We’re less than a month away from WWE 2K17’s October 11th release date, and the roster is nearing its final form. It was announced earlier today that the likes of Eddie Guerrero and Austin Aries are set to join the game’s base roster of well over 100 playable wrestlers as DLC, though the pack’s price and release date are yet to be announced.
2K Sports caused quite the stir by omitting NXT’s Four Horsewomen from last year’s game, and they’ll be looking to avoid such transgressions this year. While lengthy development cycles mean the game’s roster is always going to be a few months out-of-date upon release, DLC allows 2K to retrospectively add wrestlers they were unable to include on launch day.
Today’s news brings current Raw Tag Title contenders Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows into the picture, but there are still a number of omissions from the main rosters, NXT, and the legends pool. 2K16 saw just under 30 wrestlers join the roster via DLC, and if that number is anything to go by, more are surely on the way.
Wrestlers like CM Punk aren’t going to appear for obvious reasons, but there are countless other wrestlers who could conceivably fill the remaining gaps. Here are 10 DLC characters that we want to see appear in WWE 2K17.
