Rousey will be making her WWE video game debut this year, while Mysterio makes his first WWE video game appearance since WWE 2K15.

“As a WWE superstar, having support from the Piper family means everything to me,” Rousey said in a press release. “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.”

Chris Snyder, vice president of marketing at 2K, added: “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. 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.”

Nia Jax shockingly named Ronda Rousey as her next challenger for the Raw Women’s Championship this morning at the NBCUniversal Upfront in New York City’s Radio City Music Hall.

WWE 2K18 will be released for the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One on Oct. 9. The game will also be available four days early for players who purchase the WWE 2K19 Deluxe Edition and WWE 2K19 Collector’s Edition for the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One.
