The nL Universe is hosted on WWE 2K16, and combined elements from both the 2K14 PPV and 2K15 Universe Mode continuities. The season is noted for it's numerous setbacks, including the kayfabe deaths of Duel and Htial, scheduling problems, Jericho and his internet problems, and the series straight up dying for months. It was basically confirmed on March 28th that the series was not dead, but the match number had been bumped back down to 5.
At the end of the 2K14 nL Night of Champions pay-per-view, during the Triple Threat match for All the Marbles between K. Maleik Shabazz Steve Austin, Mark Henry, and Sin Cara, the pay-per-view feed was suddenly interrupted by several video messages.
Mr. McMahon and the New West OfricaEdit
Mr. McMahon revealed, in a year-long plan, he masterminded the theft of Dario Culo's van and has successfully taken all ownership (or so he thought) of the nL universe from Culo with the help of the New West Ofrica and their new leader, Stardust. This effectively merges 2K14 and 2K15 universes.
News Legacy, Inc.Edit
Immediately following Mr. McMahon's message, it was announced that CM Punk, AJ Lee, Justin Gabriel, Rob Van Dam and Alberto Del Rio have left the company following his takeover of the nL universe. In addition, The Great Khali has been traded from the New York Giants in exchange for Enzo Amore.
"The Dancing Machine" Fandango and his handler Summer Rae were created by Bray Wyatt. It was revealed Fandango's master was The Terminator. After Wyatt's loss to the Terminator and Fandango's loss at Night of Champions, Wyatt revealed that he had created a new master/dance partner for Fandango.
Although it was believed that Mr McMahon took sole ownership of the universe, Dario revealed that while he had sold all of his stake, he in fact had only owned half of the universe and that his business parter and co-owner had been running the 2K15 Universe during his abcense. The partner had retained his co-owenership of the universe and was revealed to be none other than Vince's own son, Shane McMahon.
