WWE 2K18 Roster Reveal
Friday, August 18, 2017
We finally have some news as it pertains to the WWE 2K18 roster. 47 superstars have been revealed so far for the game. The list of the 47 superstars includes Bray Wyatt, Dolph Ziggler, Sami Zayn, Dean Ambrose, Baron Corbin, Kalisto, Akira Tozawa, Sin Cara, Hideo Itami, Eric Young, Jinder Mahal, and obviously more.
The list includes seven superstars that have never been in a WWE game. Akira Tozawa and Eric Young who are mentioned above are part of that list of new superstars. The other four superstars are Buddy Roberts, Killian Dain, Alexander Wolfe, and Sawyer Fulton.
Some names that we did not see on the list who will definitely be in the game are John Cena, Kevin Owens, The Miz, Seth Rollins, Samoa Joe and Randy Orton. One name in particular that we didn't see on the list that stood out for me was the NXT Champion, Bobby Roode. Another name that might have been pulled could have been Austin Aries due to his release.
There will be another roster reveal in about a week or so. Hopefully, the likes of Bobby Roode and Nakamura are on that list. Included in the roster reveal we found out that Michael Cole, Corey Graves, and Byron Saxton will be on the commentary team.
One interesting name that was confirmed for the game was Paige. Paige hasn't been inside a WWE ring for over a year now but that isn't stopping the WWE from using her in their game. She is still under contract with the company and hopefully, she returns to the ring very soon.
Next week there will be another roster reveal hosted by Samoa Joe. Maybe Joe will be Universal Champion by then?? That remains to be seen.
