Forget the Royal Rumble speculation…the WWE Universe has already begun to ponder just what WOULD happen if Kenny Omega surprised everyone and joined the WWE by entering the 2019 Royal Rumble. Not only would it be the most unbelievable WWE debut since AJ Styles, but it would mean that a Kenny Omega wrestling figure is well on the way.
While there’s currently no guarantee that Kenny Omega has signed with the WWE, since the debut of rival company AEW, fans have wondered where the former Bullet Club leader will end up. He has not announced any sort of signing with AEW, so his entrance in the 2019 Royal Rumble is still a possibility.
If he were to sign with WWE, Omega would likely sport his all black, leather-style gear, complete with highlighted kick pads and wild hairstyle. This could translate perfectly into a Mattel WWE figure, perhaps with an even quicker turnaround time from the Mattel WWE Design Team due to the low deco level.
With his elaborate entrances and no-nonsense attitude over the years, it’s also possible that Omega does things his own way and shows up with a Bullet Club jacket, or at least something that references the notorious crew…especially since he could stand face to face in the ring with former Bullet Club members.
For anyone unfamiliar with Kenny Omega, he has not disappointed with entrance gear at some major wrestling events in the past. Above is a look from New Japan Pro Wrestling’s Wrestle Kingdom event that blew fans away. If Omega were to sport this gear again, he would look like very few other WWE Superstars and make a major statement. He would also be primed even further for perfect Mattel WWE Elite entrance gear. This also points to the possibility that Omega has new, incredible entrance gear that no one has seen yet, perfect for a shocking WWE debut. Only time will tell, but if Kenny Omega joins the WWE, his wrestling figures could be nothing short of spectacular!

The Mattel WWE Elite 33 Roman Reigns!
Roman Reigns has been on a massive tear since returning to the WWE from his injury. A powerhouse of size, strength and ability, fans are standing firmly behind him as he plows through the upper-level of the roster and continues to be a fighter against The Authority. His Mattel WWE Elite 33 figure has a perfect likeness and a removable vest, showing off his physique and a look similar to how he competes in a WWE ring now.
Mattel WWE Elite 30 Ryback!
A possible underdog that could make a massive splash at this year’s Royal Rumble, Ryback’s resurgence cannot be denied. In Mattel WWE Elite 30, a rougher, meaner Ryback reminds everyone of the ‘Ryback Rules’ with a removable vest. With a detailed singlet and his now famous finger gloves, Ryback could be the massive presence in the Rumble that shocks the world. His defiance towards The Authority coupled with his lone-wolf style tactics make him a solid, if not semi-forgotten, choice.
The Mattel WWE Elite 32 Daniel Bryan!
After surprising the WWE Universe with his plans to return and enter the 2015 Royal Rumble, Daniel Bryan shook up the locker room and catapulted himself back into the WWE World Heavyweight Championship scene. After defying the odds at WrestleMania XXX, Daniel Bryan proved he is one of the most powerfully motivated, top WWE Superstars of all time. In Mattel WWE Elite 32, the beard is here, the Yes! Movement lives on and fans have an almost exact version of Daniel Bryan as he’ll likely appear in the 2015 Royal Rumble. Shouting Yes! should be a no brainer for this one.

