* {{Munchkin}}: The first thread on a new game is usually, "When are the CAWs for Wrestling/JohnCena from WWE 15 going to be up? And the ones from WWE 14, 13, 12, 2011, 2010, 2009, the one from WrestleMania, the one where he rapped against [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Rock,]] the one where he auditioned for ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible...''" However the second thread is always, without fail, "yo what R all teh unblockable glitched cheat moves? I go tke my 100 perfect CAW online to pwn U noobs lolz."

** ''2K16'' replacing Bill [=DeMott=] with Matt Bloom as NXT's head trainer, which was done in real life after [=DeMott=] resigned following allegations of racist and homophobic bullying from former developmental talents. Bloom acts almost like a saint as opposed to [=DeMott's=] loudmouthed, obnoxious behavior in the previous game.

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: ChrisJericho's]] [=RtWM=] in 2011, where even after you win at [=WrestleMania=] [[spoiler: TripleH]] ultimately attacks you and stands tall. [[spoiler:Considering your actions up to Wrestlemania, this could fall under LaserGuidedKarma.]]

** 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 and most of the Divas and Superstars who weren't scanned into the game look less realistic than the rest of the roster. Both scanned and non-scanned models look off when they make certain facial expressions, something that will probably be fixed later in the series.

* {{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.
