Hulk Hogan and John Cena at WrestleMania XXX!

Hulk Hogan and John Cena at WrestleMania 30!

Hulk Hogan and John Cena at WrestleMania 30!

Two of the most iconic faces to ever grace the WWE Universe are Hulk Hogan and John Cena. With Hulk Hogan’s return to a WWE ring on the way to WrestleMania XXX, he will be hosting the big event and has constantly eluded to the fact that he is not afraid of getting physical with any WWE Superstar that thinks he has lost a step. John Cena has never shown any aggression towards Hulk Hogan, but he has stated over the years that Hogan is one of his all time favorites, and with his problems he continues to have with the Wyatt Family, who better to call on than the Immortal Hulk Hogan for help? With a Hulk Hogan Mattel WWE figure on the horizon, fans will soon be able to re-enact Hulk Hogan rescuing John Cena from the Wyatt Family, whether it happens in the WWE or not!

Mattel WWE Series 39 John Cena!

Mattel WWE Series 39 John Cena!

John Cena sees more Mattel WWE releases than almost every other WWE Superstar, and his latest is a perfect representation of the leader of the CeNation. With his perfectly cropped haircut, huge muscles and shorts ring attire in WWE Series 39, John Cena is ready, will and able to defend his own honor anytime, any place. He will never admit to being anything other than indestructible, and despite the fear of the Wyatt Family he is experiencing, he would never ask for help from Hulk Hogan. If Hogan were to show up in his defense, however, Cena would be hard pressed not to accept.

Mattel WWE Series 39 Bray Wyatt!

Mattel WWE Series 39 Bray Wyatt!

Bray Wyatt is terrifying both John Cena and the WWE Universe with his cult-like attacks and targeting of Cena himself. With his first Mattel WWE release in Series 39, he is not only making his presence known in the ring, but in the wrestling figure world. The figure is a must have for those looking to really put the pressure on their John Cena collection. After all, one Bray Wyatt shouldn’t be able to successfully defeat over 100 John Cena figures, right?…Right?

Hulk Hogan has returned to the WWE and has (so far) stayed out of most of the affairs of the WWE Superstars. Looking as if he hasn’t changed a bit, Hulk Hogan could shock and surprise fans with a return to the ring in 2014 if he is in as good a shape as he claims to be. If he does return to the ring, a Mattel WWE Hulk Hogan figure featuring his modern day look would be a necessity. Wrestling figure fans could face off their Hulk Hogan figure with any Superstar on the WWE roster that also has a figure, leaving an endless amount of possible fantasy match-ups. A boa accessory, bandana or sunglasses wouldn’t hurt, either.

If John Cena were indeed to receive back-up from Hulk Hogan in his challenges against Bray Wyatt, the Wyatt Family would be sure to follow. Luke Harper and Erick Rowan have been part of the relentless attacks against Cena and would defend their Wyatt Family leader to the absolute end, even if it meant having to stand up to an icon like Hulk Hogan. With a Mattel WWE release in Battle Packs 28, both Harper and Rowan can join in on any conflict of Bray Wyatt’s against WWE figures, including Hogan.

Mattel WWE Series 41 Lineup Revealed!

Mattel WWE Series 41 Lineup Revealed!

Mattel WWE Series 41 Lineup Revealed!

The Mattel WWE Series 41 lineup has recently been announced, and it features characters long in need of basic Mattel WWE attire updates. Wrestling figure fans are excited about the mix of newcomers and solid Superstars getting new treatments. WWE Series 41 includes:

  • Daniel Bryan
  • Drew McIntyre
  • Santino Marella
  • Antonio Cesaro
  • Fandango
  • Bray Wyatt

Daniel Bryan has been leading the Yes! Movement and proving just how important he is to the future and survival of the WWE. Praised by fans and fellow Superstars alike, he has received bearded wrestling figure treatments in the past, but none as scraggly and scruffy as his current look. This release gives the opportunity for a new and improved, Yes! Movement Daniel Bryan full of facial expression and bearded goodness.

