Hey guys got this idea from the WWE 2K15 announcement article and it looks like we have quite a few wrestling fans here.

So I figured we can talk about anything wrestling here like our favorite wrestlers, matches PPVs etc.

So I was I am wondering who will be on the cover for 2K15, my co worker is thinking that Sting might be on it since he is now part of the WWE but honestly I think it my be either Daniel Bryan.  What do you guys think?

Daniel Bryan was on the alternate cover of 2K14 but I still feel he will be in the running for 2K15. I don't see Sting being on the cover even if the rumors of him signing with WWE are true. That said just having him in the game would be awesome.

The Wyatt Family or The Shield would make for a pretty cool cover...

As for the actual WWE, I'm next expecting much out of the next PPV Payback. A couple rematches from Extreme Rules and there will sadly be no Daniel Bryan.

If Sting is indeed with WWE then it would be a great time to roll him on out and spark some interest.

I think if anything Sting has a legends contract like Nash, Xpac or Edge.  Mainly so they can use their likeness in games, maybe a DVD or two and some appearances not so much in ring stuff.  Would be awesome though to see a Taker Sting match next WM.

I mean don't get me wrong I love The Undertaker but I hope WM 30 was his last match. He looked old and done before the match even started. As someone that literally grew up watching the guy, I found it painful to watch.

At this point I feel like Sting vs Undertaker would just end up being a disappointment.

Rasslin'!

@Tasuki - Sting hasn't signed a contract with WWE. He's only appeared in a couple of interviews for the WWE Network.

Still, I'd like to see Sting vs. Taker at WM (as much as I doubt it'll happen), if only for the awesome angle it would produce and how hot the crowd would be for the contest.

Honestly, I'm not looking forward to WWE 2K15 in the slightest. The series is beyond stale, and it needs a major overhaul. Engine, graphics, gameplay... Everything needs to be dumped and remade, IMO. Even the TNA game from 2007 looks miles better than 2K14.

All they really have to do is update the graphics and go back to using the control scheme from the great N64 wrestling games and they would have a winner.

True, but people have said this for years and the developers don't want to do it. Sometimes the wheel doesn't need to be re-invented to have a great game.

@Kage_88:  I dont know about that I have seen on their site pictures of the older "pre-crow" Sting as well as I heard that a Bluray is coming out here in September.  Sometimes they dont announce when they signed some of the older guys to a legends contract. 

Then again it could be Sting as well he might just want to fade away from the business and doesn't want the big deal coming if news of him signed with WWE came out.  His last couple of matches in TNA looked really weak I mean watching him was as sad as watching Taker during the Taker/Brock match.

If he appears as a character in 2K15 then we will know if he is signed with WWE.

@Tasuki - That's definitely possible.

There have been so many conflicting reports regarding Sting's WWE status. I actually do think he'll show up on WWE TV eventually. He said in a recent interview he's been watching RAW intently, and has stated in the past that he'd like to face Undertaker at Wrestlemania.

@Kage_88:  Yeah I have heard that too but as you said there are so many conflicting reports of him signing. 

Here's my view on it. (This might be a long post so I am warning now if it is)

Sting has said in the past that he didn't sign with the WWE (especially after WCW was sold) cause he felt that WWE wouldn't be able to portray the Sting character right.  Hence why he went with TNA after his WCW contract ran out.  Well if he is done with in ring activities either due to his own choice or a doctor or whatever he doesn't really need to worry about that.  If he wants to sit back and make money off of the Sting character due to DVDs or appearances in games he can do that with easy in the WWE.  Right now TNA is in such a financial mess who knows if they can offer someone like Sting that.  He can still be a part of the industry without participating in the ring with WWE.  So I can see him going with that.   I mean look at how many legends they have under contract yet we don't see them in the ring.  Mick Foley, Hulk Hogan, Shawn Michaels, Bret Hart, Kevin Nash and the list goes on.

I like this thread.

Push Ziggler.

That is all.


Totally agree Ziggler needs a big push.  I remember a few years ago he was starting to go somewhere but then pffffft nothing.  Not quite sure if he was injured or had some kind of backstage problem or what but  yeah they need to get him going again.

Of course I said the same thing about Wade Barrett a few months ago and now look at the push he got.  Hopefully Ziggler isn't too far behind.

Ziggler just had a great match with freaking Batista of all people on Smackdown. You would think that it would open some eyes of the powers that be but it won't. The guy has a good look he puts on great matches and is decent on the mic.

I don't know what else the guy has to do?

Funaki!!!

INDEED.

In regards to Ziggler, I think the reason why he's in the doghouse is because he said something in an interview last year that pissed WWE off. I'm not sure what it was, though.

This was really good. Charlotte vs Natalya was one of the best Diva matches I have seen in along time. I can't pick a favorite between Sami Zayn vs Tyler Breeze or Adrian Neville vs Tyson Kidd both were outstanding.
