CM Punk, John Cena, Brock Lesnar, Seth Rollins. Those are just some of the stars that have graced the cover of the WWE’s annual video game. Being on the game cover is a sign that the company thinks you’re a draw and a big star. So who will it be this year? There was talk on everyone The New Day to Ronda Rousey. The selection has been controversial in the past. Hardcore fans don’t like it when a big star or part-timer makes the cover. Others worry that a new star won’t attract casual fans. Luckily WWE decided to split the difference this year and go for a crowd favorite AND a favorite among gamers. They also added a legend as a pre-order character. This might be the biggest 2K to date!
