$1 Million on the Line in WWE 2K19 Million Dollar Challenge
2K recently announced details surrounding activity for the WWE 2K19 Million Dollar Challenge – the capstone event for WWE® 2K19, taking place during WrestleMania Week. Four finalists from around the world will compete – with support from WWE Superstar coaches Kofi Kingston and Big E of The New Day; Paige; Ember Moon and The Miz – for the opportunity to challenge WWE 2K19 cover Superstar AJ Styles to a one-on-one match in the video game with $1 million on the line.

Benson from Philadelphia, Pa.; David Hoey from Sydney, Australia and Roman Droßard from Pfalzfeld, Germany were selected from all global entries as the competition’s four finalists heading to WrestleMania.
