Just over a couple of weeks away from launch, 2K is ramping up its promotion for WWE 2K22.
Missing its usual release window last year, hopes are that WWE 2K22 will prove to be a step up from the last couple of disappointing instalments in the series. Signs are pointing in the right direction at least, and there’s one thing for certain: fans of Machine Gun Kelly should get a kick out of it.
Machine Gun Kelly is no stranger to fans of WWE, having featured in multiple storylines over the years and performed at numerous events. Now, 2K has announced that he’s the Executive Soundtrack Producer for WWE 2K22. As such, he’s curated a 12-track soundtrack for the game that not only includes his own music but also those of a variety of others. A selection of the songs found on the official WWE 2K22 soundtrack can be found below.
- Royal Blood – “Typhoons”
- Bring Me The Horizon – “Happy Song”
- Motorhead – “Iron Fist”
- The Weeknd – “Heartless”
- Turnstile – “I Don’t Wanna Be Blind”
- Asking Alexandria – “The Final Episode (Let’s Change the Channel)”
- KennyHoopla – “Hollywood Sucks”
- Poppy – “Say Cheese (Live NXT version)”

If Machine Gun Kelly curating the soundtrack of WWE 2K22 isn’t enough for you, then how about playing as him? He’ll be added as a playable character some time after the game’s launch, although it seems like you’ll have to pay for the privilege. Campaign videos for the game will also feature the musician and actor, seeing him interact with WWE Superstars such The Undertaker.
For more information on WWE 2K22, you can visit the game’s official website. Those who pre-order the Deluxe or NWO 4-Life editions of the game for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S or PC will be able to play from 8th March, while those picking up the standard version or cross-gen digital bundle will have to wait until the 11th.
