Brock Lesnar possibly confirmed as the Mystery Superstar.

#1 Edited by CL60 (16906 posts) -

Former WWE and UFC champion Brock Lesnar will be announced as a "Legend" for the WWE '12 videogame this week by THQ.

As we noted several months back in the PWInsider Elite section, UFC approved Lesnar's inclusion in the game, as long as he was presented as Lesnar the wrestler and not Lesnar the MMA fighter.

The belief among those we spoke to when we first broke the news was that Paul Heyman, who's Looking for Larry Productions works closely with THQ, was involved in packaging the deal to bring Lesnar over to his first WWE-related licensing since he departed the company in 2004.

Now, it's not 100% confirmed, but it seems likely, people are reporting on it right now and Dana White was randomly at WWE Headquarters a while back.

EDIT: Trailer released

odd thing is for some unknown reason, I went from excited about this game to I could get it or not.
if they overhauled the CAW completely that would make me excited again. Also I'm dissapointed that create a belt is not in this year.

I wonder if when they say "as long as he was presented as Lesnar the wrestler and not Lesnar the MMA fighter." It means he wont have his stupid chest tattoo.

Cool. Wrestling always has been, and always will be, to me, far superior to any sort of legitimate fighting organization because of their ridiculous story lines.

So his involvement in anything WWE related (even a game) is good news to me. Aside from the fact that I haven't actually watched wrestling in about ten years, and I haven't played a wrestling game in about the same time (aside from the demo for WWE All Stars).

"Legend" has always seemed like a totally inappropriate name for most of the wrestlers they use..

Still kind of cool to finally see him back in a game, I thought there was a bad relationship with him and the company though?

I haven't actually watched wrestling in years either, but I'm eager to find out how the new Universe mode will work.

Brock was great fun to play as in Here Comes The Pain. I just remember his special move being fucking deadly.

And I thought nothing would top RVD being in despite working for TNA
