WWE Superstar Seth Rollins appeared on SportsCenter this morning to announce that he has been named WWE 2K18 cover athlete.


"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.

"I'm also just excited for our generation of guys, the new generation of up-and-coming guys, to be the first of us to be on the cover. It's cool and not just exciting for me but our entire locker room."

With today's announcement, Rollins joins current WWE Universal champion Brock Lesnar, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, John Cena and The Rock as cover athletes since 2K and Visual Concepts took over the WWE licensing. 

WWE 2K18 will be released October 17th. Pre-orders are currently available here.
