Lucha Dragons, Eva Marie & More Confirmed For WWE 2K16


It looks as though the WWE 2K16 roster reveal will not take place during SummerSlam weekend this year, as IGN have unveiled a batch of Superstars that will appear in the game, in the first of a weekly series.

The Lucha Dragons start off the list, with the high-flying Kalisto making his debut in the series. Booker T will put down his headset in exchange for a pair of wrestling boots, as he also steps back inside the squared circle in WWE 2K16. Triple H will be back as usual, and Kane will be as well, although this year will mark his first appearance with the Corporate Kane attire.

I’m expecting a much larger roster of Divas this year, so it’s good to see that Emma has been promoted from last year’s DLC to the main roster in WWE 2K16. Summer Rae and Tamina will return, and Eva Marie is also included after missing out in 2K15.

Rolling back the years are Lord Steven Regal (Regal’s character in 1993), Colonel Mustafa (better known as The Iron Sheik), and General Adnan. Mustafa and Adnan were both part of a stable with Sgt. Slaughter in the early 90’s.

That’s all we’ve got for now, but these roster announcements will be coming in thick and fast over the next few weeks. 2K have already assured us that the game will feature a massive roster of over 120 playable characters.

2K recently provided us with a mountain of information regarding WWE 2K16 at gamescom, including a brand new reversal system and improvements to My Career mode.

Check out the new entrance video for Kalisto in WWE 2K16 below. Lu-cha! Lu-cha! Lu-cha!
