2K Sports’ WWE 2K18 already has an impressive roster, with hundreds of wrestlers to choose from across the Raw, Smackdown and NXT brands, with even more to come via downloadable content over the next few months. But all those opponents stand…NO CHANCE IN HELL.
It’s no secret that the president of WWE, Vince McMahon, will be appearing on WWE Smackdown tonight, addressing the recent events of what occurred between Shane McMahon and Kevin Owens. To celebrate the occasion, the official WWE Twitter account confirmed today that Mr. McMahon will be joining the WWE 2K18 roster as a playable wrestler.
Mr. McMahon has appeared in his fair share of matches over the past few years, including a great encounter against “Stone Cold” Steve Austin inside a steel cage several years ago. So there’s no doubt he could hold his own against a number of male superstars within the game, like Kevin Owens…or even Shane O’ Mac himself?
As you can see from the below photo, Mr. McMahon is decked out in his business suit, which is likely to be one of his costumes within the game. But he’s likely to have some wrestling gear as well, though 2K Sports hasn’t confirmed what kind of outfit this is just yet. We’re sure it’ll be intimidating – it has to be facing off against someone like Brock Lesnar or Braun Strowman, anyway.
This likely won’t be the final reveal for WWE 2K18, as we noted that 2K Sports still has yet to reveal the downloadable content that will be available within the game. Hopefully we’ll be seeing a few more NXT faces show up, and perhaps even Kairi Sane, who’s appearing in the Mae Young Classic finals tonight. Just wishful thinking there. (We can always create her using the create-a-wrestler system within the game.)
We recently confirmed 40+ wrestlers that were being added to WWE 2K18, including Razor Ramon, Chris Jericho (MAAAAAAAN!), and a handful of others, giving you plenty of variety when it comes to hitting the ring and creating havoc. Now let’s see if they can handle Mr. McMahon.
