Since August 31, 2018, the WWE 2K19 Twitter account has been revealing the in-game ratings for the game’s roster. The most recent pair of WWE Superstars to get rated is the Bulgarian Brute and the Ravishing Russian, Rusev and Lana.
First up is Rusev, a two time WWE United States champion and a Slammy award-winning wrestler, received a rating of 84; he received the same rating in last year’s release. In her WWE 2K debut as a playable character, Lana received a rating of 70.

So, what did these two have to say about their ratings? Rusev posted on his personal Twitter stating, “don’t worry Rusev Day fans, it’s all political!” On the other hand, Lana was a bit more disheartened by the reveal. Not because she was rated low but because she claims she has never wrestled in the gear pictured in WWE 2K19‘s tweet.
Who is this ?????? Never have I worn that gear or wrestled with short hair so I am very confused who this women is. https://t.co/at8oKeE1JO
