The lights are on
The Rock didn't have the greatest night of his life yesterday, losing the WWE title from challenger John Cena at Wrestlemania. That doesn't mean fans have seen the last of the grappler/action hero. He'll be gracing the cover of 2K Games' upcoming WWE 2K14, for one thing.
Stephanie McMahon, the WWE's executive vice president of creative, tweeted the news before last night's event. Even though the Rock wasn't able to pull out a victory (it wasn't in the script cards), he remains one of the most popular figures in professional wrestling. Putting him on the cover is a safe bet, but considering that WWE 2K14 marks the first time that 2K Games is publishing the Yukes-developed game since acquiring the rights from the now-defunct THQ, it's a smart one.

I figured something Wraaastlin related would be posted by Dan Ryckert
Time for him to save the world again.
First that I've heard that it was going to be called 2K14, though looking back at it now, I'm not surprised.
2k14 wow the best was the raw vs smackdown series. It smackdown is so lame so that ant work.
Poor rock, it was only right since he is likely leaving within a month slowly withupout sayin his good bye then comes back like hey what's up guys , yay it's the rock again.....now we stuck with cena babbling on the mic for 5 months
rather surprised Dan Ryckert didn't post this lol, I can vouch that The Rock is a popular figure, even though he's not that active in WWE anymore, as he is one of my favorites
....Really? The Rock is going to be on the cover of WWE 2K14? Why? His stint is pretty much done now. They did what was needed to get cena back with the wwe title...again....and the rock doesn't have anymore movies to plug. Why not some other names that are actually full time wrestlers in the WWE? Sheamus, Chris Jericho, Rey Mysterio, Ryback. That's just a few of the names they have right now that could do just fine on the front of the game. Or maybe put a snarling heel character on the front. I DONT KNOW. BUT WHY ROCK?!?! His era ended years ago. They need to quit trying to pull things out of the Attitude Era Magic Hat and work on what they have already there. Otherwise its going to go to hell faster than it already is due to their lack of effort and direction.
I was a bit flustered after last night. Ziggler should have cashed in his MitB contract. At least that would have made a good moment from a rather lackluster mania. Oh and Zeb Coulters reaction to Swagger losing was great.
It wasn't in the scri...cards. Hahaha
At least he can overcome his GI Joe appearance by being on another cover. ;-)
Another day, another WWE cover, big wup.
Surprised Dan wasn't covering this, ether way looks good.
WM 29 was a load of crap. Besides Brock/HHH and Taker/Pun, rest was lame. Main event was as horrid as expected. Damn you Cena.
Rock should've won!
