2K unleashed a host of new details on the upcoming WWE 2K22, including the first look at Rey Mysterio's new cover for the game and the release date. 2K also revealed some new images from the game, and one of the most intriguing ones is a screenshot of The Rock facing down John Cena in the ring. Aside from the fact that it features two of the biggest WWE stars ever in the same shot, it is also noteworthy because this is our first look at the new and improved John Cena character model, and so far it looks pretty impressive. You can judge it for yourself in the image below.
2K22's Cena is modeled after the more recent appearances of the WWE star, so that means he's also sporting his more stylish haircut he had in his most recent run, as he was also in the midst of movie and TV projects. He's also rocking his trademark Never Give Up armbands, green wristbands, and jorts, but the thing that immediately sticks out to you is the likeness.
At least from this angle, the likeness looks rather accurate, and so does the likeness of The Rock, so we'll just have to wait and see if they look as accurate when they're actually battling it out in the ring.
