Seth Rollins Will Be On The Cover Of ‘WWE 2K18’ This Fall

This morning, Seth Rollins appears on ESPN as part of their usual hype with WWE over whatever news they feel like releasing on occasion. (Seriously, a lot of WWE’s “news” on ESPN is pre-planned announcements or interviews with people, the network really doesn’t cover them as a sport, unlike Japan.) The big announcement they made is that Rollins will be the next superstar on the cover of the upcoming WWE 2K18. The game will be released on October 17, with pre-orders being taken now.

This is actually pretty cool news as far as the current roster goes, because it’s the first time in five years a full-time member of the roster has been featured on the cover. The last person to do so was CM Punk on WWE ’13, which was also the last game made before 2K Games took over the license from THQ. Since then it has featured on their main cover and alternate covers retired wrestlers (Ultimate Warrior, Daniel Bryan, Stone Cold Steve Austin) and people who wrestle for the company on a part-time basis (The Rock, John Cena, Brock Lesnar). So having Rollins on the cover is a big step for the current generation of performers as they’ve stepped out of the shadow of hallmark names and are going with hard-working members again.
