Excitement for WWE 13 is as high as ever, particularly since THQ has yet to reveal the full roster that will be featured in the game. There has been leaks galore though as we’ve informed you already and one great new rumor hints on possible roster slots being taken up by the members of the nWo.
The nWo doesn’t really need an introduction. In wrestling folklore, they were one of the biggest stables around during the heydays of the WCW and also WWE when Vince Mcmahon purchased the company in 2001. Kevin Nash was in WWE 12 after his recent return to WWE programming, but Scott Hall and Hulk Hogan are two guys who you wouldn’t expect to see in a WWE wrestling game again.
However, Captain Starball has spotted the use of an nWo t-shirt in one of the official screenshots for WWE 13 that THQ put out for promoting the appearance of Mike Tyson. You can see the t-shirt clearly above (bottom right corner) and it could be a major hint that WWE are willing to put the famous group back in the game as part of the exciting ‘Attitude Era’ campaign mode.
Could we really see deals for Hogan and Hall though? Unlikely we say. One more likely scenario is just having all of the materials in the create a wrestler mode so that fans can use nWo attire for their own wrestler if they decide to. The ball is in the WWE’s court though, not Hogan’s or Hall’s. You may also remember that Kevin Nash used the nWo theme during his WWE return, so Vince McMahon definitely hasn’t killed off all links to the stable just yet.
What are your thoughts on this? Would you like to see three roster slots taken up by Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall and Kevin Nash in their nWo attire?
