Kai is such a great heel. The night and day difference between her character and her real personality is just a wonderful blend.
Big dakota fan, criminally underrated
@Mike Hughes It's "go away" heat though, he's always had that.
@Noah Webb Does that mean they’re good at their job?😂
It's soooooo good to see big e. It's not the new day, without e there as well
I like how Dakota does Big E's wrestling grunts at 21:06 😂
Miss the big guy
Without big e the new day is 🗑️
I love how Xavier was singing to Cody’s song 😂😂
@Ahmed Yusuf true lol
@KiranK28 I don’t blame him
I love that song
The way he sings batista's song is the best 😂😂
I love how Big E and Woods still call Seth “Captain”. In 2015 when Seth and the New Day almost got together was some of my favorite segments.
Never thought I would be so happy to see someone nod and move their head so much, so happy E is doing well and we all wish you a speedy recovery big man!
I feel like he's gonna retire
Man Big E sounding well and healthy must be the best thing I've seen so far in 2023. Hope he's returning soon to the ring.
Well, I hope this means the gameplay for WarGames will actually be smooth. I also hope this wasn’t the only match they added/improved.
On next gen I think it’s bound to be smooth at least we can hope
@RebelWithoutACaws well they've been running the same match types in real life. What else y'all want? A street fight is basically a no holds barred match anyway. Players rarely ever used Lumberjack matches,the buried alive match was whatever. I wouldn't mind the inferno match though.
@RebelWithoutACaws inferno match sucks you just roll a guy in fire buried alive oky could be brought back, street fight is just a no DQ match and a backstage brawl. Lumber jack is just a singles match with a manager. I can agree with a more free weapons use to be creative like stacking tables. Other then that it's a small list besides just improving existing matches without adding a match that just makes no sense to have it in a game like a lumber jack match, like I said whats the point in having a lumber jack match when you can just be in the match itself or add a manager to be a ringside with you. The only one that makes sense here is buried alive or even casket match or maybe even ambulance match
@Ishmael the I quit match. Buried alive. Inferno match. Better backstage arena. Fight pit. Street fight. Lumberjack. Etc. look at the older games. They had way more match types than what we have now. Also more weapons and the option to stack tables.
@Matt rice I remember when I wanted more people in the ring at one time for the rumble and they gave that to us and now it's another thing lol but to be honest as for match types what other match types are worthy to be in this game wrestling especially in wwe has always just been tag matches TLC MATCHES, steel cage, royal rumble, hell in a cell, elimination chamber, handicap matches, I quit matches, table matches, backstage brawls, that one could be improved, 2k22 pretty much has all this, so idk what people mean by I hope they add more match types, like what's missing that I haven't seen on wwe programming
Dakobra Kai is a gem. Always funny on UUDD.
I hope the collision detection is as improved as it looks. Though nothing will beat Day of Reckoning's interruptable moves
This WWE2K23 Preview Episode on UUDD WAS AWESOME!!!! Really love and enjoy watching the gang play at WARGAMES and I do love the style for the stage especially with the sirens effect, I totally love the part when everyone compares it to the Purge and say the Purge's Legal Crime rules in WWE style, that was so priceless and good lol!!!! And I also was laughing so hard when Xavier & Big E jumped Cody Rhodes in the beginning of the match, I was laughing saying "OMG" during that, ah classic New Day lol- I LOVE THEM SO MUCH!!!!! Looking forward to the next preview episode!!!
Great seeing Big E with the New Day again, looking forwars to the day he returns to the ring! Also love how the game is looking, seriously what an upgrade to the models
@Dave Sánchez What language is that
John Cena downgrade level god if you see the solo entrance video off the game, not in game.
The graphics look great. And 2K22 looked AMAZING! Haven’t been excited for a WWE game in a while. Feels good!
But now i mostly play vanguard zombies im level 30 never done this on cod games
22 is good hell i play 19 still off and on
3:25 The most intense look on the contenders' faces in a simple game of rock papers scissors.
12:27 Unicorn Stampede!!! And New Day heel mode laughter - switch on.
