The 1996 edition of Rey Mysterio is a legend addition to WWE 2K22. It is included as part of the Rey Mysterio showcase included in the game, and is based on his Starrcade 1996 attire. It is likely that due to this, his opponent for that show, Jushin Thunder Liger, will also be included. However, that is yet to be confirmed.
16 time world champion Ric Flair is in WWE 2K22. Fans were worried about Flair’s inclusion due to recent controversies relating to the “Plane Ride from Hell”. However, he has been included and fans will be able to enjoy playing with the Nature Boy this match.

The Undertaker will once again be included into the WWE game. He has yet to miss a game to be included in and is always a fan favourite. A return to the “Beat the Streak” mode from WWE 2K14 would be a huge plus for fans, although unlikely to be included.
