ESRB explains its Teen rating for WWE 2K20

The Entertainment Software Rating Board has revealed its summary for WWE 2K20. The wrestling game ended up with a Teen rating due to contents categorized as Alcohol Reference, Mild Blood, Mild Language, Suggestive Themes and Violence. You can find the full ESRB description below:

This is a wrestling game in which players select real-world competitors from the WWE roster, compete in matches, and progress through multiple storylines. Players can perform a variety of wrestling moves (e.g., throws, holds, grapples) as well as punch and kick opponents. Some matches allow players to use chairs, sledgehammers, and baseball bats to strike opponents. Blood sometimes appears on wrestlers’ faces, typically caused by object/weapon impacts, and certain other moves (e.g. mounted punches, knee drops).


The game contains some suggestive material: female wrestlers wearing revealing outfits that expose deep cleavage; wrestlers depicted with jiggling breasts (no nudity); dialogue such as “[I]t’s actually more like a trick down my pants…Let me give you a sneak peek.” Some dialogue and wrestlers’ moves reference alcohol (e.g., “Tequila Sunrise”; “Harlem Hangover”; “Behold, the WWE Universe in all its beer-chugging, junk food-eating glory”; “I’d rather be in my private dressing room enjoying champagne.”). The words “a*s,” “b*tch,” and “p*ssed” appear in the game.
