This is the WWF/WWE “With Authority!” online collectable card game which came out in 2001.
Here’s what the official website looked like in the Spring of 2001.
Apparently the game wasn’t popular enough to stay around more than a few years but a small core group of fans are still playing it.
I guess the concept sounds like fun, but… I get the idea of playing the game with real cards, but I don’t get the idea of pouring real money into an online version of the game where the game can be shut down at any time (and of course, it eventually was), meaning you wasted all your money on “virtual” cards that now no longer exist.
There was a “Raw Deal” (sounds like what happens when R.D stays out in the sun too long!) collectable card game that used real cards which seems like a much better investment to me. They stopped updating that game in 2008.
