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!
