Oh, it’s true … It’s damn true. After more than a decade, Kurt Angle officially returns to the WWE gaming ring as the pre-order bonus for WWE 2K18.

Just this year, Angle was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame for his legendary, long-spanning career. Before entering sports entertainment, he won a gold medal in freestyle wrestling at the 1996 Summer Olympic Games with a “broken freakin’ neck.”

Players who pre-order the game at participating retailers receive Angle’s WWE “American Hero” character, as well as his ECW “Wrestling Machine” character via digital download.

“I was thrilled to return to WWE earlier this year, be honored as a WWE Hall of Fame inductee and find a new home with the best in the business every Monday night as the Raw General Manager,” said Kurt Angle. “And now, I get to follow in the footsteps of many incredible names, like Bill Goldberg, Sting, Ultimate Warrior and Arnold Schwarzenegger, and be featured as the WWE 2K18 pre-order character.”

For more, be sure to watch Monday Night Raw on July 10 to see the premiere of the WWE 2K18 Kurt Angle pre-order bonus trailer.
