“My career has been defined by dominating every opportunity presented to me,” Brock Lesnar told The Big Story. “I am excited for my newest opportunity representing WWE 2K17 as the franchise’s ambassador and honored to serve as the WWE 2K17 cover superstar.”
“The moment he announced his retirement from mixed martial arts, I think he regretted it,” Paul Heyman said. “I think he regretted the fact that, for the first time in his life, in perfect health he never had the chance to compete. It was the one decision in his life he was ever second-guessing.”
“When you’re at Brock Lesnar’s level of being a box office attraction, everything effects what you’re going to be doing at your next appearance because anything can throw you off course,” Heyman said. “The result of this fight, how it will affect SummerSlam, hopefully it will make Brock Lesnar even a bigger star on a global basis and drive a whole bunch of fans back to WWE or over to WWE.”
The WWE 2K17 video game is expected to be released on October 25th. The game will be available on all major consoles including PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
