You ready for another entry into a world of pain? Well WWE 2K17 is here to tell you that Brock Lesnar is the latest gatekeeper in the WWE video game franchise.

The announcement page introduces you to this fighting champion, in case you haven’t met Brock Lesnar yet.

Coming off an impressive collegiate wrestling career for the University of Minnesota, where he became the NCAA Division I Heavyweight Champion his senior year, Lesnar made his WWE debut in 2002 and was quickly nicknamed “The Next Big Thing” by his advocate, Paul Heyman. Later that year, he became the youngest WWE World Heavyweight Champion in company history, at age 25, by defeating Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson at SummerSlam. Lesnar later won two additional WWE World Heavyweight Championships and had notable rivalries with WWE Superstars Undertaker, John Cena and Big Show, among others.

“My career has been defined by dominating every opportunity presented to me,” stated Brock Lesnar. “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.”

WWE 2K17 is set to release on both PS4/Xbox One, as well as PS3/Xbox 360 on October 11th. You can preorder WWE 2K17 here, and check out their Facebook and Twitter for all the latest updates.
