Had over 100 Jakks ones when I was a kid, me and my siblings would do our own weekly RAW, SmackDown shows and monthly PPVs, good times, I'm envious of some of the stuff available now, Mattel look so much better in comparison to Jakks.
I started collecting again between 2014 to the start of this year, to display them, but I've been so turned off by current WWE that I stopped.
I still kept my AJ Lee collection, I know "shocker" pretty easy to maintain it since they no longer make figures of her. #notcreepy
Also have a Sasha Banks collection that I'm trying to decide if it's worth continuing.
I mainly just collect Funko Pop now (not WWE) but I'm considering purchasing the WWE Mattel Aleister Black when it's released, that thing looks like a work of art. Also recently got into collecting Final Fantasy Bandai figures, so they have my attention at the moment.
As for Sasha these two are the only ones close to looking like her assuming you have them already.
i collected jakks figures back in the first half of the 2000s. i bought pretty much anyone but with undertaker figures taking main stage. myself & friend i grew up with used to do our own shows while wwe played in the background.
wasn't until 2012ish when i bought my first mattel elite, and i've since steadily grew a new collection of (mostly) elites and exclusives. some boxed others not. some customising has been going on too, mainly head & joint swapping and light painting here and there to cover minor factory inaccuracies.

I used to have those heavy rubber figures when I was a kid, the ones that were about 7 or 8 inches in height and would hurt like a bitch if you whipped them at your brothers, haha. I had Hulk, Macho, Jake the Snake, and for some reason a Jim Neidhart one, lol.
I don't collect any but still got all the ones from my youth (mostly well used!):
- mini rubber bendy Capt Lou & Hulk
- larger hard rubber LJN Hulk, Andre, Koko, Hercules, Hart Foundation, Muraco (I'm sure there was one more but mind blanking)
- WCW Nash (with referee) and Goldberg (with title and 'masked wrestler' aka Rey 😂 both still in good condition on their cards, plus the ring (not such good condition somehow!) which I got as a semi joke present on my 18th birthday in '99 from my siblings.
We had more Star Wars, Masters of the Universe & GI Joes growing up though which got more play as wrestlers than the actual wrestling toys hah!
I donít, but I used to only own about a dozen figures as a child. I had the SD ring and John Cena & Batista were my main event guys. I just fed my jobbers like Funaki and Chris Masters to them all the time.
