WWE 2K14 Wrestlemania roster revealed

The atmosphere outside the Staples Center in Los Angeles is positively palpable. The fans are out in full force for the WWE Summerslam Fan Axxess event. Kids are holding up tiny championship belts or waiting in line for an autograph and a photo with John Cena.

Somewhere past the throng of fans of all ages, sizes and colours there sits a full-sized wrestling ring. Earlier in the day several bodies were thrown around, but right now three prominent members of the WWE stand in the centre. While current bad guy and expert trash talker Damien Sandow riffs and insults the audience, Jerry “The King” Lawler and Jim Ross (arguably the best commentary team in the history of pro wrestling), make it very clear that with “30 Years of Wrestlemania“, the upcoming WWE2K14 has one of the most ambitious gameplay modes ever featured in a wrestling video game.

The entire (very large) roster – just for Wrestlemania mode – is as follows:

  • The Rock
  • The Ultimate Warrior
  • Retro Big Show
  • CM Punk
  • Sgt Slaughter
  • Edge
  • Diesel
  • Undertaker
  • King Kong Bundy
  • Brock Lesnar
  • Retro Chris Jericho
  • Andre The Giant
  • Alberto Del Rio
  • Ted DiBiasi
  • Retro John Cena
  • Shawn Michaels
  • Ricky Steamboat
  • Retro Triple H
  • Big John Studd
  • Retro Ric Flair
  • Stone Cold Steve Austin
  • Hulk Hogan
  • Hollywood Hogan
  • Retro Kane
  • Randy Orton
  • Retro Undertaker
  • Retro Shawn Michaels
  • Razor Ramon
  • Big Show
  • Triple H
  • Retro Brock Lesnar
  • JBL
  • Bret Hart
  • Chris Jericho
  • Retro The Rock
  • Mick Foley
  • The Miz
  • Batista
  • Yokozuna
  • John Cena
  • Macho Man Randy Savage
  • Goldberg
  • Ric Flair

It was also revealed that JR and King themselves would do commentary for the mode.

Looking at the roster (and we should again point out that this is just the Wrestlemania roster, not the entire game roster!), fans can expect to relive such classics as the Razor Ramon/Shawn Michaels Ladder match and keeping The Undertaker’s streak alive.

This should be more than enough to satisfy any fan of the sport. But, as though the ‘E was worried that the fans in attendance weren’t happy, as an added bonus Hall of Famer and roster member Ric Flair walked out and, in so many words, told Damien Sandow to shove it.

As a huge wrestling fan there have been few moments as cool as watching The Nature Boy strut around the ring, spitting his catchphrases and taking a heel to town (I love my job!).

WWE 2K14 is relaxed in the US on October 28 and worldwide on November 1st. Stay tuned to Player Attack for more from SummerSlam 2013!
