Paul Heyman is the mastermind behind the popular ECW promotion in the ’90s. He has admitted that he wants a former ECW name to be in the WWE 2K17 roster, but it isn’t who you think it should be.
During an interview with Gamesradar, Heyman admits that he wants Joey Styles to be in the actual wrestling roster of WWE 2K17. The main reason he wants him in the game is to see him get beat up by Brock Lesnar.
He said: “I would choose Joey Styles. Why? Because I would like to see Brock Lesnar ‘F5’ Joey Styles. I’d love to hear what it sounds like when you’re in midair and you’re coming crashing down to the mat and you hear, “Oh-myyyyyyy-God!”. Crash”
Funnily enough, Joey Styles himself tweeted a few months ago that he would love to feature in WWE 2K17. However, he wants to be in the game as a commentator and not as a wrestler. It’s unlikely 2K Games are going to add Joey Styles just for Brock Lesnar to beat him up.
As of right now, the WWE 2K17 roster consists of John Cena, Goldberg, Sasha Banks and The Ultimate Warrior. WWE 2K17 comes out on October 11th, 2016.
