WWE 2K15 Roster Revealed, Career Mode Explained
Lace up your boots, queue the entrance music, douse yourself in water and head to the Gorilla Position backstage, because the entire roster for WWE 2K15 has been announced.
Wrestling News Source has unveiled the full roster of wrestlers, divas and legends that will be available in WWE 2K15. WWE originally announced this information during a press conference it held for IGN. At the press conference was Stone Cold Steve Austin, Roman Reigns, Cesaro, Sheamus, Hulk Hogan and Sting. Cesaro mentioned that the WWE's locker room was actually filmed by 2K using thousands of cameras from all angles where each wrestler did their entire repertoire of moves -- John Cena filmed his "Five Moves of Doom" in approximately three minutes and left (just kidding).
Here is the list of wrestlers who will be a part of WWE 2K15:
SUPERSTARS: Bray Wyatt, Roman Reigns, Chris Jericho, Dolph Ziggler, Fandango, Sheamus, Big Show, Cesaro, Damien Sandow, Brock Lesnar, CM Punk, Triple H, John Cena, Goldust, Dean Ambrose, Batista, Jey Uso, Jimmy Uso, Big E, Jack Swagger, Tyson Kidd, Darren Young, Rey Mysterio, Titus O'Neil, Seth Rollins, Kofi Kingston, R-Truth, Justin Gabriel, Randy Orton, Daniel Bryan, Xavier Woods, The Miz, Rob Van Dam, Erick Rowan, Luke Harper, The Undertaker, Alberto Del Rio, Bad News Barrett, Cody Rhodes, Curtis Axel, Kane, Mark Henry, Santino Marella, Ryback
DIVAS: AJ Lee, Nikki Bella, Brie Bella, Naomi, Cameron, Natalya, Summer Rae (no Paige?)
LEGENDS: Shawn Michaels, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Hulk Hogan, The Rock, Booker T, Kevin Nash, Ric Flair
PRE-ORDER EXCLUSIVE: Sting, Hollywood Hulk Hogan (available in the "Hulkamania" Collector's Edition)
We were surprised to see CM Punk still on the list. 2K15's Career Mode will let you take a new wrestler through the WWE Performance Center, then to NXT and the main roster. Since Kevin Nash's picture depicted him in his NWO garb, we expect recent Hall of Famer Scott Hall to be included as a legend as well. We really hope that NXT greats like Sami Zayn, Adrian Neville and newly-signed Kevin Steen are included.
Of course, there are wrestlers that will be available via paid DLC. Unfortunately, the outfits shown during this press conference were a bit outdated, so expect Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins to still be wearing their Shield gear. We don't think Cody Rhodes' Stardust character will be featured
WWE 2K15 will hit the ring on Oct. 28 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