Sheamus, one of the most popular modern day Superstars, gives a new meaning to the term ‘Fightin’ Irish.’ Hailing from Ireland and having a skin tone and fiery red hair like no other he has impacted the WWE Universe since debuting in 2009 and continues to Brogue Kick his way through any oncoming opponents. After a lengthy injury, he returned to the WWE at the 2014 Royal Rumble, surprising excited fans and reminding them he is in the WWE to stay. Sheamus also has a plethora of Mattel WWE figures available, representing his massive Irish persona at different stages during his career.
Mattel WWE Elite 25 Sheamus!
Sheamus’ latest Mattel WWE Elite figure is in Elite Series 25, complete with Celtic chain, t-shirt and silver color scheme. His smiling face shows just how much he loves to be a WWE Superstar and his extra articulation in the Elite style helps any fan looking to administer Brogue Kicks or Celtic Crosses to their unsuspecting WWE wrestling figures. This is one of Sheamus’ best Elite offerings and cannot be matched in detail with regards to representing the Celtic Warrior.
Mattel WWE Pay Per View 11 Sheamus!
The figure that began the Sheamus craze, this was simultaneously released as one of Sheamus’ first Mattel WWE figures, identical to the only other release at a time when fans wanted Sheamus more than any other Superstar in Mattel WWE figure form. With a new head sculpt and skin tone matching that of the real thing, Sheamus may be easier to find in the current day and age but at one point his figure was a hot commodity, and this version of it is a perfect example of when fans couldn’t get enough.
Mattel WWE WrestleMania XXX Battle Packs Sheamus vs. Ultimate Warrior!
Mattel took it upon themselves to offer Fantasy Match Ups for WrestleMania XXX, and came up with the idea of Sheamus facing off with the Ultimate Warrior. Getting a colorful version of Mr. Warrior is one exciting aspect, but getting a smiling, red and black geared Sheamus is another. Completely ready to face off with one of his all time heroes, Sheamus would certainly give Ultimate Warrior a run for his money as the two brawny, popular Superstars faced off.
Mattel WWE Series 38 Sheamus!
The latest Mattel WWE Sheamus figure in Series 38 is in turn, possibly the most exciting as it has an accurate and on time depiction of how Sheamus looked at his Royal Rumble 2014 return. Wearing the gold and silver trunks, knee pads and wrist wraps, Sheamus is one of the lucky few to have a completely and fully accurate representation of himself upon re-appearing in the WWE. This was due to a timing coincidence by Mattel that fit perfectly with Sheamus’ unfortunate injury. If anything good were to be said about what came of Sheamus’ injury, it would be that his latest Mattel WWE figure is spot on in as many ways as possible.

The week after Royal Rumble 2014, speculation has run rampant on Twitter, Facebook and amongst the WWE Universe and beyond as to whether or not CM Punk is still with the WWE. Rumor has it that CM Punk, unhappy with his Royal Rumble loss and stature in the company, decided to leave the WWE early with a contract expiring in July and his absence from Monday Night RAW has further fueled this speculation. No one, including CM Punk himself, has made an official statement on the matter but rumors of fights with Vince McMahon, tension with Triple H and more have made people immensely curious about what is going on with the wrestling superstar they consider The Best In The World. Wrestling figure fans have already begun to speculate as to what this means for Mattel WWE CM Punk action figures and their future releases. Could Mattel WWE CM Punk figures be a thing of the past? Here are a few of the best Mattel WWE CM Punk figures so far:
Mattel WWE Straight Edge Society CM Punk Exclusive!
The Ringside Collectibles Exclusive Mattel WWE Straight Edge Society CM Punk featured camouflage Straight Edge Society garb for the Straight Edge Superstar. Complete with a removable mask and an extremely detailed bald headsculpt, this CM Punk was hugely sought after by Mattel WWE figure fans, sold quickly and remains a hot item to this day. Celebrating Punk’s time in the Straight Edge Society, it captured the essence of his purely evil turn and cult-like feuds with Rey Mysterio and Big Show.
Mattel WWE Elite 1 CM Punk!
The Mattel WWE Elite 1 CM Punk, his first released Mattel WWE Elite during the launch of the Mattel WWE line, featured CM Punk’s post-Money In the Bank win look, confidence and edge. The grey and yellow outfit featured in this figure, unlike so many other CM Punk outfits, has yet to be replicated and remains unique and unchanged. Also included, now a thing of the past in the Mattel WWE figure line, was a cotton-style cloth t-shirt.
Mattel WWE Elite 11 CM Punk!
After a forceful takeover of The Nexus from Wade Barrett, CM Punk put his leadership skills to good use and ran the group into the ground while using it as a springboard for his own success. Fans are often reminded of CM Punk’s time in the Royal Rumble surrounded by Nexus members and his infamous “Pipe Bomb” speech that took place during his time as Nexus leader. The Mattel WWE Elite 11 figure captured both his time in the group and his transition to mega superstar, complete with Nexus armband and Nesus t-shirt, both removable so wrestling figure fans could easily have their CM Punk abandon the group if he needed to.
Mattel WWE Elite 20 CM Punk!
The Mattel WWE Elite 20 CM Punk was monumental for Mattel WWE wrestling figure fans as it included a new, slick-haired headsculpt and accurate, colorful tattoos that were finally realized as intended. This figure also included the Mattel WWE Spinner championship, commemorating CM Punk’s monumental WWE Championship reign that lasted over a year and ended at the hands of The Rock.
Mattel WWE Battle Packs 25 CM Punk vs. The Undertaker!
What could possibly be CM Punk’s last great feud in the WWE, he faced off with Undertaker at WrestleMania 29, angrily trying to end what he considered to be a self indulgent and silly WrestleMania streak carried by the Undertaker. Going so far as to make jokes with the urn of the Undertaker’s late father Paul Bearer, CM Punk reached into the mind of Undertaker to pull out a loss. He didn’t find it, but his memorable elbow drop on to Undertaker and his ongoing grouchy demeanor made the face off extremely memorable.
Mattel WWE Ringside Collectibles ECW CM Punk Exclusive!
The latest planned Mattel WWE ECW CM Punk Ringside Collectibles Exclusive figure was revealed by Mattel and Ringside Collectibles at Ringside Fest 2013. A happier, smiling CM Punk included red trunks and boots, a microphone, heart t-shirt and ECW Championship from a time when the new Superstar was doing his best to make a name for himself in the WWE. Many die-hard wrestling fans had already taken to CM Punk, but he slowly but surely made his way atop the WWE ladder, and it began while in ECW. The fate of this Mattel WWE Ringside Collectibles Exclusive ECW CM Punk figure is currently unknown, but upon its release, it will be a fitting tribute as the start of a career in the WWE that many have not wanted to see end.

