This news comes shortly after it was revealed that WWE are treating Bryan’s current run as a “farewell tour”, something we covered yesterday.
The game mode is yet to be confirmed by WWE or 2K, but as mentioned, WrestleVotes have garnered a sense of reliability in their reports.
In regards to Bryan’s contract, he recently revealed in an interview with the Gorilla Position podcast that if he is to re-sign, he wants a lighter schedule in order to spend more time with wife Brie and daughter Birdie.
He expanded that he’d like a deal in which he would wrestle 50-100 matches per year, and added that the doctors who cleared him for in-ring competition a couple months ago advised that a lighter schedule would benefit his health.
Bryan will team with Kane at WWE Extreme Rules 2018 as Team Hell No challenge the Bludgeon Brothers for the WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championships.
