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

Someone Bought This: Stupid in America, and Banned In Canada!

Crapper Paul S. writes: So back during the late 90s/early 00s TSN would air RAW on tape delay and occasionally edit out some of the more violent or racier moments. So looking to make a quick buck the WWF released a “Banned in Canada” VHS tape featuring a whopping 2015 35 minutes of uncensored footage of Steve Austin swearing, DX Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Early 90’s WCW stickers might blind you

1 Submitted by on Fri, 19 November 2021, 02:00
Today we have some WCW vinyl stickers! Wow, look at those uh… unique blindingly bright, colorful backgrounds (hello early 90’s!) and artwork that only vaguely resembles the wrestler it’s supposed to be representing. How hard would it have been to just put some actual pictures of the wrestlers on the stickers? Who decided to put ugly artwork on these instead?!...

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

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

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

1 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...
