Ultimate Warrior returns to the ring as WWE 2K14 pre-order bonus
Ultimate Warrior made his WWE debut in 1987. I was born in '88, so I apologize if I'm not too familiar with this latest WWE 2K14 offering. But I'm all for free goodies, and 2K Games is including this self-professed "Founding Father of Life Intensity" as a free bonus for pre-ordering the game on Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3.
In the trailer that was released alongside this announcement, the Ultimate Warrior looks a little grayer and older, but you gotta love his intensity.
“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 UWarrior. “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 WWE 2K14, Ultimate Warrior’s creed, ‘Always Believe,’ lives on.”
Like I said, I'm not too familiar with him, but here's a nice little recap of his crowning WWE achievement:
Ultimate Warrior garnered worldwide attention and became a pop-culture phenomenon for his iconic music and ring entrance, zealous personality, boundless energy and dominant in-ring prowess. Though he faced many rivals throughout his career, including Honky Tonk Man, “Ravishing” Rick Rude, Sgt. Slaughter, “Macho Man” Randy Savage and Undertaker, perhaps his most celebrated match was against Hulk Hogan in “The Ultimate Challenge” at WrestleMania® VI on April 1, 1990. Warrior defeated Hogan that day to unify the WWE Championship and Intercontinental Championship, becoming the first WWE Superstar ever to hold both titles simultaneously.
WWE 2K14 is due out on October 29, 2013 for Xbox 360 and PS3. Those who pre-order will receive this in-game wrestler for no extra cost on launch day.
