SDCC’20: Mattel reveals Elite Matt Riddle, Elite 78, 79

Ahead of the big panel tomorrow where we’ll see a bunch of new product, Mattel showed some figures that debuted SDCC’19 in final form. Most of the wave is updates to mainstays like Daniel Bryan, The New Day and Roman Reigns.

One thing that stood out in Elite 78 and 79, it’s that WWE might never have had a deeper roster of black stars and this doesn’t even include NXT champ Keith Lee. Mattel had no idea the state of the world when these waves get released, but it’s a pretty cool thing seeing all of this talent in figure form.
