The excitement surrounding the release of WWE 2K15 has only been amplified with the announcement Monday of the soundtrack for 2K Sports’ latest wrestling video game. 

John Cena announced on Twitter that he has curated the soundtrack for the game, which features two separate collaborations between the Doctor of Thuganomics and rapper Wiz Khalifa:

You can listen to the tracks here:

The 2K Sports franchise has always been on the cutting edge of soundtracks in their games, and allowing Cena to choose the music is an interesting concept. The video game developers have used athletes and musicians in the past for the NBA 2K series, but this is the first time a wrestler has chosen the WWE 2K soundtrack.

With songs from top-selling artists like Flo Rida, Big Smo, Mystery Skulls and others, the soundtrack is a noteworthy addition to WWE 2K15. For those looking to order the soundtrack before the game is released, it will be available on iTunes starting Oct. 21.

The game has been heavily anticipated since last year's release and figures to be an amazing entry into WWE's historic library of video games.

The collaboration between Cena and Wiz Khalifa could spawn a working relationship that involves an appearance on Raw. The WWE has shown an affinity with celebrities in the past, and a segment with both rappers would help sell the game and attract some mainstream media coverage.

WWE 2K15 will be released on Oct. 28 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in North America with the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions being released on Nov. 18 in North America.
