Earl Hebner has officiated over 10,000 wrestling matches between his time in the WWE and TNA. Acting as the senior official in both companies, he is perhaps best known for his involvement in the Montreal Screwjob. He ‘screwed’ Bret Hart by counting quickly when Hart was pinned to award the championship to Shawn Michaels.
Legendary Referee Earl Hebner!
Referee action figures have been limited to guest referee figures of wrestling superstars, so the release of Earl Hebner’s Jakks Legends of the Ring figure marks the first time an actual official has been made into an action figure in at least a decade. Earl Hebner has been trusted plenty of times with calling a match down the middle, but you can never be too sure.
Jakks Legends of the Ring Earl Hebner Exclusive!
When having matches with your wrestling figures, you can use Earl Hebner as an official referee. It will be up to you whether or not he can be trusted when officiating, but it’s a fact that he is the best man (or referee wrestling figure) for the job!

WrestleMania is rich with wrestling history, heritage and stories. Mattel commemorates WrestleMania with the WrestleMania Heritage series, currently showcased in Mattel WWE Series 37. This set has hot up-and-comers, classic stars and even a colorful manager that have all made impactful appearances at the WWE’s biggest show, WrestleMania. The set includes:
Still in question is what Mr. Perfect Curt Hennig’s figure in this set will look like. Many fans are hoping for the classic yellow and blue look that made an appearance in Mattel WWE Legends 3, but Mr. Perfect has one many other perfect colors, including red, orange and green.
The Animal Batista is making a major return to the WWE ring on January 20th, 2014. Just in time is his Mattel WWE Series 37 figure with a classic WrestleMania style look. Parted hair and less tattoos show a softer, more heroic side of Batista that hasn’t been seen in a long, long time.
Roman Reigns is one of the hottest rising WWE Superstars. With a masterful spear and an intimidating size, he’s headed for super stardom and beloved by fans despite his association with the villainous stable, The Shield. His Mattel WWE Series 37 figure is intense, sporting a shouting headsculpt and embodies the power of his first WrestleMania appearance.
Ryback has been on a bit of a slump as of late, and he even took a loss to Mark Henry at WrestleMania, but everyone remembers his marching power over the World’s Strongest Man and the sound it made when he went down. He’s wearing the same outfit from WrestleMania 29 in Mattel WWE Series 37.
Mattel WWE Series 37 Zeb Colter!
Zeb Colter appeared in 2012 claiming to be the uncle of Jack Swagger and speaking with the attitude of a man fit for a tea party. At WrestleMania 29 he spoke of his disappointment in the values of every American except himself and The All American American. He finally gets his first Mattel WWE figure in Series 37.
Mattel WWE Series 37 Randy Orton!
Randy Orton has been a staple at many WrestleManias, taking on John Cena, CM Punk and even Triple H among others. He may not have had his career topping moments at the big event but to leave his name out of the WrestleMania conversation is nearly impossible to do. He looks just like the Apex Predator in Mattel WWE Series 37, calculated and cocky.

Rumors have been running rampant that the beastly Brock Lesnar has been secretly planning a return to the octagon with UFC. He has openly and publicly claimed he is retired from his MMA career and vowed never to return, but rumors of some sort of superfight including Brock are the talk of the mixed martial arts town. This may seem difficult when considering his WWE career, but fans continue to speculate. Since debuting in the WWE, Brock Lesnar has been considered one of the most feared men on the planet, and his sheer wrestling ability is a major part of that. With WWE Undisputed Championship included, The Ringside Collectibles Exclusive ‘Here Comes The Pain’ Mattel WWE Brock Lesnar action figure embodies Brock’s first and most impactful WWE run:
Brock Lesnar Mattel WWE Ringside Collectibles Here Comes the Pain Exclusive!
