With just weeks until launch, 2K Games revealed the overall rating for The Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns, in WWE 2K23. The rating was posted by WWE 2K on social media for WWE fans and viewers to take a look at. For the most part, WWE fans agreed that Reigns’ rating was appropriate for the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion.
Since Visual Concepts took over development for Yuke’s, the WWE 2K series has seen some ups and downs, including the critically-panned WWE 2K20. With WWE 2K23 seen as a way for 2K Games and Visual Concepts to improve on the series going forward, the promotional period for the upcoming game is in full swing. As part of this, the developers started revealing the ratings for select wrestlers on the roster, with WWE legends such as Hulk Hogan getting an impressive 94 overall rating in WWE 2K23. However, The Big Dog received a higher overall rating than The Hulkster.
While Reigns has the highest overall rating that has been revealed so far, he is only three points ahead of the second-highest-rated wrestler. With an overall rating of 96, Becky Lynch is the highest-rated female wrestler in the game. During Lynch’s rating reveal, Lynch was told that only two male wrestlers, Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar, had a higher overall rating than her. At the time of writing, Lesnar’s rating in WWE 2K23 has not been revealed, so it remains to be seen how it will compare to Reigns’ rating.
Reigns had a 95 overall rating in WWE 2K22, which is a four-point jump from year to year. However, with a staggering 178 wrestlers to choose from in WWE 2K23, Visual Concepts has the unenviable task of rating each one of them. With only weeks to go until the game’s March 17 release day, only time will tell how many more ratings will be revealed prior to launch, and how many will be left for WWE 2K players to discover.
As far as the action in the ring, WWE’s next major event will be WrestleMania 39, which is scheduled for April 1 and 2. The show will be held at SoFi Stadium, the home of the NFL’s Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers. Between WWE 2K23 and WrestleMania, WWE fans will have plenty to look forward to in the coming weeks.
WWE 2K23 launches March 17 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
