Cosmic Woman Brings New Mysteries to Sudden Death 2135


What are the secrets of Cosmic Woman? And what if even she doesn’t know the answers?

What isn’t a secret is how Cosmic Woman will shake the women’s ranks in the GWF like they’ve never been shaken before! Her finisher, VORTEX UNLEASHED, will have them running for the hills (or stars, or whatever!). Can anyone, including Lady Godsend, Elina, or Sinful, stop her?

Cosmic Woman will be joining forces with a new team called the Crime Stoppers. But why is this group coming to the GWF? What is their incredible story?

The amazing Crime Stoppers card art (by the venerable Darryl Banks with colors by wondrous Werner Mueck) will be six interlocking cards that form an image that tells a fantastic and far-reaching tale. What can it be?

The answers (some of them anyway) are coming shortly in SUDDEN DEATH 2135, the latest installment in the maxi-drama that is “A Universe Shattered.” Champions of the Galaxy is soaring to new heights of glory!

Hardcore Legend “Wild” Bull Curry to Come to Legends Expansion IV!

Back in the heyday of the territorial era of pro wrestling it didn’t get more hardcore than “Wild” Bull Curry!  Curry was a sight to behold with those trademark bushy eyebrows and his wild facial contortions that made fans truly believe he was a madman.  He was one of the most notorious rule breakers of his era, often using his trademark brass knuckles.  However, when Brass Knuckles were legal he would excel, having won a version of the Brass Knuckles title in Texas on at least 20 occasions.  How will he fare against more modern day hardcore wrestlers in your fed?  And will anyone dare to meet him in a Brass Knuckles match?

Bull Curry joins Abdullah the Butcher, Shane Douglas, Killer Kowalski, Sandman, Steve Corino, Justin Credible, Al Snow, and Ox Baker in the 10-card Legends Expansion Set 4.  This game edition and Special Edition cards for Francine and Bill Alfonso will debut July 13th at GalactiCon in the Philadelphia area!  The game will begin mailing to customers by July 22nd.  These games and the latest Champions of the Galaxy game edition GWF Sudden Death 2135 are available to preorder right now!
