WWE 2K16 Adds 12 More Wrestlers to Its Roster
Yuke's and 2K just added 12 more wrestlers to Suplex City for WWE 2K16's roster, including Triple H, Kalisto, Emma and more.
Booker T, Colonel Mustafa, Emma, Eva Marie, General Adnan, Kalisto, Kane, Lord Steven Regal, Sin Cara, Summer Rae, Tamina and Triple H are all joining the roster of WWE 2K16 this week. These wrestlers join "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, Daniel Bryan, Dean Ambrose, Bad News Barrett (despite getting his gimmick change to King Barrett), Finn Balor (both the demon and regular versions) and Seth Rollins as confirmed characters. I'm glad to see Kalisto get some shine with his own entrance being released first in the provided video above, as he's an amazing wrestler (I've been a Samuray del Sol fan for years).
It's interesting to hear that Mustafa and Adnan are being added to the roster, as Mustafa was played by Mr. "Make You Humble" himself, the Iron Sheik. Mustafa and Adnan are remembered for their controversial storyline where Sgt. Slaughter became an Iraq supporter, leading to a big feud between Hulk Hogan and Slaughter at Wrestlemania VII. Due to recent events, it's going to be strange featuring Slaughter, Mustafa and Adnan in this manner without Hogan on the roster. I have a feeling we'll be seeing the more classic versions of Sheik and Sgt. Slaughter as well.
WWE 2K16 will debut on Oct. 27 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. Pre-ordering the game will unlock the Terminator on the roster, despite Arnie never being a wrestler.
