"As the WWE 2K18 cover Superstar and franchise ambassador, it is my incredible honor and mission to ensure this game will truly BE LIKE NO ONE - a calling card flawless for everything I stand for - as it sets forth on its own unique path", said Seth Rollins.
It will be interesting to see what Rollins' cover appearance means for WWE 2K18's gameplay as well, as past iterations of the series have seen a story mode dedicated to the cover athlete that tells a story unique to their WWE experiences.
For the past several releases the WWE 2k games have either featured a part-time wrestler or a veteran roster member (John Cena- WWE 2K15).
For the first time, an Iowan will grace the cover of the WWE's signature video game.
He does join an elite group of wrestlers who have graced the front of the cover such as the Texas Rattlesnake Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock and Brock Lesnar.
The only question now ... is Seth as dominant in WWE2K as he is in Madden? Let us know in the comments.

Congregants on the scene who were attending to the injured happened to see a police van driving by, so they flagged it down. However, the mosque was shut down and reorganized and has not been associated with radical views for more than a decade.
I get the feeling the 2K guys and gals in the marketing department seem to have a better idea of Rollins' personality and direction for his booking than Vince and the rest of the WWE creative team.
Since joining WWE in 2010, Rollins has done things on his own terms.
Ever since the Phenom made his theatrical exit from the ring at the Showcase of the Immortals, the WWE Universe has been intensely speculating on whether the legend of the game has indeed retired. So to be in the game as a playable character and the way graphics are nowadays, the likeness is nearly uncanny. The game features the man who defeated Triple H at this past year's Wrestlemania, even though he's been booked pretty uneven outside of his feud with Triple H.
Rollins was born in Buffalo, Iowa, and lives in Davenport.
"I like sports games". But Resident Evil and Metal Gear Solid were my jams growing up. I'm now in the fourth year of my franchise and I haven't gotten to the conference championship game but I'm still building.
