Braun Strowman will feature as FrankenStrowman in the Bump in the Night content from the Originals pack of the upcoming WWE 2k20 game.
WWE 2K20 Originals: Bump in the Night’s centerpiece is the debut playable version of “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt, who taunted the WWE Universe for months before his in-ring debut at SummerSlam this past Sunday.
This alternative horror realm will also feature “Demon King” Finn Bálor, “The Swampfather” Bray Wyatt, “Wicked” Aleister Black, “Unleashed Apex Predator” Randy Orton and “Fed-Up” Sheamus along with “Twisted” Nikki Cross battling it out in the Wyatt Swamp and Cemetery Brawl arenas.
For Strowman, it’s the stuff of dreams.
“Any of this stuff is just mind-blowing to me,”he said. “For a small-town kid like I am to see myself come to life in a video game especially in the 2K20 feature as one of the exclusive new characters is just a really humbling experience. To see how far I have come in such a short space of time and how the fans have got behind me – it’s really awesome.
“I am living a fairytale. Every day I wake up and I have to pinch myself to make sure it’s reality. Being a WWE superstar and everything that comes along with it is unbelievable and I am very privileged to be featured as a special in the new video game.”
Not only is he a huge part of this new feature, but Strowman also features heavily in the recently released commercial which see him alongside a host of WWE legends, with cover star Becky Lynch breaking the proverbial glass ceiling to gatecrash their party.
“There is a little feature with me and Shawn Michaels interacting at the beginning of the commercial and then Becky comes down crashing through the ceiling,” explains Braun. “Right from the get-go they are making me feel very special and very important, featuring me alongside some of the top legends in the business and to be alongside them is awesome and inspiring.”
Having been out of the picture for some time, Strowman made a huge impact on RAW this week returning to save Seth Rollins, but the long-term goal for the big man is to take the title The Architect currently holds.
“Without a doubt [the aim] is getting back into the title picture. I was very impressed with Seth Rollins performance against Brock Lesnar at Summerslam, but I’m looking forward to getting back in the swing of things and chasing after that Universal championship.”
And, while there may be plans in place for the Monster, his choices of dream matches are pretty interesting – although the desire for the match to descend into a brawling chaos Is perhaps not a surprise.
“Andre the Giant has got to be the man on the bucket list of anyone I could wrestle,” Strowman said. “For anyone on the current roster, it’s Drew McIntyre. I believe if we tell the story right and they put the right match with us then we can sell out any arena in the world. It’s just two larger than life human beings going at it like bulls and there is just something special about that.
I’m a big fan of gimmick matches like Last Man Standing or Falls Count Anywhere because they just end up like the Wild West. You never know what’s going to happen. No rules, no holds barred, anything goes, let’s get after it.”
