Last week we told you that Rey Mysterio would be one of two pre-order incentives for WWE 2k19. Now we know that the second will be Ronda Rousey.
Carrying on the name of the late, great WWF superstar Rowdy Roddy Piper, Ronda Rousey has made a splash in the world of pro-wrestling. And now she’s ready to make her video game debut. An in-game Rousey will be the second pre-order bonus for 2K Games’ WWE 2k19.
“As a WWE Superstar, having support from the Piper family means everything to me,” said Ronda Rousey. “It’s an honor to be part of WWE 2K19 and have my name mentioned alongside so many important Superstars in WWE history, including Rey Mysterio, Kurt Angle®, Ultimate Warrior®, Sting™ and Goldberg™.”
“Anybody can call themselves ‘Rowdy’, but it takes a special, talented and dedicated individual to live up to the ‘Rowdy’ name,” said Colt Toombs, son of “Rowdy” Roddy Piper. “My dad saw it in Ronda, and so do we. She is truly ‘Rowdy to the core,’ and that mindset really comes through in the trailer for WWE 2K19.”
Set for release on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC, WWE 2k19 rings the opening bell on October 9th.
