Ringside Fest 2015 was a huge success! Fans were treated to meetings with their favorite WWE Superstars, including WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins, Lana, Paige, Intercontinental Champion Kevin Owens and Dolph Ziggler! While waiting patiently to meet them, they were able to have a look at some new, upcoming Mattel WWE wrestling action figures, including the newly announced upcoming nWo Wolfpac Kevin Nash Exclusive! Also on the way were the first Kevin Owens, Sasha Banks and Bailey Mattel WWE figures. They were peppered into a lineup of returning favorites, like Sheamus with his new and improved look, a Flashback style Chris Jericho, Paul Bearer, Undertaker and even new looks for Lana and Wade Barrett.
The late, great Mr. Perfect was known the world around for his perfect demeanor, perfect attitude and perfect executions of athleticism. Wowing fans with incredible skill, tossing a towel from one hand to the other was sometimes all it would take for Curt Hennig to show his greatness. The word ‘Perfect’ in the wrestling world will always be synonymous with Hennig and rightfully so. His son, Curtis Axel, aims to follow in his father’s footsteps, hoping to match some of his dad’s perfect achievements both genetically and socially. Both men are receiving Mattel WWE figures just in time for fans to decide for themselves whether or not Curtis Axel can truly walk along side his dad in a wrestling ring.
Mattel WWE Mr. Perfect Curt Hennig!
Finally making his way into a Mattel WWE series for just the second time, Mr. Perfect sports a yellow and black singlet with white boots and a ‘perfect’ headsculpt. It looks just like him, but it’s up to fans playing with this wrestling figure to perfectly re-enact Mr. Perfect’s Perfectplex. This figure is part of the WrestleMania Heritage Series, so it commemorates Mr. Perfect’s participation in the biggest event of the year.
Mattel WWE Battle Packs 26 Curtis Axel!
Curtis Axel’s only Mattel WWE appearance up to this point had been under the guise of ‘Michael McGillicutty,’ forgotten ex-Nexus member who left WWE with a whimper. Now, in Mattel WWE Battle Packs 26 (included with his boss, Triple H) Curtis Axel tears his way back into the WWE scene. With an adjusted hairline, more accurate body mold and tights reflecting his new name, Curtis Axel is ready to capture the Intercontinental Championship like his father before him and make a unique name for himself.
So who wins out, Mr. Perfect or Curtis Axel? If father and son stepped into the ring together, sparks would no doubt fly but the only way fans can truly know which performer would defeat the other is to re-enact what would no doubt be a classic match themselves with these Mattel WWE wrestling figures.

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.

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.
