Not a huge surprise considering 2K games does this every year but it’s a bit baffling as to why new and exciting superstars such as Shinsuke Nakamura will be available as DLC as opposed to being included in the base game by default, still not the least bit surprising as they seem to do it every year but one can wish to the way things were done in eras gone by,oh well maybe im wrong? But judging by the past enteries into the WWE 2K Series,this may very well seem to be the case.

WWE 2K17 releases on October 11th 2016 for the PS4, XBOX ONE, PS3 and XBOX 360 game consoles.
