** Averted in the [=SmackDown=] vs Raw series, which featured the 3 Faces of Foley, in addition to classic versions of Undertaker & Kane, but would lock the player out of variations of the character if another was used.
** In [=Smackdown=] VS. RAW 2006, there are 3 different versions of Hulk Hogan, and the game allows you to have them face each other.

*** Wrestling/JimRoss & Wrestling/JerryLawler are on commentary for every single match in "30 Years of [=WrestleMania=]" due to Gorilla Monsoon's death meaning it would be impossible to recreate the actual commentary teams for the first eight events.

*** Wrestling/JimRoss & Wrestling/JerryLawler are on commentary for every single match in "30 Years of [=WrestleMania=]" due to Gorilla Monsoon's death death, Bobby Heenan losing his voice, and Jesse Ventura being busy with politics meaning it would be impossible to recreate the actual commentary teams for the first eight events.

* 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 UsefulNotes/PlayStation4, UsefulNotes/XboxOne and PC for ''2K15'' whilst still developing for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation3 and UsefulNotes/{{Xbox 360}} until ''2K18''. Building upon the simulation style, Yuke's has continued to develop the games with the additional help from Visual Concepts.

* UnexpectedCharacter: The entry was getting so long [[UnexpectedCharacter/WWEVideoGames a separate page was made to contain it.]]



* WolverinePublicity[=/=]CoversAlwaysLie: BretHart is front and center on the Canadian cover for ''2011'', but is not in the game.
** Not unless you download him from Xbox Live / the UsefulNotes/PlayStationNetwork.
** Canadian copies also had an exclusive sheet included in the case that had a code to download Bret for free, however.
* WouldHitAGirl: For most of the series, you could put divas in the ring against the men. Many pre-SvR games could even extend the female characters' rights by making them either male or genderless. ''WWF [=SmackDown=]: Shut Your Mouth'', in turn, had no other option of putting a female CAW into the Career Mode rather than [[AmbiguousGender choosing the second option]]. As of ''2010'', there is no more intergender competition other than Mixed Tag Team matches, and in those attacking a female wrestler with a male one is an instant disqualification (and DQs cannot be turned off in this match). The reasoning behind this is officially part of WWE's post-2008 efforts to clean up the company's image, which included banning male-on-female violence. There's also persistent speculation that some executive somewhere thought that the possibility of the girls beating the guys devalued the guys and removed it for that reason.

** Look through the games from HCTP to 2k14. Pay attention to the damage rating on the [[Wrestling/AJStyles Styles Clash]]. It seems to drop every damn game. Also of note is the [[Wrestling/{{Sting}} Scorpion Death Drop]] vanishing for 5 or so games, the version of the Edgecution that looked like [[Wrestling/ChristopherDaniels the Angel's Wings]] being removed altogether after 2006, and, from the same game, Wrestling/JimmyHart using Wrestling/{{Rhyno}}'s ''''entire moveset'''' (sans taunts).

** It appears that Hogan has been dummied out again in ''2K16'' because his racist scandal lead to him being fired and [[{{Unperson}} unpersoned]] from WWE the day after his inclusion in the game was leaked online. [[note]]Even though 2K confirmed that the leak was false and never confirmed Hogan for the game, it's far from unreasonable to assume that Hogan would have been included had this not happened, since all of the other DLC characters from 15 were included in 16.[[/note]]

* CAS in 2K15 and 16 is ridiculously slow when loading or deleting parts. Well, slow for eighth gen gaming, that is.

* 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, Kevin Nash and 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:

** The first three or four games took place during the era, with ''Shut Your Mouth'' current to mid 2002 after the draft and brand expansion. Since then classic wrestlers and storylines would be offered up. The Legends Tour in 2006 for example was a ''New Generation''\Attitude storyline, specifically the MontrealScrewjob, HulkHogan and [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Rock]] teaming up and the legendary Hell in a Cell with TheUndertaker and [[MickFoley Mankind]].
