F4WOnline.com later reported that Warrior's deal with 2K Sports is not something that carries on with the WWE. The Warrior is not scheduled to appear on WWE television any time soon, though that may change over the coming months. Warrior hasn't appeared on WWE TV since his short-lived return in the mid 90s, when his squash victory over Triple H at WrestleMania 12 failed to reignite interest in a comeback of a former star and he was burnt out several months later.
WWE 2K14 will be Warriors first appearance in a WWE video-game since 2011s WWE All-Stars. 2K14 will be released in North America on October 29 and in Europe on November 1. The game will be available for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
