WWE 2K17 Cover Athlete Announced

WWE, and UFC, star Brock Lesnar was announced as the Superstar for WWE 2K17. Best known for his unparalleled accomplishments in WWE, UFC, NCAA Division I wrestling and more, Lesnar’s work ethic, intensity and attitude have made him a prolific sports and entertainment fixture for more than 16 years.

In addition, the “Unbeatable, Incumbent Mayor of Suplex City” will usher in WWE 2K17’s worldwide marketing campaign, inviting fans to explore a new side of Lesnar’s inspired world while learning more about the video game. WWE 2K17 is currently scheduled for worldwide release on October 11, 2016 .
 
My career has been defined by dominating every opportunity presented to me,” said Brock Lesnar. “I am excited for my newest opportunity representing WWE 2K17 as the franchise’s ambassador and honored to serve as the WWE 2K17cover Superstar.
 
Coming off an impressive collegiate wrestling career for the University of Minnesota, where he became the NCAA Division I Heavyweight Champion his senior year, Lesnar made his WWE debut in 2002 and was quickly nicknamed “The Next Big Thing” by his advocate, Paul Heyman. Later that year, he became the youngest WWE World Heavyweight Champion in company history, at age 25, by defeating Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson at SummerSlam. Lesnar later won two additional WWE World Heavyweight Championships and has had notable rivalries with WWE Superstars Undertaker, John Cena and Big Show, among others. Lesnar’s first stint with WWE concluded at WrestleMania 20 in 2004, where he was defeated by Bill Goldberg, the focus of WWE 2K17’s pre-order bonus content.
 
Following his WWE departure, Lesnar explored an NFL career following interest from the Minnesota Vikings. He also fought for several mixed martial arts promotions before signing a deal with UFC in 2007. Lesnar quickly became one of the organization’s biggest stars. During his time with UFC, Lesnar became UFC Heavyweight Champion; he tied a UFC record for the most consecutive successful Heavyweight Championship title defenses and headlined one of the highest-selling and most prominent pay-per-view events in UFC history.
