The Vince McMahon lawsuit last week shocked the wrestling world to its core, and now WWE and their licensing partners are taking action.
When it comes to Brock Lesnar, it looks like he’s been removed from WWE Supercard.
This news comes from PWInsider who stated:
“Several PWInsider.com readers sent word that Brock Lesnar has disappeared from the WWE 2K Supercard Digital Collectible Game online. In asking around, we have confirmed Lesnar was indeed pulled from the game…”
“It would appear that 2K, as a licensee for WWE, is following the company's lead after WWE backed off on using Lesnar last weekend at the Royal Rumble event. Lesnar was slated to return and begin his Wrestlemania season storyline, but in the wake of the Janel Grant lawsuit filed against WWE, Vince McMahon and John Laurinaitis several days before, we are told the company chose to "withdraw" Lesnar's involvement.
“Going forward, PWInsider.com has been told by sources familiar to the matter that we should expect to see Lesnar downplayed (if not outright removed as he was in the Supercard game) as much as possible going forward by 2K and potentially other licensees…”
We will keep you posted on any developments when it comes to Lesnar.
