Several 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.

The Grant lawsuit featured references to a former UFC Champion involved, allegedly being offered Grant for sexual gratification by McMahon and allegedly making what can only be referred to as disgusting requests from Grant.  The Wall Street Journal identified Lesnar as that former champion in their reporting.

Going forward, 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.
