Ronda Rousey Confirmed as WWE 2K19 Preorder Bonus

July 10, 2018Written by Lucas White

The cat was already out of the bag thanks to details of a 2K Games commercial shoot getting out in the wild, but here it is. That commercial is now live, and Ronda Rousey is confirmed as the second preorder bonus for WWE 2K19, following of course Rey Mysterio.

This is, obviously, the WWE video game debut of “The Baddest Woman on the Planet,” who only joined WWE early this year after a Hall of Fame-worthy career in the UFC. This is not her video game debut, as she has made previous appearances in EA Sports’ UFC series. Rousey’s appearance, or “ring gear” in the game is inspired by the late WWE superstar “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, as it is in regular WWE programming. The two had an established friendship before his passing, and the new commercial from 2K Games advertising WWE 2K19 includes audio from Rousey’s appearance on the “Piper’s Pit” podcast.

While Ronda Rousey and Rey Mysterio are regular preorder bonuses, a Deluxe Edition  of WWE 2K19 will also be available, which includes further rewards, per a release from Take-Two:
