London is a vastly underated superstar and because of this, it limits his effectiveness. London cannot lift the majority of wrestlers in the game and therefore playing as Paul London requires more skill than playing with a character like John Cena or The Undertaker. London is a cruiserweight and therefore to play as him effectively the player must act like a cruiserwieght. London's strength lies in his speed, stamina and technical ability. This means he is effective in Ladder matches but is weak when it comes to taking shots from weapons meaning he is best suited to single matches. Because of this he is not effective in confined match types such as steel cages but can be fairly useful in The Elimination Chamber match type.

London need to be used as a cruiserweight and therefore he is better suited to quick grapples, frequent pins and highlying attacks as well as running grapples and strikes. London has a grat ability to wear down an opponent's stamina and then allows the player to take advantage. His key moves are his Shooting Star Press, 450 Splash, Dropsault, Running Neck Breaker, Spinning Heel Kick and Mule Kick/Mushroom Stomp. London is better suited against wrestlers with similar stats, such as Rey Mysterio, but is more than capable with hanging out with the bigger wrestlers.
