Glenn Jacobs is actually still Kane.

Lawler might not be too far out of the realm of possibilities. I'm not sure what sort of a contract he has with WWE, but he gets to do a lot of independant wrestling stuff...so, who knows?

That's always possible. I'm not sure what sort of contract they have.

Hebner, probably not, no...but I'd be willing to bet that Angle and RVD have retained rights considering their fame came way before TNA was ever dreamed up.

If she is then hopefully she gets out by next month, 'cuz she's still listed as appearing.

Another nice addition would be Kevin Von Erich, there are no cards of him anywhere that I am aware of.

Some info coming out of the summit in Vegas from Leaf.

Artist is someone who has done work for the WWF in past, late 80's early 90's. Any idea who it may be?
Less cartoon look to the pictures.
Over seas signers!!! So maybe some Japan legends.
Made mention of some guys signing who are pretty old.
Crazy names and tons of first time signers.

I liked the cartoon look, 80's wrestling in particular isn't that far off in some respects, plus it kept the guys looking young as you remember them, not old and washed up. But that would be nice to expand to overseas legends. The more different names the better. Don't want series 1 to be watered down. Any names in particular given?

Brian Gray Leaf 2013 industry summit video is on you tube. I've only had time to watch a little of it. He does talk about Originals wrestling early on. Maybe more later on, just haven't watched it all yet. Here is link...

Wonder who the really old old guys Leaf got or plans on getting. Would love it if Verne Gagne signed, but I wonder if he could even do it at his age and state of mind.

Dpeck might have some insight.

I hope they get Dynamite Kid to sign. I know he won't come into the US or even is allowed anymore. He could use the money after hearing about the latest documentary Highspots did with him.

Kevin Von Erich has a few cards: 1985 Von Erich WCCW board game (rare), 1986 Monte Gum, WCCW Big League card (unbelievably ultra rare).

As long as they use a new artist. Some of those drawings are pure #@#@#@#@ and the ONE THING that takes away from the first set.

Hoping for the Dynamite Kid...that would be effin' awesome.

Neat, maybe we'll get guys like Mad Dog Vachon, Verne Gagne, Dory Funk Jr., Baron Von Raschke, Hiroshi Hase, Tenryu, Antonio Inoki, or The Great Muta

Muta blowing green mist would be awesome with green ink variation. Big $$$

I would also like to see a nWo variation of just Hogan, Nash and Hall. No nWo B team, Wofpack or any other stupid variations when they made the group less elite.

How about this... Fighter Hayabusa, Starman, Kin Corn Karn, Giant Panther, The Amazon, King Slender, Great Puma - wait that is basically what you just described

If you don't consider Louie Spicolli NWO then you are just blowing smoke. What about the rival faction of the OWN?

I really enjoyed the cards this year and the artwork - it was all original and something we don't see much for an entire set. Actually having Hyatt and Richters in hand I like that artwork also.

New artist is confirmed by Leaf. Is someone who has worked for WWE in the past. Anyone have list of artist who did work in late 80's early 90's for them. Name should come out soon I would think.
