Video game reviewers are getting their first chance to get their hands on the upcoming WWE 2K22 release. One review focusing on the newly revived MyGM feature reveals another former WWE NXT GM William Regal may appear in the game.
A screenshot included in a review of WWE 2K22 by WCCF Tech showed Regal as an option for players to choose in the MyGM mode alongside Adam Pearce, Sonya Devilla, Shane McMahon, and Stephanie McMahon. Players can also create a custom character to choose as their general manager.
Regal’s appearance in the MyGM mode conflicts with other promotional material for WWE 2K22. A trailer for MyGM mode mentions the four other character options, but not William Regal.
Other released talent that will reportedly be included are:
- Ember Moon
- The IIconics (Billie Kay & Peyton Royce)
- Jeff Hardy
- John Morrison
- Johnny Gargano
- Kyle O’Reilly
- Mickie James
- Reckoning (Mia Yim)
- Tegan Nox
The WWE 2K22 status is not known for a handful of other individuals, including Adam Cole, Bray Wyatt, and Kurt Angle. WWE reportedly requested that Daniel Bryan (now performing as Bryan Danielson in AEW) be pulled from the game.
