The Texas Rattlesnake will be the cover athlete for WWE 2K16. What? Stone Cold Steve Austin was named the cover superstar for this year’s wresting game. What? WWE 2K16 is set to release for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on October 27th. What?

In the press release that accompanied the announcement Stone Cold Steve Austin said:

“I’ve had the privilege of working with 2K to support the WWE 2K franchise, and now I’m absolutely honored to serve as the WWE 2K16 cover Superstar. No disrespect to the previous and extremely deserving WWE 2K cover Superstars – Dwayne ‘The Rock®’ Johnson and John Cena® – but it’s about time the franchise raised some hell with yours truly on the cover. I look forward to injecting a dose of ‘Texas Rattlesnake’ into this year’s game and overall campaign.”

There were no further details on what his involvement in the game will be in terms of modes like the 2K Showcase. What? The announcement of a retired wrestler being named the cover superstar for a WWE game isn’t rare as The Rock was on the cover a couple years ago around the time of his return. What? So maybe the recent tease of a Stone Cold return at Wrestlemania 32 have some weight to them, only time will tell. What?
