How to carry an opposing wrestler in WWE 2K23
When attempting to carry a wrestler in WWE 2K23, be mindful first on how to initiate a grab. This is because grabs are essentially required in order to start a carry. Users can grab an opposing wrestler by hitting B (for Xbox) or Circle (for PlayStation) on the controller. It does, however, help to try to weaken the opponent before doing this. Otherwise, one becomes more prone to a reversal that can lead to a change of fate for you. Try using some light attacks or combos to do this.
Now, once you’ve initiated a grab, the next step is to hit either RB (for Xbox) or R1 (for PlayStation). If it is successful, the user player will then be able to initiate the carry. Once you’ve lifted the other wrestler up, you will then move around with the wrestler with the left stick. Keep in mind, though, that you’ll only have a limited time to do this. If you hold on to the wrestler for too long, the opponent will be able to reverse.
A carry is important for a number of different reasons. Not only will one have access to a certain subset of moves and combos, but carries are also useful for tables matches. Players can use a carry in order to throw a wrestler onto a table.
