2013 was a year of tag team, match ups and managerial resurgence in the WWE. The WWE Universe has been treated to debuts of teams like Los Matadores, the strengthening of The Shield and the facing off of old rivals like John Cena and Randy Orton. It takes two to tango, as they say! Here are four of the years BEST Mattel WWE Battle Packs:
Darren Young and Titus O’Neil had a breakout year in the WWE, racking up tag team wins and proving they have what it takes to roll with the big boys! This set presented a new, updated look for D. Young and a debut figure for Titus O’Neil! Throw in a classic stop sign accessory and you’ve got yourself…Millions of Dollars!
Roman Reigns & Seth Rollins cemented The Shield’s position in the WWE Tag Team game, capturing the titles and proving to be unstoppable. Fans were discussing Shield action figures from the moment they debuted, and it was no surprise when Mattel delivered, and did they ever deliver on the debut figures of Rollins and Reigns. Including a folding chair to add to your collection, these two were a force to be reckoned with in 2013.
Everyone remembers CM Punk holding the WWE Championship hostage in 2012 during the “Summer of Punk,” but plenty forget when he and the boss, Mr. McMahon, actually took to facing off in the ring! Mattel commemorated that in Battle Packs 23, giving both Vince McMahon and CM Punk (complete with a new facial hair style) kendo sticks to even the odds…or maybe just to sword fight with!
Arguably the definitive ‘Paul Heyman Guy,’ Brock Lesnar holds as much respect for the ECW founder as Heyman does for Brock. With Heyman around, Brock doesn’t have to say much (other than requesting Paul say something stupid once in a while) with his best friend around to speak for him. A match made in heaven as two of the most notorious figures in wrestling history team up and Paul Heyman debuts in the Mattel WWE line.
Whether you are looking for a match up to settle a grudge, a superstar and his trusty manager or a hot tag team, Mattel WWE Battle Packs always deliver the goods.
