WWE 2K15 - Full Roster and Gamescom Gameplay Revealed

By the time you read this, Summerslam will be over, and either John Cena or Brock Lesnar will be WWE champ. We will also all be a bit closer to the release of WWE 2K15. Over the weekend, WWE released the full initial roster list for the game, and to save you some clicking, I've included the entire list below (courtesy of WWE.com)

  • AJ Lee
  • Alberto Del Rio
  • Bad News Barrett
  • Batista
  • Big E
  • Big Show
  • Booker T
  • Bray Wyatt
  • Brie Bella
  • Brock Lesnar
  • Cameron
  • Cesaro
  • Chris Jericho
  • CM Punk
  • Cody Rhodes
  • Curtis Axel
  • Damien Sandow
  • Daniel Bryan
  • Darren Young
  • Dean Ambrose
  • Dolph Ziggler
  • Erick Rowan
  • Fandango
  • Goldust
  • Hulk Hogan
  • Jack Swagger
  • Jey Uso
  • Jimmy Uso
  • John Cena
  • Justin Gabriel
  • Kane
  • Kevin Nash
  • Kofi Kingston
  • Luke Harper
  • Mark Henry
  • Naomi
  • Natalya
  • Nikki Bella
  • R-Truth
  • Randy Orton
  • Rey Mysterio
  • Ric Flair
  • Rob Van Dam
  • Roman Reigns
  • Ryback
  • Santino Marella
  • Seth Rollins
  • Shawn Michaels
  • Sheamus
  • “Stone Cold” Steve Austin
  • Sting
  • Summer Rae
  • Tamina
  • The Miz
  • The Rock
  • The Undertaker
  • Titus O'Neil
  • Triple H
  • Tyson Kidd
  • Xavier Woods

It's a pretty comprehensive list. While it includes pretty much all the usual suspects, there are a few noteworthy exceptions, Paige and Alexander Rusev being the most noticeable. They have both had a great deal of storyline time this year, so it is odd that wrestlers like Summer Rae, Titus O'Neil, The Miz, and Darren Young, all wrestlers who have had spotty TV time at best (Miz has been more prominent, but just over the last month or so), were given those spots instead.

Paige better eventually be in this game. Seriously, she is the Queen!

Regardless of who is actually wrestling, 2K has been very sparing with actual gameplay footage of 2K15. Thanks to Youtuber Mario Fonseca, we finally get a real glimpse of the game in action, and even from afar it looks like a huge step forward for the series. From the increasingly lifelike character models to the new grapple and holds mechanic (which you can see in the video), it seems 2K really made strides in this edition of the series. While we are waiting for 2K15 to drop, is there something else you are hoping to see implemented into 2K15? Let us know in the comments!
