WWE 2K19

Hot Rod “Rowdy” Roddy Piper is coming to WWE 2K19!

Announced via WWE 2K19‘s Twitter, Hot Rod, Rowdy Roddy Piper is going to be a playable character in this year’s WWE 2K game. There is a caveat to getting him. Only those who pre-order the “Wooooooo!” and Deluxe editions of the game will have access to Piper.

This should excite fans of 80s wrestling because Piper hasn’t been in a WWE 2K game in what seems like ages. He was included in a legends pack for WWE 2K16, but his omission in WWE 2K17 and WWE 2K18 were surprising. Roddy Piper passed away in 2015 due to heart complications.
