Check out the upcoming WWE Elite lineups for waves 81-85

Thanks to some internet sleuths and retailer release info, we’ve got the new few waves of WWE Elite lineups. With the return of the Legends line there’s a noticeable lack of the Flashbacks in every wave format although they are still part of the main Elite line.

Here’s the breakdown:

Elite 81

  • Stunning Steve Austin
  • Bianca Belair
  • Angelo Dawkins
  • Montez Ford
  • Shinsuke Nakamura
  • The Rock
  • Mae Young

We get the Hollywood Blonde Austin, which is a welcome addition to the early 90s WCW ranks. There’s some question about which version of The Rock we’ll see although with the Attitude Era version coming in the Ultimate Edition line, a relatively more modern figure is likely. It’ll be nice to get The Street Profits along with Belair in one wave.

Elite 82

wwe british bulldogs

  • Finn Balor
  • Alexa Bliss
  • Rob Gronkowski
  • Jerry The King Lawler
  • Keith Lee
  • John Morrison
  • Davey Boy Smith

We get the British Bulldogs version of Davey Boy along with the New Generation version of Lawler that’s been long overdue. I’m definitely down for Lee, but this wave starts the shift in my roster priorities.

Elite 83

wwe sasha banks

  • Sasha Banks
  • Baron Corbin
  • Edge (modern)
  • Michael Hayes
  • Drew McIntyre
  • Dusty Rhodes
  • The Velveteen Dream

I’m curious what look Mattel will go for with this Rhodes figure. Maybe his mid-80s curly hair look? Hayes is another intriguing option. With the only look I wouldn’t be interested in is his Hardy Boyz manager look.

Elite 84

wwe zelina vega

  • Angel Garza
  • Jeff Hardy
  • Kushida
  • Sheamus
  • Rhea Ripley
  • Bray Wyatt
  • Zelina Vega

With the Elite 71 and an upcoming Ultimate Edition Hardy figure coming, I’m less interested in anything that’s not a Attitude Era version now. Kushida is a definite, but the wack treatment of NXT stars on the main roster has me less interested in grabbing Garza.

Elite 85

wwe liv morgan

  • Aleister Black
  • Santos Escobar
  • Karrion Kross
  • Liv Morgan
  • Roman Reigns
  • Bray Wyatt

I like Kross and Escobar and they’re probably gonna be the figures of this wave I get, but I’m worried they’re gonna be the limited figures in the wave that’s impossible to find like a Roderick Strong.

What do you think of the lineups?
