And that's initially as one of two pre-order bonus characters where she joins Rey Mysterio as part of the game's pre-order campaign. In addition to her being playable, the trailer for her inclusion, which you can check out after the jump, also highlights her podcast appearance on Piper's Pit with the late, great Roddy Piper.

It's definitely cool that she's a character for the game, but a bit odd that it's only as a pre-order bonus. There's a good chance this sort of stuff will become available to everyone sometime after release, but with her star power, you'd think she should be available to everyone, right out of the gate.

Here's the official lines:
“As a WWE Superstar, having support from the Piper family means everything to me,” said Ronda Rousey. “It’s an honour 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™.”

“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.”
