WWE2K20: Every Confirmed Wrestler (So Far)
Hello. My name is Neil Gray. I'm 46 years old, and I'm a pro-wrestling fan. *Whew* That felt good to get off my chest, I feel liberated, I feel cleansed. Now, I know there are a lot of people who see wrestling as some pseudo sport, but these people are idiots as anyone that even has the slightest knowledge about it will tell you that pro-wrestlers are the best and hardest workers in the world. These guys and girls are on the road nearly 350 days out of the year and injuries are something that, unless they cripple you, you have to work through. Cause if you don't work, you don't get paid.
These are also the same people who will tell you that a pro-wrestler wouldn't stand a chance in the UFC to which you can laugh in their face and say, Brock Lesnar. So this guide isn't for them as they'll have no interest in what 2K games have got in-store with their forthcoming release WWE2K20. This guide is for you, dear reader, and what follows is a look at every single wrestler that has been confirmed, so far, for the game.
WWE2K20: Every Confirmed Wrestler
Let's start our guide with the cover star for WWE2K20, the former Lass-Kicker, Becky Lynch. Okay, so she's the co-cover star, but it's hard to get excited about Roman Reigns when The Man is the most crucial wrestler in the business today. Come at me, Kenny Omega.
And talking of Roman Reigns, I may have been a little hard on The Big Dog in my first entry. It seems that you're either a fan of his or not, and I happen to fall into the former camp as I don't think he's anywhere near as bad as people make out. It's also fantastic to see him back after his battle with leukemia, so he deserves second billing on the cover in my humble opinion.
If Becky Lynch is the most crucial wrestler in the business today, come at me Kenny Omega, then The Fiend is the most exciting. Bray Wyatt's alter-ego has been a runaway success ever since the Firefly Funhouse debuted and if you're willing to pre-order WWE2K20, you can get him as bonus DLC content. So yeah, that's a thing I need to do.
He may be sinking like a stone as a babyface, though his tricker of Dolph Ziggler was pretty funny, there's no doubting that The Miz is one of the best heels around today. His inclusion in the game is excellent news for fans of Michael Gregory Mizanin because as soon as you boot up the game, you can go into settings, change his alignment, and turn him back into the giant douche-bag he was born to play.
She may have more plastic on her than a recycling center and look like a cross between the scream mask and Tabitha Stevens, oh don't pretend you don't know who that is, but The Queen is still one of the biggest pulls in the industry. She's seemingly so untouchable that she doesn't even need to be near either of the titles for her to get retirement against Trisha Stratus, which pretty much speaks for itself in regards to Charlotte's place within the company.
I'm not sure where I stand when it comes to the Velveteen Dream. As a wrestler, he doesn't thrill me like Tommaso Ciampa, but he does have mad mic skills, as the kids would say. The fact that he demands to be called up to the main roster at every opportunity makes me laugh, and even though that hasn't happened yet, not at the time of writing this anyway, he's in the new game, so that's something, I suppose.
From a wrestler that I'm not entirely sure of to one that I'm convinced could kill me with just a simple thought. The Beast Incarnate is a no-brainer and was always going to be in WWE2K20. Next.
Big Match John falls into the Brock Lesnar category as there was no way that WWE2K20 was going to release without him. Moving on.
It was evident that the Mayor of Knox County was going to be in the game when the first teaser trailer hit and his mask was on view. The Big Red Machine might be past his sell-by date, but as he's still an active member of the roster, then his inclusion is warranted. When they finally get around to revealing The Undertaker as well, you can look forward to teaming the Brothers of Destruction together again. Hopefully this time it'll be better than that Saudi Arabia rubbish.
The current Smackdown Women's Champion, again this is at the time of writing, and serial hugger Bayley has also been confirmed for WWE2K20. Which is excellent news as if anyone needed a heel turn it's her, and that is one of the first things I intend to do when I get my grubby little hands on a copy. I might even go the whole hog and goth her ring gear out as well. Evil Bayley will rule the WWE!!!
