Finally, we are only 4 weeks away from WWE 2K22 being released on March 8th for owners of The Deluxe, Cross-Gen, or NWO 4-Life Game Editions (March 11th for Standard Edition Players).
Over the last few weeks, we have seen a new series by the official WWE games Youtube Account called The Ringside Report which showed off the first bit of uninterrupted gameplay that was a one-on-one match between the cover star Rey Mysterio and series newcomer Damien Priest.
This is a good step in the right direction for 2K as many people wanted to see some gameplay since one of 2K22's selling points is the re-designed Gameplay Engine so people wanted to see the gameplay engine in action before the game is released when players can see it for themselves.
Another thing that 2K has been doing on their official @WWEgames Twitter Account is daily revealing superstars on the WWE 2K22 Roster along with their overall ratings and screenshots of their in-game character models
When compared to WWE 2K20 the models look really impressive, this being due to all of the superstars being rescanned or receiving a touch-up if they were sadly no longer with us.
Some people wanted to know if the WWE Legends Roster had received this treatment as well and so far all of the revealed legends have along with their overall ratings and what looks like updated Titantrons which fit better when used in any of the in-game arenas with the widescreen LED boards.
So in this article, we will be going over all of the WWE legends revealed for the WWE 2K22 roster and comparing their overall ratings in 2K22 to their last video game appearance.
WWE 2K22 Revealed Legends and Overalls
Here are some of the legends who have been revealed for WWE 2K22's roster along with their overall ratings.
This would be a slight increase from WWE 2K20 as his rating in that game was an 89 overall.
The next superstar reveal would be another returning legend, that being the Big Red Machine Kane who has been given an 82 overall this year.
Once again this would a slight improvement since, in WWE 2K20, Kane would be rated an 80 overall in the last game.
Currently, we haven't received an official rating for the variation of Kane from 2008 since it was confirmed during the first Ringside Report video that not only is there a 2008 version of Kane but also Rey Mysterio's match against Kane at Cyber Sunday 2008 is one of the playable matches in the 2K Showcase.
The next superstar would be making their first playable appearance in 19 years that would be in WWE Smackdown Here Comes The Pain.
The superstar in question would be none other than former Monday Night Raw GM Eric Bischoff.
He would be given a rating of 69 in WWE 2K22.
This would be a vast improvement to WWE Smackdown Here Comes The Pain where Eric would only have an overall rating of 52.
The next legend reveal would be the former 6-Time World Champion Booker T who would have an overall rating in WWE 2K22 of 88.
Booker's rating would like the others, be an overall improvement since in WWE 2K20 was an 86 overall.
Curiously when looking at Booker T during the scanning process, it is done when he had his full beard, however, his in-game model wouldn't have the beard s this may hint at him having a second attire where Booker has his beard.
The next superstar to be revealed would be the Big Boss Man in WWE 2K22 who has been shown to have an overall rating of 81.
Boss Man's rating would stay unchanged from WWE 2K20 as he was also an 81 overall rating in that game.
The next superstar officially revealed by 2K would be the first female legend to have their rating shown off.
The superstar in question would be none other than the Former Woman's Champion (The Ninth Wonder of The World) Chyna who would have an overall rating in WWE 2K22 of 87.
Like, the Big Boss Man, Chyna's rating would be unchanged from her inclusion in WWE 2K20, she had the same overall rating of 87.
The second to last legend to have an official reveal for WWE 2K22 is another former WWE Champion which would be the Macho Man Randy Savage who would have an overall rating of 88.
Surprisingly, Macho Man would have a lower overall rating between games as in WWE 2K20 his rating would be an 89.
Finally, the last legend to be officially shown off by 2K at the moment is the Former WWE Universal Champion Goldberg who in WWE 2K22 has now an overall rating of 88.
Just like with Randy Savage, Goldberg's rating would be lower than WWE 2K20 where he had an overall rating of 90.
So far with the legends that have gotten, it seems to just be superstars that many people assumed were already going to be in the game, but with there being only 4 weeks until early access, we will just need to wait and see what other legends made the cut.
