AyearintheWWEcanfeellikealifetime.Oneminuteawrestlerismaineventing,awhilelater
andtheycantevengetontheshow.ThatspartlywhyitsrefreshingtogetanannualWWE2K
video game release, it reflects the changes in the WWE programming. The stars who were
considered the best rated talent a year ago are in some instances the weakest wrestlers on the
show today. There are guys who won all the time in the runup to WWE 2K14s release, who
nowadays lose every week in under three minutes. WWE 2K15 is going to have to reflect these
changes,soexpecttheingameratingssystemtolookverydifferentcometheOctoberrelease.
2K14rankeditswrestlersoutofahundred.Thetopleveltalent,thetelevisionmaineventers,were
mainly attributed to be a 90 plus. Some of those same names will struggle for the mid 80s this
time around! Some of 2K14s most difficultwrestlers to beat are going to need a serious
downgradingsoletsgetstraighttoit!

14.Christian
WWE 2K14 Rating: 86 WWE 2K15 Expected Rating: 82 Christian has had a miserable last 12
months,mainlyduetoinjuryissuesandlackofcreativepush.Heslightlygothiscareergoingagain
at the start of 2014, but a March concussion has since sidelinedthe Attitude Era star. In all
likelihoodhesnearretirementandhisbestdaysarefirmlybehindhim.2K14hadrankedChristian
as an upper mid carder, but even last year he was struggling for a firmly relevant role on WWE
television.Thisyearheisabsolutelyonthefringesofthecompanyand2K15willreflectthiswith
a relegated ranking. A lowly 82 rating seems fair. His role in the new game should be that of an

probablythe biggest loser on WWE television from the past year. In reflecting this, 2K15 will
dropDolphs rating to around the low eighties. He will become one of the very basic wrestling
characters. In all likelihood this could be Zigglers final game appearance; his contract expires at
theendof2014andwithhiscurrentsituationhemustbeconsideringhisoptions.

consideredoneoftheveryelitewrestlersonWWE2K14.OnlyJohnCenawasratedhigheroutof
the full time wrestlers. Is 2Ks high rating a fair reflection of Ortons talent? He was a WWE
ChampionasofSummerSlam2013andremainedatthetopofWWEscardsallthewayupuntil
WrestleMania 30. The thing is, Orton just isnt very exciting. His action is based on being a heel
rather than being the best. You certainly wouldnt say he was a tougher opponent than Brock
Lesnar.NeitherwouldyousayhesabetterwrestlerthanaCesaro(rated88lastyear).Takingthese
