Oh it’s true. It’s damn true. We’re just a few days away from the release of WWE 2K18 and there’s already controversy.
This year everyone’s least favorite heel, Roman Reigns will be rated a 95 and you already know the internet is losing their shit over it.

In things that don't matter but still make me irrationally angry: Roman Reigns' stats rating in 2k18 is a 95, the highest in the game.

I've not sat and thought about it until now but Roman Reigns being the highest rating at 95 is actually rediculous #WWE2K18

Don’t get me wrong, Reigns is a beast (and The Guy) but should he be rated higher than his cousin The Rock who is a 93? I don’t think so.
Not only that, but Roman is also rated higher than Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker. They are both rated 93 as well, as is John Cena.
Finn Balor, Seth Rollins, Goldberg, and (1997) Stone Cold are rated at 92 followed by Daniel Bryan with a 91 and AJ Styles at 90.

I don’t know who’s making up these ratings, but if they’re anything like NBA 2K18 then you can expect a lot of athletes to be pissed.
Could Vince McMahon have something to do with 2K’s rating of Roman? We all know how controlling he can be and he’s been trying to shove Reigns down everyone’s throat for years now.
What about the legends like The Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, and Triple H? The list goes on and on and on so I don’t understand how 2K did the ratings this year.
Hopefully this year’s WWE 2K is better than the last couple of editions. From the looks of the screenshots, it feels realer than ever but we’ll have to wait and see the final product.
What are the chances that even though he’s the most hated, Roman Reigns will be the most used character online? I’m willing to bet on that!
WWE 2K18 drops next week on October 13th.
