July 14, 2016: If John Cena, The Rock, Undertaker, Ric Flair, Seth Rollins, Sasha Banks and Charlotte could all appear together in an event in their prime, it might rival some of the biggest WWE box office attractions ever.
Topps has done what arguably might be the next best thing with the launch of WWE SLAM '16, WWE’s first digital trading card app.
According to Topps, WWE SLAM '16 will "bring thousands of WWE Superstars to life with exclusive digital cards that can be collected and traded with fans worldwide."
The app debuted today and is available to download for free on iOS and Android devices through the Apple App Store and Google Play.

In addition to the aforementioned stars, Topps WWE SLAM '16 will feature thousands of digital trading cards of WWE personalities past and present.
