Look, if I’m going to watch a flesh collision between two muscle mountains in tights, there better be a damn table, chair or ladder involved. OH MY. Last year’s WWE game wasn’t exactly packing a lot of match modes into the package, which is depressingly similar to the state of WWE TV programming today outside of the NXT roster.

This year however, WWE 2K16 has plenty of modes within which to test the warranty of your new table. Iron Man matches (Which aren’t fights featuring wrestlers trying to fit into Hulkbuster armour suits), Hell in a Cell and some TLC are making a return.

YouTuber CMPuls3 managed to list all of the upcoming match types arriving in WWE 2K16. Here’s that list:

One-on-One:

  • Normal
  • Falls Counts Anywhere
  • Iron Man
  • Submission
  • Extreme Rules
  • Table
  • No Holds Barred
  • Last Man Standing
  • Ladder
  • TLC
  • Steel Cage
  • Hell in a Cell

Two-on-Two

  • Normal
  • Extreme Rules
  • Steel Cage
  • Elimination Tag
  • Elimination Tornado Tag
  • Hell in a Cell

Handicap

  • One-on-Two tag
  • One-on-Three tag

Triple Threat

  • Normal
  • Extreme Rules
  • Steel Cage
  • Hell in a Cell
  • Ladder
  • Table
  • TLC

Fatal-4-Way

  • Fatal-4-Way
  • Fatal-4-Way Extreme Rules
  • Falls Count Anywhere
  • Hell in a Cell
  • Ladder, Table
  • Steel Cage

6-Man

  • Tag-Team
  • Elimination Tag
  • Battle Royal
  • Elimination Chamber
  • Hell in a Cell
  • Ladder

Tournaments:

  • Gold Rush
  • King of the Ring
  • Tag-Team

Royal Rumble

  • 10-Man
  • 20-Man
  • 30-Man

Now granted, certain match-types here are pretty much similar to each other. Like Mortal Kombat 2 palette swaps, No Holds Barred and Extreme Rules matches are the exact same thing, barring (heh) a slight difference or two. The thing is, there’s still one thing that I want to see in a proper WWE game: Ludicrous build-ups.

Sure, any rivalry can easily be started with just one errant swing of a flaming steel chair, but I want to trip the stupid fantastic and relive the completely bonkers days of WWE. I want to start a feud, that goes too far when I steal the freshly deceased corpse of the man who happens to be the father of my opponent. While he hangs on for dear life as I tear rubber through a graveyard.

Yes, more of that please. And Slim Jims. I have a need to snap into a Slim Jim lately. OH YEAH!

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

    Not to be a troll.. But I found it HILARIOUS that 2K decided to put WWE 2K16 behind a curtain door at RAGE this year… I was like… Somebody sure has a lot of faith in this dying franchise…

  • Dutch Matrix

    So, question to the Lord of Bonthuys. How much of that will I be able to do in a career mode that involves as many real life people as my sex life does. One, in other words…
