2K today announced Mike Rodriguez of Corona, Calif. as the North America winner, along with Alexis Zankowitch of Saint-Martin-le-Vinoux, France as the international winner, of the WWE® 2K14 video game cover artwork contest.  The winning entries, both featuring WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan, will appear exclusively inside all retail copies of the game, respective to each geographic region, when the video game hits shelves on October 29, 2013 for North America and November 1, 2013 internationally.

While WWE Superstar The Rock® will serve as the official cover Superstar, WWE 2K14 marks the first time in the franchise’s history that consumers were presented with the opportunity to create and submit their own designs.  The WWE Universe responded emphatically, with thousands of entries received by the contest deadline.

“We were blown away by not just the amount of contest entries received, but the overall creativity and quality of them as well,” said Chris Snyder, Senior Director of Marketing at 2K.  “Both entries really captured the style and tone of WWE 2K14, and we are pleased to feature Daniel Bryan and these designs as part of our final product at retail.”
