Much like waiting for the reveal of the cover art on the new FIFA game each year, the reveal of the cover art for WWE wrestling games each year gets fans talking. It always has fans speculating and wondering who will be the cover star, and today 2K Games have revealed which superstar will grace the cover.
The cover of WWE 2K17 will take you to Suplex City B**CH! That’s right, Brock Lesnar aka The Beast Incarnate will be the cover star for WWE 2K17. This is another accomplishment to add to Lesnar’s list of accolades which already boasts Lesnar, NCAA, UFC, and WWE championships as well as a Royal Rumble and King of the Ring victories. Fans are always chanting for him to take opponents to “Suplex City,” thanks love of repeatedly German suplexing opponents, while in the ring.
While attending a press release about the unveiling of the cover of the game, Lesnar had the following to say: “My career has been defined by dominating every opportunity presented to me. I am excited for my newest opportunity representing WWE 2K17 as the franchise’s ambassador and honored to serve as the WWE 2K17 cover Superstar.” As big a star as Lesnar is, he is still gracious about being chosen as the cover star.
And of course, where ever Brock goes, his advocate Paul Heyman is not far behind, as the reveal trailer is narrated by Heyman himself. He also spoke at the press release and this is what he had to say: “Ladies and gentlemen, my client has truly conquered everything in his path, and unleashing Suplex City through WWE 2K17 will be no different. As the advocate for Brock Lesnar, I can assure you his embodiment of unadulterated excellence, combined with a Beast’s desire to CONQUER all platforms in the gaming world, will make for a video game and supporting campaign that fans will embrace and absolutely cannot ignore this year.”
With the announcement of Golberg as a pre-order, John Cena, Ultimate Warrior and Sasha Banks so far, WWE 2K17 is surely to have a massive and incredible roster. Along with that 2K and Yuke’s have promised new features for 2K17 which will be revealed in due time.
We can’t wait to take a trip to Suplex City when the game hits on October 11, 2016 on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.
