SDCC 2012 WWE Mattel Panel
This was the first panel I attended at SDCC of 2012. The energy in the room was electrifying as three superstars were introduced to answer questions from the fans and discuss Mattel action figures. First was Zach Ryder, a fan favorite as he was cutting edge in the way that he ascended in popularity with WWE fans. Zach did this by creating his own YouTube show which created buzz and notoriety as a result. Next was Ireland’s own Sheamus, another popular superstar with WWE fans. I yelled, "hey fellow’ as the crowd calmed, as this is one of Sheamus’s catch phrases. The superstars were very interactive with the crowd, and Sheamus was no different, as he quickly yelled back, "Yeah fellow". Next to come to the front was the most popular and arguably hottest superstar at the time, CM Punk. He is known for his straight edge lifestyle and straight forward mic skills.
