– THQ Wanted Chris JerichoÂ in New WWE Video Game
THE new WWE video game, WWE â€™12, features plenty of superstars who are no active wrestlers (with WWE). The list includes: Brock Lesnar, Batista, Arn Anderson, Ricky Steamboat etc. However, the game will not feature the first ever Undisputed Champion, Chris Jericho.
The news was broke several weeks ago, but THQâ€™sÂ Creative Director Cory Ledesma may haveÂ mistakenlyÂ given us an insight to why Jericho isnâ€™t in the game. Last night he tweeted a reply to a fan questioning why Jericho wasnâ€™t in WWE â€™12, but then later deleted his tweet. His tweet read:Â â€œNot having Jericho on the roster was not a creative decision. Cant say much more than that. Factors beyond our control. We wanted him too.â€
Ultimately, WWE officials give the final approval to the roster of a WWE video game.With this latest development, perhaps not having Jericho in the game is a ploy to entice Jericho back to WWE?
And for those who like to play and wrestle with woman, THQ have announced that the DLC pack #2 will release in December 2011 withÂ Trish Stratus, Kharma, The Bella Twins, Vickie EXCUSE ME GuerreroÂ andÂ Alicia FoxÂ (she will be part of the free Divas DLC).
WWE 12 is released at the end of next month. Pre-order your copyÂ HERE.
