WWE 2K23's Growing Roster Has Almost 200 Superstars So Far

Legends, icons, and influencers are ready to step into the WWE 2K23 ring.


Like previous games in the series, WWE 2K23 will have a sizable roster of superstars and legends to play as. The full list of available superstars include roster regulars such as Gunther, Drew McIntyre, and Sami Zayn, while dozens of other WWE superstars who haven't received much screentime lately have also made the cut. For nostalgic fans of sports entertainment, you'll be able to once again step into the ring as heavyweight icons like Booker T, Triple H, and Stone Cold Steve Austin.

Where things get interesting is with the selection of wrestlers that are traditionally locked away behind a DLC paywall. For WWE 2K23, the first DLC pack is focused purely on one of the most star-studded rosters of rookies to ever graduate from Ohio Valley Wrestling and includes Brock Lesnar, John "The Prototype" Cena, Randy Orton, and Dave Bautista when he was known as Leviathan. All four men became huge stars in WWE when they joined the RAW and Smackdown rosters in 2002, holding multiple title reigns and headlining Wrestlemania as main event attractions.

Meanwhile, Bad Bunny will be available as a preorder bonus, bringing his high-flying style to the ring. The performer has appeared several times in a WWE ring in the year, and has earned rave reviews for his ability to work with WWE performers and put on a great match. WWE games usually have several of these DLC packs available throughout the year, with last year's WWE 2K22 offering superstars from the past such as Rikishi, Doink the Clown, and Rob Van Dam alongside more current faces.

WWE 2K23 launches on March 17 and features John Cena as this year's cover star. The leader of the Cenation stars in 2K Showcase Mode, but interestingly, players will be stepping into the ring as one of several opponents who tried to end the legend of Big Match John. Alongside that story mode, you can also check out a preview of how WarGames matches introduce exciting new options to WWE 2K23.
