What’s Buzz-worthy: A big weekend for WWE means one more break of this new release — and we may not be done yet today with possible new Ronda Rousey cardboard. … As said in our previous break, the first WWE release of the year recaps the last year or so with dated highlight cards making up the set just as the Road to WrestleMania begins on TV and with the Royal Rumble. This set is very similar to last year’s with the highlights but there aren’t really any women’s wrestling highlights here, meaning they’re holding onto those for another women’s-focused set this year. (Could that be where a Rousey card debut happens?) About the only drawback here is skinny stock that could chip easily. On-card autos are a big plus here, too, with everything numbered except for the standard ink. This one should make for a strong and affordable start for the WWE year as there will be a lot of hobby boxes with two autos for a not-so-expensive price.
