The Skill Sets in WWE 2K17 allow you to assign to Superstars special scenario-specific moves, making each Superstar feel more unique in the process. There is no limit on how many skills can be assigned to a Superstar, however a few OMG moments can't co-exist with each other if they are triggered from the same position, and some can only be executed once per match.

Compared to previous years, several new Skills & OMG Moments have been added to WWE 2K17, including Kevin Owens Apron Powerbomb (which for some reason is listed as a Suicide Dive though), the Ladder Bridge Powerbomb and a wide array of Backstage Brawl environmental OMGs.
