He or she has to work their way on to the main roster, ultimately winning championship belts.

The official roster for "WWE 2K15" has still not yet been announced. However, potential leaks suggest that John Cena, Justin Gabriel, Summer Rae and The Undertaker are going to be playable. In the past installments, the complete list of characters was usually announced during an event set before the SummerSlam, which takes place in Aug. of this year. However, the delay may have changed the announcement plans.
