2018 Topps WWE Then Now Forever

I've seen the 2018 Topps WWE Then Now Forever described as a series 2 or update to the main set.  I don't know the majority of these wrestlers but again I'm a casual WWE observer at best.  Overall I like the designs of the base cards and the photos on them.  The WWE seems to lend itself to cards.  I do think more action shots would be beneficial here though if a wrestler is only getting one card I could see the designers wanting each card to showcase a body shot of each.    
  I didn't see any in the ring action shots which is something I do like.  Most show wrestlers as they enter the arena.
The WWE Legend I pulled was Curt Henning AKA Mr. Perfect.  Each pack comes with a Shawn Michaels tribute as well.  
Here's a few of the 25 Years of Raw cards.  I won't grab more of these but as always I enjoy picking them up WWE cards to see what Topps is doing with them on their cards as well as to bring back memories of when I followed the sport more.  

20 – Cards Total
7 – NXT
6 – 25 Years of Raw
4 – Raw
2 – SmackDown Live
1 – Shawn Michaels Tribute
1 – WWE Legends


  1. I recognize Mr. Perfect, Shawn Michaels, and Goldberg. In short... I'm completely out of touch when it comes to WWE... but that didn't stop me from buying a bunch of cheap blasters to open during the holidays.

    1. I'm with you. I'm definitely out of touch but sure find the WWE cards fun.

  2. I know nothing about wrestling (okay I know a couple names) so I'm now sure how NXT and WWE are related. Is NXT a minor league of WWE, or a rival?

    1. I do believe NXT is a developmental "league" for the WWE. There may be more to it but that is my understanding.
