WWE 2K17 is slated for an October 11 release date, and fans are excited. The game features a ton of new characters as well as a number of improved gameplay mechanics. However, there are some fans who are wondering who will have the highest superstar rating. While the answer to this is still unknown, the SummerSlam demo did reveal some of the ratings.
The ?Phenomenal One? has a pretty solid rating at 89, according to YouTube user Smacktalks. As far as game debuts go, it’s a solid rating. Some fans might complain about it since he just beat John Cena in SummerSlam, but it’s far from low. Either way, he’s a top-notch character.
Styles wasn’t the highest-rated character in the demo, but he will be a favorite when WWE 2K17 comes out. It’s almost surreal to see him in a WWE game for the first time.
Alberto Del Rio
In a surprising move, Alberto Del Rio is the lowest-rated character in the demo. He’s pretty low at 83, but he will likely be higher than other superstars. Compared with superstars like Zack Ryder or Sin Cara, he will likely surpass them in the ratings.
While he did beat John Cena in his return, he has lost a lot of momentum. He lost the US title to the high-flying Kalisto, and his affiliation with the League of Nations bombed hard. Maybe 83 isn’t inaccurate for him after all.
SmackDown’s WWE World Heavyweight Champion gets a solid 90 this year. It’s not a huge boost since he was an 89 in WWE 2K16, but it’s not inaccurate either. He’s picked up plenty of momentum lately, and his upcoming program with AJ Styles should be fantastic.
One has to wonder why he isn’t higher than 90 though. He is the WWE World Champion after all. Still, a 90 is nothing to scoff at. Plus, this is a demo, so it could change before the real game comes out.
Debuting in last year’s game with a 91 rating, Kevin Owens slid down a bit to 86. Some fans might be baffled since he has been a prominent member of the roster in recent weeks. He’s always been in the midcard though, which might explain why he’s lower this year.
Rollins is the highest-rated character in the demo, keeping his rating from last year at 93. He has been a consistent presence in the main event scene, so it seems fair to keep him high. Rollins may have lost to Finn Balor at SummerSlam, but he did beat Roman Reigns clean a few months ago.
WWE 2K17 is slated for an October 11 release on PS4, PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360. Fans who pre-order the game can get Goldberg. Those who pre-order the NXT edition can get three more characters aside from Goldberg. ?
