Obscure, strange, and sometimes downright horrible wrestling merchandise that someone paid good money to obtain.

Someone Bought This: A degenerate doggy!

2 Submitted by on Fri, 02 November 2018, 02:00
In 1999 The New Age Outlaws were really popular. So was D-Generation X. So, WWE decided to release this Road Dogg plush bulldog. It’s neon green, and it’s got ATTITUDE! You can tell because it’s wearing sunglasses like Poochie! Because nothing says “degenerate bad ass” like selling a stuffed plush dog toy of yourself to kids. It kind of looks Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: It seemed like a cool shirt at the time…

Someone bought this D-Generation X… And that “someone” was uh… me. But I can explain! Picture it… Sicily, 1924… Oh wait sorry, wrong story! Picture it… It was 1998. I was 17 years old. The Attitude Era was in full swing. D-Generation X was all over TV and had been doing some very funny skits. Oh yeah, and they had really Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Stone Cold Steve Austin’s jacket is a real manly color!

Stone Cold Steve Austin is a real man’s man! He’s the toughest of the tough! He’s a true bad ass! And nothing says “Manly Man Tough Guy Bad Ass” like a satin jacket with powder blue sleeves and piping! Oh well, at least it has the Evil Red-Eyed Skull logo on it- that helps balance things out a bit, doesn’t it? Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: The most forgettable tag team of the 90’s got a trading card?!

3 Submitted by on Fri, 14 September 2018, 02:00
I was browsing through the awesome Wrestling Trading Cards database site and I came across this gem. From a 1995 WWF Magazine comes this Tekno Team 2000 trading card. I love that they got their own trading card despite only being in the WWF for like 4 months and doing absolutely nothing of note in that time. Tekno Team 2000 were Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: A shirt fit for any beefcake in San Fransisco

4 Submitted by on Fri, 07 September 2018, 02:00
It’s a shirt featuring Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake carrying a gigantic pair of novelty scissors while wearing his Chippendales Dancer bowtie and pink zebra striped tights. If you wear this shirt it will defiantly get people talking about you, but probably not for the reasons you want… “I getsk my hair cut by Brutus all the time! He has such a gentle, Continue Reading...

A Wrestlecrap Guide to G-1 Climax Shirts by Paul Sebert Welcome to part two of Wrestlecrap’s look at New Japan’s G1 Shirts. Yes the annual tournament isn’t just a grueling competition, it’s also a cash cow in which the company churns out a mountain of merch. It’s a magical time when even the lowliest underdog can get his own gear. Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: G1 Special In WrestleCrap

A Wrestlecrap Guide to G-1 Climax Shirts Hi my name is Paul Sebert, and I’ve been a wrestling fan since childhood even writing a (a frankly terrible) wrestling column for college paper during the Monday Night War years. In more recent years I’ve been something of a contributor to this website, submitting many candidates to Paul Kraft’s “It Came From Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Pitch ’till you win and get some Hulk Hogan and Steve Austin carnival glass!

4 Submitted by on Fri, 27 July 2018, 02:00
I’ve written about a fantastic piece of Hulk Hogan carnival glass that Matt over at Dinosaur Dracula found in the past, and now I’ve found more! These are the kind of tacky, but somehow really interesting (in cheap knockoff sort of way) prizes you could win at carnivals and State Fairs after you somehow manage to win at one of the rigged games. Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: The Chris Jericho “Wanna-Bee” t-shirt is bee-yond lame!

10 Submitted by on Fri, 20 July 2018, 02:00
Today we have the Chris Jericho “Wanna-Bee” shirt. It has a dead  bee on it (because Chris apparently hates “Jumpin” Jim Brunzell and B. Brian Blair for some reason). So he added an extra “e” to “Wannabe” and put a picture of a dead be on the shirt, because… Uh… Take it away, Spice Girls! If you wannabe fashionable, just stay Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Sunny’s autobiography- you really can judge a book by its cover!

5 Submitted by on Fri, 13 July 2018, 02:00
A few years ago Tammy “Sunny” Sytch released an autobiography. Hey, is that bird crap on the cover? Oh, it’s supposed to be a shattered windshield. Well, her life has kind of been like a car crash I guess… Hey look, there’s a typo on the back cover blurb! “The original WEE Diva”? Is it too much to ask that a Continue Reading...

Are you having problems in life? Do you need some friendly advice? Maybe a laugh or two? Captain Lou Albano is here to help! From the 1987 WWF merchandise catalog comes “The Wit And Wisdom Of Captain Lou Albano” authored by (who else?) The Captain himself! Yes, it even includes an introduction by Vince McMahon himself! I wonder what the Continue Reading...
