The first WWE 2K22 DLC pack is now available to download!
WWE 2K22 launched on March 11th and it has since been reported that launch sales of the game have been more than double that of the widely panned 2K20. The sales have taken on an increased importance after it was noted that WWE could be looking to split from 2K Games had the game been poorly received.
Players will now be pleased to learn that the first DLC pack for the game is now available. The Banzai pack includes WWE Hall of Famer’s Yokozuna and Rikishi. While Umaga, Omos and Kacy Catanzaro, now known as Katana Chance, are also included.
As well as the download pack, the latest patch (1.09) for the game was released on April 20th. The biggest update was the addition of the NXT 2.0 arena as a playable arena. There were also been a number of improvements made to general gameplay, updated likeness for a number of WWE Superstars as well as improvements to the online portion of the game.

WWE 2K22 BANZAI PACK DROPS TODAY
DLC Pack #1 headlined by Legends Yokozuna, Rikishi, and Umaga
2K today will roll out the Banzai Pack, the first DLC pack* for WWE 2K22, featuring fan-favorite WWE Legends Yokozuna and Rikishi, “The Samoan Bulldozer” Umaga, current Raw Superstar Omos, and rising NXT star Kacy Catanzaro.

Yokozuna is a WWE Hall of Famer who held the WWE Championship twice, the WWE Tag Team Championship twice, and was also a two-time world champion in sumo wrestling. A fearsome super heavyweight competitor, Yokozuna menaced the likes of Hulk Hogan, Bret “Hit Man” Hart and The Undertaker during his WWE career with the threat of his crushing “Banzai Drop” finishing maneuver.
His cousin Rikishi is also a WWE Hall of Famer, a former Intercontinental Champion, two-time World Tag Team Champion and WWE Tag Team Champion, known for his playful dancing, stylish appearance, and dreaded “Stinkface” attack.
“The Samoan Bulldozer” Umaga – Rikishi’s brother – held the Intercontinental Championship twice and terrorized WWE Superstars with his frightening face paint and hard-hitting offense. All three are members of the famous Anoa’i family, which includes WWE Superstars Roman Reigns, Jimmy and Jey Uso, as well as WWE Legend The Rock.
The 7’3” Omos is a former Raw Tag Team Champion who recently competed against Bobby Lashley in a thrilling match at WrestleMania 38, while Kacy Catanzaro continues to turn heads on NXT with her gymnastic ability and endearing personality.
