As premiered on Raw last night, check out SURVIVOR, the WWE 2K18 trailer promoting decorated Olympian, WWE Hall of Famer and Raw General Manager, Kurt Angle, as the game’s pre-order focus.

SURVIVOR follows the aftermath of the cover reveal trailer – VANDAL – where WWE 2K18 cover Superstar Seth Rollins disrespects history by burning down the WWE Archives. The trailer introduces a hooded figure arriving to the still-smoking Archives, making his way through the rubble of destroyed WWE relics and discovering a pair of boots worn by Kurt Angle. The hooded figure lifts his head and is revealed as none other than Angle himself – and he’s pissed!

Kurt Angle couldn’t be taken down by Seth Rollins, and in turn, returns to the virtual ring for the first time in more than a decade – in WWE 2K18 – to defend his legacy and those of his fellow WWE Legends and Hall of Famers.
