All evening, the WWE 2K Twitter account was teasing some news that would be dropping on tonight’s episode of Monday Night Raw from the TD Garden in Boston. That news just dropped, as right before the show’s main event a commercial aired showing Ronda Rousey preparing for a match. At the end of the commercial, it was confirmed that she will be playable in WWE 2K19 as the pre-order bonus. So if you want to play as the Baddest Woman on the Planet, be sure to pre-order the game before it arrives on October 9th.

The commercial depicts Ronda preparing for a match while the late, great “Rowdy” Roddy Piper speaks to her. Piper was a huge influence on Rousey’s career and the two were close years before Rousey ever decided to get involved with WWE. Rousey has adopted Piper’s nickname and signature look — a leather jacket and a plaid kilt/skirt.
WWE 2K19 releases October 9th on Xbox One and Playstation 4.
