It can be all but confirmed that Kelly Kelly will appear in WWE’s new video game, WWE ’12, due for release later this year.
K2 will be appearing at the E3 convention next week in Los Angeles to help promote the game along with The Miz and Alberto Del Rio, both of whom have been confirmed.
Obviously, with Kelly on hand for promo, it can be deduced she’ll be in the actual game. Of course, though not officially confirmed by WWE and THQ, there really isn’t any doubt that Kelly will make the cut as she’s in the top tier of Divas who appear every year.
