I am fairly sure there will be a holiday set, but I would much rather get an AJ Styles, in there. If there is a holiday set I would expect something officially said soon.

You won't get a direct answer, yes or no...but creed has dropped many hints that there is one and has specifically said the next few releases will focus on the new faces in the wwe. So your wish for an AJ Styles may come true this holiday season,  especially since he officially has a card in raw.deal courtesy of Virtual 8

I’d expect to see superstars whose logos were revealed in V8. That said, I’m not expecting a big set, as V8 has barely been out a month and I haven’t played with everything I want from that set yet!

There is only one person in VHS3 who is not currently employed by the WWE in some fashion, but it ain't Emma ;)

If it was newer talent...the only that comes to mind for me is Austin Aries, but I haven't been following enough recently to know all their releases

We've been designing around a one-year minimum, people who've been around long enough to show they won't get released and leave us with nothing to build future support around.

So people like Ellsworth are too short-lived to bother with.  Alexa's a bit too new, as odd as that seems, for this particular holiday set.... but rest assured you'll be seeing her next year.

I'll have to slip the podcast guys a leak or two soon... :)

I assumed Ellsworth would get nothing more than a manager card or something for Carmella. But I get the rationale, no point in wasting time on cards that will get no support in the future due to their short lived time at wwe

Hoping for Enzo (& Cass). With that, all the guys I ever wanted to see in Raw Deal will be released.
Beware, take care. Because the freaks come out at night!!!

My guess is Bayley, AJ, and Nattie. They all have logos and Nattie already has a bunch of card support. Also world champs like Balor and Mahal seem too important to miss.

Man, I love that -my- reaction to that was 'Wait, AJ Styles has a logo on a card?'

I didn't think Creed was goin to comment lol but atleast that seems to confirm Finn and Braun. I have a feeling that this will be the best holiday set so far.

At this moment I'm not confirming or denying anything, other than a few months back, we had the lineup for VHS3 and nothing recent (like Ellsworth) would change that.

I will say that 2018 will bring a lot more Superstars coming up from NXT, but it's way too soon to talk about any of that yet.

Speculating here... but there has been sort of a pattern so far...

VHS1: NXT female stars like Sasha, Charlotte

VHS2: NXT male stars like KO, Rusev (well, he did get a start at NXT after all, I think!)

VHS3: NXT tag teams (no stables like New Day) so I'm guessing Enzo & Cass, maybe Ascension, Lucha Dragons?

Woah, this gets me even more hyped! I'm guessing it's Enzo/Cass or Ascension, then likely Bayley and Neville? :D
