match types - wwe 2k22

WWE 2K22 includes a wide range of Match Types based on their stage shows, featuring up to eight wrestlers in the ring at the same time.

Only one of the match types in WWE 2K22’s many categories has a new game mode, and even that one isn’t entirely fresh. There is also no word on the revival of classic modes like Lumberjack Match, Gauntlet Match, or Special Guest Referee.

Every match type can be further subdivided and personalized with a number of conditions that help spice up and make the match more entertaining. These conditions are normally placed on top of the match type, but they alter the rules and how a superstar or superstars can win.
