Mike Tyson to Appear as a Playable Character in WWE 13

Mike Tyson is being offered up as a pre-order bonus for WWE 13, THQ has announced.
The former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world (and convicted rapist, ear-biter and racing pigeon fancier) will be available as a playable character for all those that pre-order the game ahead of its October 30th release.
"The baddest man on the planet is back – and only in WWE 13," says Mike Tyson in the promo guff. "Fans everywhere can now relive what I experienced during the Attitude Era."
Tyson played a role in WWE as part of the Attitude Era, a spell in the late 90‘s when wrestling attempted becoming more “edgy.” The time period features prominently in WWE 13’s new single-player campaign.
Tyson also returned to the sport on January 11, 2010 as a guest host on Monday Night Raw and was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on April 2, 2012.
