Powell's POV: Kurt Angle announced on Raw that there will be a multi-person match of some kind to determine who will be next to challenge Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Championship. WWE 2K19 releases on October 9 for PS4, Xbox One and PC, which would mean we can expect the finals either during Survivor Series in November or the Royal Rumble at the end of January.
Styles, the two-time WWE Champion who successfully retained his title at Money in the Bank 2018, attended 2K's press conference. He learned of the cover role 2-3 weeks ago and says it's a real honor to be on the cover because he's a gamer. Check back for more details as they emerge. If they can beat Styles in a match, they win the million dollars. AJ talked about how he wants the gamers to see him as one of them and how being on the cover of the WWE video game has been a goal of his.
We saw a side of AJ Styles that we might have never seen before.
In addition to its cover Superstar selection, 2K introduced the WWE 2K19 Million Dollar Challenge. The prize? One million dollars.
2K also announced the WWE 2K19 Million Dollar Challenge, a competition which gives players the opportunity to win a cool million bucks by beating Styles himself at the game.
