Is wrestling cool again? I’m going to say not yet, but it’s kinda close. I’ve always believed that wrestling games are subject to a weird dynamic. We only think wrestling games are ‘good’ when wrestling itself is seen as being ‘cool’. Therefore, as good as WWE 2k15 looks — and it looks really good — we might not be ready to love it quite yet.
Personally I think 2K has done a pretty good job in steering the good ship WWE since taking over the license. Their only real mistake with this trailer is using a Kid Rock song as the soundtrack.
Seriously? I know you want us to think it’s 1999, given that it was smack dab in the middle of the Attitude era — the most profitable era in wrestling history — but damn… you don’t need to subject us to terrible music from that time period.
Kid Rock? Really?
