WWE 2K22 Roster Predictions [June 2021]: Current Superstars & Legends

Considering WWE 2K Games always aimed to make bigger rosters every year it's fair to assume we might get it once again. We already have 6 confirmed superstars, not all might be playable like Booker T or Ric Flair, but it is more likely they will be. I have divided this list into various sections with a current roster that is most likely to make the cut, some less likely superstars from NXT and NXT UK, and the list of superstars that could possibly be scanned in the past and might just make the game, but the chances are slim. Here are our WWE 2K22 Roster Predictions.

I have also added a section with people that almost definitely will not make the game like Sting or CM Punk, but it would be rude to ignore them completely. These are only my own, personal predictions and apart from 5 confirmed stars we do not know anything at the time of writing this article, but we can safely assume that some stars will definitely be in the game.

All of those superstars would be NEW additions to the WWE 2K22 roster.

  • Ikemen Jiro NEW

  • JBL
  • The British Bulldog
  • Jushin “Thunder” Liger
  • “Hollywood” Hulk Hogan
  • Kevin Nash
  • Scott Hall
  • The Great Khali

Less Likely Superstars due to being released recently from WWE or for other reasons:

It is almost certain that these stars will not make it to the game, but there is a very slim chance that some of the stars have already been scanned, and we do not know the details between WWE and 2K.

  • Samoa Joe
  • Andrade
  • Peyton Royce
  • Billie Kay
  • Mickie James
  • Chelsea Green
  • Tucker
  • Kalisto
  • Bo Dallas
  • Wesley Blake
  • Steve Cutler
  • Christian
  • Diamond Dallas Page
  • Jake Roberts
  • Kurt Angle
  • Mojo Rowley
  • Chris Jericho
  • CM Punk
  • Sting
  • Velveteen Dream
  • Dudley Boyz

Recently Released WWE Superstars:

  • Braun Strowman
  • Buddy Murphy
  • Aleister Black
  • Ruby Riott
  • Lana
  • Santana Garrett

Managers:

I have listed all the active managers in WWE as of May 2021.

  • Paul Heyman
  • MVP [as a manager]
  • Mei Ying
  • Robert Stone
  • Scarlett
  • Malcolm Bivens

WWE 2K22 will be the first game with a one-year gap in development. The expectations are huge, and what is the better way to please the fans than with the biggest roster up to date. I personally would love the game to be focused more on new and upcoming talent from NXT and NXT UK instead of the legends, due to several reasons. Many young people play video games and not everyone is familiar with all of the legends from the old days.

It would also be much easier in recreating moves and scanning faces of younger stars than making scans of older people to look younger. It is a much harder job, and the game’s overall quality would benefit from having most of the superstars scanned from the scratch.

One of the important notes to make is that depending on what the developers will do with the Community Creations we might not need every superstar to be in the game. With improved tools, and possibly some cross-platform CAWs, as well as custom songs [purely speculating] we might be able to create literally anyone we dream of in the game and share it with other fans. I hope we will get as many moves and new animations as possible, and even if some of the stars will not make the roster, their moves will be included to choose and assign in the creation process. I really have high hopes for the game, but feeling worse and worse with more WWE Releases sadly.

Be sure to check our WWE 2K22 Roster page for all of the updates on this year's roster.


WWE 2K22 is scheduled to release sometime in late 2021.
