Can you smell what the WWE 2K16 leak is cooking?

WWE 2K16 hasn’t revealed the full roster yet, but they’re combining old and new in a fun way. Thanks to a new leak, five more wrestlers entertainers have been revealed and some of them are sure to be fan favorites. I definitely feel my nostalgia bones tingling.

Picked up by IBT it seems that GameStop Italy has leaked names of some wrestlers who weren’t previously announced. The leak released the names of Alexa Bliss, Andre the Giant, The Rock, Triple H and Hulk Hogan, rounding out the roster as we know it thus far to:

  • Bad News Barrett
  • Daniel Bryan
  • Dean Ambrose
  • Finn Balor
  • Paige
  • Hulk Hogan
  • Andre The Giant
  • The Rock
  • Triple H
  • Eva Marie
  • Alexa Bliss

WWE 2K16 is promising the largest roster in WWE 2K history with over 120 unique playable characters. Apparently, that means it’s taking a lot of hard work:

A little insight on what it takes to scan the largest roster ever!

I love the various match ups that I can create. I really hope the Big Show is back in this one – I’d love to see a match up between Andre the Giant and The Big Show. That’s what these games are all about, right? Creating rivalries and match ups between characters who would never otherwise be able to fight each other. Now I just need to pester the guys at 2K to remind them that I need an “RKO the world” option.

    Just read old Hulk Hogan got booted off the WWE. All his merch, any reference to him, his hall of fame entry. So maybe even this game? Apparently he said some naughty racist thingies…

      Yip, apparently said the n-word on a podcast back in 2012. Honestly, not huge considering the chairman Vince McMahon said the n-word ON SCREEN back at Survivor Series 2005. Fair enough, that was not the PG Era, but it was still VERY controversial.

        The header reminded me of all the Cage photoshop lulz on the net.

    Just a legit my career please, 2K15 was really a great disappointment in that regard, don’t care that much for the roster.

    If Alexa Bliss is in the game, then the NXT roster sounds like it’s going to be deep. I’m really excited for WWE 2K16 because for 2K, 2K14 was picking up THQ scraps, 2K15 was their first play-around and now 2K16 is their first true game.
