WWE Champion AJ Styles will reportedly be the cover star for 2K Sports’ upcoming WWE 2K19 video game.
According to Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet, the game will also feature Ronda Rousey as a pre-order bonus character. For last year’s game, Rousey’s WrestleMania 34 tag team partner, Kurt Angle, was the pre-order bonus.
Satin noted the news regarding Styles and Rousey was pieced together after it was learned that a commercial for WWE 2K19 was shot this week in Memphis, Tennessee.
Sources also say Rey Mysterio was on the set of the commercial. Mysterio shared a photo on Instagram on Wednesday with Jeff Hardy, which is definitely recent.
Mysterio hasn’t been part of the WWE roster since 2015, but he made a surprise appearance in the Men’s Royal Rumble Match in January and was part of the 50-Man Greatest Royal Rumble Match in Saudi Arabia in April.
Mysterio’s involvement suggests he may be nearing an official return to WWE, which supports a report last week by Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Live that Mysterio is in negotiations with organization officials.
A few other wrestlers were involved in the commercial, but not named.
The first details regarding WWE 2K19 will be announced this coming Monday at 8 AM PT. There will be a live press conference that will be streamed on Twitch, Facebook, YouTube, and wwe.2K.com.
