Sometimes due to routine/sudden maintenance, the servers might go down. If not, you can contact the WWE 2K22 Support page to create a ticket. You can also follow the 2K Support Twitter page for server related updates. You can also check the server status on your consoles (i.e. Xbox or PlayStation).
