I'm all for showing love to forgotten superstars like The Oddities but man...they weren't around longer than 9 months and were awful in the ring.
I'm the wind, baby.

I think that's all but 2 now, yeah?

My guess for the last 2? Either Corbin, Curtis, Adam, or Revival. Don’t know when they will be spoiled but that’s my guess.

I've been out of the loop for a while, but what's the stance on Cass and Enzo after the events leading up to Enzo's release?

It’s covered in page 4/5 of this thread.

And to add, it's a "'No' means 'No'" stance, so please - let's not try to hijack the thread any further with it, thank you.

Thus the moving onto guessing about the last two names not yet revealed... heh

Fair enough.
Back on track, Carmella sounds posible, specially considering she got support last set. Also, taking in consideration that old superstars that are not active today, like The Vaudevillains, are on the set, my money is (still) on Adam Rose coming out eventually.

Adam Rose's set should come out in some fashion, though it might be for another Superstar.   We have some ideas... :)

Enzo & Cass's set would be a bit more challenging, since it was specifically designed for two very different teammates.  Most members of a team are somewhat similar (Revival, Good Brothers, AOP, Undisputed Era) so it would be tough to match it up, but we'll keep a look out. Hate to see good ideas go to waste.

Corbin has been around for a while now so would be nice to see him. And really pulling for Samoa Joe.

Has there been any mention of when the set might be released? Around Summerslam maybe?

It’s been mentioned that well know the set by Gencon. Released sometime after that.

I know it's kinda unlikely, but will we be getting some Fashion Police love in Raw Deal?

Is some support for older guys (espacially from the last set) planned? I think the Brood and Val have some potential for more cards. ;-)
Beware, take care. Because the freaks come out at night!!!

Based on previous sets, what do you think the answer is?  ;)

Or to phrase it a little more clear: This is a typical 'large set' release :)

Right.  Holiday sets are essentially 'just Superstars' (with a small amount of specifically themed support on occasion), whereas the numbered sets contain some non-Specific cards, support, etc.

Sounds good. I hoped to get a little hint on what the Brood will get. ;-)

Sorry, detailing support which we may or may not have together at this time would be too extensive.

I just realised the list doesn't contain any remakes. Are any of the two un-revealed superstars remakes by any chance?

According to Creed no remakes from here on out. As stated after the last set. Lol. Looking forward to last 2.

Well, not *ever* ever, but not any time soon.

If we make an exception, we'll let you know, and it won't take the place of new talent that warrants addition to the game.
