The third WWE 2K22 DLC pack is set to arrive with the Stand Back Pack, and here’s everything fans will get in it.
The Stand Back Pack was already set to be WWE 2K22’s most questionable bundle, but real-life troubles have seen it become even worse. Though WWE 2K22’s DLC bundles have included either five or six wrestlers, this one is now set to include just four.
What happened to reduce the number of available wrestlers in the Stand Back DLC bundle? And what DLC are fans actually set to get with the WWE 2K22 Stand Back Pack? Here’s the deal.
The WWE 2K22 Stand Back Pack DLC bundle will include four wrestlers as well as Booker T EVO and Seth Rollins Emerald MyFACTION cards. The Booker T EVO and Seth Rollins MyFACTION cards are set to replace one of the wrestlers who was cut from the lineup. Here’s what fans get now.
Gregory Helms had an 11-year run at the top of the wrestling scene, starting in WCW in 1999 before a 2001-2010 run in the WWE. Though he wrestled with multiple names and gimmicks during that time, he is mostly known for his 2001-2006 stint as comedy act The Hurricane. The Hurricane had a bumbling superhero aesthetic that caught on in a way that still sees Helms dust off the cape on occasion today.
Stacy Keibler enjoyed a relatively similar run to Hurricane Helms, albeit for different reasons. Keibler started in the WCW in 1999 but was brought to the WWE in 2001. She was part of a number of dated storylines that wouldn’t make it to air on modern television alongside Vince McMahon, Scott Steiner, and Randy Orton.
A-Kid has been a featured star on NXT UK since 2019, including his winning the Heritage Cup. He debuted in NXT 2.0 on March 15 with a victory over Kushida and has been appearing on both brands since then.
Former NXT tag team champion Wes Lee appears as a solo act in WWE 2K22. He was originally schedule to be added to the game alongside longtime partner Nash Carter. Following Carter’s release from WWE, Wes Lee has been performing as a singles act, though his days with the company could also be numbered.
The Stand Back Pack only boasts four wrestlers due to the release of Nash Carter.
Carter was accused of domestic violence by his wife, Kimber Lee. Alongside the allegations of abuse, Kimber Lee posted a photo of Nash Carter with a toothbrush mustache and his arm extended in a Nazi salute. He was released from the company on April 6. The relevant tweets from Kimber Lee have since been deleted.
As is often the case with controversial figures, Carter is largely being scrubbed from the company’s history. This included the sudden decision to remove him from WWE 2K22’s roster. Replacing him in the bundle are Booker T EVO and Seth Rollins Emerald MyFACTION cards.