Since returning to the WWE, Brock Lesnar has sported an MMA-style attire, including his sponsors and logos on his shorts. Although these cannot be captured in a Mattel WWE figure due to cross-licensing issues, the shorts and the fighting spirit remain, like in Brock’s Mattel WWE Elite 19 figure. This is the current, modern day version of The Next Big Thing:
Brock Lesnar in Mattel WWE Elite 19!
Since Brock Lesnar enjoys time away from the ring and can’t always be present after leaving UFC for a WWE return, he has pulled no punches in maintaining a representative. That representative is none other than Paul Heyman, ECW founder and best friend of the big, bad brawler. Mattel captured the likeness of their business arrangement in Mattel WWE Battle Packs 25. The first ever Mattel WWE Paul Heyman figure is included:
Mattel WWE Battle Packs 25 Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar!
Only time will tell if the very private Brock Lesnar is planning a return to the UFC. Will he balance his time between both companies? Is the idea that he could return to professional fighting just hot air? One thing is certain, Mattel has given fans excellent versions of this very big, very intimidating man.
Any WWE wrestling fan watching from the years of 1998-2002 remember the Attitude Era. One of the most popular aspects of the Attitude Era was the Hardcore Championship and its’ ’24/7 rule!’ Instated during the height of the championship’s popularity, the winner had to defend the title 24 hours a day and seven days a week from any oncoming challengers! Here are the Mattel WWE figures you need to have your own WWE Hardcore Championship wrestling figure circuit:
Mattel WWE Ringside Collectibles Exclusive Hardcore Kane!
Kane held the Hardcore Championship multiple times, so his Ringside Collectibles Exclusive includes the Hardcore Championship. The belt will get your hardcore matches started.
Mattel WWE Elite 26 Road Dogg Jesse James!
The Road Dogg defeated Big Boss Man during a very dark time to become Hardcore Champion. Although he didn’t hold the title for long, it cemented his place in hardcore action by proving he could beat a former world title contender if the stakes were right.
Christian in Mattel WWE Elite 20!
Christian knew that the Hardcore Championship totally reeked of awesomeness so he snuck around and weaseled his way into multiple wins of the battered gold. Even defeating Molly Holly at WrestleMania, he took heavy advantage of the 24/7 rule.
Mattel WWE Elite 22 The Giant!
Big Show captured The Hardcore Championship three times during his original WWE tenure, making a massive impact after coming over from WCW. The Giant figure may not be the exact era, but it is very close and with an nWo shirt, it would add extra spice to those wanting to recreate a WCW invasion! If you want a more accurate style, though, you could shoot for Big Show’s Mattel WWE Pay Per View 11 figure.
The Mattel WWE Elite 27 Rob Van Dam figure will provide the ECW legend’s hardcore presence for any Hardcore Championship match. He unified the title with the Intercontinental Championship, so it may have ended with RVD, but it can go on forever with your Mattel WWE figures.

After returning to the WWE with an angry thought process, Tensai cooled down when he joined the party-all-night mentality of Brodus Clay and his Funkadactyls. This friendship created the team Tons of Funk, two big fellas partying their way all the way to the ring:
Brodus Clay and Tensai are Tons of Funk!
Recently, Brodus Clay has been losing his party all the time attitude. After teaching Tensai so much about having a good time, Brodus has lost sight of what it means to enjoy yourself and has begun acting out and moving down a belligerent pathway. Tensai has tried to maintain a cool demeanor but it’s clear he’s getting more and more upset with Brodus Clay’s uncool actions as time goes on. In any case, they both are represented well in Mattel WWE action figures, like Tensai’s Mattel WWE Elite 23 figure, including entrance gear:
Mattel WWE Elite 23 Tensai!
In Mattel WWE Elite 25, Brodus Clay’s sporting some multi-colored, colorful white and orange entrance gear:
Mattel WWE Elite 25 Brodus Clay!
Only time will tell if Brodus Clay and Tensai’s friendship will last, but in the meantime, Tons Of Funk is slated to be released together in Mattel WWE Battle Packs 27. Will they last long enough to see their commemorative Battle Pack be released?
