My top two guesses would be either something for WWE 2K20, or maybe a new WWE Network “What if?” type series. If I was gonna put money on something, I’d go with the latter due to the “WWE Reimagined” hashtag.

What’s your guess? And does the thought of Taker vs. Sting - at any point in the timeline - still make you mark out?
