  1. Pros:
    - Velocity!
    - More than likely old Smackdown arena with the fist.
    - Bryan Danielson
    - Attires look phenomenal.
    - Hair looks good.
    Cons:
    - Old but young Cena. Same as Kurt and Taker from 2K18. Fix this ****.
    - Commentary.
    - 11 Daniel Bryan's
    - More than likely no CM Punk or Nexus which makes this showcase very meh.
    Doesnt excite too much, but does make me go from no buy to intrigued to what else they are going to do.

    What I like about this is the old characters such as Bryan Cena kofi. Because what I like to do in universe as guys get older is retire them. And with the nxt call ups my nxt gets depleted so I restock it by lowering some overalls of classic guys like stunning Steve Austin, hunter Hearst Helmsley razor Ramon old school ddp and so on, so I can add the Bryan Danielson and 03 John Cena to that group of guys for sure
    Meh, I like Daniel Bryan but not enough to have an entire mode centered around him.  Have they released any info at all about gameplay improvements, or anything that would remotely justify the enormous cost of the game with all the DLC?  I'm honestly pretty tired of this series, and the general complacency and greed 2k has shown as a developer for pretty much this entire generation of consoles. 
    Thank the heavens that Fire Pro is coming to PS4, gives me a wonderful alternative to this $100 roster update.
    rinse and repeat, i have wwe 13,14 &18 for not only my story mode fix but universe as well, all those rings and characters involved with 2k19 can be achieved in  either o those games listed. no innovative enough for me to buy this year.

    Yeah without Punk and the Nexus you are missing his entire beginnings in WWE.
    Not to be Mr. Cynical, but to me this is a regression. When they first got rid of the showcase modes they said they did it to focus on perfecting the other modes and features. This tells me they don't have much else to market because they didn't improve much. Hopefully I'm wrong though.
    I like the Showcase modes but I’d rather a really well thought out and branching story mode like No Mercy had. Like what if they had the consequences of choices and W/L like an Until Dawn inside a WWE story. That would be worth playing.
    As it stands now, until the game becomes more fun to actually play, there’s almost no mode they can add that will get me to buy the game.
