he has been training for a return to the ring. He says he is “determined” to win the heavyweight title from Randy Couture. Tyson has not fought in three years, waiting until his age 46 years old and the end of his contract to make his comeback to the ring.

Mike Tyson is out of prison, and he plans to return to the ring. The former boxing champion is reportedly set to appear in a WWE video game within the next year, per a report from TMZ Sports . The former heavyweight champion is currently a playable character in the WWE video game series with his alter ego, the Iron Mike Tyson. The game series, which is produced by THQ, is based on the WWE’s professional wrestling federation. As of this writing, the game is not scheduled to be released until 2014. “Iron Mike Tyson” is a character that was originally created by the WWE in 1997 as a villain, until he was retired in November of the same year . Since his retirement, he has made several appearances in the WWE and has

THQ’s WWE 13, the latest chapter in the WWE videogame series, will see Mike Tyson return to the ring. THQ has announced that the boxing great and former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world will be available as an exclusive playable character for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii players who pre-order the game at participating stores.

After shattering hopes and dreams in Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!! for the NES, Iron Mike is no stranger to the video game arena. 

Tyson rose to prominence with WWE (NYSE: WWE) in early 1998 as part of the company’s revolutionary “Attitude Era,” an era that is heavily featured in WWE ’13’s new single-player campaign. He is most known for his performances leading up to and at WrestleMania® XIV, when he was hired by D-Generation X (DX) to act as a ringside enforcer during the WWE Championship bout between DX member Shawn Michaels and Stone Cold Steve Austin.

After a one-punch knock-out, Tyson is shown here pinning the whole ring.

 

The match was interrupted by ‘The Baddest Man on the Planet,’ who was dressed in a sleeveless DX t-shirt and black pants – the same outfit as his playable character in WWE ’13 – enabling Austin to win and renouncing his assumed affiliation with the renegade group. On January 11, 2010, Tyson returned to WWE as a guest presenter on Monday Night Raw, and on April 2, 2012, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.

Mike Tyson, as one of the most dominating champions in boxing history and one of the most memorable guests to ever appear on WWE programming, led an amazing revolution that altered the way fans view the sport, according to Sean Ratcliffe, Vice President, Global Brand Management, THQ. “He was a fantastic addition to the ‘Attitude Era,’ and he’ll undoubtedly draw a broad range of fans to ‘live the change’ in WWE ’13.”
