2K today announced that Olympic medalist, feature film actress, UFC Hall of Famer and current WWE Superstar, “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey, will make her WWE console video game debut in WWE 2K19, the forthcoming release in the flagship WWE video game franchise. The “Baddest Woman on the Planet” – who put the WWE Universe on notice with a surprise Royal Rumble 2018 appearance, blockbuster WrestleMania 34 debut match and continued explosive presence – will appear in WWE 2K19 as a playable character wearing her signature ring gear inspired by “Rowdy” Roddy Piper. In addition, 2K’s global marketing campaign trailer for the announcement, which debuted during last night’s Monday Night Raw broadcast, further celebrates Ronda’s landmark WWE arrival and incredible bond shared with the late WWE Hall of Famer through inclusion of Piper’s verbal praise from her Piper’s Pit podcast appearance in 2015.

“As a WWE Superstar, having support from the Piper family means everything to me. 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.” – Ronda Rousey

“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.”

Rousey, alongside former WWE Champion Rey Mysterio, will be available as bonus content for those who pre-order the game at participating retailers for the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X and Windows PC. WWE 2K19 is currently scheduled for worldwide release on October 9, 2018, with Early Access players receiving their copies and in-game bonuses beginning four days early on October 5, 2018.

“From an Olympic tatami to the UFC Octagon to the WWE ring, Ronda is a one-of-a-kind athlete and incredible ambassador for career and life empowerment,” said Chris Snyder, Vice President of Marketing at 2K. “Her discipline, determination and attitude toward accomplishing her goals and silencing her critics make her the perfect embodiment of WWE 2K19’s ‘Never Say Never’ global marketing campaign. We are thrilled to welcome Ronda to the WWE 2K family and can’t wait to see what’s in store for her in the years to come.”

Through the announcement of Ronda Rousey as the second of two pre-order playable characters, 2K updated details today surrounding WWE 2K19 premium product offerings and their scheduled release dates.
