In celebration of the 1,000th episode of WWE Monday Night RAW later this evening I bring 3 packs of Topps WWE cards I recently found in the discount box at my local Target.
This is the first pack I've opened of 2006 Heritage II...and I love it. I'm not all that fond of the 1963 baseball design, but I like it when it features wrestlers. Who knew?!
#36 Goldust - Son of WWE Hall of Famer the "American Dream" Dusty Rhodes, Dustin Runnels doesn't appear on television much anymore. Talk about a flamboyant wrestling persona. I never cared for the character, but I did like watching Dustin. He had big shoes to fill and never quite lived up to his dad's legacy.
#43 Super Crazy - I remember this Mexican luchador more from his WCW days than I do his WWE tenure. High flying wrestler who was fun to watch. I liked the fact that he was small like Rey Mysterio or Sin Cara and actually had some heft. Made his acrobatics that much more awesome.
#22 Kid Kash - Who? Before the Monday Night wars got heated I watched more WCW. I have heard this name, but don't know anything about him. I believe he is currently signed with TNA.
#07 Edge - Magnet insert - How come Topps never used die-cut magnets in their baseball products?! I love these! I miss watching Edge in the ring too as he was a great performer who had to retire far too early.
#75 Bushwackers - Perhaps this is my favorite card of the pack. I loved this goofy, yet scrappy pair of guys.
