* {{Bowdlerize}}: In the second and third games, it was possible for players to create nude female characters via skin-colored outfit parts and creative use of patterns to make nipples. Since then, the game has tried various methods to prevent this. ''Shut Your Mouth'' disallowed adding patterns to female CAW torsos, but players figured out a way to hack the ability to add them back in. Later games caused the patterns to go behind the CAW's breasts instead of on top of them. This is all very annoying for players who just want to create female CAWs and have to settle for substandard ones because of the censorship-imposed limitations on them. '''15'' and '''16'' abandoned this, instead resorting to heavily monitoring community creations.

* ArtisticLicenseGeography: The Road to [=WrestleMania=] mode in '''12'' features an EvilBrit PowerStable called the "United Kingdom" consisting of two Englishmen in Wrestling/WadeBarrett and William Regal, a Scotsman in Wrestling/DrewMcIntyre and an Irishman in Wrestling/{{Sheamus}}. Nobody told the storyline writers that Sheamus is from the Republic of Ireland, which is separate from the UK.

*** Maybe, Sheamus counts in WWE '12 but Triple H's story started with HHH beating up Sheamus.

* The ''[=SmackDown=] vs. Raw'' series (2004-2010); continuation of the THQ/Yuke's partnership. Originally cashing in on the brand warfare theme, it later became known for its GenreShift from arcade-like gameplay to simulation, becoming a yearly institution in the vein of the ''Madden NFL'' games. The series went multi-platform, appearing on the PSP with the release of ''[=SmackDown=] vs. Raw 2006'' and the Xbox 360, with the release of ''[=SmackDown=] vs. Raw 2007''. ''[=SmackDown=] vs. Raw 2008'' added the PS3, Wii and DS to the list of platforms. The era was also known for suffering with CapcomSequelStagnation.

* GameBreakingBug: The game sure likes to crash or glitch in the event you are winning however this can result in losing your save data or even all the content on your system, turning it into a XBOX or Playstation breaking bug. There is no way to recover or download again what was lost, it all has to be done again from scratch.

Wrestling/{{Sting}} was the PreOrderBonus for ''WWE 2K15'' despite never having wrestled in WWE (until Survivor Series 2014.))
** ''2K15'' introduced a number of dev-made created wrestlers in it's Career Mode. The most infamous one being Barron Blade.



* GuestFighter: The series has seen quite a number of guest fighters, notably the inclusions of legends since HCTP. The legends roster generally consists on a group of regulars (The Rock, Stone Cold, Bret Hart, Mick Foley, etc.), legends particularly relevant to WWE at a given time (Eddie Guerrero in 2007, Booker T in '12), and filled up with a diverse group of random legends. Although the series has seen a few other non-legendary guests:

* JigglePhysics: Introduced in the later ''[=SmackDown=] vs. Raw'' games. It was ridiculously cartoon-ish looking and since 95% of the women have oversized breast implants, their boobs shouldn't move that much and thus, was eventually scrapped.

*** Oddly enough ''[=2k14=]'' features an entire game mode based around Undertaker's ''Wrestling/WrestleMania'' winning streak. At 2014's ''Wrestling/WrestleMania XXX'', Taker's streak was finally broken. Foreshadowing by the WWE and Devs? Additionally, Taker himself suffered a bad concussion during the match and was shipped to the hospital afterward.

** Prior to [=2K15=], the series was prone to this, especially with lower card talents. The worst offender was Wrestling/BookerT in ''WWE '12'' and '''13'' who looked like a horse's ass. (See the [[TheyJustDidntCare/WWEVideoGames They Just Didn't Care page]]) With [=2K15=], WWE talents were scanned into the game & given much better likenesses. Though there are still examples of this in [=2K15=], however. The Hollywood & Modern versions of Hulk Hogan are not bald like the man himself[[note]]It is rumored, but not confirmed that Hogan requested them to give him a full head of hair because he hates his baldness.[[/note]], despite Hogan being scanned into the game. Others such as Wrestling/VinceMcMahon, Wrestling/DiamondDallasPage, most of the Divas and superstars who weren't scanned into the game (except for Wrestling/CMPunk & [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Rock]]) look less realistic than the rest of the roster. Both scanned and non-scanned models look off when they make facial expressions, something that will probably be fixed later in the series.

* The ''WWE 2K'' series (2013-); the result of THQ's bankruptcy and the pre-meditated selling of their WWE licence to Creator/TakeTwoInteractive. Published under the 2K Sports label, the series abandoned the Wii for ''2K14'' and made it's way to PS4, Xbox One and PC for ''2K15'' whilst still developing for the PS3 and 360. Building upon the simulation style, Yuke's has continued to develop the games with the additional help from Visual Concepts.

*** Wrestling/ChrisBenoit, [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment for obvious reasons]], was completely removed from the game with only his entrance left in the game. By using a cheat device, one can find an empty character slot with his attributes & complete move list, along with Benoit's signature moves which otherwise remain inaccessible in the game.
