WWE Unveils Mae Young Doll, News Figures of TJP & Sasha Banks
Thursday, September 14, 2017
As well all know by now, WWE aired a 32-woman tournament on the WWE Network recently entitled the Mae Young Classic. Kairi Sane defeated Shayna Baszler in the main event to win the tournament in Las Vegas this past Tuesday night. Before the event began though, Stephanie McMahon revealed a very special one-of-a-kind Mattel doll based on the iconic Mae Young herself. The doll is similar to that of the Barbie dolls and dolls based on today's women of WWE that Mattel also creates. The doll was created by a Mattel designer in just six-and-a-half-days. The doll was unveiled prominently before the finale, and photos of the doll are posted below.
On the subject of women's wrestling, another pioneer in the industry has been Raw Superstar Sasha Banks. Walgreens recently announced that they will be staring their very own line of Elite action figures from Mattel based on the Women's Revolution. The first figure to start off the series is "The Boss" herself. Sasha is wearing the same attire that she adorned when she won the title for the first time on Raw last year. She includes her signature shades, necklace, and the first ever Raw Women's Championship made for Mattel action figures. On the back of the specially-made Women's Revolution packaging is a photo of Becky Lynch. This indicates that her figure is next in the series, and it will likely include the Smackdown Women's Championship.
WWE's cruiserweight division is finally starting to receive some love from the folks over at Mattel. The first action figure from the division has been released exclusively at Toys R Us stores. The winner of the Cruisweight Classic tournament, and inaugural Cruisweight Champion, TJP has been recreated with the title and a medal from the tournament as well. He has accurate ring attire and also has a smirking headsculpt that looks spot-on. He can be found at Toys R Us as part of the WWE Network Spotlight series. Hopefully, more cruiserweights can receive their action figures soon. For now though, TJP is dabbing his way into your collection.
