Good ol’ JR is popular amongst WWE fans for calling some of the greatest WWE matches during the Attitude Era. Although he’s sorely missed as a commentator on WWE TV, THQ will be bringing him back as a commentator in the Attitude Era-themed title, WWE ’13.
Jim Ross, currently working as play-by-play commentator on WWE’s developmental TV show WWE NXT, recently stated that he was excited to rejoin his longtime friend and fellow play-by-play commentator Jerry Lawler during the development of WWE ’13:
Excited about rejoining @Jerry Lawler on the Attitude Era portion of the new, WWE13 video game out this fall. Pre orders are reportedly going really well and more info on pre-ordering can be had at many sites including THQ.com. King and I had a lot of fun recreating our commentary from the Attitude Era of which you will readily hear.
WWE ’13 will be released on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii on October 30th, 2012 and will run on the Predator Technology 2.0 engine.
