He'll be back: Arnold Schwarzenegger's Terminator revealed as pre-order bonus for WWE 2K16

Terminator: Genysys may have been a stateside bomb at the box office, but just hearing the music associated with Arnold Schwarzenegger's character from The Terminator or Terminator 2: Judgement Day will still make action movie and science fiction fans like me mark out.

So, if you're also a wrestling fan (and if you're reading this, that seems like a safe bet), this news will probably excite you. And the above commercial announcing the news will definitely make you smile.

Pre-ordering the newest WWE licensed video game from 2K, WWE 2K16, will give you access to a couple playable characters that fans won't be able to get anywhere else - versions of Arnold's T-800 from the first two movies.

Adding the WWE Hall of Famer in his most famous role is pretty cool in its own right, but the commercial recreating an iconic Terminator scene with WWE wrestlers is off the charts awesome.

First, I got excited just realizing Daniel Bryan was at the bar. By the time I spotted Finn Bálor smirking about the beating he thinks Dean Ambrose is going to give Arnie, I was on the floor and had to re-start the whole thing.

WWE 2K16 comes out on October 27 in North America, and October 30 internationally - but get your order in now if you want to terminate some Superstars.
