Take a quick look through the upcoming WWE 2K14 roster and you'll be hard-pressed to find many flaws. 

Ultimate Warrior, retro Undertaker, retro Rock, "Hollywood" Hulk Hogan, Goldberg, retro Ric Flair, Yokozuna, The Great Khali—it's hard to get much better than that, and that's just the tip of the iceberg.

Moreover, the most recent gameplay trailer, which shows classic and modern superstars alike in action, should only further increase the anticipation for the new game:

Just take my money, already. 

Still, there's always room to nitpick. Mostly due to timing issues, there are some notable exclusions from the game's roster.

Let's take a look at a few who we hope get added soon after the game is released on Oct. 29. 


Wyatt Family

The Wyatt family has yet to show much of anything inside the ring since debuting a couple of months ago, and their momentum has slowed considerably, but it's difficult to ignore the allure of their character. 

Whether or not it translates to the virtual world, the Wyatt family makes up one of the most unique trios we have seen in quite some time. They are creepy and gripping, and their entrance and demeanor make for good entertainment. 

Even if they aren't great wrestlers in the game, people will have lots of fun using them. 


Rob Van Dam

Not only is Rob Van Dam very popular among the WWE universe, but his style would be extremely fun to play with in the virtual world. Even at the age of 42, RVD flies around the ring, exhibiting an impressive blend of athleticism and high-flying ability. 

Those kind of attributes translate perfectly to video games. 

"One of a Kind" is rumored to be at the end of his current contract, but that shouldn't stop 2K Sports from adding the fan favorite.  



Goldust was only recently inserted back in the WWE program with the "corporation" vs. the Rhodes family storyline, but it's enough reason to find him a spot in the game. 

The Bizarre One is another unique character who many would simply love to control in a video game, but unlike the Wyatt Family, he also has a lot of history that makes him an alluring addition for those hoping for a little bit of nostalgia. 


The Usos

For anyone looking to take part in tag-team matches, The Usos are going to be a must have. 

Like Van Dam, their athletic, high-wire, scintillating style will make them fun in a video game, and the fact they are one of the only "real" tag-teams left in the WWE should also make them an enticing option. 

What we mean by that is that they aren't just randomly tossed together like many of the current duos—they are twin brothers who dress the same and have a coordinated entrance. They are a real team. 

There are a lot of Usos fans out there, so this would be a smart addition to an already terrific roster.
