Who’s that jumping onto the game? While the cover spot on the WWE2K video games is a major coup for any wrestler, another big achievement is to be announced as special character available if someone pre-orders the game. Over the last few years a string of all time greats and Hall of Famers have been included in this spot and this year’s name is no exception. While he isn’t a current member of the WWE roster, he’s certainly a major name and someone who made a pretty high profile appearance earlier this year.
Maybe not a big guy, but a big name.
This was on Raw. You know what else was on Raw? All of this.
Opinion: I’m a pretty big Mysterio fan so this was a nice surprise. I don’t play the games, but it would nice to see Mysterio make one last run. Mysterio is 43 years old and has a long history of injuries, but I would be rather pleased to see him get one more run with the company, probably leading to a Hall of Fame induction. He’s a multiple time World Champion and it would be a big deal to see him get back into the top promotion in the world. Even if it’s just a short run, let’s see what he can still do and have him get some young stars over.
