In an announcement by his advocate, Paul Heyman, it has been revealed that The Beast Incarnate, Brock Lesnar, will grace the cover of the newest release of WWE’s annual video game franchise. We’d expect a more formal announcement as early as Raw tonight, likely with some sort of over-sized banner, although Lesnar himself is not scheduled for an appearance. Lesnar is no stranger to being a cover athlete, as he was also front and center on the UFC Undisputed 2010 game, and has also appeared on earlier WWE video games, including the critically-acclaimed WWE Smackdown: Here Comes The Pain.
Lesnar has most recently made news for agreeing to a one-time return to MMA, and will face Mark Hunt at UFC 200, as well as being advertised to appear at WWE SummerSlam in August. WWE 2K17 is set to be released this fall.
