The MyCareer Mode in WWE 2K19 offers multiple fighting styles for your MyPlayer. There are five core fighting styles for you to choose from, each of which further divides into two sub-styles (which you can think of as a kind of specialization). There’s no real best or worst fighting style—in the end, it comes down to what kind of playstyle suits you the best. With that in mind, here we go:

  • Powerhouse: As the name suggests, they unleash devastating strikes and power moves. They have high Power and Grappling. The two sub-styles are Beast (grapple style and damage recovery), and Hero (Reversal Offense and Strike Speed)
  • Cruiser: Quick and agile, and nimble on their feet, they have great Speed and Agility (and yes, those are two separate attributes for some reason). The two sub-styles are Technician Cruiser (Grapples and Submissions), and Luchador (aerial combat)
  • Technician: Relying on, well, technique to outlast their opponents in a game of attrition, their strengths are Technique and Grappling. The two sub-classes are UK Strong Style (Arm Power and Environmental Offense) and Shooter (Submission and Stamina)
  • Striker: Strikers hit harder than any other style in the game, even more than Powerhouse. They specialize in Striking (duh) and Stamina, and have two sub-classes: Brawler (movement, and combat outside of the ring) and Strong Style (Leg Power and Durability)
  • Giant: Using Power and Toughness, this style helps you dominate on the basis of your sheer power. Your two sub-styles are Monster (Durability and Power) and Big Man (Agility and Aerial Offense)



These are available in Quick Edit, and are based on existing fighter movesets, and fall under the fighting styles.

The Towers mode is likely to be an attraction for many WWE fans. It basically puts you against WWE Superstars and Legends in a series of matches, one after the other. Each match has a unique theme, and a special victory condition.

You can play the Towers Mode in two ways:

  • Steps: You can save after every game, and obviously pick back up from your previous victory if you do lose
  • Gauntlet: Play it in one go. You can’t save your progress, and if you die, it’s back to square one.
