Is Brock Lesnar in WWE 2K24?

WWE 2K24 boasts an extensive roster of WWE superstars spanning both past and present eras, prompting inquiries about the inclusion of Brock Lesnar in the game.

Lesnar, a seven-time WWE champion, has been a fixture in 2K’s WWE game series since 2011. However, his current absence from the WWE roster due to recent allegations has cast doubt on his presence in the upcoming WWE game.

Thankfully, there is now an official confirmation regarding Brock Lesnar’s status in WWE 2K24. Let’s delve into the details.

Is Brock Lesnar in the WWE 2K24 roster?

No, Brock Lesnar is not part of the playable roster in WWE 2K24. This was confirmed upon the revelation of the complete WWE 2K24 roster on Feb. 21, where Lesnar’s absence was conspicuous.

Lesnar’s exclusion from WWE 2K24 generated significant discussion among fans prior to the roster reveal. His removal from 2K’s mobile game, WWE Supercard, and discreet replacement on the cover of the 40 Years of Wrestlemania edition hinted at his potential omission.

Given Lesnar’s history with WWE and his past appearances on game covers, it’s plausible that he was initially slated for WWE 2K24, but his implication in recent allegations against WWE founder Vince McMahon likely led to his removal from the roster.

Allegations against McMahon, including sexual trafficking and a lawsuit from former WWE employee Janel Grant, allege McMahon’s dissemination of explicit content without consent. According to the Wall Street Journal, in July 2021, McMahon reportedly directed Grant to create personalized explicit content for a WWE superstar identified as Lesnar by WSJ.

While WWE has yet to address Lesnar’s situation, his last appearance was in August 2023, where he faced Cody Rhodes at SummerSlam. Anticipated to return during Royal Rumble in January, Lesnar’s absence may be linked to the allegations implicating McMahon.

With Lesnar missing from the WWE 2K24 roster, it’s improbable that his matches will feature in the Showcase mode, which highlights iconic Wrestlemania clashes. However, the status of Lesnar’s signature move, the F5 finisher, as an option for created characters remains uncertain.
