The latest game in the long-running WWE series has revealed that Seth Rollins will be appearing on the cover of WWE 2K18.
Rollins actually broke the news on ESPN today, appearing on the SportsCenter in an interview.
“It was an honor for me,” Rollins told ESPN of discovering he would be on the cover. “You look at some of the previous names who have graced the cover of WWE video games over the years and to be amongst those is truly an honor and I’m humbled by it.
As it turns out, Roliins is actually a pretty big video game fan. He shared a little more information with ESPN about the games he plays and talks about how he is trying to lead his Chicago Bears to the promised land.
“I like sports games. I grew up playing Madden and some of the baseball games like Ken Griffey Jr.’s baseball game and R.B.I. Baseball,” Rollins said. “I like first-person story games as well. I can’t get into Call of Duty and third-person games. It makes me dizzy and crazy. But Resident Evil and Metal Gear Solid were my jams growing up. When I play Madden, I play at a very high level so it’s competitive. I’m currently in the fourth year of my franchise and I haven’t gotten to the conference championship game but I’m still building. We’re a young team, we’re coming around and sooner or later we’ll make our Super Bowl run.”
Rollins will become one of the more recent cover stars that is actually a full-time star. Previous cover stars like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Brock Lesnar and John Cena have all either retired from wrestling altogether or are just part-time stars.
