Since the dismantling of The Shield by The Authority in their recruitment of Seth Rollins, fans have struggled to accept the fact that the ‘Hounds of Justice’ are no longer running together as a pack. Seth Rollins is living out his life of selling his soul to the devil and seemingly struggling on their own, Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns have seldom been seen together.
Tag Team and team-up and rivalry fans, rejoice! The Mattel WWE Battle Packs 35 and Mattel WWE Battle Packs 36 line-ups have finally been announced.
The Mattel WWE Battle Packs 35 includes:
Curtis Axel & Ryback
Jack Swagger & Zeb Colter
Kane & Roman Reigns
Finding a common ground in talent and aggression, Curtis Axel and Ryback came together to create Rybaxel. Providing a unique blend of muscle and wrestling ability, they created a bit of an unmatched tag team with wins, but more conflict than success. Ryback always makes sure to bring colorful, airbrushed outfits forward. Curtis Axel has recently proven that ‘Axelmania’ is runnin’ wild, but that is highly unlikely to appear as an attire for this figure based on how recently it happened. Only time will tell.
Kane has been doing Triple H’s corporate bidding since his rise to authoritative power. This means stopping Roman Reigns from being the ‘next big thing,’ so it’s no surprise the two massive forces would collide. Kane has both worn his mask and wrestled without it as of late, so it’s possible he could be ‘corporate’ or a fiery, unleashed version of himself. Roman Reigns wrestles with the power of a super human, so the more figures that fans can get their hands on of him, the better. It’s important to have access to your hero.
Jack Swagger and his uncle Zeb Colter represent a down, dirty and extremely proud sense of what it means to be Americans, whether the people around them like it or not. Together, they make sure that upon their arrival, fans shout ‘WE THE PEOPLE!’ Since this is the first time Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter will appear together, it will likely provide an updated look for both the collegiate wrestling WWE Superstar and his grizzled veteran of an uncle.
The Mattel WWE Battle Packs 36 includes:
New Day (Big E & Kofi Kingston)
Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose
The Outsiders (Scott Hall & Kevin Nash)
Since grooving and singing together on WWE television and praising about the coming of a ‘New Day,’ Big E and Kofi Kingston are brighter and bluer than ever! It’s extremely likely that the Mattel WWE Battle Packs 36 Kofi Kingston and Big E will be dressed in ‘New Day’ attire, possibly including vests and dusters, so fans can build depth for their tag team division.
Dean Ambrose took Seth Rollins’ betrayal of The Shield extremely personally. He’s now a loose cannon and will likely never be the same, with a newfound aggression that he loves to take out on the likes of villainous Superstars like Rollins himself. Though they have been running on separate paths since the breakup of The Shield took place, they will likely one day meet again with explosive results. Fans get that now with the Mattel WWE Battle Packs 36, which should included updated, non-Shield looks for both Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins.
The Outsiders are one of the most legendary villainous tag teams of all time. Scott Hall and Kevin Nash invaded WCW and changed the wrestling world forever as founding members of the nWo. They wore colorful outfits along the way, but there is speculation that their most recent WrestleMania appearance could bring new, updated versions of The Outsiders to the Mattel WWE toy line. If not, it’s likely that Scott Hall will have his iconic red and black vest and gear, and ‘Big Sexy’ Kevin Nash will be sporting a red or black ‘Outsiders’ style getup.
