One of the key exclusions fans noticed from WWE 2K22 was WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley. The former WWE Champion is a mainstay of the WWE games, usually featuring him as himself and as the “Three Faces of Foley”, AKA Mankind, Dude Love and Cactus Jack.
While WWE 2K22 has one of the most complete rosters of all time, that one omission is quite glaring. However, WWE 2K22 appears to have tried to make amends by adding Mick Foley as DLC into WWE 2K22.
Mick Foley in WWE 2K22
Mick Foley was not included in the base game of WWE 2K22. He was a massive exemption from the WWE 2K22 roster and one fans were furious about.
Mick Foley is one of the all time greats in WWE and a fan favourite from since the Attitude Era. Fans lamented being unable to recreate their favourite Hell in a Cell moment (when the Undertaker threw Mankind off the top of the cell through a table) without Mick Foley for authenticity.
While fans were unhappy with the lack of inclusion of Mick Foley and the “Three Faces of Foley” in the game, they can at least partially rejoice.
With the release of WWE 2K22 Most Wanted DLC Pack, 2K games have included one of the most infamous faces of Foley as part of the new DLC for WWE 2K22.
Cactus Jack, the persona which Foley made famous in Japan, ECW, WCW and later WWE, is making his long-awaited return to a WWE game. He is included in the Most Wanted pack with other fun wrestlers to play as, including Vader, The Boogeyman, Indi Hartwell and Ilja Dragunov.
It is not the first time Mick Foley has appeared in a WWE game. He first appeared in WWF Warzone back in 1997, and his inclusion in WWE 2K22 marks his 22nd outing in a WWE game. He also appeared in cult Japanese wrestling game Fire Pro as Cactus Jack in the past.
The Most Wanted Pack for WWE 2K22 features Mick Foley as Cactus Jack and is the second DLC pack so far released for the game The first was the The Banzai Pack, which was released on April 26, featuring Yokozuna, Umaga, Rikishi, Omos, and Katana Chance (under her real name, Kacy Catanzaro).
Other faces of Foley (Mankind, Dude Love and Mick Foley) are not set to be included in WWE 2K22 as of time of writing.
