Last year's video game featured current United States Champion AJ Styles on the cover, and featured a massive playable talent roster including stars from Raw and Smackdown, as well as NXT. The pre-order bonus playable character was Ronda Rousey, who was amidst an impressive rookie year in WWE.
Talents who made their debuts in WWE 2K19 included Kairi Sane, Tyler Bate, Ali, Velveteen Dream, Pete Dunne, Adam Cole and more.
With the announcement of WWE 2K20 looming in the distance, let's take a look at 10 stars who will likely make their debuts in this year's game. As a bonus, we will predict who might land the cover of this year's game, which has featured the likes of Brock Lesnar and Seth Rollins.
One of WWE NXT's hottest acquisitions in the past year has been Matt Riddle.
The former UFC and EVOLVE star made his NXT debut at last year's NXT Takeover Brooklyn event, and has since become a dominant force in the ring for NXT with his unique brand of offense and in-ring style.
Most recently, Riddle challenged Velveteen Dream for the NXT North American Championship at NXT Takeover New York, but was unsuccessful in his bid for the title. Not only did Riddle lose the match to Dream, but he also lost his unbeaten streak in NXT which had been intact since he debuted with the brand. Riddle's participation at NXT Takeover Toronto has yet to be announced, but he will likely compete at the big event next month.
Riddle would make an excellent addition to the WWE 2K20 roster as he brings with him a playable character which is very different in both look and playability from other characters in NXT and WWE.
