Steve Austin & CM Punk To Face Off, Tensai Talks WWE Return & Differences In WWE

– Jim Ross noted on his Twitter account that he will conduct a sitdown face to face interview with CM Punk and Steve Austin this weekend in Los Angeles. The interview will be used for promotion in the forthcoming WWE ’13 videogame being released by THQ.

Marketing and promotion for WWE ’13 is being centered around Punk and the return of the “Attitude era” in the game. Austin of course epitomizes that era of WWE history.

As reported earlier, THQ and WWE will unveil the complete roster for the game, slated for a 10/30 release on all major gaming platforms, this weekend during the Summerslam AXXESS event.

– In the September edition of the WWE Magazine, Tensai was asked about the differences between the WWE locker room in the mid-2000s when he left and in the 2012 when he returned.

“I don’t know if they’re tougher, because when I was years ago, there were a lot of men on the roster. When I came back, there were a lot of young faces, a lot of kids. The talent that walks in the locker room is amazing now, but in terms of toughness…well, this is a tough business. The current roster is a bunch of tough guys, and I give them a lot of credit. It’s a man’s game. I hit people hard and they hit me back harder. Let’s just say I’ve had a couple of fights.”
