How to unlock Ezekiel in 'WWE 2K23.'

In order to unlock Ezekiel, you must progress through the MyRise mode in WWE 2K23. The game mode allows players to define their story within the WWE universe with a male or female wrestler.

MyRise also lets players decide on a Faction to support. Representing these groups are different wrestlers that players can assist in fights or refuse to help, shifting the story's direction and deciding what becomes unlocked during the mode.

To unlock Ezekiel, follow these steps:

  • While in MyRise mode, complete several Loyalty missions to unlock John Cena's Faction.
  • Check the Social Media feed to read John Cena's recorded footage of #SmackDown.
  • Elias and Ezekiel will respond to the feed, sparking a heated discussion. Read each response until the end and choose "Offer to help Cena."
  • A new story mission called "Showcase of the Immorals" will appear, where you must defeat Elias and Ezekial in a 1v2 match to unlock Ezekiel.

You must follow these steps precisely to trigger the mission and unlock Ezekiel. Otherwise, you'll miss your opportunity.

Showdown mode is an optional piece of content in WWE 2K23 that features several unlockable wrestlers that John Cena has faced over the years. By reliving these moments through the virtual body of the wrestler and defeating his legendary opponents, you can unlock them.

Every restricted wrestler in the game requires some effort to unlock them, but with time, you can expand the scope of your roster.

On March 17, WWE 2K23 will launch on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
