With WWE 2K23 not too far away, 2K Games has begun the announcement of the annual rankings for the WWE Superstars. While these rankings seem to be more of a popularity ranking than anything else, it’s something die-hard WWE 2K fans jump on every year.
The following known rankings come from WWE 2K23‘s official Twitter account and the official roster ranking reveal livestream hosted by WWE Superstar Xavier Woods on his UpUpDwnDwn Youtube channel (You can see the video below). The Outerhaven will do it’s best to update this article as more rankings are revealed, so come on back daily to see what’s changed.
Love’em or Hate’em, here are the known rankings for the male WWE Superstars as of writing:
Factoids from these reveals:
Top Superstar: Roman Reigns (99)
Lowest Superstar: R-Truth (72)
Top Legend: The Rock (96)
Lowest Legend: Doink (81)
Rankings revealed: 50 out of 133
44 Added in the original post
Randy Orton & Rob Van Dam added
Macho Man Randy Savage, Roman Reigns, Doink & Solo Sikoa added
And here are the female WWE Superstar rankings as of writing:
As usual, there are a lot of fans complaining about their favorite superstars not getting a really high ranking, such as Rhea Ripley’s ranking of 87 being called out as horrible online due to her popularity in the company lately and her recent WWE Women’s Royal Rumble win which will see her face off against WWE Smackdown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair at Wrestlemania 39 at the start of April.
While I do agree that #MamiGotRobbed and #MamiDeservesBetter, a lot of these rankings are decided around Wrestlemania last year, same with the names, gimmicks, and looks of the character since these things go into production before the recent version goes on sale. So there is nothing we can do at this point.
