That would be tough, since they just broke up.  Also, there were a bunch of tag teams that did a lot more in NXT and on the main roster, so unfortunately I don't see them getting made.

However, I'm sure some of the concepts we tossed around for them could appear as some Zack Ryder support down the line.

I was totally going to joke that the VHS3 Line-Up was gonna be, like

"The Hype Bros! Heavy Machinery! Street Profits! reDRagon!" but I didn't want to get anyone's hopes falsely up.

I have an addiction problem.  I have not finished building Arn, NoD, and Brood, nor have I rebuilt Sin Cara, The Steiners, or Legacy. Despite all of that, one of the things I am most looking forward to is more Raw Deal on Christmas.   Last year, I woke up at 3 AM to pee and excitedly grabbed my phone just to see if anything had appeared yet.

Not yet.  :)

But we do have some ideas for the 205 Live crowd.

Oh there's some good names in there, and having met Rich Swann a few times when I was going to PWG shows, I'm kind of biased toward getting him in Raw Deal... :P

But we have a plan, and the CWs will come down the road. There's a couple people who've been waiting longer to be introduced to Virtual, and we'll see them soon.

What he said.

But Joe & Nakamura?  Of course we'll be getting them in, though not in this holiday set.  Hint: NXT year seems very likely... :)

Hopefully we get a Edgeheads Team card as Curt Hawkins deserves to be in the GAME finally as we already have Zack Ryder after all. As far as recent maybe a BreeZango w/ Tyler Breeze and Fandango or Heck a Faction Card of The Balor Club w/ Finn, Aj, Karl, and Luke would be awesome. As far as Females IDK maybe Tamina or Alicia Fox as they've been there Forever.

Also, you're talking about teams of individuals who aren't even in the game yet.  I think you're predicting for 2019 at that rate, heh.

Meanwhile, here's your Hawkins rough draft.

Starting Hand Size: 0     Superstar Value: 0
Superstar Ability: You lose the game.
