THQ has revealed that boxing legend Mike Tyson will appear as a playable character in WWE ’13, complete with D-Generation X ring attire.

The former heavyweight champion of the world will be available as a pre-order reward. Tyson has a long-standing relationship with the WWE, his most notable appearance was at Wrestlemania XIV where he served as an enforcer for D-Generation X, he has also guest hosted Monday Night Raw and is a member of the WWE Hall of Fame.

“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 fans perceive the sport,” said Sean Ratcliffe, THQ’s brand VP.

“The baddest man on the planet is back – and only in WWE ’13,” added the man himself. “Fans everywhere can now relive what I experienced during the ‘Attitude Era.'”

Tyson’s in-game model will sport a sleeveless DX t-shirt and black jeans, harking back to that Wrestlemania moment.
