WWE and Topps today announced the release of WWE Slam, the first digital trading card featuring the sports entertainment giant’s characters.
Sadly, it doesn’t seem like you’ll be able to catch a wild Nature Boy at the bus stop a la a certain other app which folks seem to be enjoying these days, but it still sounds cool.
Here’s the press release from WWE:
