Eric Bischoff made headlines on Tuesday when he ripped dirt sheets for reporting that Hulk Hogan had a deal with 2KSports to be included in WWE ’14. While we quickly dismissed Bischoff’s claims, WWE Games creative director Cory Ledesma did an interview about the game that pretty much completely contradicted Bischoff’s claims.
Below is an excerpt from Ledesma talking about how critical Hulk Hogan it was to get him in WWE 2K14:
The first hurdle we had was Hulk Hogan. Hulk Hogan is currently not with the WWE. We knew that if we couldn’t get Hulk Hogan, we weren’t going to have a “30 Years of Wrestlemania” mode. It’s just not possible…
Once we could overcome that hurdle and Hulk Hogan was able to get into the game, we knew it was going to be kind of downhill from there.