The ‘Chosen One’ Drew McIntyre has come a long way since his days as the approved future by Mr. McMahon. Now a member of 3MB or 3 Man Band, he rocks a cowboy style and yells and screams on his way to the ring like a true musician. His new attire has long been sought after and fans will finally be treated to a Drew McIntyre more in the vein of rock and roll.

Antonio Cesaro has taken full advantage of his ‘friendship’ with Jack Swagger and approval of Zeb Colter, becoming one of the quickest rising Superstars in the WWE. His partnership with the ‘Real Americans’ may not last forever, but his latest Mattel WWE treatment will most likely reflect his time as the protégé of Zeb Colter and the man gaining the jealous ire of the All American American, Jack Swagger.

With one of the most popular figure treatments last year and one of the hottest holiday toys, Fandango has a lot to brag about when it comes to being represented as a wrestling figure. With his array of colorful outfits and dance-style ring pants, it was only a matter of time before Mattel released another, this time possibly carrying a new facial hair style.

Santino Marella attacks with the ‘cobra’ when no one is looking, but has lately not been hiding much in view of the WWE Universe. Teaming with NXT standout Emma and offering a silliness that no one else in the WWE seems to, Santino hasn’t changed his look much in the past few years, but with an unlimited amount of facial expressions there’s no telling what his Mattel WWE figure could offer.

The Wyatt Family has taken the WWE Universe by storm. Their leader, Bray Wyatt, has convinced many in the WWE and beyond to be extremely afraid of he and his band of followers. A thorn in the side of John Cena, Bray Wyatt will see a Mattel WWE release in Series 39, but this could offer a new facial expression or t-shirt as he has shown to be well versed in bayou-style fashion. Wrestling figure fans will no doubt follow the buzzards to Bray Wyatt’s latest release.

Mattel WWE Elite 28 John Cena!

Mattel WWE Elite 28 John Cena!

John Cena, the WWE face and family friendly powerhouse gets his latest Mattel WWE Elite treatment in what will most likely reflect his current attire. It is difficult to say as to whether the figure will glow in the dark in any way, but it is a possibility.

Mattel WWE Elite 28 Demolition Crush!

Mattel WWE Elite 28 Demolition Crush!

For the Mattel WWE fans who collected the WWE Legends line, this figure comes as a sigh of relief. Those who have collected Mattel WWE Demolition Ax and Mattel WWE Demolition Smash figures can now add Demolition Crush to their collections! The three team members had an ongoing rivalry with the Legion of Doom and were a fan favorite for many.

Mattel WWE Elite 28 Bray Wyatt!

Mattel WWE Elite 28 Bray Wyatt!

Bray Wyatt’s Mattel WWE Elite 28 figure will be his first time in the Elite line and more than likely offer some interesting accessories. Fans can definitely expect his trademark hat and hopefully a possible apron or a rocking chair for those wishful thinkers. Either way the figure should be a stand out for the set.

Mattel WWE Elite 28 Big Show!

Mattel WWE Elite 28 Big Show!

The Mattel WWE Elite 28 Big Show could prove to be a dud with a similar release to his previous Elites, but the chance at a Big Show from a different classic phase or including a crying feature is too good not to consider. His huge hands, also known as WMD’s, will most likely be included.

Mattel WWE Elite 28 Triple H!

Mattel WWE Elite 28 Triple H!

The current WWE COO and member of The Authority has not regularly been seen in wrestling attire since helping Randy Orton win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, but his short hair and a possible suit could definitely be included in this Mattel WWE Elite 28 release.

Mattel WWE Elite 28 Daniel Bryan!

Mattel WWE Elite 28 Daniel Bryan!

An updated Daniel Bryan with ever-changing beard is a huge desire of Mattel WWE wrestling figure fans, as the Yes-master becomes more and more popular. An updated Daniel Bryan Elite will most certainly come with a t-shirt of some kind but more importantly, a new look that reflects his changing style.

The Wyatt Family…a Thorn in the Side of John Cena!

