Man is this trailer stupid but amazing at the very same time. The WWE games have hit a pretty rough drought these last few years with uninspired and glitchy offerings with their annual releases its left many with a bad taste in their mouths. So imagine my surprise when I find myself writing about what is one of my favorite trailers of 2015 for pretty much, anything.
The trailer is almost a one to one scene with one of the coolest introductions to one of the greatest action heroes and action films ever made. It even has the waitress (played by WWE Wrestler Paige) give the same creepy glimpse at Arnie’s junk. Dean Ambrose, subbing in for hillbilly biker plays the role of the guy who Arnold cooks on a stove but sadly the trailer ends before we get to the action.
It’s such a clever trailer and preys on nostalgia and the accuracy of the scene impresses the hell out of me. All this to sell me on the pre-order DLC for a game I probably won’t buy. A for effort though.
You can pre-order WWE 2K16 and unlock the Terminator and his alternate Terminator 2 skin today for the games release on 10/27/2015.
