Austin was named Monday as the cover superstar – and he will step inside the virtual ring as a playable character – for the WWE 2K16 videogame that is set for an Oct. 27 release.
Austin strikes a classic pose for the cover, with his fists clenched and arms raised as glass shards fly around him.
Austin, the foul-mouthed anti-hero who ushered in WWE’s “Attitude Era,” earned the cover nod over some of today’s popular stars despite last wrestling in 2003.
“I think it speaks to the impact my career had on the business,” Austin said. “It was a testament to the times when the business was as hot as it’s ever been. I got a chance to lead that charge and all these years later, it comes back around.”
