WWE 2K22 DLC Roster

More Names Planned for WWE 2K22 DLC Roster

With its release fast approaching, fans continue to wonder who will be a part of the full roster for WWE 2K22. While WWE and 2K continue to do a fantastic job of keeping that information for customers, details surrounding planned wrestlers for the WWE 2K22 DLC roster continue to make their way out.

SGO has learned of a number of wrestlers currently planned to be included as part of the game’s DLC roster packs. While none of these names have been confirmed by 2K despite being asked, we can confirm that plans have been in place and designs have been made for a number of current and past WWE superstars.

Starting with the current members of the roster that likely won’t be on the base game, NXT 2.0 will have a presence post-launch.

Current NXT Champion Bron Breakker, NXT North American Champion Carmelo Hayes, and former NXT Tag Team Champions MSK have been planned to be post-launch content for some time. When WWE made the transition from the black and gold version of NXT to NXT 2.0, they were four superstars that the company requested be included in the game. Our understanding is that the developers had no issues getting them reader for addition.

Other current wrestlers SGO was able to confirm were requested and being created are current NXT UK Champion Ilja Dragunov and current RAW superstar Doudrop. When asked about a potential of Dragunov being on the roster at launch, one source said that it was possible but couldn’t confirm if that decision was actually made.

What About Legends in WWE 2K22?

Aside from current members of the WWE roster, WWE 2K games always feature legends as DLC. WWE 2K22 is shaping up to be no different. While we’ve heard of a number of names floated around, there are a few that were “100% planned” to be included more recently.

Aside from the previously reported Umaga and The Boogeyman, two more names that are planned are WWE Hall of Famer Yokozuna and WWE legend Vader. There are other names that SGO has heard, but has been unable to confirm as of writing.

Who Else Did WWE Want for WWE 2K22 Roster?

As far as names that won’t be in the game, we’ve learned of some that were floated, but no deal was reached for various reasons. The first is Legion of Doom. With both men having since passed away, WWE would have to negotiate with the estates of Road Warrior Hawk and Road Warrior Animal. Unfortunately, tension between the parties left them without a deal for the game.

Again, 2K refused to comment on the names presented when reached directly for comment. However, we’ve been told by multiple people that these names were planned for quite some time. So, for them not to appear at some point would signify something happening like a release or complete change of direction, the former much more likely than the latter. There’s also the possibility of some of the names being added to the launch roster, though that information likely would’ve come out by now from 2K if that were the case.

My local Gamestop has told me I can pre-order the game and hold it for at least a month, so I’ll do that and see what DLC’s they bring out. If after that month it isn’t worth the money, I’ll transfer it to another game.

Can you guys try to find out who will be in the same DLC Pack as Machine Gun Kelly? Is it likely that Johnny Knoxville will be in the game?
