For years, fans have been speculating about whether or not Kurt Angle would ever return to the WWE. Finally, it looks as though the American Hero will make his return to the company with an induction into the WWE Hall of Fame. Because of this, it’s very likely that a Kurt Angle Mattel WWE figure will be close behind. Wrestling figure fans will now speculate as to what Angle’s debut figure will be, with loads of different looks available.
The Ultimate Warrior will (in the eyes of many) finally be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame at WrestleMania XXX. His wild and intense demeanor and colorful attires have always been easy on the eyes of wrestling fans both young and old. His presence in the world of wrestling and influence are undeniable and now that he will forever be a WWE fixture, more Mattel WWE wrestling action figures based on the Warrior are bound to be produced. Here are a few speculative possibilities:
Ultimate Warrior teamed with his one-time nemesis ‘Macho Man’ Randy Savage to form the Ultimate Maniacs. When the two powerhouses got together, they became an unstoppable tag team and faced off with many WWE staples at the time of their friendship. Ultimate Warrior sported a bright red and yellow color scheme with detailed logos and even sunglasses to match Randy Savage. With a brick-like design and arm tassels, this is a previously unmanufactured Warrior that would get wrestling figure fans talking.
The Ultimate Warrior, of course, made his biggest impact on the world of wrestling all by himself. This look captures Ultimate Warrior at the height of his solo career, complete with amazing airbrushing techniques on his trunks and pastel colors that separate him from any and every other wrestling superstar. Such a figure could be considered a definitive look, reminding fans of Warrior at any point during his solo career.
Though panned by many fans, Halloween Havoc ’98 remains memorable as a staple of Ultimate Warrior’s short lived WCW run and a showcase of one of his most incredibly detailed outfits to date. The Halloween Havoc look has been a sought after figure for many wrestling figure fans of Ultimate Warrior due to its incredible detail and dark, colorful look. Though the match may not be remembered through wrestling history, the outfit always will.
With his Hall of Fame induction, it wouldn’t be a disappointing surprise for the Ultimate Warrior, who is in great shape, to step into the WWE ring, either at the 2014 Royal Rumble or at WrestleMania XXX! If this were the case, a Mattel WWE figure based on his modern look would be a must have. It would be perfect for fans old and new to bring Ultimate Warrior’s presence into their current wrestling figure roster, to play with as a veteran competitor or even an authority figure! Warrior’s potential for wrestling figures can not be denied and Mattel will certainly not disappoint.

The Ultimate Warrior made a surprise appearance to promote his inclusion in the WWE2K14 video game, sparking rumors of the end of a long time feud with Vince McMahon and a return, in some capacity to the WWE. Warrior hopefuls have enjoyed his appearance in the game and a multitude of Mattel WWE action figures in his likeness, but some are holding out for a surprise Royal Rumble entrance or even a WWE Hall of Fame induction.
Ultimate Warrior has had excellent Mattel WWE treatments so far, but here are his most recently featured items, both showcasing colorful outfits:
In Mattel WWE Elite 26, Ultimate Warrior is sporting a singlet designed to look like muscle tissue and some intense yellow, pink and green tassels. This outfit is based directly on his appearance at Summerslam 1992, facing off with ‘Macho Man’ Randy Savage.
Ultimate Warrior is paired with a modern day brawler much like himself in Sheamus to commemorate the upcoming celebration of WrestleMania XXX! With a color scheme of orange and yellow, black boots and Warrior symbols abound, this Warrior figure is a no nonsense Basic.
