Mattel, the creators of the WWE action figures, and THQ, the guys behind the Smackdown! series of games, have teamed up for a contest that ends in a couple weeks (on the 18th). Basically, you create a custom superstar, and if you win, that superstar will be made into an actual wrestling figure (but only one will ever be made). Be sure to read the rules on how to enter!
Hey wrestling fans, Marcus “the Hammer” Stephenson of THQ is doing WWE Raw recaps every week (starting today) over at the SVR Community blog. The big thing about this, though, is there will be contests to win prizes (hidden somewhere in the recap), and each article and prize will have some sort of tie to the Smackdown vs Raw games (you can read my review for 2011 here). If you’re interested, be sure to check out the giveaway for this week’s!
