Blame John Cena if You Don't Like WWE 2K15's Soundtrack

2K announces the details of the upcoming wrestling game's soundtrack.

WWE 2K15's soundtrack has been curated by none other than cover star John Cena. The man whose gimmick was once being a rapper who would freestyle before matches is now the one who will shoulder any blame (or receive any praise) for the upcoming wrestling game's soundtrack.

2K today announced the first details about the soundtrack. A press releases lists Cena's qualifications as "cover Superstar and music enthusiast," and reveals he's collaborated on two new songs with Wiz Khalifa, which will be available exclusively on a companion soundtrack album.

The soundtrack consists of music from a variety of artists who "transcend several music genres, including hip-hop, rock, and country." The album, however, will only include 10 of these musicians' tracks:

  • Wiz Khalifa & John Cena -- "All Day"
  • B.o.B -- "Ready" (Feat. Future)
  • Rudimental -- "Free" (Feat. Emeli Sandé & Nas)
  • Wiz Khalifa -- "We Dem Boyz"
  • Flo Rida -- "Wild Ones" (Feat. Sia) [WrestleMania 28 Version]
  • Knife Party -- "Bonfire"
  • Big Smo -- "Workin’" (Feat. Alexander King)
  • Mystery Skulls -- "Ghost"
  • Royal Blood -- "Come On Over"
  • Wiz Khalifa & John Cena -- "Breaks"

Both of the Cena-Khalifa songs are exclusive to the album, which releases on October 21. Four other songs will also be present in the game:

  • Avenged Sevenfold -- "This Means War"
  • Dizzee Rascal -- "Heart Of A Warrior" (Feat. Teddy Sky)
  • Florida Georgia Line -- "This Is How We Roll" (Feat. Luke Bryan)
  • Rise Against -- "Zero Visibility

I guess Cena isn't a big fan of Chris Jericho's band, Fozzy.

WWE 2K15 launches for Xbox 360 and PS3 on October 28 in North America and on October 31 in Europe. Xbox One and PS4 versions will then follow on November 18 in North America and November 21 in Europe.

I just turned the music off. Only twelve songs and if you turn the bad ones off you just hear the same couple of songs over and over again. Worst WWE game in years

I'm just glad that this crappy rap cd.that John "Superman" Cena,&isn't coming with this game,that Cena put together because it will go straight in the trash because I hate rap"crap"&John Cena too & I'm sick & tired of Vince McMahon getting almost every Legend & whether they are forced to or not is getting them to shove him down our throats.Ever since his debut,i've always hated him & its to the point where this guy is gonna pass Ric Flairs 16 times championships.And are gonna a biggest deal out of it.Even if they made him a NWO heel like Hogan.And I hated Hogan but it was a good choice until,WCW& Bishoff ruined &ran it's course with Nash vs. Hogan ruined it all.WWE needs somebody to make competition for WWE,Because wrestling sucks right now or since 2008 really and I wish Cena would get hurt so we don't have to see Cena &I really wish we really couldn't see him" Marky Mark"Ever Again.Doesn't WWE know by now we hate good guys,kiss ass HHH,Vince McMahon type of bad guys.WWE needs to watch their $9,99 Network & + a lot more Promotions from WWF,WWE,WCW,ECW,AWA,WCCW,NWA& EVERY OTHER WRESTLING PROGRAMS,&Maybe they would get more people & interest.About 999 New PROGRAMS a Month That's how you get people from Cancelling it.,,,,

I expected more Eminem, Snow, Vanilla Ice, and J-Roc (from Trailer Park Boys). Possibly also tracks off a Kidz Bop album...

So much Wiz Khalifa, and not even his best songs. I guess it's gotta be SFW.

I like the Rudimental song, but that's about it. The others I haven't heard, but assume are c***. Anyway, I have never, ever liked any music that has appeared in RAW games. The worst are the ear bleeding heavy metal "music", if you can call that awful noise music.

Thank god I was watching wresting either before or after his rap days. The Rock - Triple HHH rivalry was the peak of Wresting in my opinion. Edge/Christian vs The Hardy Boys vs Dudley Boys. Now it is just a bunch of characterless freaks.

I really don't know what's worse. Cena' so called "music", or his fake fighting. He is the sole reason I stopped watching wrestling in the mid 2000's.

Even true fans of hip-hop would still say this soundtrack is trash.

No point in even buying the game if you can't even use your own music for created wrestlers. That was the only part of the games that I ever cared about in the first place. And the "soundtrack" that they have listed here is nothing but a bunch of crap. Just like the GTA V soundtrack, they wasted way too much money on the royalties for crappy songs.

I hope we get that audio menu back this year, because I'll be turning almost that whole list off, and giving John Cena a few tables, for wasting all that royalty money. It doesn't affect my overall experience though.

Shorten that title to "Blame John Cena if you don't like WWE" and you have the way I feel about the company now. I quit watching because of him. They constantly say how great he is, but I just don't see it I honestly think he sucks. He's good at one thing, getting his ass kicked. His moves are very limited and sloppy, his character is just lame, and overall he's one of the worst wrestlers I've seen. I'm sorry but with some of the guys I grew up watching, Cena just seems like garbage.


I want to leave with a quote CM Punk said to Cena: "I hate this idea that you're the best, because you're not"

<< LINK REMOVED >> I remember a time when people touted Ric Flair's accomplishments, and they meant something. 16-time heavyweight champion? John Cena can make that claim now. Perhaps WWE would be more watchable if every friggin' Pay-Per-View didn't feature John Cena defending the belt, or fighting for the belt.

Seriously...it's like there's no one else on the roster but Cena, Randy Orton, and whoever the current "big bad" is. I had hopes for Sheamus, but he got demoted fairly quickly.

Rant's done now. If you made it through all of that, you deserve a reward.

...sadly, there is none.

@Yomigaeru @strife14467 Back in the day, there was variety. One event it'd be Stone Cold vs the Rock, then Stone Cold vs Mankind, then Mankind vs the Undertaker, then Undertaker vs Big Show vs Kurt Angle or what have you.


Not the same tool over and over every time.

Those were the good old days of wresting. I loved the attitude era. Now I can't even watch wwe for five minutes without changing the channel.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> The WWE just seems to crap all over wrestling history. I guess they want people to forget about when wrestling was actually entertaining so they can continue to try and push how great they want people to believe Cena is. Ric Flair, WOOOO! (sorry I just had to), he earned what he achieved and to this day could probably still wrestle better than Cena. You mention Orton, he used to be one of my favorites but even he is starting to get boring. The whole product is just stale.
