The Nature Boy becomes the centerpiece of 2K Games’ WWE 2k19 Collector’s Edition. It’s set to be packed with plenty of stylin’, profilin’ content.
Is Ric Flair one of the greatest wrestlers of all time? That’s kind of an easy question to answer, as he surely is. A world champ many (many) times over, Flair has grappled for NWA, WCW, WWF, WWE, and probably a few more than I’m missing. He’s a legend in robes, and still a fan favorite, even years after his retirement.
And now he’s being honored by 2K with the WWE 2K19 Wooooo! Edition. Here’s what’s in the box:

In additino to all of the above, you’ll also get a little early jump on WWE 2k19 if you buy in for this edition. Pre-ordering the WWE 2K19 Wooooo! Edition (at participating retailers) means you’ll get to play 2k19 on Friday the 5th of October. That’s a four day head start over those who don’t pre-order, or do so for the standard edition. That version is set to arrive on the 9th.
