Anyone wanna start a new undefeated streak in WWE 2K17?
Prior to the most recent episode of WWE RAW, WWE was teasing on Twitter that something is about to be hatched. Fans all over the world began to speculate about this cryptic tweet, wondering what it could be. Is it the debut of a new WWE Superstar? The return of someone we've seen in the past? Well, it's somewhat of the latter.
It was then revealed that the cryptic tweet referred to the return of one of WCW's greatest wrestlers that speared his way through the competition, the unstoppable Bill Goldberg. No, he won't returning to the squared circle, but instead, he'll be appearing in WWE 2K17 as playable character.
After 12 years away from the business, I’m incredibly honored to work with WWE and 2K while following in the footsteps of such greats as Ultimate Warrior, Sting and Arnold Schwarzenegger. My son was a big part of this coming together, and I can’t wait for him to see his dad kicking ass in a WWE ring through the magic of video games. I encountered the likes of The Rock, Triple H, Brock Lesnar and Ric Flair during my WWE career, and now through WWE 2K17, I’ll be taking on the biggest and baddest Superstars of today – showing them once and for all that I am still ‘Da Man!’
Bill Goldberg will be available as 2 separate characters, 1 from his WCW days and the other during his time as an active competitor in the WWE roster. Along with a couple of in-game WCW arenas, Goldberg will be available for free in the form of additional content, much like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sting in the past. The only catch is that you'll have to pre-order WWE 2K17.
WWE 2K17 will be coming to the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 some time in October of this year. Will we ever see Goldberg again in a WWE ring? In the past, probably not, but with this development, the chances might have increased. I just hope that WWE doesn't screw him over again.
