Top 10 Worst Story Modes in Wrestling Video Games

I’ve spent a significant portion of my life playing wrestling video games, and it’s probably one of the main reasons why my social and romantic lives are both in the state they are. The majority of the many, many hours I have sunk into these grappling games were spent playing story modes – career modes, roads to Wrestlemanias, season modes, whatever name they were under, I was obsessed with them. Over the years, I’ve played plenty of fantastic story modes (click here for a list on those), but I’ve also wasted plenty of hours on some absolute stinkers that left me feeling bored, and at times, angry. So, with many years of experience sitting alone in my house having nothing better to do than create CAWs and play through their wrestling journeys, I’ve put my knowledge to good use by ranking the worst of the worst. Here are my Top 10 Worst Story Modes in Wrestling Video Games.
