Funko gets in ring with WWE for new wave of Pop! toys coming soon

The “cheap pop” is coming to Funko. 

In wrestling terms a “cheap pop” is something made famous by Mick Foley — a mention of the hometown crowd to get a cheap reaction during a moment with a microphone — but in this case he’s among the new wave of WWE Pop! toys.
