  • Surprised we don’t have to unlock the cover art for $5.99….
  • who is really going to pre order when they had a pure dumpster fire the last release?
  • I absolute love nwo but the company that makes these makes my skin crawl
  • This will probably be on sale for $20 Std/$30 Deluxe/$40 nWo in August for SummerSlam. Like it's been previous years with the November release date, then on sale in April for WrestleMania.
