8 Moments That Led Seth Rollins To WWE 2K18 Cover Star

The Architect Builds On Impressive Legacy With Latest Honor.


Seth Rollins is the cover athlete for WWE 2K18, as he revealed on his official Twitter account Monday.

The revelation is the culmination of a five-year main roster career that saw The Architect ascend to the top of the industry, a two-time WWE champion and the company's resident Kingslayer.

During that time, he won championships, found himself on opposite ends of betrayal, suffered the bitter disappointment of an ill-timed injury and came back better than ever. Having vanquished Triple H at WrestleMania and stolen the show at Extreme Rules, Rollins is headed toward another quality year in 2017.

Now the face of this year's eagerly anticipated WWE video game offering, he seeks to take the promotion of the 2K franchise out of the hands of Superstars and personalities whose prime was two decades ago and put it back in the hands of today's promising young stars, as seen in the teaser trailer for the production.

Given the legacy he has written for himself courtesy of these eight unforgettable moments, there is no better choice to do just that.
