    WWE 2K18 Current Women's Roster Update Checklist (Potential Spoilers)

    If 2K do what they have done over the past two years, the whole current main roster at the cutoff date (including post-Wrestlemania call-ups) will make it into the game unless there are reasons beyond their control, followed by the most popular of the NXT roster (last year was the first time).

    This thread is an attempt to track any changes to the wrestlers' names, attire, entrance theme, tron and motions (and so on) so we all can figure out what could make it or what we'll have to update ourselves when the game comes out.

    Below you'll find the current female roster for both the main roster and NXT (according to Wiki the weekend after Wrestlemania). If you see any changes from WrestleMania onwards, feel free to note them here and I'll get them added to this opening post. However, be careful of spoilers. Just because the title says there's the potential for them, doesn't mean they're allowed here without the tags or warnings. If it hasn't been a week yet, it might be worth waiting until a week has passed.

    The men's thread for this is here.

    2. Bayley
    3. Charlotte Flair

    This thread isn't for the Legends, so from the list in the opening post you think that only Eva Marie won't make it from the main roster, and only 5 from the 9 NXT women listed will make it?

    Really hope they'll put Lana as a playable character. Beth and Maryse most probably dlc. I don't see Eva, Alundra and Brie either being carried over.

    She wrestled on a wrestlemania so I don't see why they don't make lana playable.

    Of the RAW and SDL lists in the OP, I reckon there's a good chance we'll get everyone... even if a couple (thinking specifically Lana and Maryse) are only available as managers.

    As for NXT, that's where I'm not sure. We got more in 2K17 than 2K16 (which wasn't hard, admittedly), so I hope that's something that becomes a trend.

    She's actually been working NXT house shows recently, she has one match at WrestleMania. With Rusev being out for a few months and Lana getting drafted to Smackdown there's a chance we may see her in the ring in the near future.

    Yeah maybe they think the immersion or illusion will be broken but she has expressed many times that she wants to wrestle. Unfortunatly for her it's not the nikki bella era any more and women have been busting their butts wrestling just as hard as men. I doubt the wwe will ever want to go back to the mix of bra and panties girls vs the good wrestlers such as litat or trish mix.

    Still it's a game where we can have an eddie vs seth so immersion is gone already for those that are just realist with no imagination.

    Isn't she set to start wrestling on Smackdown soon? I'd think she'd be more likely next year than this year.

    As long as they include all the current women and most of the NXT women, throw in a few legends and I'll be happy

    Billie Kay & Peyton Royce are a tag team.

    SAnitY has Nikki Cross in it. Assuming that 2K18 has the no men and women in stables problem in Universe Mode then I can see Alexander Wolfe, Killian Dain, Eric Young [Leader] and Sawyer Fulton as Universe's SAnitY stable while Exhibition's SAnitY stable is Alexander Wolfe, Killian Dain, Eric Young [Leader] and Nikki Cross.

    I wonder... in 2K18, will Maryse suffer the same as Lana in 2K17?
    Having a match at wrestlemania but still only being put in as a manager. It'd be a shame if they did... hopefully though, WhatsTheStatus could do his thing!

    I could see that happening to Maryse, yeah, even though she (unlike Lana) has a full stint on the main roster as a wrestler. I imagine this is one of the things that is set out and gets final approval (or disapproval) from the WWE themselves.

    I feel like she [Maryse] was set for 2K17.

    There used to be a taunt in WWE'13-16 called French Beauty, which was named Maryse in Svr10-WWE12. Now in WWE2K17, French Beauty has been renamed Maryse 1. I don't see why she couldn't get put in. All of her moves besides French TKO are in 2K17. I'd love to see her in one last time!

    And she'd have been back for nearly 2 years by the time 2K18 is released... fingers crossed man.

    That might well be the case. I'd love for her to be playable again, I've always liked her.

    The talk of the whole idea of the female superstars as wrestlers and/or managers makes me wonder if we'll get a specific Alicia Fox manager to go with Noam Dar...
