WWE 2K17 DLC Characters: Legends, NXT, And New Era Stars Confirmed

By on

The first batch of WWE 2K17 DLC has been revealed. A ton of new characters will be downloadable, some of whom have never been in a WWE game before. It seems like the DLC will be a great mix of legends and NXT superstars. It’s pretty much everything a fan could want as DLC in a WWE game.

Some fans might lament at the lack of Bobby Roode, but that is out of 2K Games’ control. These DLC characters are a great addition to the game and makes the season pass a must-buy for fans of the series. Here is who the game?s official Twitter account has revealed.

New Era Stars

Let’s start with the modern superstars who were omitted from the disc roster. Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson, the most obvious picks for the WWE 2K17 DLC, have been confirmed. These two have been inconsistently booked since they arrived in the main roster, but they are still fan favorites. Fans can also expect a special entrance with AJ Styles since they were in The Club together.

Mojo Rawley has also been confirmed. The former NXT star recently made his way to the main roster as Zack Ryder’s tag team partner. Called the Hype Bros, the team has been one of the more energetic tandems in SmackDown Live. Overall, they?re good additions to the game.


Two popular NXT stars have been confirmed as WWE 2K17 DLC: Tye Dillinger and Austin Aries. Both superstars are considered top stars of the brand, each one having a solid fan base. The fact that they’re dynamite in the ring helps out too.

Austin Aries is an indie veteran with tons of experience. He should be a contender to Nakamura’s NXT title soon. Tye Dillinger’s infectious Perfect 10 gimmick has won fans over. Starting out as a villain, he has recently become a hero.


Finally, we have legends.?Kerry Von Erich, The Godfather, Papa Shango and Eddie Guerrero have been confirmed. The late Eddie Guerrero in particular has been in demand for a while. After appearing in WWE 2K14, he’s disappeared from games. His resurgence here should please many.

What could make the WWE 2K17 DLC news better? Apparently, this isn’t the final list yet. The game comes out on October 11. Those who pre-order the game can get early access to Goldberg. ?
