WWE 2K18 has one heck of a roster

It’s been a long time since I paid any attention to what goes on in the WWE or its related video games. At some point in the 90’s, I just lost interest. That’s not a slight on those who still love the brand and its shows, of course. The biggest name in sports entertainment, and its associated transmedia is unfathomably popular, and that’s for good reason.

The games are actually pretty good, so our own WWE nut Darryn keeps telling me. Since 2K took over the series they’ve been trying to give the game as much love as their NBA2K series, turning the game in to a sports RPG. There have been ups and down in the annualised series, with last year’s game not being a high point. Perhaps this year’s one will be the evolution the series needs.

What WWE 2K18 has is one heck of a roster. IGN has revealed the game’s first 47 wrestlers in a video featuring Renee Young, Corey Graves and Goldust – which includes current and classic wrestlers like Bret Hart, The British Bulldog, Diesel, The Bushwackers , Bam Bam Bigelow and I think I’ve run out of names I actually recognise.

The game will also feature John Cena, Kurt Angle and cover boy Seth Rollins.

Here’s the video, and the wrestlers revealed so far

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
