The “Biggest, Baddest Card Ever” is how tonight’s UFC 200 is billed and it’s had its fair share of drama when it comes to the card itself.
And there’s plenty of cardboard to be found for it, too, with Topps on site for the UFC Expo with promo cards (though not as many as it had planned due to the Jon Jones-forced card change) and it will have even more cardboard with the launch of Topps Now UFC with this event.
But the one player on the card tonight in Las Vegas who doesn’t have any new cards — but should figure into the show prominently win or lose — is current WWE fighter Brock Lesnar, who is making a one-time (or is it?) return to the Octagon with his organization’s approval (or is it the sign of something more?) for the fight. (Update: Lesnar has been added to the Topps Now debut checklist after his win.)
He’s got plenty of cardboard.
World Wrestling Entertainment has been known for some controversial moments in television history that included intense matches, risqué segments, countless “Stone Cold” Steve Austin middle fingers, exploding limos, Katie Vick and plenty more.
But this? This is just ugly.
WWE launched a line of ugly sweater-inspired sweatshirts on Friday, giving those gatherings a new twist on the trend of hideous holiday attire — a twist with some muscle and some attitude.
Topps released the final checklist for the first high-end WWE card set ever on Monday morning and 2015 Topps WWE Undisputed is a heavyweight with a lineup of Fistographs, cut autographs, auto booklets and a mix of past and present WWE greats.
Among the signers? Brock Lesnar, “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels, Bret “Hit Man” Hart, Bruno Sammartino, Bray Wyatt, The Iron Sheik, Edge, John Cena, Lita, Trish Stratus, “The Million-Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase, Paul Heyman, Kevin Owens, Finn Balor, Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks.
Oh, and also signing for the autograph-in-every-pack line? Pete Rose and Lawrence Taylor, who have appeared at past WrestleManias.