Since debuting in the WWE, the Wyatt Family have shown their strength, power, and the tightness of their group. A family like no other, they made an initial impact by taking out WWE Superstars like Kane, Kofi Kingston and The Miz. They may have been bested by Daniel Bryan but to keep the statistics in their favor they have gone after arguably the greatest possible challenge the WWE has to offer. That challenge goes by the name of John Cena.

Mattel WWE Series 39 John Cena!

Mattel WWE Series 39 John Cena!

John Cena, here in Mattel WWE Series 39, has spent his time trying to have an effect on the travesty that is Randy Orton gaining the WWE World Heavyweight Championship through cheating, but recently the Wyatt Family have forced him to realign his sights and take them on because of numerous sneak attacks. Cena is unclear as to why Bray Wyatt has chosen him as a target and it has made his main objectives difficult. John Cena can no longer look at Bray Wyatt as simply a nuisance and must treat him with the respect of a face to face challenger.

Mattel WWE Battle Packs 28 Luke Harper and Erick Rowan!

Mattel WWE Battle Packs 28 Luke Harper and Erick Rowan!

Helping Bray Wyatt act out his sneaky ways are the other members of the Wyatt Family, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan. Luke Harper and Erick Rowan will receive their first Mattel WWE wrestling figures in Mattel WWE Battle Packs 28. They are a fixture in the tag team division, have shown that they can suffer defeat and bounce back infinitely stronger and best of all for Bray Wyatt, both men will do his bidding at the drop of a hat. Harper and Rowan are invaluable parts of Bray Wyatt’s strategy and are no doubt highly sought after for Mattel WWE wrestling figure fans.

Mattel WWE Series 39 Bray Wyatt!

Mattel WWE Series 39 Bray Wyatt!

The Mattel WWE Series 39 Bray Wyatt action figure will be the first time the leader of the Wyatt family has seen himself in wrestling figure form. A miniature plastic idol is perfect for the leader of this cult-like family as they slowly but surely do their best to take over the WWE. Bray Wyatt’s headsculpt, accurate tattoos, white pants and black and white wrestling shows prove him to be the type of leader that is simple but effective in his actions all the way down to how he dresses. Wrestling figure fans will no doubt look to re-enact the Sister Abigail on unsuspecting opponents, knocking them out and planting a kiss of certain doom on their foreheads.

The Wyatt Family will finally be released as Mattel WWE figures, and most wrestling figure fans will no doubt have a John Cena figure available to fight off the oncoming attacks of the Mattel WWE wrestling figure world’s newest and most formidable foes, Bray Wyatt, Erick Rowan and Luke Harper.

Daniel Bryan…Free and On His Own! YES! YES! YES!

Daniel Bryan, after a calculated attack that had the entire WWE Universe fooled, has broken free from the control of the Wyatt Family and now stands to take on any and all challenges by himself! Luckily, the American Dragon was only playing possum when he fell victim to Bray Wyatt’s evil tactics. Now, Daniel Bryan is back to the bearded underdog that fans love, and he has more looks to add to his arsenal. Here are a few that would make great Mattel WWE figures.

Mattel WWE Daniel Bryan in Wyatt Family Attire!

Mattel WWE Daniel Bryan in Wyatt Family Attire!

Daniel Bryan didn’t only succumb to an attack by the Wyatt Family, he became one of them. Wrestling in a long coverall outfit reminiscent of the other members and even Michael Myers from Halloween, Bryan had many convinced he had joined the cult-like family for good. A Mattel WWE figure representing this would immortalize a dark time for him.

Money in the Bank Winner Daniel Bryan with jacket in Mattel WWE form!

The look that began it all, Daniel Bryan’s confidence began to heat up as did his presence and the course of his actions. He sported a leather jacket and short haired, tight bearded attire on his way to the ring, ready to strike and capture the World Heavyweight Championship at any moment. The jacket and briefcase would make for two sought after accessories that wrestling figure fans would covet. A short haired look before the ‘YES’ and ‘NO’ days would also add to Bryan’s classic style figure.

