So today, on Twitter, WWE 2K Battlegrounds begin to make major heads roll in good and bad ways announcing that Rob Gronkowski, NFL Star and Damien Lillard or should I say Laheem Lillard as they call him in the update trailer, below and online in their posts. Check out the trailer and all the current available images released to the press and on Twitter. Good thing more are incoming in this update. My personal favorites are seeing The IIconics and Rhea Ripley as the women roster and NXT needs more of a presence in the game. Press Release also below.
