Legendary WCW and WWE star Bill Goldberg arrives in WWE 2K17 to Spear and Jackhammer the competition! His unprecedented 173-0 win streak in WCW from 1997 to 1998 made an enormous impact with fans and spawned the catchphrase, “Who’s Next?” Goldberg collected top titles in both companies, including the WCW World Heavyweight Championship, WWE World Heavyweight Championship, WCW United States Heavyweight Championship and WCW World Tag Team Championship alongside WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart. His final appearance in a WWE ring was against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania XX more than 12 years ago.

“Who’s Next?” – 2K Announces Bill Goldberg as WWE® 2K17 Pre-Order Bonus

WCW® and WWE® legend, film and television personality and former NFL defensive tackle
featured as two playable characters in upcoming edition of flagship WWE video game franchise

2K today announced that legendary WCW® and WWE® star Bill Goldberg will make his virtual return in WWE® 2K17, the forthcoming release in the flagship WWE video game franchise. Best known for his unprecedented 173-0 singles competition win streak in WCW from 1997 to 1998, Goldberg will appear in WWE 2K17 through two playable characters representing his WCW and WWE personas. The playable characters, along with two playable arenas – WCW Monday Nitro and Halloween Havoc – will be available as bonus content for those who pre-order the game at participating retailers for the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment systems, as well as Xbox One and Xbox 360. WWE 2K17 is currently scheduled for worldwide release in October 2016.

“After 12 years away from the business, I’m incredibly honored to work with WWE and 2K while following in the footsteps of such greats as Ultimate Warrior, Sting and Arnold Schwarzenegger,” said Goldberg. “My son was a big part of this coming together, and I can’t wait for him to see his dad kicking *** in a WWE ring through the magic of video games. I encountered the likes of The Rock, Triple H, Brock Lesnar and Ric Flair during my WWE career, and now through WWE 2K17, I’ll be taking on the biggest and baddest Superstars of today – showing them once and for all that I am still ‘Da Man!’”

During his WCW and WWE career, Goldberg held several notable championships, including the WCW World Heavyweight Championship, WWE World Heavyweight Championship, WCW United States Heavyweight Championship and WCW World Tag Team Championship alongside WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart. In 1998, as a result of his in-ring success and growing popularity, WCW began counting Goldberg’s consecutive wins on television. In addition, his popular catchphrase, “Who’s Next?” quickly caught on with fans and in part defined his career.

Following his WWE retirement in 2004, Goldberg appeared in a number of films, including The Longest Yard and Universal Soldier: The Return. He also remained a national television fixture, joining the ninth season cast of the popular NBC reality series, The Celebrity Apprentice, and serving as host of Garage Mahal for two seasons on DIY Network. In addition to his film and television endeavors, Goldberg served as a color commentator for several mixed martial arts promotions and developed his own podcast, Who’s Next with Goldberg, via PodcastOne. Goldberg was inducted into the Jewish Sports Hall of Fame in 2010.

“Goldberg’s return to WWE action through two WWE 2K17 playable characters, along with the WCW Monday Nitro and Halloween Havoc arenas, collectively delivers a unique opportunity to experience one of WWE’s true living legends,” said Chris Snyder, Vice President of Marketing at 2K. “Fans can now relive many of their favorite Goldberg moments, as well as create brand new ones, as they decide ‘Who’s Next?’ in the virtual ring.”

Developed collaboratively by Yuke’s and Visual Concepts, a 2K studio, WWE 2K17 is not yet rated by the ESRB. WWE 2K17 is currently scheduled for worldwide release on the PS4™ and PS3™ systems, Xbox One and Xbox 360 in October 2016.

Who makes the cover? Has there been a standout in the past year? Or will they go the legend route?

With the upcoming brand split I'm guessing we will get two Wrestlers to grace the cover this year. One from Smackdown and one from Raw.

Wouldn't be surprised if it was Brock Lesnar. If so, we could possibly get a Ruthless Aggression showcase since he played a part in it.

The pre-order bonus will be Goldberg, they just played a commercial for it on Raw.

Roman and Cena on the cover I bet.

Any idea what the showcase will be this year?

Anyone catch the Suplex City sign in the reflection on the trailer?

Possible Lesnar is cover boy?

I'm more excited for the Nitro Arena than I am for Goldberg.

Wonder if that is hinting at something for next year's Wrestlemania, like a rematch that actually tops the first one? Game comes out in October, then it would add more hype to it if Brock is on the cover. Great way to tease it before they both show up during Wrestlemania Season to get the build ready.

Ughhhhhh, I hate when games have incredible pre order bonuses. I don't want to pre order the game but I want goldberg damnit!
Btw, isn't that cave also in GTA V?

You may be right. Sting appeared not too long after being a pre-order bonus. That would be pretty sweet.

Goldberg vs Brock at SummerSlam is a must IMO gotta separate it from not having it at another mania . But we will see
 
# 14 jaredsmith83 @ 05/31/16 08:26 AM
Warrior got a pre-order prior to his HOF induction. Sting was a pre-order before his official debut. I'm inclined to think that something will come of this more than it being a 2K exclusive contract. WWE has to approve what goes into their game anyway. This is exciting!
 
# 15 MoneyOvaHuds @ 05/31/16 09:44 AM
I wonder if we will get the Monday night wars this time around for story mode seeing it's two versions of Goldberg . I was happy he has his WCW theme in the commercial .


Next gen Goldberg entrance has me pumped

Dang it.

I was thinking about skipping 2k17 as I'm not an avid follower of wrestling anymore and enjoying 2k16 the little bit I play it. But then they have to bring out Goldberg. Now I have to get the game, because he fits into what I do with my universe mode.

You got me 2k...you got me.
 
# 17 tbennett54 @ 05/31/16 10:56 AM
Hopefully it will be a new Halloween Havoc, not from the last DLC

You and me both. I have 2K16 and I purchased all the DLC figuring this would be my wrestling game for a few years. I have all the wrestlers I want with a few exceptions like Hogan. But now I gotta get this thing.

Exactly how I am. I thought that I was set for a while, but now with Goldberg, I've got to pick this up. Goldberg and Hogan were two wrestlers that I really wanted for my Universe.

Eagerly waiting to hear/read who the other historical wrestlers will be.

How will you guys use Goldberg in universe mode? I think I'll use him part time unless I want him to have a title run.
