Former WWE Raw and SmackDown Women’s Charlotte Flair was recently interviewed by the Wrap where she spoke about Becky Lynch and Roman Reigns being on the cover of WWE 2K20 together.
Flair made it known that fans shouldn’t complain that Lynch is sharing the cover with Reigns instead of being featured by herself. She thinks it sends a bigger message by noting that it shows that Lynch wants to take Reigns’ spot as the face of WWE.
“So, I look at it this way. If you watched the video game’s commercial, and Roman acknowledging her like ‘You’re the man,’ there’s no bigger acknowledgement in our company than coming from Roman Reigns. I want to be where Roman is right now, on [the marketing materials] for Fox (Sports). I want to be the face of the company.”
Flair pointed out how Lynch is standing in front of Reigns on the cover and that it’s not a slight that Lynch shares the cover.
“But Becky and Roman– right now, with Becky’s year and us main-eventing WrestleMania, which is the pinnacle of the Women’s Evolution, which is not just gonna stop there — it’s not a slight to Becky. It’s just Roman’s “The Guy,” or the man, and so is Becky. It’s a representation of saying, ‘OK we still put Becky on the cover, the first time ever (for a woman).’ I think it’s more kudos that– Roman is standing behind her. Roman Reigns is standing behind her. [He’s] the face of our company. That’s the big message to me.”
WWE 2K20 is currently scheduled for worldwide release on Tuesday, October 22, 2019 for the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and the Xbox One family of devices, including the Xbox One X and Windows PC.
