Gaming consoles across the WWE Universe are about to become a lot more “Rowdy.”
Ronda Rousey will officially make her WWE video game debut this fall as a Pre-Order Bonus character for WWE 2K19. 2K first announced Rousey’s appearance with an official trailer that aired last night during Raw.
She joins Rey Mysterio as a playable character being offered as part of the WWE 2K19 Pre-Order Bonus. To gain access to both Superstars, players must pre-order a copy of WWE 2K19 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One or Windows PC at a participating retailer.
Rousey’s playable character will appear in WWE ring gear inspired by the outfit she debuted at WrestleMania 34 in tribute to WWE Hall of Famer “Rowdy” Roddy Piper.
The association between Rousey and Piper in WWE 2K19 does not stop at her ring gear, either. A 2015 podcast encounter between the two Superstars figures prominently in the trailer released by 2K, and was echoed in comments made by The Baddest Woman on the Planet in a press release.
“As a WWE Superstar, having support from the Piper family means everything to me,” she said. “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.”
WWE 2K19 is not yet rated by the ESRB and is scheduled for worldwide release on Tuesday, Oct. 9.
