We recently found out that WWE Superstar Seth Rollins is going to be the cover star on this year's WWE 2K18 video game. As time goes by, we are beginning to learn more and more about the new game. A bit of news regarding a very special pre-order bonus has been revealed at last. In the past, we've had former stars like Sting, Goldberg and The Ultimate Warrior revealed to be the pre-order bonus for the video games, and to keep the tradition going, we're going to be getting an individual who has not appeared in a WWE video game in quite some time. Raw General Manager Kurt Angle has revealed that he will be this year's pre-order bonus character.

In the past, the pre-order bonus in WWE's annual 2K games have lead to the superstar involved legitimately returning to the company for a final run. However, this year Kurt Angle already made his WWE return when he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame during Wrestlemania weekend. The night after the Orlando event from this year, Angle was announced as the brand new Raw GM, a position that he is still in this very day. WWE has recently begun a storyline with Angle and Raw announcer Corey Graves that could be leading to an eventual match with Triple H. This is if certain rumors regarding Angle's in-ring return turn out to be truthful.
While fans continue to speculate on when exactly Kurt Angle will wrestle for WWE again, you will be able to have Angle face off against any WWE Superstar that you wish this fall. Kurt Angle is a pro wrestling veteran with a decades-long career now. Players are certainly going to have plenty of memorable moments to relive, attires to unlock, and maneuvers available to practice some good ol' fashioned technical wrestling. Angle said on Twitter that a commercial for the pre-order would be airing during the July 10th edition of Raw. In the meantime, feel free to pre-order your copy of WWE 2K18 now to play as your favorite Olympic wrestling hero.
