WWE 2K22 brings back the showcase mode, which features Rey Mysterio’s career. This game’s March 11 release date is quickly approaching, and we’ve been learning more about what this year has in store for us.
The reception of WWE 2K20 at the end of 2019 was so negative that the company suspended development on WWE 2K21 and chose to focus all of its efforts on making a much better game with an extra year to do so. WWE 2K22 will be released this Friday, but those who preordered the Deluxe Edition will be able to play it starting on Tuesday.

Rey Mysterio’s Missing Key Matches
As previously said, the list includes some well-known classic matches, including as Mysterio’s 2005 WrestleMania match with Eddie Gurrero, among others. It’s worth noting that the 2006 Royal Rumble bout, which Rey Mysterio won, isn’t on the list. Similarly, Mysterio’s World Heavyweight Championship triumph at WrestleMania 22 is not in the game, however this could be because it was against Kurt Angle, who is not in this year’s game.
While this is undoubtedly upsetting news for some Rey Mysterio fans, the showcase still includes some excellent matches. That is a stacked showcase lineup through which players may relive Rey Mysterio’s legacy.
