During the NXT TakeOver Pre-Show at Barclays Center, consumer finalist Stephan T. Benson of Philadelphia defeated WWE 2K19 cover superstar AJ Styles to win the WWE 2K19 Million Dollar Challenge.
Benson’s journey began in October 2018 with the launch of WWE 2K19 and the Million Dollar Tower, a difficult gauntlet challenge designed to put players to the ultimate test. After toppling the tower and submitting a video describing how he would be the one to beat AJ Styles, Benson was selected to compete based on his talent in-game and charisma on the mic.
Benson’s next challenge took place earlier today at WrestleMania Axxess where, accompanied by WWE Superstar coach The Miz, he fought his way through a grueling semifinal bracket against global competition to prove he had what it took to face “The Phenomenal One” head-to-head.
“I’m a freakin’ millionaire! WWE 2K made this amazing for me. This is the best weekend of my life,” said Benson. “I thank AJ Styles, Xavier Woods, Corey Graves and everyone that was a part of this. Now my life has changed and my dream has come true.”
