WWE Elite 83 - Announced Lineup & Predictions

Ringside has announced / put elite 83 up for preorder  so I’m going to get into what was announced and make some predictions on what attires we may see. I think we’ll see these all revealed next week at Digital Ringside Fest  but it’s fun to try and predict for now.
  • Edge (+ Chase)
  • Sasha Banks
  • King Corbin
  • Drew McIntyre
  • Dusty Rhodes
  • Micheal P.S. Hayes (Store Exclusive)

A couple of these were mock-up renders that were shown earlier in the year at SDCC, so that makes things a bit easier. 


With us knowing that the upcoming Edge Ultimate will be from Royal Rumble, I think that locks up the Elite and chase attires. He’s only had 3 matches since returning, so you have to assume they hit those two matches here. I think the regular is Wrestlemania 36, and the chase is Backlash 2020.

Sasha Banks:

We know Sasha based on a reveal at SDCC. I think it’s is an awesome choice, and early on I thought that maybe the chase would be Sasha, and it being her RAW return from the night after Summerslam 2019. This was a good choice, and if the figure looks as good as the mock-up, I may grab it to put on the shelf with Elite 80 Bayley. 

King Corbin:

Another one that had already been shown off, so we know exactly what we’re getting. Not much to say here other than it looks like they did a perfect job. It has everything it needs, and captures the initial part of the King Corbin run perfectly.

Drew McIntyre:

I think we get a Wrestlemania 36 Drew figure here, complete with entrance coat and WWE title. I couldn’t find a picture of it, but if I recall the back of his tights had something similar to the match shirt they released, with the Brock skull thingy having a sword through it. 

Dusty Rhodes:

Going off the board here because... why not? Yellow polka dot Dusty is covered via early legends lines, WCW era is covered with the WCW ring and Elite 63 - what’s really left? I would love an NXT era Dusty, but I don’t see it happening. With nWo Hogan set to drop soon, get as many of these unreleased nWo figures out as possible. Outside of a re-release I have NO clue on any realistic possibilities for this one.

Micheal P.S. Hayes:

Do I expect this? No. But I’m predicting with my heart! There’s a 99% chance we’re getting Freebirds era Hayes, and that’s FINE. But you can’t just give me that retro Hardy Boyz two pack, release a Hayes figure after, and NOT complete the trio as it was intended. Either way I’ll probably grab this once I see it, cause you can’t go wrong with a Micheal PS Hayes figure (no matter what era they choose).


All around a good lineup. It’s a bit strange that it’s only at 5 + store exclusive instead of the standard 6 + store exclusive, but I read some stuff that the rumoured lineup had Velveteen Dream. Probably a good call if amidst everything going on with him that they pull any figures they can for upcoming lineups.
