How to Perform the Corkscrew Leg Drop in WWE 2K23

RVD pulled off some complicated acrobatics, but this is a bit much.

Originally teased in some of the earliest WWE 2K23 information released, this year's Showcase mode allows players to go up against perhaps the biggest name in WWE history, John Cena. Not only that, but in Showcase mode the matches feature some of the most electrifying in this wrestler's career.

The first match in John Cena's Showcase is his classic 2006 ECW match against Rob Van Dam for the WWE Championship, a challenge where you will have to defeat Cena while completing certain objectives. One of these objectives is much more confusing than the others, requiring a Corkscrew Leg Drop to complete, confusing many players as it doesn't say how to perform one. However, below you can find instructions on when and how to perform this specific move.

What is a Corkscrew Leg Drop and how do I perform one in WWE 2K23?

The objective appears

It is important to note that this objective is not required to complete the fight, so if you simply want to defeat John Cena you can do so without completing any objectives. However, the objective must be completed in order to get the 100% completion achievement for Showcase mode.

While you need to complete a Corkscrew Leg Drop during the fight against John Cena, unfortunately, you cannot do so at any given point. Instead, you need to complete the other objectives until the Corkscrew Leg Drop objective appears on-screen.

How to perform the Corkscrew Leg Drop

Once the objective appears on your screen, you're ready to execute the move. However, part of this move's difficulty is that the objective doesn't explain how to perform it, and the move is quite complicated. The actions required to perform the move are as follows:

  • Throw John Cena out of the ring, then guide him to either the top or bottom side of the ring.
  • From here, grab John and pull him towards one of the barricades nex to the top or bottom ring sides (the barricades are the barriers in front of the fans).
  • Once you have John next to the barricades, press the grapple button. This should sling John over the barricade and will cause Rob Van Dam to jump back up into the ring before automatically performing the Corkscrew Leg Drop.
  • For those unsure of how to use grabbing and grappling, on the grab button is the B button on Xbox and the Circle button on PlayStation, while the grapple button is LB on Xbox and L1 on PlayStation.
