All Of The Game Modes Found In WWE 2K22

Like all of the games in the series, WWE 2K22 gives you a variety of different game modes that you can play. If you’re looking to purchase WWE 2K22, you will want to know what these game modes are before you part with your money.

You can play WWE 2K22 on PC, on XBOX, or Playstation.

In this article, we will look at all of the different game modes that are found in WWE 2K22.

Exhibition / Custom Matches

This is the pick-and-play mode that allows you to dive straight into the action.

These are all stand-alone matches where you can simply pick your favorite character from the large roster, choose a match type, and head straight into the ring.


If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to be the General Manager of a WWE show such as RAW or Smackdown, then this mode gives you the chance to live out that dream. 

You will be able to create your own roster by drafting your favorite WWE Superstars for your brand.

With your roster in place, you can then book them in matches, decide who feuds with who, and take the rivalries to their conclusion by making them face off in specialty matches.

It’s up to you to make interesting shows and keep the fans entertained. You can choose from several different WWE brands, such as RAW, Smackdown, NXT, and NXT UK.

This mode has been missing from some other recent WWE 2K games so it’s good to see it back in 2K22.


This is a new mode that hasn’t been seen in WWE 2K games before. It takes its ideas from similar functions in NBA 2K and the recent FIFA games. 

With MyFaction, you can create your own group of wrestlers. Factions have long been an important part of wrestling, whether it’s the nWo, Evolution, or D-Generation X and now you can make your own.

You will be able to collect the Superstars for your faction and then set them to compete in weekly events. This mode has several challenges for you to complete and includes many Superstars from the history of WWE.


It’s not unusual for WWE 2K games to have a career mode and this is WWE 2K22’s version. You can use an established WWE Superstar or create your own Superstar in the Creation Suite.

This mode features different storylines for male and female Superstars so you can be sure of getting some replay value from this mode.

You will need to take your Superstar from the beginning of their WWE career and help them prove their worth as they work through the card.

There are several storylines that give you the option to choose your allies and enemies and these will branch into subplots depending on your choices.

You will get the chance to interact and wrestle some of the biggest names in WWE history as you continue on your journey.

WWE 2K Showcase

The showcase mode allows you to play through some of the highlights and most famous matches of a specific wrestler’s career.

In the case of WWE 2K22, the showcase focuses on legendary luchador Rey Mysterio and tracks his career through a mode that is both narrative and objective-driven.

You can play through some of Rey’s most famous matches from his match against Eddie Guerrero at WCW Halloween Havoc 1997 to his match against Gran Metalik on RAW in 2019.

The mode also introduces Dominik Mysterio into the video game world for the first time.

By progressing through this mode, you can also unlock new characters, attires, and arenas.

Creation Suite

The ability to create your own wrestler has always been one of the most popular modes and features of pro-wrestling video games and WWE 2K22 has upped the bar this time around.

It features one of the most in-depth character creation systems. You can create up to 100 different characters and there are a wide range of customization options.

For example, there are 261 different hair options and 165 different facial hair options, and you can choose from over 3000 moves to create your Superstar’s move set. You can also create your Superstar’s entrance and attire.

Creation Suite gives you the chance to create your own arena, shows, and championship belts, too.

Once you’ve created your Superstar, you can share your creation online with other players of the game.

This is also available cross-platform for the first time so you can share your PlayStation creations with players on Xbox, for example. There is a very active community of fan creations that you can tap into.