@Jazz and Friends That popped me hahaha
WELCOME BACK CODY, WELCOME BACK
This was a fun watch. Miss Big E 😢. Hope to at least see him on TV 📺, soon even as just a host for wrestlemania 🙏
Excited for the WWE2K23 preview, excited to see Big E on the show, New Day reunion 🙌
being a NWA/WCW guy, to have this in the game and being able to use & create legends of back then, i can easily relive/replay the Dangerous Alliance v Stings Squadron
lol Dakota has been the longest in all the War Games, but, she has also got the most beaten up spots. I hope this was therapeutic at least for her
@TG Zaks Og Four Horseman (Blanchard, Flair , Ole and Arn) vs The Nation of Domination (Rock, DLow, Mark Henry and Farooq)
The Ministry of Darkness (Taker, Bradshaw, Farooq , and Midian) vs The Dangerous Alliance (Stunning Steve Austin, Vader, Rick Rude and Bobby Eaton)
will be ones I'll do too 😁
@Matt rice its 3v3 and 4v4 i believe :)
As someone who watched the original War Games with Dusty/Nikita and The Road Warriors vs The Four Horsemen, this is going to be epic for us old heads lol
@Matt rice that's great
And her also appreciating the aspects of the War Games aesthetics? She lacks appreciation alright.
Love that the art director fits right in with wrestlers with all their tats 🤘🏿
Yes she's awesome she responds to all the WWE 2k fans on Instagram too
Wargames is gonna change everything for online play. 🔥🔥🔥🔥
I was never really of Kai until last years War Games I think she was the glue that held that entire match together and she definitely took the most damage too and my entire outlook on her changed
It’s good to see Big E healthy man hope to see him in the squared circle soon
6:45 love that woods talked about this version of Kurt's theme song. It was so underappreciated
Big E!!!! 🤩 So glad to see him back.
Big E 🤩 torcendo pelo seu retorno.
Kofi and Xavier stomp stunlocking Dakota/Cody for almost a minute straight is funny as hell. I'm surprised they left in the Shayna AI bugging out in the video, though - figured they'd cut around the jank considering this is WWE's official account.
That is a incredible new addition to the game to bring more dynamics
I’m so excited for this the hype is real!!!
its look great, cant wait to try war games! But them getting excited for the same entrances from last year was kinda funny lol
Shayna is so kind and sweet behind the scenes, as is Dakota. I sometimes wish Shayna was a babyface and mixed her true personality with her character more. Lol.
I love this video. Love the gameplay and how animated everybody was especially Dakota.
Que bueno es ver de vuelta a Big E.
Weapon taunts right out of WWF No Mercy. I hope they use it as influence for so much more. 20+ years later and still the goat along with VPW2.
Glad to see BIG E is okay and I'll be happy when/if he returns to the ring
Yo I swear the superstars are always the coolest even out of character 🙌🏾🙌🏾
I would like to know if this could be added as apart of universe mode and could have normal single matches in one of the rings without it only being used for wargames matches
I loved everyone's shock and surprise when the CPU won the first War Games match! 😂
I can't wait for this! this is going to be awesomeness videos from UpUp Down Down!!! Let's Goooo!!!!
BIG E IS HERE !🔥🔥 great to see him
this new mode should be pretty fun, definitely picking this up day 1!
E: I thought that was it
Woods: it's Cena dude
E: oh yeah, silly me
Austin is just huge fan of wwe theme songs I remember he was singing Batista theme during WM, Orton theme during NXT and now he was singing Cody's theme 😂😂
Can't wait 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 BTW good to see Big E
My question is... Will the superstars actually all have their official & correct move sets in 2k23?
as for the pumps and the tech, sidney crosbys cross trainers from 2008 had the pum on the outside of the heel and had a knob for pump or deflate. you turn the knob to lock then pump the small pump and unlock to decompress the air... they can take that and put it back to the tongue
Now I am interested in 2k once again. Finally a new match type.
Watching this definitely made me realize that Dakota was in every women’s Wargames match, along w/Iyo.
UUDD is so educational! 🤣
Xavier really started beating Cody while singing his theme song. Iconic.
This reminds of when my friends in high school played 2k14 6 man hell in the cell. We thought Rey and Yokozuna picking up the steal stairs and running up the ramp was the funniest thing ever and we couldn’t stop laughing.
