With less than four months from release, I anticipate a steady stream of information to come out over the next couple of months. 

 

If the trailer is any indication of who is in, I'm going to guess there may be some specially made storyline involving legends. 

 

I'm hoping this year's roster is also loaded with a lot of new talent from NXT, 205 Live and from the UK tournament, notably Pete Dunne and Tyler Bate. They better bring back Steven Regal as a playable character as well (Finlay too!).

i doubt anyone from the UK tournament will be in.

More than likely, you are probably right, though the two aforementioned names would be great additions to a "Future Stars" pack, alongside Aleister Black, Drew McIntyre, Kassius Ohno and TM-61. All wishful thinking of course. Guessing Roderick Strong has been around long enough to be included as part of the main NXT roster. Same goes for Almas, The Authors of Pain, Gargano, Ciampa and SAnitY. 

 

The main roster should get a lot of new additions as well with Kurt Angle as the likely pre-order bonus, The Hardy Boyz, Jinder Mahal, Maryse, and everyone's favorite superstars, Elias Samson and James Ellsworth.

well they did say deepest roster ever, but i don't want ellsworth anywhere near this damn game.  I'd rather have michael cole as a playable player

Surely they can't leave out the future Smackdown Women's champion.

Don't worry, I'm sure James Ellsworth makes it in somehow. Besides, the man has 3 wins over AJ Styles. That has to count for something.

I guess they need to find a way to get at least $250 plus money for tax to get a PS4 or XBO

I'd say this counts as Rusev confirming himself in the game lol

If you had saved the £50 from buying the last 4 last gen versions, you'd have enough for a current gen system. The current gen systems came out four years ago, there's no excuse for not having upgraded already if you play games every/most days by now.

It'd probably be based around Mania time and he's been injured forever, so I'd say probably.

With Pete Dunne and Tyler Bate still selling their own new merch, I don't know if they'll be in 2K. Unless they've signed merch contracts as recently as the past few days(I know new British Strong Style shirts have been selling at UK and PROGRESS shows), they probably won't be in. It's what kept us from having Rhyno and DIY last year.

Spot on.

 

It's absolutely about time WWE games 'cut the apron strings' and moved on. We need 100% development time dedicated to this current generation of consoles. Has to happen eventually.

i think trailer was pretty good :)

but it was a lil bit waste of hype

cuz when they would have more information like

if you preorder you can play 4 days earlier and get this dlc

and the collectors edition you get this dlc 90 days before others and this stuff and card whatever

 

but the inpact and result of this trailer is yeah preorder now to play 4 days early

but to be honest 80 % of us fans didnt preorder before we exactly know whats inside the collectors editon

when we know what comes with it we choose regular pre(digital or disc) or collectors pre order

 

but its a pretty cool trailer ^^

They confirmed on Twitter that last gen is officially over. That can probably be added to here.
