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

Someone Bought This: Custom Man Mountain Rock figure with the most important accessory

0 Submitted by on Fri, 08 March 2019, 02:00
I found this custom Man Mountain Rock figure at WrestleToys.com. It’s better than the Hasbro custom one we featured earlier because this one does come with WWF logo guitar as illustrated! But sadly no crown. King Man Mountain Rock! Oh, what a wonderful world it would be if he had been crowned King of the WWF! Man Mountain Rock, what do Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Norman The Lunatic loves his teddy bear, and you can too!

1 Submitted by on Fri, 22 February 2019, 02:00
Before Mike Shaw was Bastion Booger, before he was Friar Ferguson, he was Norman The Lunatic in WCW. That was his entire gimmick- he was a stereotypical “crazy guy” who escaped from an insane asylum and (of course) had wild, crazy hair and was still wearing his asylum-issued outfit. Oh yeah, and he was managed by Teddy Long, playa! Norman Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Adam Bomb “Bomb Squad” shirt

4 Submitted by on Fri, 15 February 2019, 02:00
Adam Bomb was a heel whose gimmick was that.. um. .. he survived a nuclear explosion (or something). Then he turned face, threw little Nerf football “bombs”… …into the audience, and got his own “Bomb Squad” t-shirt. I guess his fans were called The Bomb Squad? I don’t really remember that, but whatever....

Someone Bought This: WCW Nitro Girls dress for your little girl (?)

2 Submitted by on Fri, 08 February 2019, 02:00
Bryan over at The WCW Worldwide Blog posted a 1998 WCW Merchandise Catalog. WCW Nitro Girls dresses for little girls. Now, someone please correct me if I’m wrong but the entire purpose of the Nitro Girls was to give guys something to oogle in -between matches. I can’t imagine that too many 6 year old girls A). Watched wrestling or B). Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: El Gigante shirt

I know this isn’t a very high-resolution image but I can’t find anything better (please shoot me an email if you have or find a better scan of this!). Look in the upper right corner! It’s an El Gigante shirt! I bet WCW sold a cool dozen of these! It’s neat (in a “I can’t believe someone bought that!” sort of Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Unreleased WWF Superstars cereal box featuring a tag team that licks ’em all!

Crapper Another Dave writes: Ran across this this morning- an unreleased WWF Superstars Cereal Box featuring the Bushwhackers! Because I know when I’m trying to keep food down there’s nothing like looking at Luke and Butch! Oh yes! Thinking about Luke and Butch licking random fans sure makes me want to grab a nice bowl of second rate wrestling themed Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Buy a Cactus Jacket from Cactus Jack!

3 Submitted by on Fri, 04 January 2019, 02:00
  Bryan over at The WCW Worldwide Blog found out that in 1994 Mick Foley ran a short-lived mail-order Leather Jacket catalog (!). Mick offered leather jackets for both men and women. Unfortunately there wasn’t much interest in the jackets and the business closed down pretty fast. I don’t know much about leather jackets but they look nice to me. Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: No Holds Barred- The shirt!

4 Submitted by on Fri, 28 December 2018, 02:00
If you’ve read R.D’s induction of No Holds Barred (and if you haven’t, you ought to) then you know the movie is… shall we say…. somewhat flawed. But Vince McMahon must have thought the movie would be really popular because the WWF put out this t-shirt featuring a drawing of Hulk Hogan (as Rip!) glaring at an enraged Zeus. Hulk looks like Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Sin Cara and Scooby-Doo figures

5 Submitted by on Fri, 14 December 2018, 02:00
A few years ago there was a WWE/Scooby Doo “WrestleMania Mystery” crossover cartoon movie. Here’s some figures of Sin Cara and Scooby-Doo, together at last. Can’t you just picture Sin Cara out at 6 AM taking Scooby out for walkies? The real mystery is why anyone would want this particular combination of figures. Oh-Ho-Ho-Ho!...

SOMEONE BOUGHT THIS: Fly Fishing Mike Rotundo Autographed Photo

2 Submitted by on Sun, 25 November 2018, 19:24
As discussed on WrestleCrap Radio…I never thought he’d top that Captain Mike shirt where he had a giant head popping out of a boat, but he sure tried! This was apparently out of the 1988 DANGER ZONE calendar, and if anyone is looking to get me a Christmas present, this would look great hanging up in my living room....

Someone Bought This: Chyna’s second dumbest shirt

1 Submitted by on Fri, 23 November 2018, 02:00
“Chyna Syndrome”? (Insert obvious STD joke here). Well, this isn’t quite as embarrassingly stupid as her Va-Chyna shirt, but it still doesn’t make any sense. It’s a reference to the movie The China Syndrome about a reporter who uncovers shady goings-on at a Nuclear Power Plant. So is this shirt saying that Chyna is a Nuclear-Powered Diva like Nuclear Man Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: A degenerate doggy!

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…

4 Submitted by on Fri, 26 October 2018, 02:00
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!

6 Submitted by on Fri, 05 October 2018, 02:00
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...
