WWE champion AJ Styles has been announced as the cover athlete for the upcoming WWE 2K19 video game. The cover was officially revealed today at a press conference hosted by WWE’s Corey Graves.
Says Styles, “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 Superstar.”
The game will be released worldwide on Tuesday, October 9th for Xbox One, PS4 and Windows PC.
In addition to landing the cover, The Phenomenal One also announced a “WWE 2K19 Million Dollar Challenge” sweepstakes that is available for gamers on PS4 and Xbox One. Gamers who beat a yet-to-be revealed game mode and send in a video showing them defeating AJ Styles in the game will be eligible to enter a four person tournament, with the winner going head-to-head with the man himself for $1 million.
