Winner: Seth Rollins
After the match: Bray Wyatt appears on the TitanTron and he tells Seth that last week he took a leap of faith. It seems you are under the impression that since mankind forgave your transgressions, you walk around with the filth of vanity like a suit of armor. You tell people to be like no one, yet you lead these ignorant people to a place of no return. If you believe in redemption you will give it to your true self. Bray says he will help Seth and save him. Bray says Seth you should be honored because you will be cleansed by the flame of a God. Be careful what you wish for because he is inside your mind. Bray says he is everywhere.
Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring. Seth says today was an awesome day. He says he is a guy who grew up playing video games and he loved the sports games. He says he has the honor to join the crew of cover athletes on video games because he will be on the cover of WWE 2K18. He says it almost didn’t happen. Seth says he was given an offer and he accepted it. Seth says he bought in and it was everything he could have asked for. He won championships and got enough money to fill his house with everything he needed. Seth says he could not look in the mirror because he burnt every bridge. However, you gave him a second chance. Seth says that allowed him to have a second chance. This cover is not just his cover, it is OUR cover.
The tag line for the game is ‘Be Like No One’. Seth says we have all made mistakes, but that does not have to define who we are today, tomorrow or in the future. We get to decide that. Seth wants to make a promise. Bray Wyatt interrupts and he tells the architect there you go again contradicting yourself. You talk about how you have grown as an individual, but out of the other side of your mouth, all you can talk about are your material possessions. You talk about being your own man, but you shill this corporate banner. Bray says he can feel the struggle in your soul. You are still conforming. Just when you do it now, you are doing what these people want you to do.
You can wear the clothes of a good honest man, but deep down you are not that man. Seth tells Bray he is not that man . . . he is THE MAN. He has been around some of the most egotistical men in the business, but you have taken it to a different level. Life does not work that way. Seth says he has had a few crazy years. Those people who know him know he was more excited to stand in this ring face to face and toe to toe with an alleged God. Maybe in your world, you are a god, but Seth says in his world, Bray is a coward. Bray says he warned Seth. Anyone who takes his name in vain will be punished. He has warned Seth and now it is time to make a sacrifice. Bray says he’s here. Seth with a cross body off the turnbuckles while Bray blows out his lamp and the lights come up.
2K will crown The Kingslayer as the face of its flagship WWE video game franchise. Seth Rollins was revealed as the cover Superstar for WWE 2K18 and officially confirmed the honor today during a segment on ESPN’s “SportsCenter.” “The Kingslayer will be gracing the cover of this year’s WWE 2K18 video game,” Rollins said to ESPN anchor Randy Scott.
Rollins, a two-time WWE Champion who currently competes on Raw, eagerly accepted his place in the exclusive fraternity of legendary Superstars who have appeared on WWE video game covers.
“Following in the footsteps of other WWE 2K cover Superstars — Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, John Cena, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and Brock Lesnar — I now carry the torch and proudly represent a new generation of WWE Superstars,” Rollins said in a press release. In addition to naming Rollins as the WWE 2K18 cover Superstar, 2K unveiled details on three different editions of its latest WWE video game.
– The WWE 2K18 Standard Edition, which includes a physical or digital copy of WWE 2K18 as well as a pre-order bonus.
– The WWE 2K18 Deluxe Edition, which includes all the Standard Edition benefits plus access to the WWE 2K18 Season Pass, bonus digital content and early access to the game four days prior to release.
– The WWE 2K18 Collector’s Edition, which includes all the Deluxe Edition benefits except the option of a digital download. However, players who pick up the Collector’s Edition will receive exclusive physical WWE collectibles. 2K will announce more information about these editions and bonus features this summer.
Monday’s major announcement by 2K also confirms that Rollins will be the first Superstar to join the WWE 2K18 roster of playable characters. Additional playable characters will be announced later in 2017.
Bray makes his way to the ring. Bray says those who deny him will be judged. Those who sit in pathetic apathy will suffer their guilt. Those who dare blaspheme his name will be punished. Just like Seth Rollins. He has it all figured out. He has all the answers. Seth lives in a glass house with the blueprints of the architect blocking out the sun. It only took one dose of his truth to bring that house down. Now Seth will be picking out shards of glass from his soul for eternity due to his transgression. Due to Seth’s ignorance and dependence on humanity will set the way that you will live by. If you take his name in vain, you will fall. If you take his name in vain . . .
Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring. Seth says he has to clarify something so they are on the same page. Bray cost him his match last week because he called Bray a couple of names? He can get under Bray’s skin for that? Calling him a wannabe martyr and a false prophet, that was the truth. By calling him out, it forces Bray into the light. Bray prefers to hide in the shadows and attack when necessary. Seth says that makes Bray a coward. Seth dares Bray to prove him wrong. Bray tells Seth his pride will betray him. You are oozing arrogance all over the place. When you look at your reflection in the mirror, you see the man. Bray says he sees a man who is beneath him. You do not want this fight because his power is more than you can fathom. You have found the will to slay a king. The lights go out and go back on. Seth is alone in the ring. The lights go out and come back on and Bray is back on the TitanTron. Bray tells Seth to face his fear and RUN.
