The Best Wrestlers in WWE 2K15 Are…

We have already talked how to unlock all characters in WWE 2K15, but now it’s time to decide which are the best wrestlers in the game since we have so many to choose from and so little time to completely test them all out and especially master them.

The good thing about this year’s game is that we have a pretty decent line-up of characters and it doesn’t matter too much if you prefer the old school wrestlers or are a fan of the new generation: you’ll surely find a perfect character and get great results with them. And before we go on to check out my opinion on the best wrestlers in WWE 2K15, remember that it’s just an opinion and you might have better results with other players. But the ones below are certainly worth trying out!

Roman Reigns

This guy packs quite a punch and he’s one of the most powerful characters in the game. Pit him against the legends and he’ll do great with his flying Superman Punch and other moves.

Brock Lesnar

This guy might not have too much style, but he does compensate with brute force. He’s a powerhouse that will win you matches and swipe the floor with all his opponents, just as he did in real life with John Cena a while ago.

The Undertaker

This guy is a legend and there’s no doubt about it! WWE’s longest-tenured performer is also one of the best characters in WWE 2K15, with moves like his iconic chokeslam and the Tombstone piledriver ready to make the difference in any match.

A.J. Lee

We don’t have an awful lot of Divas to choose from in the game, but if you are to ask me, I’d certainly go for A.J. Lee, both in real life and in the game. She’s fast, she’s got some great moves and, well, she’s really good looking, so she’s definitely the best diva to play as in the game!

Hulk Hogan

My all time favorite wrestler, brother! He’s fortunately still great in the game and my number one choice for all those great childhood memories! He’s a real beast – extremely powerful and with great moves, and a top choice that can easily take out the modern monsters in the game.

So, here are my recommendations. Which are your best WWE 2K15 wrestlers?

How to Unlock All Characters in WWE 2K15


2K wants to make sure that if we want to get the chance and play as any of the characters available in WWE 2K15, we’ll work a bit to get them. And since some fan favorites are on the “locked” list, I am sure you are planning to unlock them as soon as possible. We’re here to tell you everything you need to know on how to unlock all characters in WWE 2K15 and enjoy the complete experience!

First of all, it’s worth mentioning that you sometimes need to meed different requirements based on the console you’re playing on (current gen or last gen), but overall, the golden rule of thumb is that the more you play, the more characters you will naturally unlock. Alternately, you can spend the $25 on the Season Pass DLC and automatically unlock all characters, plus the bonus Paige, minus the hidden unlockable ones.

Alternately, if you don’t want to spend the money, you can go the hard way to unlock these characters:

– if you are playing on a PS3 or Xbox 360, go to the Who Got NXT mode and complete each wrestler’s matches in order to unlock the playable character in the main game.
– on Xbox One & PS4, simply play your MyCareer in order to unlock the new wrestlers.

Apart from this method of unlocking extra characters in the game, you will automatically unlock as you play 18 hidden ones. We’re listing them below, and all you have to do to unlock these is to simply play through the game (they are not unlocked by DLC purchases):

1. Adrian Neville
2. Alberto Del Rio ’11
3. Batista ’03
4. Bo Dallas
5. Booker T
6. Chris Jericho ’02
7. CM Punk ’11
8. Corey Graves
9. Daniel Bryan ’12
10. John Laurinaitis
11. Kane ’02
12. Kevin Nash
13. Randy Orton ’04
14. Ric Flair
15. Rusev
16. Sami Zayn
17. Shawn Michaels
18. The Rock

There are indeed quite a few extra characters to unlock and you’ll have a lot of playing to do in order to get them all. I am sure you won’t mind, though!