And wherever Bayley goes, then you know her real-life best friend and in-ring tormentor, Sasha Banks, will follow. The Boss is back with a new hair-do, and a bad-ass attitude and, hopefully, this carries over into WWE2K20 as a heel Sasha Banks is far more entertaining than a babyface one.
Nia Jax is a danger to herself and anyone else unfortunate enough to get into a ring with her. Hands up everyone who'd rather eat their face then have to put up with this rank amateur who only still has a job because she's related to The Rock? Wow, that's a lot of hands.
The Monster Among Men can be played in his usual big-bearded, get these hands, guise or if you've pre-ordered the Bray Wyatt DLC option then as Frankenstrowman. So, if you didn't find Braun scary enough to start with then super-size him into a god damn monster.
The Master of the 619 will be available to you so you can throw him in against all of the other high-fliers on the WWE's roster and have some rip-roaring matches, or chuck him on 205 in hopes that it's boost the ratings. I'm not sure if you only get Rey if you order the Legends Edition, but it shouldn't matter either way as he'll be out injured before you know it.
Nikki Cross has been so badly handled since her call up to the main roster that the only good news to come out of her inclusion in WWE2K20 is that if she's in it, then Alexa Bliss can't be too far behind.
And it turns out I was right. Lil' Miss Bliss, one of the best heels in the business today and co-player extraordinaire will be joining her BFF in this years WWE 2K20.
Somebody, please correct me if I'm wrong here, but in their entire time on the main roster, I can't recall the Street Prophets doing anything other than hanging out backstage. I could've easily missed any match they may have been involved in as I now use their screen time to go to the toilet which will come in handy during the marathon Universe Mode sessions I will no doubt have.
The world's most hated vegan environmentalist will be in WWE2K20, and that fills me with joy cause asshole Daniel Bryan is so much more entertaining than the conquering hero he played on his return.
I love Asuka so you can imagine my utter horror at the way she's been treated in the WWE. The Empress of Tomorrow has gone from the most dominant force in women's wrestling to a laughing stock, and that's heart-breaking. Thankfully, WWE2K20 will give me a chance to rectify that and have her in some of the most epic battles seen inside a WWE ring as I take her back to her rightful place, on top the heap of the Women's Division.
Why? Just why?
The Viper will be laying RKO's out of nowhere all over WWE2K20, and that's always something to look forward to.
He wrestles in his pants, has more tattoos than anyone needs, and is dark and broody. He's also confirmed for WWE2K20. The rumor that his secret room will also be making an appearance remains just a rumor at the time of writing.
Finn Balor should be the face of the WWE instead of being a mid-carder. Well, thankfully, his inclusion in WWE2K20 will allow you to right that wrong and finally gives the former Prince Devitt another shot at the Universal Championship.
He may have seemingly been around since the dawn of time and may only have his standing in the company thanks to his friendship with Triple H, but at least with Sheamus being in WWE2K20, you can finally get The Bar back together.
Everyone's favorite racist Grand-Pa is back, and that's all I have to say on that.
King Book-Ka will be in WWE2K20, and I for one, can't wait to have him stomp Hulk Hogan's racist ass into the mat at the first available opportunity.
I'm so looking forward to hurting Hulk Hogan at every turn that I think I'll team King Booker up with the returning Papa Shango and get some voodoo on his racist ass.
If you love wrestling, then there is no doubt in my mind that Mankind, and Mick Foley in general, has a special place in your heart. He's the true definition of a legend, and it's going to be a blast putting the mad one up against some of the new crops of wrestlers in-game.
If you have no idea who The Rock is, then you must've been living on Mars for the past few decades. If you also have no idea why it's exciting to have The Great One included in WWE2K20, then you're reading the wrong guide. Pretty sure there's a UFC one for you kicking around somewhere on this site.
Stone Cold Steve Austin
The fact that The Texas Rattlesnake is included in WWE2K20 opens up a world of possibilities for a stunner-off between him and Kevin Owens.
