Fanatics are surely changing the world of sports collectibles under Candy Digital, which unites world class digital artists, designers, and technologists to a wide range of official NFTs (non-fungible tokens).

The NFT digital trading cars will of course feature famous wrestlers but also share the most historic and popular moments in wresting history.

Meanwhile, in other news, WWE Moonsault is a new project being developed alongside FOX’s ‘Blockchain Creative Labs’, its own NFT creative division.

This partnership is expected to be a lengthy one as Fanatics look set to become the exclusive provider of licensed WWE physical and digital trading cards. They will also exclusively re-introduce WWE Shop according to the official press release . This will enable WWE fans around the world to have access to WWE merchandise on the e-commerce and mobile app. The categories feature apparel, title belts, headwear, and more.

It has not been confirmed which wrestlers will first appear on the NFT trading cards, but keep your eyes peeled…it’s rumoured John Cena or Hulk Hogan could be on Web3 soon.
