Before “SummerSlam” on Sunday, Aug. 17, WWE announced the wrestlers included in their next video game, “WWE 2K15.” In a panel discussion hosted by “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, the roster was revealed, while panelists Roman Reigns, Hulk Hogan, John Cena, Cesaro, Sheamus and Sting chimed in with their thoughts.
The true star of the show was Sting, who is a new addition to the WWE family. He has had a legendary career, but not a single WWE match to his credit. It should come as a surprise to no one that the fans want to see him in a WWE ring, but they aren’t the only ones.
Sting was clear in his intentions. He wants to have at least one more match, and he wants to do it on WWE programming. In particular, he wants to face The Undertaker at “Wrestlemania.” It’s a dream match fans have wanted for years, and it’s more possible than ever with Sting in WWE. Still, he won’t tip his hand just yet regarding whether those in charge want that same match, or even if The Undertaker will wrestle again after sustaining a concussion at “Wrestlemania 30.”
As for the roster, you can see the preliminary list below. The full roster, which will include downloadable characters, has yet to be released.
Hollywood Hulk Hogan
Rob Van Dam
Alberto Del Rio
Bad News Barrett
“WWE 2K15” is in stores Oct. 28.
