Ric Flair is one of the most iconic professional wrestlers in history. Since he began his career in the 70’s, he not only set the bar for in-ring performance but also for cutting a good promo. He has also received tons of awards. Just with the WWE, he won the Slammy Award for his match in 2008 against Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania XXIV and is the only Superstar to get inducted twice in the WWE Hall of Fame. Once was for his individual career and the second was for his time with the Four Horsemen.

WWE 2K19 launches on October 9th for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. However, if you pre-order the Deluxe or Wooooo! Edition early, you’ll receive the game a few days early on October 5th. You can pre-order the Wooooo! Edition right now on the official WWE 2K website.
