Give me a Hell Yeah!!!. Yes, my excitement has gone through the roof with the news that Stone Cold Steve Austin has been confirmed as the cover star for WWE 2K16.
If you don’t know who Stone Cold was, get off this page right now!. No, don’t really…. He was one of the most ruthless, hell-raising SuperStars in the brilliant WWE Attitude Era. The man himself, whilst probably drinking some beer, had this to say:
I’ve had the privilege of working with 2K to support the WWE 2K franchise, and now I’m absolutely honored to serve as the WWE 2K16 cover Superstar. No disrespect to the previous and extremely deserving WWE 2K cover Superstars – Dwayne ‘The Rock®’ Johnson and John Cena® – but it’s about time the franchise raised some hell with yours truly on the cover. I look forward to injecting a dose of ‘Texas Rattlesnake’ into this year’s game and overall campaign.
Chris Snyder, Vice President of Marketing at 2K also commented on the announcement:
Stone Cold Steve Austin’s iconic style, unmistakable personality and worldwide reverence from the WWE Universe make him the ideal fit for WWE 2K16. Not only will Austin grace the video game’s cover, but he’s involved in shaping its creative direction. Through his numerous contributions, inclusion on the largest roster in franchise history and the game’s to-be-announced features, WWE 2K16 is certain to put everyone on notice.
