Is Sami Zayn almost healthy? He'd be a nice face addition to the roster...

Final Thoughts

Simply put, WWE 2K16 is a mixed bag. The gameplay, at times wants to be really good, but I am always brought back to reality by something that is equally bad. This weird dichotomy within the game has you screaming, “YES! YES! YES!” and then you realize Hulk Hogan is actually the third man and you are throwing trash into the ring in disgust.

The gameplay is rather average thanks to the issues I can find. The new additions are great, but the technical and balancing issues are going to wear on people over time (just like reversals last year). The modes are decent, but there is nothing in this game that will keep you playing for months unless you can overlook the obvious shortcomings in Universe or MyCareer.

I struggled with my final rating for WWE 2K16 because of this Jekyll and Hyde type of performance. I suppose those looking for the good and willing to ignore the bad will find plenty of positives, but those who care about a game that is functionally sound will find plenty to be disappointed in here as well.

WWE 2K16 feels unpolished and incomplete on one hand, but on the other hand it can be fun and even deep as well. At the end of the day, it’s above average, and I can only hope this is the last year the series moves sideways.

Score: 6.5 (Above Average)

Edit: The original incorrectly stated there were no crowd chants. This appears to have been a bug in my copy (I was originally missing commentary as well). After doing the same procedure a second time the crowd chants did appear -- so I updated the review text to reflect that.

 

If a 6.5 is above average for their scoring grade, then im still ok with purchasing

there is NO reason that a sports game in 2015 doesn't have tendencies/CPU logic for each individual player in the game. 2K WWE does NOT have it. Damn Fire Pro Wrestling on SNES had it. I can't mess with them until I can see a distinction in wrestling style between the Big Show and John Cena.

 

It is disrespectful honestly

2K has the worst ratings in terms of superstart to jobber ratings. There isn't much variation AT ALL

Seth Rollins Injury and what It Means, Backlund on Ross Report Podcast, RINGSIDE TKTS for @HOBDallas still on sale at Ticketmaster.com

Greetings all! Thanks for the visit. Even though all our VIP tickets for our three Wrestlemania weekend shows at the House of Blues in Dallas are sold out there are PLENTY of great seats still available starting at $20 on sale now at ticketmaster.com.  We will have shows, with surprise guests, before, at 4 pm, and after the WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, at 11 pm, on Saturday April 2. The American Airlines Center is only a few blocks away and an easy walk from the ACC to the @HOBDallas. We will also have a show with Q&A's, stories, etc with another special guest after Monday Night Raw on Monday April 4 at 11 pm also at the House of Blues. www.ticketmaster.com has your tickets waiting so please plan on joining me in Dallas WM32 weekend.

WWE Champion Seth Rollins is going to be out of action likely around 9 months after blowing out his knee including his ACL. Rollins will be stripped of the title as I understand it and a tournament will be held to crown a new, WWE World Champion which should be positioned as a HUGE deal within the WWE. When a bad break occurs within the pro wrestling business it always opens the door for, at times, the most unlikely individual to step up and assume the mantle of the company. How the creative minds address this issue is going to be pivotal including who actually are entered into the tournament which I assume will be a single elimination format whereby the winners advance and the losers take a seat much akin to the NFL playoffs or March Madness in the NCAA hoops tourney. That puts a sense of urgency on every match which should , by all rights, create some excellent TV.

The key to having a great tournament is to have all he talents who should be in the tournament actually in it, except Lesnar IMO, and to facilitate some 'upsets' that we fans did not see coming.

Consider this: Rollins comes to the ring on RAW to give up the title. Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose are both there, originally at the Authority's surprise,  to realistically show some respect to their maligned, misguided former teammate but Reigns and Ambrose end up assaulting Rollins at the bequest of the Authority who feel that Rollins has let them down due to his injury that he suffered in Dublin this week.

It's the law of the jungle where by only the strong survive which is closer to fact than fiction when it comes to the sports entertainment biz.  

