It’s time once again for WWE’s yearly video game release, and THQ is going all out to promote “WWE ’13” as the best yet in the series. THQ has put together an awesome approach this year, which will be the return of the Attitude Era and its stars as part of the game with the current WWE roster. Of course one of the most interesting pairings in all this is that of WWE Champion CM Punk and WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin, and THQ actually got the two together for an interview with Jim Ross to discuss the game….and maybe more.
This interview comes across as more than just a puff piece for the game, as Stone Cold channels more of the persona we saw in the 90’s than he has in recent years. The “what if” question seems to pop up throughout the interview with a “only in the game” vibe halfheartedly being pushed. By the end of it, there is a feeling that seeds may be getting planted for something bigger than just a WWE ’13 showdown. This match would no doubt be THE match that sells WrestleMania 29, but it remains to be seen if the stars will align and this match actually happens. We hope it does, as the buildup with Punk, Austin, and even Paul Heyman would be must see TV just for the mic work alone.
WWE ’13 comes out October 13th for all the major gaming platforms, and there is even a special “Austin 3:16” edition available. The game is also stacked with numerous current and Attitude era stars that will be released as DLC over the next few months. This game should have wrestling game fans buzzing for the next few months and well into next year.
