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

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

3 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...

Someone Bought This: Do you need life advice? Captain Lou is here to help!

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...

Someone Bought This: Steve Austin and The Undertaker walkie-talkies

5 Submitted by on Fri, 04 May 2018, 02:00
It’s Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Undertaker Walkie Talkies!  Okay, if you’re 6 or 7 Walkie Talkies are always fun to mess around with, but with these it looks like the microphones are pretty close to their crotches… Also, these look like they’d be really hard to hold in your hand when you’re running around. I’d probably end up dropping Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Ahmed Johnson goes undercover as… something.

6 Submitted by on Fri, 06 April 2018, 02:00
This is an Ahmed Johnson figure from the S.T.O.M.P line where wrestlers had secret jobs as… spies? Secret Agents? I don’t know what Ahmed is really supposed to be, here. With the club (?) and the chainsaw (!) he kind of looks like a deranged farmer. All right, everybody sing along! “Old McJohnson had a farm… BOZO SOUP AND STARS!” Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Wrestlemania VII shirt is funny once you know why…

3 Submitted by on Fri, 30 March 2018, 02:00
It’s a Wrestlemania VII shirt advertising that the event took place at the Los Angles Memorial Coliseum. This shirt is hilarious! Why, you ask? Because (quoting from Wikipedia…): WrestleMania VII was originally scheduled to be held at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, but the WWF decided to move the event to the adjacent Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena. The WWF’s Continue Reading...
