THQ will develop WWE Showdown into a videogame according to domain buy

Almost two weeks ago, PWInsider reported that WWE had filed a trademark application (Serial Number: 85482730) for WWE Showdown that covered video and computer games.

As some had already speculated, it does appear WWE game publisher THQ will be releasing WWE Showdown as a videogame sometime in the near future. 

On December 13, 2011, the domain name (WHOIS) was registered with Go Daddy.

While the registrant of the name is hidden behind Go Daddy’s WHOIS privacy service – Domains by Proxy – the domain servers listed (NS1.THQ.COM, NS2.THQ.COM and NS3.THQ.COM) belong to THQ. 

Surprisingly, even though news of WWE’s trademark filing appeared on new sites like Wrestling Inc. almost two weeks ago, no one immediately cybersquatted on the domain.

Neither WWE nor THQ have made an announcement as of yet.
