Is Mike Tyson Prepping For A Return To The Ring?

Mike Tyson has been getting in the news a lot recently.  He is now apparently prepping for a return to the ring, if you believe this new video that he shot along with Paul Heyman.  Don’t worry, I am pretty sure that he is not going to be boxing.  I do think that this confirms some rumors however.

The new pro wrestling video game, WWE 13, is going to have a mode which is a throw back to the Attitude Era, in which Mike Tyson made his pro wrestling debut.  Since the video was shot by Heyman, I think that this confirms that Mike Tyson will indeed be in WWE 13.  It has been rumored for a couple of months and this just might confirm it.

I would be shocked if this meant Mike Tyson was going to start boxing.  I think that part of his life is long behind him.  Plus, I think everyone would feel bad if they watched him box.  It just would be depressing for everyone involved.  He would be nowhere near the Tyson that we would remember from his prime.

However, I think a return to the video game circuit would be a great thing?  Remember Mike Tyson’s Punch Out on the old Nintendo?  Classic game right there.  I don’t think WWE 13 will hold up over time like that game did, but it will be great to be able to play in a video game as Iron Mike Tyson.
