The "WWE 2K15" roster may not include a fan-favorite wrestler. According to a report from Attack of the Fan Boy on Aug. 25, Zack Ryder was asked if he will be included as a playable character in the upcoming wrestling game. The superstar responded by saying that he does not think so.

Zack Ryder became a prominent member of WWE in 2007. He managed to become quite popular by creating a popular video series called "Z! True Long Island Story" on YouTube. He was able to gain a big social media following as a result. However, the wrestler fell into hard times recently after ending his show and not being a part of television tapings.

It now appears that Zack Ryder won't be in the "WWE 2K15" video game at all. All living wrestlers got a full body scan in order to increase the visual fidelity of character models. As a result, the wrestling title looks a lot more realistic when compared to the previous installments of the series. Zack Ryder has not yet been scanned, which could mean that he most likely will be left out.

2K Games did a roster reveal earlier this month during an all-star panel hosted by "Stone Cold" Steve Austin. However, some of the omissions ended up upsetting many fans. Eventually, the publisher reassured enthusiasts that more reveals should be announced in the near future although so specific time frames were provided.

"WWE 2K15" is coming out on Oct. 28, giving 2K Games only two months to reveal the rest of the roster. This year's installment is the first in the series to be developed for the PS4 and Xbox One next-generation systems. It is also being released on the PS3 and Xbox 360 current-generation consoles at the same time.