The inclusion of the greatest wrestler to ever live, come at me Kenny Omega. In WWE2K20 fills my little heart with glee as, finally, you can prove Ric's adage that to be the man, you've got to beat the man.
I've only got three things to say on this subject. 1: About goddamn time. 2: Shame on you WWE for waiting for Chyna to die before acknowledging her vast contribution to your product. 3: Who else is looking forward to putting the Ninth Wonder Of The World up against The Man?
Seeing the Rated R Superstar at this years, Summerslam was the ultimate hit of nostalgia, and when he speared Elias out of his boots I thought my brain was going to implode from the sure, unadulterated rush of fear for his life and "DAMN!!! EDGE JUST SPEARED THE CRAP OUT OF ELIAS!!!!" that I got. And if you felt the same way as me, then you can live that moment over and over again as Edge is confirmed for WWE2K20.
And talking of spear's and wrestlers having it bad then poor old Dolph Ziggler really can't be looking forward to the serious amount of pain players are going to put his character through, over and over again, as they reenact Bill Goldberg's utter demolition of him from this year's Summerslam. Poor Dolph and Elias must wish they'd asked for their releases.
He won Olympic Gold with a broken fricking neck and this year you'll be able to lay the Angle Lock on any poor schmuck that takes your fancy.
The Stinger will be available for you to play as in WWE2K20 which means that you can put him up against his old foe Ric Flair or take a baseball bat to Seth Rollins for ending his career. I know where my intentions lie.
Shawn Michaels and Triple H
What's that you say? A WWE game with both members of DX in it? Well, duh.
Having graced the cover of last years WWE 2K19, it was only a matter of time before The Phenomenal One was confirmed for this year's game. As he's now teaming with Gallows and Anderson again, expect their reveal to not be very far behind.
It's alright, you can admit it, you'd forgotten that Alicia Fox still had a job with the WWE didn't you? Don't worry yourself about it, I'm pretty sure that everybody else had as well, except for those people at 2K who seem to feel that she needs to be in their game, each and every year.
Andre The Giant
Well, I suppose it was inevitable that if Racist Grand-Pa was going to be in the game then the man who put him on the wrestling map would have to be here as well. This time around though, when I re-enact Wrestlemania 3, I'm just going to have Andre sit on him.
Big Boss Man
He may only ever have been seen as a mid-carder and once fed Al Snow's beloved dog, Pepper, to him but that shouldn't take away from the fact that Ray Washington Traylor Jr. was a great worker who was beloved by fans and fellow professionals alike.
I personally feel it's a shame to see just how bitter Bret Hart has become over the years in regards to his career because, in his hey-day, The Excellence Of Execution was one of the very best to ever step between the ropes and his feud with Shawn Michaels is a major reason that the WWE is the monster company that they are today.
One half of The Bella Twins and Daniel Bryan's baby momma is on here as is...
....here sister and long-time tag partner Nikki. Whether or not WWE 2K20 will come with the option to host your own episodes of Total Bella's is yet to be confirmed.
Oi, this guy. The man who only ever had a career in Pro-Wrestling because he was BFF's with everyone's favorite Racist Grand-Pa has, somehow, managed to find his way into another WWE game.
How Buddy Murphy has not been pushed to the moon by now is something that keeps me awake at night. He's easily the MVP of the WWE and puts on stellar match after stellar match whenever he goes out to the ring. I guess that until Vince releases his death-like grip on the company, big sweaty men will still be at the forefront of WWE programming.
A seriously under-rated wrestler and former World Champion, just don't mention James Ellsworth, The Princess Of Staten Island will be in this years WWE 2K20. No sign of R-Truth just yet but with Carmella, already confirmed it won't be too long before he is.
Again, why? Just why?
When The Scottish Psychopath re-signed for the WWE I was sure that by now, he'd have had at least one run with a big belt by now but, for whatever reason, the company seems reluctant to pull the trigger on Drew. At least in WWE 2K20 you'll be able to right this wrong and have him at the top of the card.
