The focus of WWE 2K23 is none other than the legendary John Cena! One of the greatest WWE superstars of modern times is not only on the cover of every version of the new 2K game, but his rich career is also the topic of this year’s Showcase mode. Although in this mode you will play as John Cena’s opponents who actually managed to defeat him, there are a large number of versions of the legendary pro wrestler in the game.
From blonde-haired Prototype days in developmental, through many colors of t-shirts and baseball caps, all the way to the playable invisible Cena – it’s all in there. However, there is another version of the Champ in WWE 2K23 that is not so easy to unlock, it is a skin that makes Cena look like a Mattel action figure – let’s find out how to unlock it.
