The UFC’s Brock Lesnar will be in the upcoming WWE ’12 from THQ. Brock is a former WWE champion as many PINFALL Magazine readers know, and it’s interesting to see him crossing over back into the world of wrestling, even if it is just in virtual form.

Tom Filsinger and Filsinger Games have been making wrestling games for 25 years. They have two popular series (Champions of the Galaxy & Legends of Wrestling), and on July 13th they’ll be releasing their third. Most PINFALL Magazine readers are aware of my affinity for CHIKARA as a wrestling organization, but I couldn’t be more excited to see an actual licensed game from the company. In a day and age when the WWE is seen …