I've got to admit, when I first saw that Dusty Rhodes had been confirmed for WWE 2K20, I was surprised. Not because The American Dream doesn't deserve to be in the game, of course he does, but because his two sons are now at the cutting edge of a rival company and I wouldn't have thought that the WWE would want to acknowledge their existence in any way.
Eddie Guerrero is one of my favorite wrestlers of all time and I can't wait to be 5 Star Frog Splashing the hell out of anyone who gets in my way. What would be even better though, is if they have a button for pulling off Latino Heat's signature fake-out when he throws the chair he was going to illegally use at his opponent and hits the floor.
Johnny Gargano's rivalry with Tommaso Ciampa was one of the greatest rivalries to grace any wrestling ring so it's pretty safe to say that if Gargano is already confirmed then his former DIY partner won't be far behind.
Kevin Owens career in the WWE has been up and down, to say the least, but you can make all that a distant memory by taking KO to the top of the mountain and having him stunner the bejesus out of anyone who tries to take his belt.
She may be seen as a veteran these days, and there's an argument to be made that she's coming to the end of her in-ring career, but there was a time when Mickie James was one of the most important women wrestlers in the world. So treat her as such in WWE 2K20 and give her one last run with the gold.
Another former Women's Champion graces the game and though it seems that the Devil will be skating to work on the day Naomi gets another go with the belt, it's good to know that she'll at least be available for you to use as cannon fodder for The Man.
One of the most under-rated wrestlers, ever, Natalya is just as responsible for kick-starting the Women's Revolution as anyone else you'd care to mention. After all, it was her epic match with Charlotte in NXT that proved to the WWE hierarchy that, when given the time, the girls could easily outwrestle the boys any day of the week.
A career that was cut tragically short in its prime, Paige has had a world of shit thrown in her direction and has still managed to come out of the other side just as loved and respected as she was going in. It's sad that we'll never get to see her perform in the ring ever again but at least in-game she'll wrestle forever.
Oooooooo yeah!!! The Macho Man Randy Savage will be proving that he's still the cream of the crop in WWE 2K20. Rumors that the Deluxe Edition of the game will come with small packets of milk has yet to be confirmed.
It's strange to think that within the space of a year, Ronda Rousey went from being the most beloved babyface in the company to be hated with X-Pac levels of heat come Wrestlemania 35. It was strange as hell and seemingly proves just how fickle fans can be but if you're going to do a Four Horsewomen story then you've got to include her.
The Rowdy One will be changing the questions, chewing bubblegum, and kicking ass in WWE 2K20. And I, for one, can't bloody wait.
Why Rusev hasn't demanded and gotten his release from the company yet is beyond me. He's the prime example of a wasted talent and on that has, seemingly, been punished for having the nerve to get himself over. I still love you Ru-Ru but it's time you headed for pastures new.
And another talent I think would be better off elsewhere, The Samoan Submission Machine talks a good game but barely gets the chance to back it up in the ring. He'd be the perfect heel champion as well, destroying everybody that gets in his path as he rides roughshod over the WWE.
I don't know what to say about Seth Rollins. Other than I hope he's learned to keep his mouth shut and just concentrate on his time at the head of the company, instead of having a pop at everyone and their grandma for having the nerve to work outside the WWE. Amazing how quickly people forget where they came from, isn't it?
I know you're not supposed to speak ill of the dead but when that dead person happened to be a raging homophobe then f**k him.
He may be well past his sell-by date and really should've hung it up after that loss to Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania but the guy's a legend and no WWE game would be fit for release without him. Hopefully, you can give him the send-off he deserves this time around.
The host of the hilarious and phenomenally successful Up,Up,Down,Down, the owner of some of the greatest curly boots since The Iron Shiek, and one third of The New Day, Xavier Woods was always going to be included in WWE 2K20, if for no other reason than he's brought a whole new demographic to WWE TV through his show.
