Booyaka! Rey Mysterio Becomes a WWE 2K19 Preorder Bonus Character

Booyaka! Rey Mysterio Becomes a WWE 2K19 Preorder Bonus Character

It hasn't happened in 4 years, but the Master of the 619 is back in a WWE video game!  More within...

We should've guessed it the moment Rey Mysterio (Jr.) entered into the 2018 Royal Rumble.  We should've seen this coming when he reappeared at the Greatest Royal Rumble in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.  Yet, it nevertheless was a surprise to us all when WWE revealed, during last night's Monday Night RAW, that Rey Mysterio would be joining the roster of WWE 2K19, as a Pre-order bonus!  Here's how they announced it...

The former World Heavyweight Champion joins other legends, Kurt Angle, Goldberg, Sting, Ultimate Warrior, and Arnold Schwarzenegger as pre-order bonus characters when WWE 2K19 releases on October 9, 2018.  Mysterio had this to say about the distinction.

“Since my WWE debut in 2002, ‘Never Say Never’ – the WWE 2K19 campaign theme – has been a big part of my career,” said Mysterio. “It is an honor to join the likes of Kurt Angle, Goldberg, Sting, Ultimate Warrior and Arnold Schwarzenegger as one of two WWE 2K19 pre-order playable characters.”

In addition to playing as Rey Mysterio, pre-ordering the Deluxe and Collector's Edition of WWE 2K19 includes the following:
