With the full roster of WWE 2K23 now revealed, let's take a look at the wrestlers who are making their debuts and returns in WWE 2K23.

WWE 2K23 Roster: Wrestler Debuts and Returns in WWE 2K23

WWE 2K23's roster is going to be bigger than WWE 2K22's, not including wrestlers that were later on added through content updates from MyRISE. In spite of some wrestlers missing the cut, and in spite of many wrestlers since departing the company, the sheer amount of new wrestlers debuting or returning in WWE 2K23 will make it the biggest roster in a WWE 2K game ever.

* Wrestlers who are to be released as part of post-launch DLC.

There are still a couple of notable omissions from WWE 2K23's roster, albeit there have been some that have been alleviated by the post-launch DLC packs. With that being said, expect this list to continue to expand as we go nearer to the WWE 2K23 release date in March, and even after the release as updates would undoubtedly add more characters to play with, one way or another.