Daniel Bryan Mattel WWE Figure with 'Respect the Beard' Shirt!

Daniel Bryan Mattel WWE Figure with ‘Respect the Beard’ Shirt!

Even Mr. McMahon can see that Daniel Bryan’s popularity is a force to be reckoned with. Pointing to the sky and leading fans along with chants of agreement, Bryan began wearing a ‘Respect the Beard’ shirt around the time of his WWE Championship win (and loss) at Summerslam 2013. The shirt cemented Bryan’s place as a top WWE Superstar with more than just a catch phrase, but a complete and total image. The attire underneath the shirt could no doubt be based on his match with John Cena and his subsequent match with Randy Orton.

Modern Day Mattel WWE Daniel Bryan!

Modern Day Mattel WWE Daniel Bryan!

Daniel Bryan has worn wrestling tights with more of a reddish-maroon base these days, making a brighter color his style. With his long hair, sometimes messily combed back and big ol’ beard, his modern day look into 2014 is a clear composite of all Daniel Bryan’s qualities. With dragons still included and sheer wrestling ability to boot, his nickname ‘The American Dragon’ is extremely fitting. A new figure could be based on his appearance at Royal Rumble 2014 or even better, a close look at his likely WrestleMania XXX appearance! Daniel Bryan is in the WWE for good, making his mark and whether ‘upper management’ likes it or not, becoming one of the most popular WWE Superstars the world has ever seen.

Daniel Bryan’s Year End Transition To The Dark Side!

Daniel Bryan has been a special favorite of fans since his underdog challenge against John Cena for the WWE Championship at Summerslam in 2013. He was beloved before but The American Dragon is cemented in the hearts of the WWE Universe as one of their favorite Superstars since being duped by Randy Orton and being harassed by the Wyatt family. That is all changing now as Daniel Bryan seems to have joined up with the cult-like faction, leaving RAW with them on the final show of 2013. His year can easily be showcased in these Mattel WWE releases:

Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan face off in Mattel WWE Battle Packs 27!

Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan face off in Mattel WWE Battle Packs 27!

Randy Orton cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase on Daniel Bryan with the help of special guest referee Triple H much to the dismay of the WWE Universe. Due in Early March, Mattel WWE Battle Packs 27 will feature both Orton and Bryan and possibly the red Money in the Bank briefcase Orton used to cheat his way to the top in a move that was best for business.

Mattel WWE Series 30 Daniel Bryan!

Mattel WWE Series 30 Daniel Bryan!

Daniel Bryan’s first Mattel WWE figure with a long, full beard came in Mattel WWE Series 30, shouting and screaming, most likely at his former partner, Kane. It took WWE wrestling figure fans by surprise as it included a newly sculpted head and NO trunks that weren’t expected as soon as they appeared.

Daniel Bryan in Mattel WWE Series 35!

Daniel Bryan in Mattel WWE Series 35!

Whether a fan of YES, NO or just the beard, Daniel Bryan finally has the chops to include many levels of a WWE Superstar and it’s fully embodied in Mattel WWE Series 35. With a flaming red and white dragon color scheme and logos, Bryan has a figure that represents his current state perfectly.

At least, it did represent him perfectly until the actions of the Wyatt family. We will not know until 2014 exactly what happened to Daniel Bryan after RAW went off the air. This marks a very dark end to a very bright year.

Follow The Buzzards to Mattel WWE Wyatt Family Figures!

Frighteningly real and entering the arena only by the light of a bayou lantern, The Wyatt Family have enthralled the WWE Universe since debuting this summer. Making quick work of WWE roster staples like Kane and The Miz, it was only a matter of time before the Wyatt family received their own Mattel WWE figures. The first to be revealed was this Bray Wyatt Mattel WWE wrestling figure at Ringside Fest X:

Mattel WWE Elite Bray Wyatt!

Not seen but never far behind their leader, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan will be future Mattel WWE figures. Harper sports a dirty shirt and a flannel:
