WWE video games have skated the line between legit and kayfabe in a pretty dicey manner over the years. Ya know, like how in the game your goal should just be to win matches because that’s the (kayfabe) point, but sometimes they add in stuff like “entertaining” the fans? Well another notch on the “It’s Still Real To Me, Damnit!” belt has appeared; WWE 2K16 will feature rest holds or as they refer to them “working holds”. The in-game logic will be to “sap your opponents strength while regaining yours” so I guess that makes sense.
I can’t wait until there’s a “get yelled at by producer in Gorilla for disrespecting veteran” feature in 2K18.
