Mattel has gone Retro with their WWE figures and this year they introduced a brand new ring for this line. This ring is a new take on the classic Hasbro design, and is NOT a reissue contrary to some toy reviews out there. We’ve reviewed this ring earlier this year, and pays a great tribute to the classic one. If you had this set in the early 1990’s, you will recall how many hours of fun it was to recreate some epic matches in the golden age of wresting. Now, Mattel is offering many different era’s of wrestling done in the retro style, with both Legends and today’s stars. This playset can be used for them all, not to mention its also compatible with Hasbro’s WWE figures.
