WWE 2K18 Roster Partially Revealed, Nearly 50 Wrestlers Confirmed

IGN has teamed up with WWE 2K18 in order to start revealing the professional wrestling (sports entertainment?) game’s roster. Today, they revealed nearly 50 characters that’ll be playable in the upcoming October 17 release. These include some of today’s most popular superstars like Braun Strowman and Sami Zayn, legends such as Bret Hart and Dusty Rhodes, and developmental NXT wrestlers. Plus, for the first time, 205 Live cruiserweight participants will be in the game, as the champ Akira Tozawa is also confirmed.

The biggest confirmation is that it’ll include the modern day Maharaja, WWE Champion Jinder Mahal. So, fans won’t have to worry about developer Yuke’s and 2K hindering Jinder. You can view the first in-game screenshot of the greatest champion in professional wrestling history below (courtesy of IGN):
