WWE 2K15 main roster revealed

Today, WWE and 2K Sports confirmed the first 60 of the reported 92 playable characters in the upcoming "WWE 2K15" video game. More often than not, this is the most exciting moment with these games. The names differ a tiny bit depending on whether you are looking at the WWE or WWE2K site.

Kevin Nash is listed on WWE.com but not on the WWE2K site. Nash himself revealed, earlier in the week, that his 90's character Diesel was going to be in the game and that former TNA and current Ring of Honor star Jay Lethal was providing the motion capture. Being that Nash is a foot taller than Lethal was, apparently, not a concern. Also, there are actually three different Hulk Hogans. There is the classic 80's Hogan, the nWo "Hollywood" Hogan, and the current 60-plus-old edition. Despite the fact that Hogan is training for a possible one-off match return, WWE has no intention of allowing the biggest name in the history of the business to possibly cripple himself while dropping one last leg drop.

As mentioned, there are supposedly 92 spots total and that leaves 32. There were 19 downloadable characters in WWE 2K14. The roster is, thus far, very light on legends. But it is, at least, very light on repeat characters as only Hogan and Sting have multiple incarnations. Renee Young, at the annual Summerslam WWE game panel, also made mention of the inclusion of the developmental division of NXT. This would be part of the new career mode but it stands to reason that a few roster slots are going to go to some of the NXT performers. All signs point to this being to most diverse roster a wrestling game has ever had. The list is, as follows (first-time playables are labeled with an asterisk):
