This year’s WWE video game cover-star has been named, and he’s the Kingslayer – Seth Rollins.
Be like no one
These four simple words likely generate several reactions, but for WWE Superstar Seth Rollins™, they are a master class in describing his unmatched work ethic, disruptive mindset and definitive WWE career.
Since joining WWE in 2010, Rollins has done things on his own terms. Like many claim but never accomplish, he was destined to be different, forge his own trail and take no prisoners along the way, even if it meant disrespecting history. The first move on Rollins’ chess board: become the inaugural NXT® Champion in 2012 and put everyone on high alert.
The second move: make his WWE main roster debut at Survivor Series® later that year, align with WWE Superstars Roman Reigns™ and Dean Ambrose™ to form The Shield™ and rally against authority. As the pieces continued moving, the accolades followed: two-time WWE Champion, United States Champion, WWE Tag Team Champion and “Mr. Money in the Bank®,” to name a few. And now, “The Kingslayer” stands tall after a definitive checkmate: defeating Triple H® on WWE’s grandest stage at WrestleMania® 33.
For every calculated action and result, there is no question Rollins will prevail by any means necessary, and in doing so, embody everything it means to be like no one.
I have to admit, I’m lost on the current state of the WWE. I was a HUGE fan in the 80s and again in the 90s, but man I have no clue now. What I do know is that Seth Rollins here is a big part of the Federation at this point. Seems like he’s significantly more well liked than some other former SHIELD-alum too. So with that, it’s probably a foregone that he’s on the front of the box here.
WWE goes deluxe
While Rollins will appear on the cover of the basic edition of WWE 2K18, he’ll likewise be on the box of the forthcoming Deluxe version. You’ll be able to get this one in both physical and digital flavors too. Oh, and you will get a nice little selection of bonuses for buying up.
Among those will be the ability to play the game a full four days early, on October 13th, for the Xbox One, PS4, or PC. Here’s what’s included:
- Copy of WWE 2K18 video game with Deluxe Edition packaging;
- Access to Season Pass content (details announced this fall);
- Access to WWE 2K18 pre-order bonus digital content (details announced this summer);
- Additional WWE 2K18 Collector’s Edition digital content (details announced this summer).
