WWE 2K24: Vince McMahon's Efforts to Eliminate
WWE

Efforts are allegedly underway to exclude Vince McMahon from the upcoming WWE 2K24 video game slated for an early March release.

On January 25, a legal action accused McMahon of sexual trafficking, abuse, and more. Consequently, McMahon stepped down from his role in the WWE parent company TKO, and the WWE has attempted to distance itself from him, even removing his profile from public view on the official WWE roster page.

It appears that other WWE-related projects are also feeling the impact. In the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer revealed:

“They’re trying to find a way to remove him from the video game, which may prove challenging. And they’re probably exploring ways to erase him from history, which is an entirely daunting task.”

Recently, Brock Lesnar was removed from the WWE 2K Supercard mobile game. The lawsuit implicated several unnamed parties, including one referred to as “WWE Superstar,” a former UFC Heavyweight Champion negotiating with WWE at the time of the alleged events.

While it’s crucial to note that Brock Lesnar was not directly named in the lawsuit, the Wall Street Journal reported that the individual referred to as WWE Superstar was, indeed, Lesnar. This development reportedly led to WWE altering creative plans, sidelining Lesnar from the Royal Rumble match on January 27 and WrestleMania in early April.

Reports suggest that sources have indicated Lesnar’s potential downplay or removal from 2K projects and possibly other licensee products. However, there’s no confirmation regarding Lesnar’s status in the WWE 2K24 video game, set for release in early March. As of the latest update on February 1, Lesnar is still featured on the official WWE 2K website, particularly on the cover of the 40 Years of WrestleMania edition.

As of this writing, Lesnar remains listed as a current ‘Superstar’ on wwe.com official roster page, while Vince McMahon’s profile, removed from public view on January 26, continues to generate speculation.
