    Hi @Butchervdcr

    To check which apps are using your NVIDIA GPU, click on this arrow on your taskbar and click on this icon. If your game is using the Nvidia gpu, it will show here when you play the game.




    Try the following fix to force WWE 2K18 to run on your GTX1060:-
    Right Click on desktop>>NVIDIA Control Panel>>Manage 3D settings>>Program settings
    Select your game from the list and then select NVIDIA as the preferred graphics processor, then click Apply to save the changes. Like the below picture.



    This should fix you issue.
