Ronda Rousey Confirmed for WWE 2K19 Video Game Pre-Order Bonus
Tuesday, July 10, 2018
Ronda Rousey dominated the world of MMA during her time in UFC, but from the moment that she left and joined WWE, it was clear that she was destined to compete in the ring. In Rousey's short time as a wrestler, she has managed to impress fans all over the world. Rousey's first official wrestling match took place at WrestleMania 34 in April when she teamed up with Raw General Manager Kurt Angle to defeat Stephanie McMahon and Triple H. Rousey has since continued to prove why she is called "The Baddest Woman on the Planet" by taking Nia Jax to the limit, and fans know that Rousey is just waiting to get her hands on Alexa Bliss and her Raw Women's Championship as soon as she possibly can.
Although nobody knows what is in store for the rest of Rousey's career in pro wrestling, fans will soon have the option to choose Rousey's next step in WWE. It was announced during last night's episode of Raw that Ronda Rousey will indeed be included as a playable character for the upcoming WWE 2K19 video game that will be released later this year. This will be the first time that Rousey has ever been included in a WWE video game, and she can only be unlocked when fans pre-order the game before its official release date. Although Rousey may not win the championship over the next few months, fans who pre-order WWE 2K19 can play as Rousey and have her absolutely crush the entire WWE women's division.
The announcement was accompanied by a trailer that sees Rousey preparing for a match that she has. Audio of late WWE Hall of Famer "Rowdy" Roddy Piper giving Rousey his blessing to pay homage to his nickname and look can also be heard in the background. WWE typically announces one or two unique bonus characters for their video games each year for fans who pre-order the latest games. The company already announced that Rey Mysterio would be joining the game as a pre-order bonus character, but fans who buy in advance will also get the chance to play as Rousey now. WWE 2K19 will be officially released in stores for the PC, Xbox One and Playstation 4 on October 9th.
