WWE 2K22 match2K Games

WWE 2K22 features a variety of fun match types and stipulations taken directly from their live shows. Here’s a list of all WWE2K match types and the stipulations you can add.

As with earlier WWE games from developer 2K, WWE 2K22 includes all of WWE’s classic match types for players to experience with any of the assembled superstars that are available in the game. This includes regular single matches, tag-team, and multi-person matches, to even huge Royal Rumbles.

Every match type can be broken down further and customized with a variety of stipulations that help spice up the match and make it more interesting. These stipulations usually sit on top of the match type, but changes the rules and how a superstar or superstars are able to win. For example, you could have a tag-team match that becomes a ladder match. Or you could choose to have a singles match that takes place in a steel cage – the possibilities are endless.

In WWE 2K22, players can take part in the following match types, playing against AI or other players:

  • One on One
  • Two on Two (Tag team match)

  • 5-person match
  • 6-person match
  • 8-person match
