I was able to find a blaster and decided to add a Fat Pack because it promised a Randy Savage Tribute card. Let's take a look at the Fat Pack first.
Here are a few from the roster set. Backgrounds come in one of those three colors and don't seem to have any rhyme or reason behind which superstar gets which color. The bottom row are three of my favorite current stars.
Here are other high points from throughout the past year. Though I didn't get to watch any of the CWC, I did have high hopes for the return of the division. Here we are over a year after the crowning of its inaugural champion and the division seems to be without direction, excitement, and most recently(due to the release of reigning champ, Enzo Amore) without a champion. I hope WWE can turn things around for the cruiserweights. The KO/Jericho friendship and subsequent feed was definitely one of the most entertaining storylines of the last year. I love anything pertaining to Alexa Bliss. What she lacks in ring skills, she makes up for on the mic by playing the perfect manipulative/conniving heel.
The blaster contained two of the Andre the Giant Tribute cards. I was happy to pull them, but if I'm looking at design, this set pales in comparison to the Savage set. I'll have to build it nonetheless, because Andre is one of my favorites to watch when I first got into wrestling. I really like the manu-relic with the faux Andre the Giant Battle Royal trophy, but pulling Tyler Breeze really made the blaster fall a bit flat. I'm not a fan of the Fashion Files and I probably would have been happier with almost anyone else I could have pulled from the set. Also making an appearance in the blaster/fat pack were bronze parallels of the highlight set. I chose not to scan any of those because I wasn't overly impressed with the moments I pulled parallels for.
This was a fun break of a product I was actively searching for all week and served as a great appetizer, leaving me Rumbling for the Royal main course tonight! Anyone else looking forward to the PPV? Thoughts on who wins the Rumble or the first ever Women's Rumble? Hoping for any particular 'surprise entrants' to make an appearance? Thanks for reading.
