Introduced in 2000, Raw Deal is an out-of-print collectible card game published by Comic Images and licensed from World Wrestling Entertainment. It was released in August 2000. It was designed to replicate the action of a professional wrestling match. The game was designed by Michael Foley and Barron Vangor Toth. On November 14, 2007, Comic Images released a Press Release stating that they had lost the WWE License due to declining sales.
The game ceased production in December 2007. As of 2008, many of the players banded together to continue the game in what is now called the Virtual era. To date, 10 Virtual sets have been released, adding over 2,000 new cards to the game.
