Update Your GPU Drivers
GPU drivers can often be the cause of performance issues and crashes in a ton of PC games from Elden Ring to Cyberpunk. Make sure your GPU drivers are up-to-date, if not, update your drivers and try starting WWE 2K22 again. You can find the latest Nvidia drivers at their official website or through the Geforce Experience client. AMD users can also find the latest drivers on AMD’s official website.
Restart your PC
Sometimes it can also be an issue with your PC, there could be a potentially draining task running on the background or the PC just needs a fresh restart at times.
Check Your Task Manager
Often times there are tasks running in the background that choke your PC’s performance, in that case, it is a good idea to check what’s running in the background and shutting it down using the task manager. You can open the task manager using Ctrl + Alt + Del and select “Task Manager”.
