Rey Mysterio is WWE 2k19’s first pre-order bonus grappler

The Lucha Libre legend, and former WWE champion Rey Mysterio is the first of the pre-order bonus wrestlers for 2K Games’ WWE 2k19.

619!

“Since my WWE debut in 2002, ‘Never Say Never’ – the WWE 2K19 campaign theme – has been a big part of my career,” said Mysterio. “It is an honor to join the likes of Kurt Angle, Goldberg, Sting, Ultimate Warrior and Arnold Schwarzenegger as one of two WWE 2K19 pre-order playable characters.”

“As one of the most popular WWE Superstars of all time, as well as one of the most frequently requested in the WWE 2K franchise, we’re thrilled to celebrate Rey Mysterio’s career by bringing him back as part of the WWE 2K19 pre-order offer,” said Chris Snyder, Vice President of Marketing at 2K. “His embodiment of ‘Never Say Never’ throughout his career also makes him an incredible fit to share his story as part of our global marketing campaign.”

Hard to believe that Mysterio debuted all the way back in 02. It certainly seems as though he’s still a pretty popular force in the world of pro wrestling. There are reasons for that of course, chiefly being his exciting in-ring style, and overall speed. I think it’s fair to say that he’s made a lasting impression on wrestling fans. He was a flat-out huge part of Raw and the Federation in general at the turn of the millennium.

So it’s more than a little understandable that he’s been selected to be one of the two pre-order bonus wrestlers for WWE 2k19. Rey will be cast in his 2018 attire, that he appeared in for the Royal Rumble. To get him (and that mystery second character), you’ll only need to pre-order the game.

WWE 2k19 arrives on the Xbox One and PS4 on October the 19th. Watch for it to have both a Deluxe Edition, and Collector’s Edition, in addition tot he standard version.

Here’s what’s included in both:
