2K announces Goldberg as Pre-Order Bonus for WWE2K17
2K announced last night on Monday Night RAW, the pre-order bonuses for WWE2K17. It was a surprise to many, but Goldberg was announced as the character you get for pre-ordering this year’s game. Not only do you just get Goldberg, you get two different versions of him, the WCW Goldberg with black tights and the WWE Goldberg with black and white shorts. Along with the character, you get two playable arenas, WCW Monday Nitro and Halloween Havoc. The game has an October 2016 release date and will be available for PS4, Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360. Here is the trailer.
What Does Having Goldberg as a Pre-Order Mean?
WWE 2K14 had the Ultimate Warrior as a pre-order bonus only for him to return to WWE TV and was inducted into the hall of fame that year before his sudden passing. Sting was a pre-order bonus in WWE 2K15 as he made his long-awaited debut to the WWE after leaving WCW once it shut down to have success in TNA. While WWE 2K16 didn’t have a former star as the pre-order bonus, 2K17 gets back on track with former wrestlers. Goldberg was in 2K14, but he wasn’t a pre-order bonus and he wasn’t advertising the game at all. Now he is the front face for the game (besides the cover athlete who hasn’t been announced yet). Does this mean Goldberg will return to the WWE soon? Chances are looking high, as you can see in the trailer when Goldberg gets in the back of the cop car, you can see a reflection of a sign saying “Suplex City” as the car drives off. Does this mean we will see Lesner vs Goldberg 2? Having Goldberg just in the trailer was good enough, but now teasing a possible match with Brock Lesner after their first match was a huge flop is big for the company. WWE having Goldberg back would be new and interesting to see if they go with him against Lesner or someone else and if he would have a run at the title just one more time.
