  1. Naomi looks a lot more better this year! Thanks to new engine this year! I wish she wore her yellow attire though. I love that attire. I’m glad she ain’t wearing that checker color attire?

    Maryse yes! ??Yes! ??Yes! ?? I swear to god i hope she is playable??

  2. I just want to see Naomi’s entrance and thank god they didn’t choose that ugly suit Naomi started her feel the glow gimmick with and Asuka and Ember Moon look amazing and I’m 100% sure Maryse won’t be playable because at her WM match she didn’t even perform a move so I mean

  3. Ok so right now we have a possible 19 playable women (18 if we don’t count Maryse). Still to be revealed is Bliss, Charlotte, Mella and Fox from the MR. With Mickie being in the game we can almost guarantee Lana will be in so that leaves us with 24. If they add any other women we’re lookin at almost 30 playable women!

    • i hoping Lana is Playable, her Entrance, Attire, and Finisher along i would hope will include her in the game disc but since they already got Lana model scanned already from 2k17 all they got do change her attire, hairstyle, put her entrance in the game, and moveset.
      i think she’ll be playable this year

  4. Asuka looks awesome. She’s wearing her Takeover: Orlando attire. The same event that Ember debuted her silver hair. Ruby Riot made her in ring debut at this event.. maybe it wasn’t too late for her after all…

  5. I love how everyone is excited for the new game. I’m happy for you guys. ? The last WWE game I purchased was SvR 2011, but I’ll always remember how exciting the roster reveals would be. I remember waking early every morning to check SVRUltimate’s YT channel to see which Superstar or Diva has been revealed with their entrance and finisher. The screenshots look nice too! It’s nice seeing they have updated attires. I remember THQ would always be a year behind with attires and Superstars/Divas. I remember SvR 2006 having the most outdated/bizarre Divas roster. ?

  6. I’m so excited for Ember, her entrance is a little off but its not too bad. I hope a bunch of her unique moves make it into the game as well. Thank god it seems Naomi is way better this year! Maryse also looks stunning and Asuka has my favorite attire. So far it’s been amazing, bring on Charlotte and the Iconic Duo (hopefully)!

    Edit: Mickie James too!

          • Oh i remember those days and they even had the same movesets but nowadays they make sure the women have their specific moves even if they only did it once. Like Brie getting her running facebuster and she only used that a few times or Naomi getting her headscissors ddt and she hasnt used it in forever. Shit they finally gave Fox her somersault legdrop and she only did it 3 times

      • I don’t think Emma will be copy and pasted. She’ll probably have her new boots and the attire she’s been wearing for weeks now that greenish blue one. Paige might be change to her Mania gear. As for the rest, I don’t know. I have feeling they might change trish’s attire and possibly tammy and lita. Eva, I feel will be wearing her last match gear.

          • I mean summer hasn’t done much so it’s understandable for her to be copy and pasted THIS year. But hopefully they just give her her Mania gear. I feel like the legends deserve updated gear. Paige will probably have mania gear same for Eva, possibly Brie or her fast lane gear. Tamina, I feel like would be the easiest gear to update just give her black gear with some rips and you get Tammy!

  7. Am i the only one who wants see what new stuff they added in WWE 2K18 Create A Wrestler mode cause mode needs most overhaul with new gear, shirts/tops, bottoms/skirts, knee Pads, shoes, Hairstyles, Fix Hair Dye feature applying Bright Colors, improve Create A Video, and maybe add Story Designer back in.

  8. So, I wonder who will be revealed with the Alexa, Charlotte, Nia, Dana, Jacqueline, Eva (?) group.

    Guessing we’ll get Beth Phoenix, The Iconic Duo and maybe Liv/Lana? Idk.

    I bet they’ll just use Mickie as Beth’s opponent. Unless they add Melina and we get the triple threat. ?

  9. Yessss!!!! Emeber and Naomi look awesome!!!! Naomi don’t really look like an update to me because I made in her 2k17 with that attire. And I do hope Maryse is playable! I’d love to put her in some fantasy feuds!!

  10. The roster is looking great. Ember Moon looks amazing. Her face is literally down to perfection. It looks exactly like her. The other photos also look great as well.

    Naomi’s face finally looks right. I swear she looked like someone else last year, it wasn’t even funny xD

  11. Nice Roster so Far, its shaping up to be a good year this year

  12. Naomi looks great wish it was a different attire I mean but you can always create one.

    Her having her hands up is throwing me off as it looks like her heel entrance. Hopefully shes getting ready to clap or something because honey.. 2 years in the row same entrance.

    They better have her running bulldog into the turnbuckle move because they didn’t add that. I really wanted her hair to curly again with the highlights at the bottom.

  13. I think Maryse is playable because if there’s (and I’m assuming there is) a Beth Phoenix story in the game she’ll be apart of it with one of her old attires, as will Mickie no doubt. Who else idk, Nattie, The Bellas and Foxy could play into it?

    • 2k has been focusing on I guess function over fashion. Like making the hair move realistically but at the cost the hair for talent looks crappy, thin and cheap. This year looks okay vs past years (2k15-17).

  14. Am I the only one who feels like Ember being billed from Dallas, Texas kind of detracts from her character. Like wouldn’t she have more mystique about her if she was billed from somewhere that aligned with who she portrays?

  15. I don’t think the Naomi model is bad, what kills is the flat expression. If a Superstar is usually smiling in their entrance, the devs should do their best to reflect that in their entrances in the games. Otherwise we have deadface Naomi and Bayley making everybody uncomfortable lmao

  16. It seems as though I may one of the only ones still on the fence about Nao. Why is she not smiling and this is supposed to be her entrance where she’s smiling like crazy? I hope this isn’t the only attire she has in the game, her green and black Backlash ’16 attire, her WM attire and the pink and yellow two piece she wears should be in it as well. But you know what? This just might be a still, so I’ll hold my tongue and the rest of my judgement until I see the entrance in itself.

    But YAS for Ember’s. I’m here for it.

  17. I’m so excited about this!!!! I literally have every PlayStation WWE game from WWF Smackdown to 2K17 and soon to be 2k18. I made a list of every game and all the playable women in each game is crazy to see the Women’s roster increase through the years of each game lol im very excited about this roster this will be the most women we’ve had in any wwe game!!! Ahhhhh

  18. I can’t believe we get Ivory this year + women from NXT, that’s sooooo cool. This game will have even larger women’s roster which is amazing!

    The fact that Maryse is said to be a playable character, omgosh the vibes ?
