WWE 2K22 Entrance List: Every preset motion from past superstars, tag teams, and more

share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

With the game finally here, many players are seeking a WWE 2K22 entrance list detailing all the preset entrance animations and which superstars they belong to.

We've got good news, as our WWE 2K22 entrance list has all the animations you're looking for including tag team, trio, and Money in the Bank entrances.

WWE 2K22 Entrance List (Preset Solo Motions)

After plenty of anticipation about whether this year's game would live up to the hype, WWE 2K22 has arrived and more than exceeded expectations for many.

However, one missing feature has had more and more players turn to a WWE 2K22 entrance list to have a better understanding of the game's preset generic named entrance animations.

As a result of the feature creating bugs and stability issues in the past, they've removed the Advanced Animation option in WWE 2K22.

As a result, players are no longer able to craft their entrance with various pieces like the Stage Motion of Roman Reigns and the Ring Motion of Seth Rollins.

Instead, players will have to rely more on the game's preset WWE 2K22 entrance list, but the good news is that list is packed to the brim with stars from the past and present.

Not only do we find recently released talents like Bobby Fish (now dubbed Grizzled Fisherman) or Ruby Riott (now dubbed Crimson Rebellion) on the list, but it's also got legends or independent wrestlers that have never even been a part of WWE.

Mainstays like former AEW World Champion Kenny Omega and indie veteran Chris Sabin have full entrance animations along with smaller names like Jason Cade and Shynron.

Our thanks go out to SmackDown Hotel and their preset entrance list for helping inform our own. The following list has details for the vast majority of the 200+ solo preset entrance motions in WWE 2K22, but there are still a few that remain unknown at this point.

Without further ado, here's the full WWE 2K22 entrance list and which superstar inspired each preset:

That finally concludes our list, but it's important to note that WWE 2K22 will have several DLC packs arriving in the coming months.

With NXT 2.0 and some legends on the docket for those, it's possible some extra entrance animations could find their way into WWE 2K22 in that DLC.