Wrestlers in the WWE often can’t settle their differences in a regular match. When a grudge match just won’t do, the stakes are raised with a steel cage. When two Superstars are trapped together in a steel cage, they have to work out their differences with more than just punches and slams. They work them out in a cage match!
Mattel WWE Steel Cage Accessory!
The Mattel WWE Steel Cage Accessory fits on to any basic ring you can get your hands on. With opening doors and two breakaway panels, the Steel Cage Accessory brings an entirely new physical danger to any wrestling action figure match.
Mattel WWE Steel Cage Accessory in action!
Wrestling action figures need more than just four corners of a ring to fight the good fight. Cold, hard steel (in the form of plastic) is just what the Dr. Isaac Yankem ordered. The Mattel WWE Steel Cage Accessory solves that problem perfectly!

Mattel WWE Elite 27 is one of the most anticipated Mattel WWE wrestling action figures sets of all time. Featuring three Flashbacks and three sought after modern day Superstars, this set is bound to be one of the most popular Mattel WWE Elite sets ever. The set features:
Rob Van Dam
The Undertaker has yet to have a main line Mattel WWE Elite figure sporting his new hairdo. This will hopefully be the figure that those who love the current Phenom have been waiting for.
Fandango’s first Mattel WWE Elite figure has extra articulation and a vest so fans can re-enact all his entrance shenanigans and pose him as a true dancer.
Kofi Kingston’s figure is still a bit of a mystery. Will it include an Intercontinental Championship from his latest short-lived run? Or will he be sporting his new long tights?
Once one of the most popular WWE Superstars, Rikishi Fatu grooved his way into the hearts of many Attitude Era fans. His figure will most likely offer plenty of stink-faces to go around.
Rob Van Dam triumphantly returned to the WWE at Money in The Bank 2013. A classic and beloved Superstar, this is his first Mattel WWE figure so fans of The Whole F’n Show are truly excited.
Affectionately called Mr. Ass, Billy Gunn makes his return to WWE action figures following his long-time partner Road Dogg in Mattel WWE Elite 26. Having the New Age Outlaws together again will be perfect for Attitude Era enthusiasts.
When you think of WrestleMania, many illustrious names come to mind. To celebrate WrestleMania XXX, Mattel has chosen four of those names to release in a special Mattel WWE Series set that are synonymous in the thoughts of many with WrestleMania. The set will include:
John Cena in Mattel WWE WrestleMania XXX Series!
The inclusion of John Cena is no surprise as his WrestleMania success has overshadowed that of many of his peers. Having won World Championships at the big event multiple times, John Cena is a WrestleMania staple and looks to continue similar success at WrestleMania XXX.
(First Look) The Undertaker in Mattel WWE WrestleMania XXX Series!
Perhaps the most successful WrestleMania participant ever, The Undertaker carries the longest running WrestleMania streak. At 21-0, The Deadman has been participating almost as long as the event has existed and looks to bring the number to 22-0 at WrestleMania XXX.
The Rock in Mattel WWE WrestleMania XXX Series!
The Rock has been ‘Just Bringing It’ to WrestleMania since the Attitude Era with a unique brand of no nonsense ass kicking and big mouthed boasting. His final appearance was at WrestleMania 29 after suffering a loss from John Cena but it would be a surprise to none for him to return and swing up, taking him back to The Great One status.
Brock Lesnar in Mattel WWE WrestleMania XXX Series!
The ‘Next Big Thing’ Brock Lesnar is a Beast by nature and one of the baddest men on the planet. His size, strength and agility are unparalleled and his iconic name and look make him a force to be reckoned with. He hasn’t had much success at WrestleMania in recent years but he is so powerful and so unique that his name always comes up in the WrestleMania conversation. Look for Brock to make a big impact at ‘Mania this year.
