When WWE 2K17 comes out later this year, there?s a good chance that a number of roster members from WWE 2K16 will be returning to the game. Some of them will have much better stats than last year, while others? will be lowered a bit due to their position in the card.Judging from what happened in the past year or so, here are the superstars who deserve decreased ratings for WWE 2K17.
?The face that runs the place? is currently the highest-rated character in WWE 2K16, with a 96 rating. While Cena is still a draw and a main event player, he probably deserves a lower rating than Brock Lesnar, who utterly destroyed him in Summer Slam 2014.
Cena should still have a great rating in WWE 2K17, around 93 or 94. He should still be a force to be reckoned with but not the best character in the game.
While he?s improved in the ring, the former Prime Time Player member doesn?t deserve a high 87 rating just yet. In WWE 2K16, O Neil?s stats made him better than Dolph Ziggler, Chris Jericho, Neville, Ryback and Luke Harper, all of whom are superior to the former football player.
He has improved, and he even has decent mic skills. However, his lack of television time ? even before his suspension ? and major feuds should keep him at around 84 or 85 at best.
Many fans wondered how the world?s largest athlete managed to get a 91 rating in WWE 2K16. He was higher than Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose, despite losing plenty of television matches before the game came out.
Big Show is still a valuable player in the main roster, but he?s hardly a main eventer anymore. The former world champion should have a solid 87 in WWE 2K17.
Poor Rusev. In 2014 the Bulgarian Superstar was on top of the world, with a year-long undefeated streak and the WWE US Championship in his waist. Ever since he lost to John Cena in Wrestlemania 31 things haven?t been the same for the superstar.
He participated in a poorly received love quadrangle angle with Dolph Ziggler, Summer Rae and his real-life fiance Lana, before the storyline was dropped after news of their engagement was made public by TMZ. Currently he?s in the League of Nations stable with Sheamus, Alberto del Rio and King Barret, all of whom lose on a frequent basis.
Rusev shouldn?t be much higher than 85 in WWE 2K17, unless a drastic change in direction is made for the Bulgarian Brute.
