Make way for the Hall of Famers in WWE2K16

These days, DLC content feels like a cash grab with minimal enhancements that probably should have been included with the game in the first place. 2K Sports is making the WWE 2K16’s latest DLC definitely more of an essential addition for old school wrestling fans from the 80s and early 90s including one match-up I still can’t believe made it to the game.

 

  • 2015 Hall of Fame Showcase ($9.99 value)
    • Playable matches include:
      • “Macho Man” Randy Savage vs. Jake “The Snake” Roberts;
      • Rikishi vs. The Rock;
      • Alundra Blayze vs. Paige;
      • Larry Zbyszko and Arn Anderson vs. Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat and Dustin Rhodes
      • Tatsumi Fujinami vs. Ric Flair;
      • The Bushwhackers (Butch Miller and Luke  Williams) vs. The Natural Disasters (Typhoon and Earthquake);
      • The Outsiders (Kevin Nash and Scott Hall) vs. Harlem Heat (Booker T and Stevie Ray);

My favorite naturally is the Arn Anderson/Larry Zbysko vs. Ricky Steamboat and Dustin Rhodes match as that provides two more members of The Dangerous Alliance along with the previously included Ravishing Rick Rude and Stunning Steve Austin. Time to get that Beautiful Bobby Eaton made so we can have the full set.

I’m pretty shocked we’re seeing Fujinami vs Flair. That was a classic match-up and it’s a match that has nothing to do with the Attitude Era, which is why I’m fully supporting Ric Flair as the showcase wrestler for WWE 2K17.

You can grab this new set on Feb. 23

    Good to see a younger Flair in the game too.

    I’d love the next game to feature either the best factions or a war of the great tag-teams. This addition is pretty cool though.

    Yes, definitely better than post Evolution ready to retire Flair 🙂

    That’s a fun idea too. I hope next year’s version offers something a little different.

    This is gonna be a stupid question, but are those wrestlers only for use in those specific matches? Or can I use Larry Zbyzsko against the whole roster?

    Either way, these are some pretty fantastic matches.

  • Jeffrey Lyles

    No such thing. You can use all these guys against everyone so you can have a Dangerous Alliance including Larry Z battling The Shield for example.

  • Scott S.

    Well that’s just fantastic. I can’t wait to get back home and play.
