While he's been in wrestling video games since as far back as 1997 in WCW vs nWo: World Tour, this is the first time Mysterio has been chosen as a cover star.

He follows in the footsteps of these iconic cover stars since WWE paired with 2K Games:

  • WWE 2K16 - "Stone Cold" Steve Austin
  • WWE 2K17 - Brock Lesnar
  • WWE 2K18 - Seth Rollins
  • WWE 2K19 - AJ Styles
  • WWE 2K20 - Becky Lynch & Roman Reigns

Both the Standard Edition and Deluxe Edition featuring Rey Mysterio will be available in physical and digital versions, however the Cross-Gen Bundle featuring the same Standard Edition art is a digital exclusive.

TOO SWEET: The nWo 4-Life Edition features these WCW legends

In addition to the extra content included in the Deluxe Edition or as a pre order bonus, the nWo 4-Life Edition is packed with even more bonuses.

Players who snag this one will get MyFACTION EVO Cards and alternate nWo attires for Hollywood Hogan, Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, and Syxx.

This edition includes an exclusive playable Eric Bischoff character which doesn't appear to be available in any other versions, and we have no indication whether it will be purchasable DLC down the line.

It also includes the WCW Souled Out 1997 and WCW Bash at the Beach 1996 arenas, the nWo Wolfpac Championship, furthering hopes that we could see some great WCW legends hit the WWE 2K22 roster.
