Rollins confirmed the news to ESPN earlier today which was then backed up by a press release from 2K Games themselves. Rollins joined WWE in 2010 and has been a rebel without a cause ever since making waves within the wrestling circuit forging his own destructive path.

I am the future, and the future can’t be stopped.”
