It's probably against protocol (or at least largely frowned upon) to link to your own content, but I'm hoping an exception can be made for a long-time The W-er.

Mick Foley's co-writing a "WWE Superstars" comic book (with his "R.P.M." co-writer, Shane Riches) that takes the current WWE roster and places them in the crime noir world of "Titan City" -- featuring generally unexpected things such as a falsely imprisoned John Cena, police captain Christian and district attorney candidates Alberto Del Rio and Randy Orton having a heated debate during Miz TV.

I interviewed Foley (on Monday right before the Slammys went on air!) about it:

    We realized there's room for plenty of superstars on the roster to fit in, eventually. We wanted to recreate the divisiveness that John Cena is known for in the ring, and bring it outside the ring -- where he's loved by half the population, and loathed by the other half. The other characters just seemed like natural extensions of themselves.

If so, I've never followed protocol.

I really liked this comic! Imagine John Cena, Randy Orton, Triple H, CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, AJ, The Shield, etc. more or less with the looks and personalities you know, but plugged into an urban film noir crime drama, as all factions seek power or control over the fictional Titan City. And yet, there are wrestling rings sometimes and they all wrestle and do their signature moves. It's so weird but it's a lot of fun and it oddly works. A surprisingly well done and entertaining alternate universe take on WWE.

You are user #12. I'll give you a pass.

Believe me, I've heard about it Let's just say I'm the admin who grumbles less about it and leave it at that.

We do tend to prefer that the relevant content be brought here instead of just using this place as linkbait...

I feel my ears burning. I might pick this up if I can this weekend and do a written review of it. Arrow and Shield on hiatus, I might as well try new things.

My store missed ordering it, so hopefully it will be in next week. It sounds like it has potential to be decent, unlike the last WWE comic from Titan (not Vince's Titan) that was just awful.

Thankfully, the guy running my local comics shop is a wrestling fan, so I picked up a copy (Mark Henry/Cena cover).

I got some laughs out of it and there was a decent fight scene with the Wyatt Family. It was blah otherwise. I don't know if I'll get the rest of the story arc.

At least the glossy paper feels better than cheapish paper Marvel uses.

The reason Benoit left WCW in 2000 was because Sullivan was named Booker after they booted Russo the first time. I won't provide a link, because that is a pretty widely accepted fact if I am not mistaken.
