This is the first time the masked legend has officially been in a WWE video game since 2K15, and it's being touted as quite the coup by 2K. Fans of the ex-ECW, WCW and (full-time) WWE star will be pleased to know they no longer have to settle for cheap imitations via Community Creations.
Further, the tweet teased that another "unannounced WWE Superstar" would be a pre-order bonus too. Some fans are guessing that Ronda Rousey will be revealed as the second bonus, but there's a chance WWE will consider her part of the regular roster and thus put her on-disc from the get-go.
Using Ronda's name value to entice fans into pre-ordering may be smart though. She's someone with more crossover appeal than even legends like Mysterio.
There's no news from 2K on when they'll announce the second pre-order bonus. Still, with AJ Styles on the cover and Rey Rey being used in such a special spot, it's nice to see the developers putting focus on names hardcore fans actually like.
