Universe Mode: This mode is very similar to the GM mode in previous WWE games. You create your own shows with your own storylines and rivalries. You can also compete online against other players universes.

MyCareer Mode: This is WWE’s version of a career mode. You create your own superstar and take them through their career from NXT all the way to the main roster and hopefully become a Hall of Famer. You can also interfere in other superstar’s storylines and become involved in rivalries with them as you try to rise to the top.

2K Showcase Mode: This mode is based around two storylines from WWE history, “The Rise of DX” and “Austin 3:16”. You play through key matches from each storyline and unlock classic wrestlers along the way. This mode is great for fans of DX or Stone Cold Steve Austin.

Kings Ransom Mode: In this mode, you have to choose one superstar to be your champion and defend their title against everyone else in order to stay champion. This mode is great for players who want a challenge as it can be quite difficult to stay champion for any length of time.

WWE Live Mode: In this mode, you play through an entire night of Raw or Smackdown including all the matches, promos and backstage segments. This is great for fans who want to experience what it’s like to be a part of a live WWE show.

Tips and Strategies

Before immediately trying to break the ring in WWE 2K16, make sure that you set the match rules to “No Count-Outs” and “No Disqualifications”. If you don’t do this, then the match will end as soon as you go out of the ring and your opponent will win. Also, make sure that the “Ring Break” option is turned on in the match settings.

Create a Wrestler

The first order of business is to create a grappler that’s capable of contending for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. You don’t have to make your Superstar look like John Cena or Brock Lesnar, but you will want to assign him or her an appropriate weight class, as this will have an effect on their in-game attributes. There are a total of seven different weight classes in WWE 2K16: Heavyweight, Super heavyweight, Cruiserweight, Light heavyweight, Middleweight, Welterweight and Bantamweight.

Road to Glory Mode

Road to Glory is a mode in WWE 2K16 in which you create a Superstar and take them through an online career, competing in matches to improve your Superstar’s abilities and attributes, until you are good enough to take on WWE’s top superstars. The mode is comprised of three different types of matches.

WWE Universe Mode

In WWE Universe Mode, you are able to create your own custom storylines and matches that play out like a television show. You can also compete in Pay-Per-View events and choose which superstars are drafted to which brand. There is a lot of freedom in this mode to create whatever type of show you want, but there are a few tips and strategies that can help you get the most out of your Universe Mode experience.

One of the first things you should do is set up your brackets for any tournaments that you want to have in your Universe. This can be done by going to the ‘Superstars’ menu and then selecting ‘Brackets’. From here, you can set up singles, tag team, or women’s tournaments with up to 32 participants. Once the brackets are set up, you can then go to the ‘Matches’ menu and choose which matches take place on each show. If you want a particular match to be a tournament match, simply select it from the drop-down menu in the ‘Type’ column.

You can also create custom stipulations for matches by going to the ‘Stipulations’ menu. Here you can choose from a variety of different stipulations, such as No Disqualification, Ladder, Table, Cage, etc. You can also create your own stipulations by selecting ‘Create Stipulation’.

Another important aspect of Universe Mode is managing your superstars’ morale. Morale is lowered when superstars lose matches, don’t win championships, or don’t get along with each other backstage. You can view each superstar’s morale by going to the ‘Superstars’ menu and selecting ‘Morale’. Low morale can lead to superstars quitting WWE or getting injured, so it’s important to try and keep morale as high as possible.

There are a few different ways that you can increase morale. One way is by booking superstars in matches that they feel confident about winning. You can see each superstar’s match confidence by going to the ‘Superstars’ menu and selecting ‘Match Confidence’. Superstars will also get a morale boost if they win championships or if they are drafted to a brand that they prefer.

You can viewbrand preferences by going to the ‘Superstars’ menu and selecting ‘Brand Preferences’. Another way to increase morale is by booking tag team matches where both members of the team have high chemistry with each other. You can view team chemistryby going to the ‘Superstars’ menu and selecting ‘Team Chemistry’.

Following these tips will help you get the most out of your WWE 2K16 Universe Mode experience!


Although it may seem like a difficult task, breaking the ring in WWE 2K16 is actually quite easy once you know how to do it. With a little bit of practice, you’ll be able to break the ring and win your matches in no time.
