Source: TMZTMZ.com has an article up right now with the headline "Brock Lesnar Signs New Deal with WWE". They confirm what we had reported and that is that Brock Lesnar will be featured in the WWE '12 video game.
The TMZ.com article notes: "After SEVEN YEARS apart, UFC pain machine Brock Lesnar is getting back into business with the company that put him on the map -- WWE -- in a deal that will make him the "featured star" in a brand new video game." The website reports that the people developing WWE 12' approached Lesnar back in January and asked for permission to use his name and likeness in the game and the advertising campaign. Brock apparently loved the idea but had to clear it with UFC President Dana White first. White told TMZ, "I love WWE and I have nothing but love for Vince McMahon -- I'm totally OK with Brock being in the game."
The first commercial for the game -- starring Brock -- will be released tomorrow.
