Ultimate Warrior Confirmed as WWE2K14 Pre-Order Bonus

Weighing in at 280 lbs. and hailing from Parts Unknown, The Ultimate Warrior will be playable in WWE2K14—if you pre-order the game.

This is a big deal for many wrestling fans. It marks the first time The Ultimate Warrior will appear in the yearly WWE franchise (having previously appeared only in WWE: Legends of Wrestlemania and WWE All-Stars). Many believe it was the strained relationship Warrior had with the WWE that resulted in his exclusion in the WWE games.

The Warrior celebrated the news with a visit to 2K Games, which you can see in the trailer embedded below.

Known for his phenomenal intensity in and around the ring, The Ultimate Warrior’s career peaked in 1990, when he knocked off Hulk Hogan at Wrestlemania VI in “The Ultimate Challenge,” during which both Hogan’s WWE Title and Warrior’s Intercontinental Title were on the line. This marked the first time one man held both belts, although it would be short-lived—Warrior would have to vacate the IC belt due to a stipulation at the time that no man could hold both titles. Not even an Ultimate one.

“Immortality is inspiration, pure and simple. An example to others that they, too, can do things larger than the life they are actually living, and Ultimate Warrior was the pure embodiment of this belief, in what has proven to be a very attention-getting and inspiring way,” said Warrior. “It was my good fortune to be his creator and performer, and I am humbled by all those fans who’ve not only kept his legacy alive, but deepened it over time. In WWE2K14, Ultimate Warrior’s creed, ‘Always Believe,’ lives on.”

You’ll get a chance to relive some of Warrior’s best matches if you “always believe” when WWE2K14 Gorilla Press Drops and then Running Splashes onto Xbox 360 and PS3 on October 29, 2013.
