Former WWE Champion Rey Mysterio has been officially announced as the pre-order bonus character for WWE 2K19.
As seen on this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW in San Diego, CA at the Valley View Casino Center on the USA Network, a teaser trailer aired for the upcoming video game and it was revealed that Mysterio would be the bonus character.
Despite his recent appearances for the sports entertainment company this year, (competing in the Royal Rumble Match at the pay-per-view event in January and wrestling in the 50-Man Royal Rumble Match at the Greatest Royal Rumble PPV) Mysterio has yet to agree to terms for a new WWE contract but is expected to sign a new deal that would see him return to the WWE later this year.
Just last week, it was revealed by 2K Games that WWE Champion AJ Styles will be the cover star for the game.
WWE 2K19 will be released on October 9, 2018 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. As of this writing, 2K Games did not reveal a trailer for the game.
