WWE 2K15: Who should the remaining 32 characters be?

Assuming the report that there are 92 character slots in the upcoming WWE 2K15 game, after the big roster reveal, there would appear to be 32 slots remaining. We know that NXT will be represented in the new career mode so some slots should go to some out those great performers. The roster so far is pretty light on legends as well. With a big focus going into classic rivalries, it seems a lock that there are going to be some more legends added, though no version of Mick Foley is likely due to him not signing his Legends contract. So, wrestling fans, who should fill the remaining spots. Here is a possible list. Feel free to post your own wishlist in the comments.

"Macho Man" Randy Savage

Well, he's a legend and had some historic feuds with the likes of Hulk Hogan and many others that are not in the game (since feuds are a focus). The bottom line is that he is one of the top 10 greatest talents in the history of pro wrestling.

Andre the Giant

Andre had a long feud with Hogan also. And who doesn't love to put him up against Big Show? You can recite lines from "The Princess Bride" if you like.

Bret "Hitman" Hart

Another top 10 great. His rivalry with Shawn Michaels had a whole DVD release dedicated to it. With Sting in the game, you can have a Sharpshooter versus Scorpion Deathlock submission match.

Jake "The Snake" Roberts

Part of the newest batch of Hall of Famers, Roberts was a master of in-ring psychology. He is indirectly responsible for the "Austin 3:16" catch phrase and brought Savage out of "retirement" with their feud.

Scott Hall

Hall or Razor Ramon or whatever you call him, he's a Hall of Famer as well. With Hogan and Nash in, you have to have the other original nWo member, the actual original. One more for the good guys.

"Rowdy" Roddy Piper

WWE 2K14 had his face but not his name. It makes no sense to not just go ahead and put him in. His rivalry with Hogan lasted over a decade and was, at one time, wrestling's top heel. Oh, and the Goldust street fight? Never mind.

Trish Stratus

If you want a proper Diva feud, you need Trish. She was the top female attraction in WWE for nearly her entire run and may be the top Diva of all time.

Lita

Not many are worthy of going toe-to-toe with Trish and none more so than Lita. She was a female luchador without the mask. Everything she did just looked impressive. And she's now a Hall-of-Famer.

Ultimate Warrior

With Warrior's death, it seems right to honor him one more time now that the bad blood between him and WWE seems to be over. Put him against Hogan as well. Is there anyone Hogan didn't fight?

Adam Rose

He may be a joke but the kids love Adam Rose. Don't they? Well, the theme song is fun and with no Zack Ryder, who's going to be the game's whipping boy?

Bo Dallas

WWE may have stopped Bo-lieving but that doesn't mean gamers have to. If nothing else, he has the funniest post-win routine in the game today.

Emma

Along with some Walmart merchandise, Emma has stolen the heart of the WWE Universe. Not really. She's weird but talented. The Diva division is stronger with her in it.

Paige

Curious exclusion of the up-until-recently Divas Champion. Maybe the developers are just trying to keep up with her ever-expanding move-set. If done correctly, she can be the most fun Diva to use.

Rusev

Definitely would have thought Rusev would have been in the game with the massive push he's been getting. With the roster in the game stronger than that of actual WWE, his squashes aren't going to come as easily.

Stardust

The erstwhile Cody Rhodes is almost a certain downloadable character. Even if WWE creative has no idea what to do with him, Stardust is too much fun to not have in the game.

Adrian Neville

The NXT champ is probably due for a call-up soon and all of his moves have been captured before. So if NXT is represented, Neville is a lock.

Bayley

Full Sail University's favorite female competitor would be a great addition if for no other reason than a possible "Bailey's gonna hug you" chant.

Bull Dempsey

Bull has only been around a short time but King Kong Bundy was in the last game and their not all that different except for the mullet thing Dempsey has.

Charlotte

Daughter of the "Nature Boy" Ric Flair (who could also be in the game), Charlotte's promotion to the main roster is a certainty. Making her part of the game's NXT division would be slam dunk.

Sin Cara & Kalisto

Sin Cara's exclusion from the game was a bit curious but it would be made up for if his current tag team partner, Kalisto, comes with. Kalisto's moveset is bonkers.

The Ascension

The Ascension

There is a lack of great tag teams in both WWE and NXT. The Ascension may be the best of them all now that the Big E & Kofi team seems to have been tossed out.

Sami Zayn

Everybody loves Sami. The former El Generico is the highlight of any match he's in. His rivalry with Cesaro would be an amazing underdog addition to the game. Maybe his indie tag partner (and new NXT recruit) Kevin Steen could join him.

Sasha Banks

"The Boss" has the attitude portion down. Her ring work is coming along as well. She just needs to add a few moves to her repertoire.

Tyler Breeze

Tyler Breeze

The #1 contender to the NXT crown has a pitiful finisher. It's a move Rob Van Dam barely knocks anyone down with anymore but, for some reason, he's over in the NXT Universe.

It would be amazing if, somehow, Steen, KENTA, and Fergal Devitt also were in the game since their signings have been so greatly celebrated. That's just a pipe dream, however.