CM Punk has had a string of misfortune since returning to the WWE after a loss to The Undertaker at last year’s WWE WrestleMania. He has had run ins with The Shield, The Wyatt Family, and even his boss, Triple H, all trying to suppress his free speaking mind and cause him great harm in the WWE. To add insult to months of injury, Kane, now corporate and no longer any fun, has decided CM Punk would be the perfect first entrant in the Royal Rumble 2014. Punk, weary and war torn, will have his work cut out for him if he wishes to main event WrestleMania.
Mattel WWE Battle Packs 25 CM Punk vs. Undertaker!
CM Punk’s hard hearted, grouchy demeanor came to a head at WrestleMania 29 when he faced off with Undertaker. Claiming he could beat the streak, Punk faced off with The Dead Man and attempted to take away his WrestleMania glory. Immortalized in Mattel WWE Battle Packs 25, CM Punk has black boots, knee pads, trunks with white stars, and a dark and angry, clenched teeth mouth, reminiscent of a Ninja Turtle. The Battle Pack also included an Undertaker figure and an urn accessory, based on the urn CM Punk took from Undertaker that represented his late father, Paul Bearer.
Mattel WWE Slam City CM Punk & The Miz!
CM Punk’s lighter side might be found in the new Mattel WWE Slam City figures. This two pack, including CM Punk, The Miz and a breakable table, has two Slam City style versions of Punk and Miz, both with stretchable, launchable arms. These new figures have fun, wild features to make play more heavily based around tossing your figures around. Perfect for CM Punk trying to cheer himself up after a loss to the Undertaker.
Mattel WWE Super Strikers CM Punk!
With new and improved features, the Mattel WWE Super Strikers feature signature moves related to their Superstars. This CM Punk figure has the perfected ability to administer a Go to Sleep, or GTS! Placing another figure on its shoulders, wrestling figure fans can administer some knees to faces and finish the match. Taking it a step further, this CM Punk figure brings entirely new meaning to the term ‘paper champion’ with the inclusion of a cardboard World Heavyweight Championship.
Mattel WWE Series 36 CM Punk!
The latest Mattel WWE CM Punk, and hopefully his final grouchy and grumpy appearance in the line, finds the Straight Edge Superstar in Mattel WWE Series 36. With black boots, black knee pads and black trunks with orange stars and stripes, this CM Punk figure still has the angry face and still wants to end Undertaker’s streak. Mattel WWE wrestling figure fans can use this CM Punk to take the steps towards enlightenment, moving on to rage against the machine and the authority instead of worrying about supernatural beings he cannot defeat.
It isn’t impossible for CM Punk to last through the entire 2014 Royal Rumble and win to go on to WrestleMania and face the WWE World Heavyweight Champion in the main event, but his work is cut out for him!

