WWE 2K23 is finally here, which means you can now take to the ring and get started in 2K's brand-new game.

For those who have pre-ordered the game and purchased the Season Pass, you won't have to worry about all the unlockables featured, but not all of us are so lucky!

From legends of the sport to some of the best arenas around, there are some sensational superstars, shows and title belts all to unlock in WWE 2K23.

With that in mind, we want to take you through all of those unlockables, showing you their price and just how easy it is to unlock them.

LATEST - How to Unlock Everything

WWE 2K23 offers a range of unlockable items, with Superstars, Arenas and Title belts all up for grabs.

Most of these unlockable items require VC/Tokens in order to access them, but some also require the playthrough of the Showcase and MyRISE modes.

The quickest way to unlock all of these items is to utilise pre-order bonuses or purchase the Season Pass.

Utilising these premium features, you can quickly unlock everything, without having to worry about VC.

The only items you cannot unlock are those hidden behind specific modes, with the John Cena Showcase Mode and parts of MyRISE still requiring completion.

Failing that, you can use the traditional method of farming VC in order to unlock all of the items in WWE 2K23, but that is certain to take a fair chunk of time.

The quickest way to gain VC in WWE 2K23 is by playing matches and gaining a high star rating. Extreme rules matches appear to be the best way to get high star ratings, with memorable moments improving your overall match rating.

WWE 2K23 Unlockables

Unlockable content has always been a big part of WWE games and this year's instalment is no different.

All unlockables are available to purchase using VC, an in-game currency you can earn in many ways.
