In years past, a WWE Legend and/or hitmaking musical artist has curated the soundtrack for WWE and 2K Studios’ annual wrestling video game.
For 2K19, they’ve mixed it up and let the Superstars in the game pick their own favorites to create the playlist which will accompany you while you make your way through this year’s game.
In the above special episode of UpUpDownDown, Austin Creed (aka Xavier Woods) is joined by his fellow SmackDown tag champs Big E & Kofi Kingston of New Day - as well as Grammy winner Wale and the WWE’s own musical sensation Elias - to reveal the soundtrack.
Sadly, they wouldn’t let Elias put any of the tracks from his critically acclaimed debut on the list. But it’s still pretty good.
The New Day‘s pick: Wale – “Ungrateful & Unthankful”
Daniel Bryan‘s pick: Awolnation – “Passion”
The Miz‘s pick: Bullet For My Valentine – “Skin”
AJ Styles‘ pick: Eminem – “Survival”
Triple H‘s pick: Metallica – “Spit Out The Bone”
Alexa Bliss‘ pick: Fall Out Boy – “Champion”
Samoa Joe‘s pick: Migos – “Work Hard”
Ric Flair/Charlotte Flair‘s pick: Metro Boomin & Offset – “Ric Flair Drip”
Sami Zayn‘s pick: Rancid – “The 11th Hour”
Elias‘ pick: Post Malone feat. 21 Savage – “Rockstar”
Seth Rollins‘ pick: Slipknot: “Override”
Baron Corbin‘s pick: Shinedown – “Devil”