Dave Batista showed up on WWE Monday Night RAW, returning to the WWE and ready to challenge for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. The Animal was ring ready, putting his attacking skills to work on Alberto Del Rio, delivering the first Batista-Bomb in a WWE ring in nearly 4 years! He also confronted Randy Orton and told him his sights were set on the Viper directly.
Batista Returns to the WWE in 2014 on RAW!
After making his grand return, the WWE Universe went wild and with no surprise, Batista’s current Mattel WWE offerings became even more popular.
Batista is in Mattel WWE Series 37!
First up, a classic style Batista in Mattel WWE Series 37. This figure lacks his current tattoos, making him more accurate to the WrestleMania timeframe he is portraying. With an itty bitty chin hair for intimidation factor and strapped boots, this is the best old school offering for the Animal.
Batista from the Mattel WWE WrestleMania XXX Battle Packs!
Included in a Mattel WWE Battle Pack celebrating WrestleMania XXX, this Batista figure is a modern day version of The Animal. It has silver and black boots and all of his current, updated tattoos based on the last time he was scanned by Mattel. His beard is a bit different than how he appeared on RAW, but it’s very close to how he looked before returning. The Battle Pack also included The Beast Brock Lesnar, pitting The Animal and The Beast against each other for the first time.
Batista is the easy favorite to win the 2014 Royal Rumble, but he has his work cut out for him as 29 other entrants will no doubt want to main event WrestleMania as well. Good luck, Animal! Walk alone…like you always have.

Roman Reigns has been the standout, powerhouse member of The Shield for the past few months and he continues to break away from his fellow Shield members as they often run into conflict with each other. They remain a unit as of the posting of this blog, but many WWE wrestling fans speculate that at Royal Rumble 2014, Roman Reigns will have a huge turn in the ring and have to choose between his singles career and his membership in The Shield. Only time will tell if Reigns will go on the offensive, but his sheer size, strength and ability have caused discussion in the wake of the 2014 Royal Rumble.

Mattel WWE Battle Packs 24 Roman Reigns & Seth Rollins!

Mattel WWE Series 37 Roman Reigns!
Reign’s latest Mattel WWE figure comes in Series 37 with a shouting, open mouthed head sculpt that showcases just how wildly powerful he can get when he is in the ring. With a different style of molded vest, this represents Reign’s first appearance at WrestleMania and embodies his intensity.
Despite his newness, Roman Reigns is an easy dark-horse favorite to make a massive attack at the 2014 Royal Rumble and the question isn’t so much his ability, but whether or not that ability will tear apart his team.

The wrestling rumor mill is always busy this time a year as the WWE Royal Rumble is only about a month from Christmas and it’s always filled with ideas and thoughts as to who would surprise the WWE Universe and show up for a shot at the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Recently, ‘The Animal’ Batista has been rumored to be making a return to the WWE after an almost 4 year absence. Here are two of his most popular Mattel WWE figures and another which could hint towards his return:
Mattel WWE Series 1 Batista!
Batista was a big part of the Mattel WWE Series launch, as seen here in his Series 1 wrestling action figure. With tattoos accurate to the time and some bright, classy red trunks, Batista was showcased as one of the star members of the WWE roster.
Mattel WWE Elite 6 Batista!
In Elite 6, Batista came back with a bad attitude and more tattoos. Wearing too-cool-for-school sunglasses, Batista’s final Elite figure before leaving the WWE was rude, crude, and exclaimed that basketballs don’t hold grudges. This has been Batista’s most sought after Mattel WWE action figure.
Mattel WWE WrestleMania XXX Batista vs. Brock Lesnar!
To commemorate WrestleMania XXX, Mattel released this Batista vs. Brock Lesnar ‘Fantasy Matchup’ Battle Pack showcasing a possible fight between The Animal and The Beast. Though Brock sports a classic look, Batista appears as though he never left and is ready to step back into the ring. The timing may be coincidental, but it seems as though Batista’s return to the WWE is imminent!

The Undertaker has been missing since a vicious Smackdown! attack at the hands of The Shield. The Deadman has, as expected, slowed down and not made as many appearances, but his name is always mentioned around big Pay Per Views like Survivor Series, Royal Rumble and WrestleMania.
