WWE 2K22 features a wide variety of Match Types, with up to 8 wrestlers in the ring at the same time. On this page, you can find all the WWE 2K22 Match Types available in the game.

Also, with the Custom Matches / Match Creator feature in WWE 2K22, players can create and save their own match types with a customized set of rules.

Unfortunately, no new match types have been added in WWE 2K22, with the exception of a new backstage area. We still don't see the long-requested return of the likes of Special Referee, Gauntlet Match, I Quit Match, or Lumberjack Match, nor the implementation of new match types such as War Games.
