Grab your bags and neck brace, because WWE 2K17 is headed to Suplex City.

2K Games has revealed the cover for the upcoming wrestling game will feature none other than the beast incarnate, Brock Lesnar.

“My career has been defined by dominating every opportunity presented to me,” said Brock Lesnar in a press release. “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.”

In typical WWE 2K fashion, a cover athlete reveal trailer has been uploaded. Watch the video below.

A pre-order bonus, which includes two playable versions of Goldberg and additional arenas, was announced early this month.

WWE 2K17 fights its way onto PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 on Oct. 11. There is currently no word on a PC version, but prior instalments have been released on the platform.

I don’t say it out loud often, but I am a huge wrestling nerd. Despite the games going downhill since the SmackDown vs. Raw series, I’m still semi-excited with each new instalment that gets released. Brock Lesnar had a monster year, but I’m surprised WWE didn’t go for their poster boy Roman Reigns as the cover Superstar.
