See that headline in big, black writing at the top of your screen: we’re not making it up. We almost spilled hot tea all over our desk when we read the press release from THQ, but the publisher seems pretty serious about it. As far as we know, it’s not April Fools’ Day today.

Nope, professional boxer and occasional ear-biter Mike Tyson is really going to make an appearance in WWE ’13. Apparently, Tyson will be reprising his role from 1998 as a ringside enforcer for D-Generation X. He’s also a playable character in the game – just don’t expect him to do any, y’know, wrestling.

The so-called "baddest man on the planet" will be available for free to anyone that pre-orders a copy of the annual wrestling entry. You know what you need to do.
