Savage is confirmed to be in the game. Since Liz never wrestled, she could be included as a manager character, like Ricardo Rodriguez is for Alberto del rio in wwe 13

2K had some special showcase today where they revealed the '30 Years of Wrestlemania' roster.

Some of the highlights and surprises amongst the legends are King Kong Bundy, Batista, Diesel, Razor Ramon, Yokozuna, and Goldberg (!!)

For hardcore students of the game and great wrestling, the roster also includes Flair, Steamboat, Savage, and DiBiase.

And, if universe mode is any similar to WWE '13, this likely means you could essentially create WCW with Flair, Hogan, Hall, Nash, and Goldberg as the anchors. This also suggests that a 'Monday Night Wars' theme is likely coming in a future edition of the game, especially if they can finally ink Sting to a deal.

Sadly, no Piper, Sid, Mr. Perfect, or Demolition. No word on ancillary characters, like Liz or Heenan, but maybe they'll be in there in some form.

The remaining WWE '13 roster will probably be released soon and will include all the current stars and maybe some other legends, but I have no idea, lol.

Below is the list (I've also taken out the doubles, but will note them as I go along w. an 'x2') ...

Alberto Del Rio
Andre the Giant
Batista
Big Show (x2)
Bret Hart
Brock Lesnar (x2)
Chris Jericho (x2)
CM Punk
Diesel
Edge
Goldberg
Hulk Hogan (x2)
JBL
John Cena (x2)
Kane
King Kong Bundy
Mick Foley
Randy Orton
'Macho Man' Randy Savage
Razor Ramon
Ric Flair (x2)
Ricky Steamboat
Sergeant Slaughter
Shawn Michaels (x2)
'Stone Cold' Steve Austin
Ted DiBiase
The Miz
The Rock (x2)
Triple H (x2)
Ultimate Warrior
Undertaker (x2)
Yokozuna

Just watched the preview video and here's some additional details ...

- Big John Studd is also in the game

- the graphics for Flair, DiBiase, Steamboat, Razor Ramon, and Hogan are pretty damn awesome

- there's a classic Hogan and a Hollywood Hogan

Here's the video - http://youtu.be/hPp9Rpmsl58

There are some nice suprises in there (Goldberg, Razor Ramon, Batista) but overall a very good roster. Just like every year they missed out on some good people but I'm getting this game for sure. October can come soon enough.

Well, since they haven't announced Piper but a lot of folks seem to think he will still be in the game (because an audience member in the game is wearing a Piper t-shirt, which is a pretty strong clue), I have a feeling that the roster will also include the current WWE roster (for the most part) as well as a handful of legends, plus additional legends and stuff that will be available via DLC.

I suspect that we'll see at least a half dozen additional legends and maybe even 10 to 12, so I'd hold off on passing judgement until we know everything and everyone that is in the game.

Yeah I'm holding out hope they add Owen Hart. Seems highly unlikely but there's little hope. The Steiner brothers would be awesome to play with too.
