Bad News U Pack in WWE 2K23

The Bad News U Pack will be the fifth and final post-launch DLC pack for WWE 2K23. It will come after the Steiner Row, Pretty Sweet, Race to NXT, and the Revel with Wyatt DLC packs. Bad News U will go live on August 16.

Much like with the other packs, five new individuals will be added to the roster for WWE 2K23. One of those names is Eve Torres, a former Divas Champion in the late 2000s and early 2010s.

Then, there’s former wrestler and current color commentator Wade Barrett. Barrett is well-known for his “Bad News” persona, as well as being the former leader of the Nexus and Corre stables. Nowadays, he spends most of his time inside the ring, but this pack will let you throw it back to his younger days.

Three NXT performers, Andre Chase, Damon Kemp, and Nathan Frazer, will also be a part of the fifth and final DLC pack in WWE 2K23.

This pack was confirmed on March 6 by 2K, when it released official information regarding the Season Pass of WWE 2K23. WWE 2K23 will be released on March 17 for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S.
