A Slipknot fan who is playing WWE 2K22 decided to make a custom avatar in the likeness of band guitarist Mick Thompson and have said avatar beat-up Machine Gun Kelly.

For those who are not aware, WWE 2K22 is a video game series that features famous wrestlers from the WWE, like that of Becky Lynch, Roman Reigns, Liv Morgan, and many more. A feature that appears in some titles is the means for players to create their very own wrestler; so one gamer thought it would be cool to re-create that of Slipknot guitarist Mick Thompson.

But the gamer decided to take things further with his custom Mick Thompson avatar, for they took said avatar out for a spin and fought a digital Machine Gun Kelly. At this point you may be asking, “Why is Machine Gun Kelly in this video game?” Well that is actually a pretty easy answer – the WWE and Machine Gun Kelly decided to collaborate together for this game. Hence why the pop-punk star appears as a playable character within WWE 2K22.

The gamer who decided to create the digital Slipknot member decided to upload some footage to the Slipknot Reddit page, which features a digital Thompson going at a digital Machine Gun Kelly with a shovel. You can check out this footage for yourself below.
