is a Comic Book series written by Mick Foley
. It stars members of the WWE
in an Alternate Universe Film Noir
setting, though most of them retain aspects of their WWE Personae. The first issue was released in December 2013.
- Money in the Bank: When a briefcase containing $10 million goes missing, John Cena is accused of the crime. The only way to clear his name is to find the money, but only if he can do it before any of the other factions in Titan City get it. Meanwhile, Amoral Attorney Randy Orton is trying to become a Villain with Good Publicity in order to get into the D.A.'s office, but his efforts are hampered by Daniel Bryan, among others. And beneath it all, CM Punk is trying to rally a "Take Back the City" movement to bring the corrupt political machine down.
- Haze Of Glory: WWE Raw has been thrown into chaos. The arena is destroyed, the fans are trapped outside, and the WWE Championship is missing. Blame for this falls upon CM Punk, Rey Mysterio, and Daniel Bryan. The only problem is, none of them remember a thing about what happened. Now they must retrace their steps and figure out just what happened to cause such wanton destruction in order to save their jobs.
