WWE & NXT Superstars Confirmed for WWE 2K19's DLC Expansion
Wednesday, September 19, 2018
It's getting to be that time of year again when WWE and 2K Games release the latest edition in the popular WWE 2K video game series. This year's game is called WWE 2K19, and it features current WWE Champion AJ Styles on the cover of the game, as well as a wide array of playable characters from the current roster in addition to names from the past. WWE 2K19 will also have Rey Mysterio and Ronda Rousey available as playable characters for fans who pre-order the video game in advance. A special showcase mode for SmackDown Superstar Daniel Bryan is also set to be included in the game this year, but 2K Games is still not finished making announcements for the upcoming game just yet.
On social media last night, the official Twitter account for the WWE 2K19 video game announced the roster members who will be available in this year's DLC pack. These extra characters include members of the NXT roster who will be appearing in a WWE video game for the very first time ever, as well as some names who will be returning to WWE's video game series for the first time in several years. The following WWE Superstars will be included in WWE 2K19 as DLC:
Ricochet - "The One and Only" will be arriving in a WWE video game for the first time ever in this year's game.
Hanson & Rowe - Known as The War Raiders in NXT, these potential NXT Tag Team Champions will also be debuting in the new game.
