"We are thrilled to have had the opportunity to create action figures that bring two adored brands together in a unique way," said Karl Aaronian, senior VP of marketing at Playmates Toys.

"Both Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and WWE fans will love the introduction of their favourite WWE Superstars reimagined as the Turtles as they create the ultimate sewer match."

In the collection, Leonardo has taken on the role of WWE Superstar John Cena, Raphael is WWE Hall of Famer Sting, Donatello has been depicted as WWE Superstar Undertaker, while Michelangelo has been created as WWE Hall of Famer "Macho Man" Randy Savage.

The new collection will be available exclusively at Walmart in early November.
