'The People's Champion' to bring electrifying charisma to the next iteration of WWE video games
During last night's episode of Monday Night Raw, 2K unveiled that the WWE 2K14 cover art features WWE Superstar Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Designed in partnership with "The People"s Champion", the cover art reflects The Rock's physicality and signature in-ring pose.
Widely considered one of the greatest WWE Superstars of all time, The Rock - a third-generation competitor who followed in the footsteps of his father and grandfather - rose to mainstream fame in both tag team and singles action during the late 1990s as part of the company's highly regarded "Attitude Era". His impressive resume currently boasts eight reigns as WWE Champion, in addition to several reigns as WCW Champion, Intercontinental Champion and WWE Tag Team Champion. In recent years, The Rock returned to WWE and spurred several historic moments, including a victory on January 27, 2013 over CM Punk at Royal Rumble to win the WWE Championship - his first WWE championship reign in over ten years. He was last in the ring at WrestleMania 29 on April 7, 2013, which saw The Rock in action against his long-standing rival, John Cena.
WWE 2K14 will be available this October for PS3 and Xbox 360.
