AJ Styles has for a long time, been on the best wrestlers in the world but for years, it looked like he would never step foot in a WWE ring. Now, he’s the sole cover star of the next WWE video game.
Styles will be on the cover of WWE 2K19 which is scheduled to release October 9 this year on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. There’s no word yet as to whether there will be a Nintendo Switch version.
The Phenomenal One is well an avid video game fan with a personal collection of consoles. He’s also a regular guest on gaming YouTube channel Up Up Down Down which is run by the New Day’s Xavier Woods.
AJ Styles will be the superstar on the WWE 2K19 front cover – Styles himself is an avid gamer
Styles is understandably delighted to be on the cover: ‘As a hardcore gamer and ambassador of everything it means to ‘Never Say Never’ in both my professional and personal life, it is a dream come true to be selected as the WWE 2K19 cover
‘From Seth Rollins last year to Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, John Cena, Stone Cold Steve Austin and Brock Lesnar, I am honored to join this incredible list of past WWE 2K cover Superstars and put my own unique stamp on the franchise.’
Rumoured to join him in the game is UFC superstar turned WWE wrestler Ronda Rousey who, according to Pro Wrestling Sheet, will be in the game as a pre-order bonus.
On top of that, the report claims that Rey Mysterio was also on set and could play a big role in the game. Mysertio isn’t currently under contract with the WWE but appeared at the Greatest Royal Rumble event in Saudi Arabia.
Finally, 2K games have announced a new competition which could win you the chance to meet AJ Styles and potentially $1million (£759k). To enter, you will have to beat a new, unannounced game mode for 2K19 and send a promotional video as to why you’ll beat AJ Styles at the game.
Then, four people will compete in the semi-finals and the winner will then compete in 2K19 against Styles. If that person beats the Phenomenal One, they’ll take home the $1m prize.
