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

Someone Bought This: This WCW Lex Luger toy is tall (and boring)

0 Submitted by on Fri, 24 September 2021, 02:00
Here’s a WCW Lex Luger figure made by Galoob. What kid wouldn’t want to pretend to be Lex, who had all the personality of an empty toilet paper tube? “I’m 14″ tall and ready to brawl”? Isn’t that the line Chris Candito used to land Tammy Sytch? Check out that price tag- I didn’t know that Greg ran a toy store Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: WCW can’t even get simple characters right on trading cards

2 Submitted by on Fri, 20 August 2021, 02:00
This is Mr. Wall Street’s WCW trading card. AKA: Irwin R. Schyster. AKA: I.R.S. AKA: Mike Rotunda AKA: Mike Rotundo. Phew… Anyway, let’s take a look at the back of the card which features a little blurb about him: Wait, “his multi-million dollar inheritance”? Uh, but I thought he made all of his money in the stock market? Hence the name Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Ken Patera’s unique wardrobe choice for his WWF Magazine cover

0 Submitted by on Fri, 13 August 2021, 02:00
WWF Magazine: Hey Ken! Good news! We’d like to photograph you for the cover of the upcoming WWF Magazine! Ken: Okay, I’ll do it… but I insist on wearing my 1984 Olympic muscle shirt that shrunk in the wash. WWF Magazine: Okay, I guess we can allow that. Ken: and I want to cut up so it shows my nipples. Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: 7-11 and the lazy caricature artist

3 Submitted by on Fri, 06 August 2021, 02:00
In 1985 7-11 put out a series of WWF Slurpee cups including this one featuring Wendi Richter! I know it’s a caricature so it’s supposed to be a little silly and exaggerated, but this really doesn’t look anything like her. Look- this is Wendi Richter: Whoever drew her caricature for the cup… …seems to think she’s an Asian woman with Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: A toy line with the worst possible name

2 Submitted by on Fri, 30 July 2021, 02:00
In 1997 Jakks-Pacific released a line of WWF statues that were pretty unremarkable except for the fact that they were called… “Heroes Of Wrestling”. Gee, what does that remind you of? Okay, so this toy line came out a year before the terrible independent wrestling show (you can read all about that in The WrestleCrap Archives) but I still thought it was a funny Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: The WCW Nitro Grill referee shirt really eats it!

1 Submitted by on Fri, 16 July 2021, 02:00
Bryan over at the WCW Worldwide blog found this WCW Nitro Grill referee shirt amongst other Nitro Grill stuff, and boy oh boy is it ugly! You’d look really stupid wearing it just about anywhere, including a wrestling show. This shirt would only be useful if you want to look like you work at a Footlocker shoe store. And really, Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: NWA Mello Yello shirt

It’s an NWA Mello Yello shirt in blindingly bright yellow! This beautiful piece of apparel was released to promote the NWA Mello Yello cans which you’ll remember from the commercial with Dusty Rhodes!  Now I want both a cold, refreshing Mello Yello and some old school NWA on my TV again....

Someone Bought This: Suburban Commando- the shirt!

0 Submitted by on Fri, 14 May 2021, 02:00
It’s a Suburban Commando promotional t-shirt! What’s more, it’s a hideously ugly neon Suburban Commando promotional t-shirt! Oh boy! I love how abstract this is- a large green planet earth with some Monopoly properties on it that are supposed to represent (I guess) the suburbs. What’s that one building supposed to be? A church? Now granted, I haven’t seen the movie Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: The Official Von Erich Family World Class Championship Wrestling game!

3 Submitted by on Fri, 07 May 2021, 02:00
Crapper Sean Bateman writes: I know about the AWA and the Wrestlemania VHS games, which Spoony reviewed, and I did play the WWE DVD game. All three are candidates for Wrestlecrap inductions or Somebody Bought This. But, somebody bought this WCCW/Von Erich game and it was not me. Here is the description for that game: The Official VON ERICH FAMILY Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: WCW Slam Jam cassette tape with awesome theme songs!

3 Submitted by on Fri, 30 April 2021, 02:00
If you were a kid in 1991 and saw this WCW Slam Jam theme song cassette at Mike Angelo’s Music Emporium in the mall, you know you’d gladly pay the sort-of pricy $15.99 they were asking for this baby so you could run home and play it on your cheap, but well-loved Sony Walkman. Yes, this is a tape so good that would Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: WWE Body Cals temporary tattoo stickers

2 Submitted by on Fri, 23 April 2021, 02:00
These are WWE Body Cals temporary tattoo stickers. They say “Stay Hyped” because… uh, I don’t know. “Body Cal” just reminds me of “Booty Call” which gives me a really uneasy feeling… You’re supposed to put them on your face, I guess… and even as a 9 year old I would have known that would make me look really, really Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Kevin Nash- now in comic book super hero figure form!

3 Submitted by on Fri, 09 April 2021, 02:00
Bryan over at The WCW Worldwide Archive found this WCW S.L.A.M Force Kevin Nash figure. It’s part of a line of figures featuring WCW wrestlers as super heroes (?!) and comes with a free mini comic book. The other figures in the line were Sting, Bret Hart, and Bill Goldberg. I’m going to assume they looked just as goofy as Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Protect yourself from circa 1985 rain in style!

1 Submitted by on Fri, 05 March 2021, 02:00
From the mid-80’s, it’s a WWF Rain Jacket (or rain coat if you prefer) in eye-catching blue! It includes a hood so you don’t get your noggin wet! It comes complete with an embroidered WWF logo. This is great if A). It’s raining, and B). You want to emulate Sean Mooney’s fashion sense: “This is okay for rain, but I much prefer Continue Reading...
