Part of the craziness of a WWE match can be the added danger of weapons. A WWE 2K22 ring can house all sorts of brutal implements for you to bludgeon your opponent with and there’s a neat little way to do so.

Traditionally, a collar and elbow tie-up and some catch-as-catch-can-style wrestling will be the foundation for a professional wrestling match clinic.
