Start hot and end Rowdy

I love Becky Lynch. Yeah, Alexa's nice (she would be number 2, Dakota Kai 3), Charlotte has her fans, Sasha and Bayley are alright too, and Ronda has the power going for her - but I love The Man.

Best base card in the set, and I know she wasn't special enough to be the first card (that honour went to Ronda), But I love the pose for the poise (and the look), the strength and the attitude - just a great total package.

Before I gush too much...yeah, there were some other base cards too...

As well as a couple inserts...

And we end with...

Not sure if I need a new scanner, or if the bronze threw it off a bit with that effect on Ronda (no - she doesn't have a skin issue I am aware of - may have to play with the scanner setting).

An awesome end, and very appropriate. Given the feud with Becky, Ronda fits being in the same pack. Also, being a bronze rookie card of Ronda (one Bronze Ronda every 200 packs), probably the best card of the box as far as general public would be concerned (I still prefer Becky's base myself).

9 packs, 63 cards, 192 points.

WWE seems to be very set in what you get in the boxes, likely due to the fairly minimal parallels and inserts (which is fine). Great for starting a base set build though, now just to convert working on it as such.

  1. Sweet Rousey! No clue who LeRae is, but she reminds me of a young Courtney Thorne-Smith (from Melrose Place).
