WWE 2K16: First Six Playable Characters Revealed

The first six roster members for WWE 2K16 have been revealed and I think everyone is going to be pretty happy with one of the inclusions.  Here they are:
  1. Bad News Barrett
  2. Daniel Bryan
  3. Dean Ambrose
  4. Finn Balor
  5. Paige
  6. Seth Rollins
While five of those are pretty much no-brainers, I think Finn Balor is the one that is the most crowd-pleasing inclusion. Since he's still down in NXT he's also the one that was most likely not to be there or to be put in a DLC pack down the road. is the source for this information.  2K's WWE Games really hasn't ramped up its coverage of the new game which is disappointing.  As usual I am more interested in which Legends we get in this year's game.  I know some may see it as a shameless cash grab, but I think 2K needs to look long and hard at putting "The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes in the game.  He appeared in WWE 2K14 and was one of my favorites to play as.  I wouldn't see his inclusion this year as something shameless as much as it would be giving the fans what they want.  You can't tell me that there aren't tons of wrestling fans who'd love to fire that game up and play as "The American Dream" right now.

I'll continue to cover this game as we find out more about it over the next few months.  As usual, I can't wait to get my hands on it.

WWE arrives in North America on October 27th and Internationally on October 30th.  It will be available on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360.
