WWE 2K14 unveils The Rock as cover guy

Despite taking some occasional time off for movies, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has remained a central figure in the WWE universe. It seems only fitting that with the rebirth of the franchise under the 2K Sports umbrella that the former WWE champion becomes the cover boy for WWE 2K14.

"I am exceptionally grateful to be chosen for the cover of WWE 2K14 and serve as the first cover Superstar under 2K's leadership," said The Rock in a press release. "I want the cover of WWE 2K14 to electrify the people. I want the artwork to stand out and set a new standard for all WWE video games from 2K, both today and in the future."

2K Sports has released a new "Become Immortal" trailer showing off some notable confrontations between The Rock, John Cena and Ryback, as well as giving face time to other stars both past and present.

The game, developed by Yuke's, is scheduled to come out October 29 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Let's hope the game is a bit more memorable than The Rock's last film.
