WWE's Monsters of the Mat
As Halloween descends upon WWE.com, nightmarish incarnations of WWE’s most popular Superstars emerge from the darkness. See Roman Reigns, Bray Wyatt, Brock Lesnar and others as never before, then download and print your own versions of these supernatural monstrosities … if you dare. Digital imaging by Eric Heintz.
Asuka – The Woman with the Smile
The story of the Woman with the Smile is typically only told in hushed tones. She appears at 3 a.m. every half-moon and leaves her victims dead with fear. Some claim she’s a spirit searching for the peace she wasn’t afforded in her death, but one thing is for sure: Seeing her smirk (whether in person or not) would prove to be a fatal move.
The Undertaker – The King of the Dead
The legends are true. Hailing from the distant north, The King of the Dead presides over legions of corpse-like warriors, and he won’t rest in peace until the world of men cracks and crumbles in his icy grip. Halloween might be upon us now, but remember: Winter is coming.
Seth Rollins – The Mad Architect
From manipulating his friends and enemies to engineering “heists of the century,” few villains can lay claim to the dastardly innovations of The Mad Architect. Brooding alone in his tower, this insidious inventor uses his massive intellect to wreak havoc on all who oppose him, his distinct cackle ringing through the night with each bolt of lightning emanating from his lair.
Bray Wyatt – Terror of the Swamp
Rising each night from the muck of the Florida Everglades, this slime-covered monstrosity brings new meaning to the word “family” as he ensnares the minds of his brothers and sisters before dragging them to the murky depths below. Stay out of the swamp, and never — ever — follow the buzzards.
Roman Reigns – The Hound of Malice
After falling victim to an ancient curse, the savage Hound of Malice is forced to mercilessly devour his prey under the light of the full moon — the catalyst for his horrific transformations. Can the spell be broken before this creature strikes again?
Becky Lynch – The Red Banshee
Identified by her fiery-colored hair, The Red Banshee’s terrifying shrieks instill the fear of death into her enemies and those who would dare wrong her. Like other wailing faeries of Irish legend, the Red Banshee’s keening foretells one’s imminent and inevitable demise. Be wary of this vengeful spirit, though. If you’ve done wrong by her, the high-pitched screams may be for you.
Braun Strowman – Dr. Strowmanstein's Monster
The frightening result of experiments meant to conquer death, Dr. Strowmanstein’s Monster is a true horror. The mad scientist took the decaying body parts from the corpses of towering terrors of the human race and reanimated them into a frightening form. Now, this monster among men has broken the chains that bound him and walks among mere mortals, waiting to demolish anything brave (or stupid) enough to cross his path.
Dean Ambrose – The Unhinged
Scarred physically and emotionally during his lengthy stay at the asylum, this deranged inmate is out for vengeance against his former captors … and any other unfortunate soul who crosses his path. Camp counselors, wayward teenagers and hikers beware: The woods belong to The Unhinged tonight.
Big Show – The Giant of Wight Mountain
The Giant of Wight Mountain leaves ruin and despair in his wake as he hungrily lumbers from town to town, crushing villages underfoot as he sates his appetite for human flesh. There’s no use running from this terrifying behemoth when he stomps to your doorstep from his carrion-strewn cave in the mountains — just take solace that it will all be over soon.
Nakamura – The Slender King
The Slender King is a mysterious and unnerving sight to behold. Even when you think you are safe, he can strike at any time. His unnatural height, distinct red suit and unique mannerisms are enough to drive his victims to the brink of insanity without ever physically attacking. His style of attack on the psyche is so strong that approaching him is a fool’s errand and physically engaging him means inevitable doom.
Brock Lesnar — The Infernal Beast
Taking great pleasure in sentencing his victims to eternal torment, The Infernal Beast is the ultimate evil, ruling his flame-scorched kingdom of damnation for centuries. Dante once wrote about nine circles of Hell — the tenth is reserved for The Beast.
