"WWE 2K20" Gets A New Patch & Southpaw Wrestling DLC

While WWE 2K20 has had a ton of issues that are still being addressed and felt, the game just got a new patch trying to correct many of them. You can read the full patch notes here, but that's isn't the most important part of the latest update. The developers have added new Southpaw Wrestling content. If you don't know what that is, it's based on a set of parody videos many of the wrestlers created that harken back to the old territory days where your local wrestling organization was the center of attention. With many of them playing characters they made up on the spot. While the videos were fun, the content is… well… sorely lacking. Where the wrestlers made fun characters, WWE 2K20 seems to have just made parody '80s versions of wrestlers you already know. You can read more about it below and check out the trailer for the content. Funny enough, set to the old Saturday Night's Main Event theme.

New Showcase

Southpaw Regional Wrestling kicks off with its biggest show of the summer, but there's just one problem. Evil banker Mr. Mackelroy has purchased the company and intends to destroy it!

Fortunately for the Southpaw crew, fine print in the contract includes a loophole allowing Southpaw to win back ownership. They must beat Mr. Mackelroy's intimidating squad in a best-of-five series of matches. Can they do the impossible and beat the bully?
