Today 2K Games announced the WWE 2K17 cover athlete would be none other than The Beast Incarnate, Brock Lesnar. The game also received a release date of October 11 on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.

If you’re unfamiliar with the superstar, Brock Lesnar has quite the history. He’s been an NCAA wrestling champion, a UFC world heavyweight champion, IWGP champion, and WWE world champion. The man is clearly a monster, and has earned his spot as the WWE 2K17 cover athlete.

Speaking of Brock Lesnar, he’s actually got a pretty busy schedule these days. He’ll be fighting Mark Hunt at UFC 200, with WWE SummerSlam to follow on August 21.

Those who pre-order the game will unlock two playable characters along with two arenas. The playable characters will both appear in the form of different versions of Bill Goldberg, while WCW Monday Nitro and Halloween Havoc will serve as the arenas you can unlock by pre-ordering.