Will the Authority stack the deck in the tournament by making one bracket weaker than the other? Will the Authority influence the officiating? Will Lesnar be a participant? I'd say hell, no to that one.

I've seen these calamities work out well in the past if the creative forces are willing to blow up the status quo and think outside the box to put even more clout on the WWE Title and to put talents in a position to become more relevant and hopefully, make some new stars and create some new rivalries via this process.

By the Authority's henchmen doing the dirty deed to Rollins, Seth is essentially a crippled man at this point in time, turns fan favorite and his journey to regaining his health and career can be documented nicely on TV which builds valued anticipation for Seth's return perhaps as early as Summer Slam. Think HHH a few years ago and his amazing ret to action at MSG was quite the moment.

With the Authority's help, Reigns sells out, becomes the exalted pawn of HHH & Stephanie which then leads to Lesnar, who was excluded from the tournament, entering rhe Royal Rumble and winning it sitting up fan favorite Lesnar vs. villain and Authority rep Reigns at WrestleMania Texas.

If one wanted to to, Ambrose could think that he was in on the plan only to be assaulted by both Roman Reigns and HHH to make Dean Ambrose a hot, fan favorite and an instant rival of Reigns and the anti Authority fan favorite ala Stone Cold with which I think the fans would gravitate.

Or...another totally new talent ala a Samoa Joe, Finn Balor, etc could shock the world and win the top title in the game. This might be the most popular option among some fans as it would create a new champion, preferably a fan favorite, who would have the Authority on his case which might freshen up the authority figure storyline that's been around for years.    

As I've said many times, there is always  more than one right way to get something done properly or effectively when it comes to booking. It's always a matter of presentation, execution and putting talents in the best possible position to succeed. by embellishing their strengths and concealing  their weaknesses.

There are SO many ways that WWE can come out ahead on this unfortunate matter.

Finally, the last thing that I would do is to put John Cena right back in the mix. John deserves some time off and WWE deserves to put some of their other talents in line to grow and to become main eventers. This entire situation is one of fate and now it's up to WWE to reshuffle the deck and hopefully come out of it with a winning hand where more than one talent is advanced.

I had a great day in Memphis Wednesday, aside from hideous travel delays coming home,  doing some more WWE 2K16 work with Jerry Lawler. King is just fine after being involved in a head on car accident where, as I understand it, the driver of the other car may well have been texting. Jerry's girlfriend did not escape unscathed but is convalescing at home and we wish her a speedy recovery. Both of them are lucky as this car crash could have been deadly.

My conversation with Bob Backlund on the Ross Report that's available now at podcastone.com, iTunes and right here on the site on the homepage is getting great reviews. Bobby is brutally honest yet amazingly positive on how he leads his life and how he handled the negative aspects of the pro wrestling biz back in the day. Plus, because so many asked about Mark Bagwell's recent comments about me on the Steve Austin Show Podcast, I address that matter as well.  I also give you a glimpse on who's on my first pass of 2016 WWE HOF Inductees.

The Ross Report is a FREE podcast  and if you subscribe for FREE at iTunes you won't miss a show and they will be automatically downloaded into the device of your choice every Tuesday night at 9 ET.

Q&A's elsewhere here on the site are updated.

I'd love to work with  Bill Simmons on the Andre the Giant documentary that he's doing for HBO.

We got some quality work done today on our autobiography.

www.wweshop.com and www.americansoda.co.uk have JR's products in stock and ready for immediate home or business delivery as the Holidays approach.

Check out my pal Taz's show now with streaming video at TazShow.com. It airs weekdays from 7am-9am ET.

If you are coming to Dallas for Wrestlemania Texas please include us in your plans.www.ticketmaster.com tickets starting at $20 for all three of our shows. @HOBDallas is a great venue, close to the American Airlines Center and features plenty of great food and libations.

Curious to see if I will be asked to be interviewed for the Ric Flair 30 for 30 that's being produced as we speak. If not, why?

Have a great day and BTW I went 9-1 on my Fox Sports college football picks last week. Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn occasionally.

Boomer Sooner!
