Will WWE 2K22 let you powerbomb MGK as Kevin Owens?

Machine Gun Kelly is no stranger to WWE. He's appeared on RAW three times - in 2012, 2015, and 2017. On the June 15th, 2015 episode, MGK performed live on the show, only to be confronted by Kevin Owens afterwards. Kelly took exception to Owens' refusal to shake his hand, and struck him. This led to Owens picking Kelly up and Powerbombing him off the stage.


Say what you want about Machine Gun Kelly or his music, but that was pretty gutsy.

Kelly's inclusion here isn't the first time a celebrity has made an appearance as a playable character in a WWE video game. In 2001, Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst was an unlockable wrestler in WWE SmackDown!: Just Bring It for the PlayStation 2. Then, in 2015, actor and former California governor Arnold Schwartzenegger appeared in WWE 2K16 as the T-800 from the first two Terminator films.
