WWE 2K18 Cover Athlete is Seth Rollins



It has been confirmed by WWE that Seth Rollins will be making an appearance on ESPN SportsCenter Monday morning to make a "big announcement".

The segment airs live at 10am EST and speculation has the self proclaimed Kingslayer announcing himself as the cover star of WWE 2K18.

Edit: Former WWE champion Seth Rollins will be on ESPN SportsCenter at 10:30AM ET on Monday to make an announcement, hours before Roman Reigns will be making his own announcement during Raw regarding SummerSlam.

There are rumors that this announcement will be related to the WWE 2K18 video game, where apparently Rollins is the cover Superstar. The WWE Twitter account has been running several teasers with the hashtag #BLN1 which stands for Be Like No One and #ThisMonday.

These tweets come along with quotes of WWE Legends including Triple H and Stone Cold Steve Austin.

The company has been pretty good in creating buzz for their video games and their last campaign for WWE 2K17 with Goldberg was well received.

This would be interesting and a huge change from recent years where part timers and old timers have been on the cover. Maybe a change to really focusing on the future.

I really hope they don't change to focus on the future. A ton of sales come from those that only remember the past time. That's what makes me keep buying the games.

I won't touch it unless it includes things from the past. I think they can focus on both as they have been doing.

Re: Seth Rollins to be on the cover of WWE 2K18?

Seth Rollins is one of my favorites, so I'm happy he's the cover guy this year. That being said, I'm happy in general to see them using a current guy.

I know a lot of people enjoy the former stars getting the cover, but I'm not one of them. I like to see current guys get their time in the spotlight, and in this case, it's very well deserved! I'm looking forward to seeing some footage of the game at some point.

While I see your point, and I'm a fan of some of the older stuff they put in as well, that'd be extremely short-sided of them to do moving forward. For every fan of the Attitude era or any era prior, there's at least (total speculation) one fan of the current era buying these games. Does a mode highlighting the best of Hulk Hogan's career do anything for a 12 year old?

Unfortunately for WWE, professional wrestling in general doesn't really do anything for a 12 year old. The average age of the WWE viewer is now into their 40s. In 1997, it used to be 23. It's a pretty radical demographic shift.
