We take a closer look at the WWE Hall of Champions Battle Pack series 2 which includes The Revival Dash Wilder & Scott Dawson, plus Shawn Michaels and Bret Hitman Hart.
As the name suggests, you must be a WWE champion of some kind (WWE, WCW, ECW or NXT), to be included in the Hall of Champions series. So far of all, only ECW hasn’t been included in the line. Each WWE Hall of Champions item includes a championship belt.
This marks the fourth WWE action figure release for each Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson, who debuted under the name The Mechanics in 2014 on NXT. They were renamed simply as Dash & Dawson in 2015, a more catchy name, but it was in early 2016 when they were again renamed as The Revival.
It is this Hall of Champions Battle Pack which is based circa 2016, in the time when The Revival held the NXT Tag Team Championships on two separate occasions. They went into 2016 as champions and later reclaimed the belts from Alpha America at NXT Takeover: The End in June.
Other WWE Figures released to date from Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson include two single NXT TakeOver Elite figures and two Battle-Pack Series releases in series 45 and 50.
This Hall of Champions Battle-pack includes two NXT microphones, two NXT Tag Team Championships and a corner ring-steps accessory for use with a Mattel WWE ring play set.
The other Battle Pack in this series is Shawn Michaels vs Bret Hitman Hart from their WWE Championship match WrestleMania XII.
An obvious error on the back of the packaging (pictured) displays the WWE Attitude Era Championship, however WWE fans will remember this belt was not introduced until 1998, two years later. The correct belt was actually the Winged Eagle Championship belt, which is included. Other accessories included in this set feature a chair and ladder.
The infamous Iron Man match was dubbed by commentator Vince McMahon “the boyhood dream has come true”. It’s notable that it was a match involving the same wrestlers at Survivor Series 97 which was actually Vince McMahon’s last time as a regular commentator which lead into the Attitude Era where Stone Cold Steve Austin beat Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania 14. It was after this event where the Attitude Era belt pictured on the packaging was actually introduced.
