WWE 2K22 launches today. For some fans, the best part of wrestling games is creating custom superstars or, better yet, real-life wrestlers not present in the game (or at least not yet in some cases). But no matter how visually accurate your Jon Moxley CAW is, he’s nothing without an entrance that at least comes close to emulating the real thing. Thankfully, WWE 2K22’s entrance creation features a number of animations from old stars and even those who have never stepped foot in WWE. The trick is knowing where to look. 

WWE games have traditionally labeled these entrances using both clever and blatantly obvious names to tip-off fans and say “Yes, that is indeed the entrance of current AEW Women’s Champion Dr. Britt Baker DMD.” To save you some time, I took the liberty of sussing them out and listing them, first by the superstar and then the name of the entrance. That way you can search by the wrestler you want to create first and foremost. 

Keep in mind that the entrances listed are only the ones I personally recognized. There were several other animations that felt like direct references but I couldn't confidently put a name on them. If you identify a superstar’s entrance that isn’t listed here, or if I labeled one incorrectly, let us know in the comments!