Glad to see Big E doing well
That's Soo Freaking awesome you can grab weapons before hopin in, I can't wait to play as ricochet in this!!
Game looks good can’t wait to play!
War Games looks so damn good! Looking forward to this game!
Not sure why I’m so impressed with the way Cena unfolds the towel in that entrance but it’s super clean.
So glad to see Big E there & the rest of WWE wrestlers💪💪
Yo me and my brother gonna go wild in these war games matches 🔥
I’m so exited to see Dakota’s model hope she gets The white and Pink hair still
The graphics look to have been improved very significantly, so I'm cautiously optimistic about this game.
I wonder if they'll add elimination to war games. I know it's not a thing but I'd like it
I am very excited for this moment.
Big E still looking massive ! I hope he gets an in ring return soon and stays healthy
Hopefully Big E is in the game as well!
Expected War Games to be in 2k22. Looked forward to it. Disappointed it's not. Can't wait for 2k23 so we can all finally play War Games matches.
Im so freaking happy to see BIG E doing ok that I dont even care about the weird morphing moves and the crazy cpu unlimited taught glitch in the game.
So good to see E. Miss him.
Big E back great to see the guy back hopefully he can return to the ring soon
What a storyline, Shayna of all person doing the peacemaker. Unexpected.
I'm glad to see BIG E, looking good.
Totally hyped to remake my 2k22 stable in this and start playing again!
I just want to know the Presentation names in the Create a superstar mode. That's all I cared about the most. Like if there are any new names on the list.
I can’t wait for this game I loved wwe 2k22 and I hope wwe 2k23 will be even better
27:22 that transition was clean!!!
I just need Xavier to sing “my father SAAAAAAIIIIIIIIDD” just one time in my life
Shania bazler is such a chill person irl but a great heel in character
Online for war games gonna be crazy
"I thought that was it"
"It's Cena ,dude"
"Oh yeah You're right. You're right."
"Who we talkin about"
Like 100% of Cena's matches in his Super Cena era.
My problem with war games is the extra cpu. I'd love if they can program them not to go for the win so the player can has some fun before the match ends
Question? Are the Upupdowndown and left right left right championships in 2k23 like they were in 2k22? Because if they are, I will 100% be buying the game on launch day for sure!!!
There’s no reason to take em out of the franchise. I’m sure they’ll be there
That's a good question
We miss you big E 💯
Will we get 4 on 4 War Games? All I'm seeing in most footage is 3 on 3. Can they not do 4 on 4 with two rings because of some technical issue? I was so hoping for 4 on 4.
You can, it's just not in the version they played
It looks good but they need to fix the animation speed like 2K14. It's too smooth
Everyone moves like heavyweights
We need a fluid gameplay like Here comes the pain, SvR'06 & SvR'11
Definitely need a double championship entrances & Story designer with new & some old cutscenes
Thx y'all for being the 1st to review some gameplay
Good to see Big E again
Hey it’s big e it’s good to see him for sure can’t wait for him to return
Can't wait to stream the War Games match! 🤘
LOL when Cena kicked out. "That's Cena dude." "You're right."
I’m just so happy that the title of this game and the previous finally got the year right!!!
Btw Dakota isn't kidding when she says that War Games is "her kind of match". Her & Io are the only 2 women that have been involved in all 4 WWE women's War Games matches so far (although technically Dakota never entered the ring in one of them, famously).
It's good to see Big E doing well
The character select screen looks so clean
Just came home , the perfect video to end the day with.
Can’t wait first war games then the cena showcase then the rumble I just want to have the game already
I love Dakota and Shayna together they are really cute together
as soon as the game laynches im immediately going in to do NWO vs DX
I’m going to be playing with Vince McMahon when the game comes out 😂
Sooo dope! Can’t wait for 2k23!!!!
My question is why is Kai skipping all the entrance I’m tryna see them😐
Can’t wait to play War Games
I really wish WWE would do War Games matches like they are supposed to be done like the original War Games matches back in the late 80s. I know they will never do that though.
I'm surprised they don't do all John Cena war games
Welcome Back Cody... The beat down was wild. New Day showed no mercy 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
The man, the myth, the LEGEND, BRYAN "We'll try to get it in next year" WILLIAMS!
