WWE 2K15 Trailer: The Rock, Sting, Lesnar, Hogan and Wyatts Revealed
Watch Cesaro swing, Hogan Hulk-out and Roman Reigns ravage in this new trailer for WWE 2K15.
The newest trailer for WWE 2K15 was seen on 'Monday Night Raw' last night, and it does the 50-year-old wrestling company justice. Despite how much WWE wants to put its emphasis on 'Entertainment' over 'Wrestling,' we're glad to see 2K15 is all about the squared-circle. This trailer's roster left us a bit surprised, especially with the lack of CM Punk, who quit the company earlier this year and rumored to have sued WWE for using his likeness and character in the game without his permission. Given that he was formally announced for the roster a month ago, we have a feeling he might have been pulled from the game.
Why put Rusev, a newcomer who was just brought in from NXT earlier this spring, in the trailer, but leave Dean Ambrose, Dolph Ziggler, Seth Rollins, Sheamus and every diva (besides the talentless Nikki Bella) out of it? Hopefully, Rollins and Ambrose's ring attire will be changed in accordance to their post-Shield looks. Since Cody Rhodes was seen in previous screenshots, and not his new "Stardust" persona, we have a feeling the designs of the roster will be based on how they were months ago when they were first developing each character for the game.
Some of these characters, such as Undertaker, The Rock, Triple H and Brock Lesnar, looked amazing, while Daniel Bryan, Bray Wyatt and the actual in-ring action could have been cleaned up a lot more. We really hope the NXT locker room gets added to the game. Guys like Sami Zayn, Adrian Neville and Hideo Itami all deserve to be included.
The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of WWE 2K15 will launch on Oct. 31, while the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game hit the ring on Nov. 18.
