Following the complete update of the WWE 2K23 Roster Page with the Women featured as playable characters on-disc, we began investigating the Superstars missing from the current WWE Roster and the Superstars eliminated from the previous main WWE game, WWE 2K22.
The WWE 2K23 Roster on the disc is strong; it includes a number of superstars making their debuts, including Nikkita Lyons as well as some much-welcomed returns, including Lita and The Bella Twins.
There will be 187 characters available on disc on launch day, but managers, some alternate versions, and DLC have yet to be revealed. Due to various considerations like prominence in television programming, time restraints, or other issues, not every WWE wrestler is ultimately included in the game each year.
We examine all the Women missing from WWE 2K23 or who have been eliminated compared to WWE 2K22 in this article.
Remember that WWE 2K23, similar to last year, will feature 5 different DLC Packs as part of its proper Downloadable Content offering. In the list of Superstars below, we’ve added a note for any Superstars who, in our opinion, stand a good chance of being released as DLC at a later time.
