Report: Roman Reigns was originally supposed to be on the cover of WWE 2K16, not Steve Austin

While Steve Austin was announced as the cover star for WWE 2K16, 2K Games didn’t have him exactly in mind as their first choice.

Roman Reigns was supposed to be on the cover of the game, but in the end, the feeling was Austin would mean more when it comes to promotion of such a major project.

During the launch party for the game back on August 20th in New York, Steve Austin gave a speech about Vince McMahon calling him up and asking him to be on the cover of next year’s game.

Austin has and will be heavily involved in the promotion of the game.
