Following the update to the WWE 2K24 Roster Page, where we added the complete list of Superstars and Women available as playable characters on-disc, we began examining the Superstars that are not present in the current WWE Roster and those that were removed from the previous main WWE game, WWE 2K23.

The WWE 2K24 Roster on-disc features debuting superstars like Bronson Reed, Fallon Henley, Thea Hail, and Maxxine Dupri, and some welcomed returns such as Ken Shamrock, The Fiend, George Steele, and the 3 Faces of Foley.

There are 232 characters to be available on day one on disc, but some managers, some alternate versions, and the DLC, are still left to be announced. 

Every year, not every single WWE wrestler ends up included in the game, depending on several factors such as prominence in programming, time constraints, or other reasons.

In this article, we take a look at all the Superstars and Women that are missing from WWE 2K24, or that have been removed compared to WWE 2K23.

Keep in mind that like last year, WWE 2K24 will have a proper Downloadable Content offering with 5 different DLC Packs. We added a note in the following list of Superstars for those who we think have a good chance to be added as DLC at a later date after the release of the game.
