WWE 2K17 has fans everywhere screaming, Who’s Next?!
WWE and 2K has informed that WCW and WWE alumni Bill Goldberg will grace the cover of WWE 2K17. Goldberg is best known for his 173-0 win streak from 1997 to 1998. For those who remember those matches, you’re probably coming to the reality that you’re getting up there in age.
“After 12 years away from the business, I’m incredibly honored to work with WWE and 2K while following in the footsteps of such greats as Ultimate Warrior, Sting and Arnold Schwarzenegger,” said Goldberg. “My son was a big part of this coming together, and I can’t wait for him to see his dad kicking ass in a WWE ring through the magic of video games. I encountered the likes of The Rock, Triple H, Brock Lesnar and Ric Flair during my WWE career, and now through WWE 2K17, I’ll be taking on the biggest and baddest Superstars of today – showing them once and for all that I am still ‘Da Man!”
During his WCW and WWE career, Goldberg held several notable championship titles, including the WCW World Heavyweight Championship, WWE World Heavyweight Championship, WCW United States Heavyweight Championship and WCW World Tag Team Championship alongside WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart. In 1998, as a result of his in-ring success and growing popularity, WCW began counting Goldberg’s consecutive wins on television. In addition, his popular catchphrase, “Who’s Next?” quickly caught on with fans and helped define his career.
