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

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

0 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...

Someone Bought This: A weird, terrifying pack of Jakks figures…

4 Submitted by on Fri, 26 February 2021, 02:00
This is a set of figures released by Jakks-Pacific in 1997… Okay, a few things: This is a really random assortment of figures- Sunny, Bret Hart, Psycho Sid, and Vince McMahon? Was there some feud involving these four people that I missed? Bret and Vince look okay, but Sunny and Psycho Sid look terrible and don’t look a thing like Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Ric Flair WHOOs and spins!

Crapper Dusty Cappel sent in a picture of his WCW Ric Flair Spinner top. Look! It has one of those pull cord things! Oh yeah, and it’s neon orange and green- which of course are just the kind of colors you would associate with Ric Flair. SpinningFlairFun.com! I bet that URL’s not taken…...

Someone Bought This: Hulk Hogan is tiny and zombified!

2 Submitted by on Fri, 01 January 2021, 02:00
This is a Hulk Hogan S.L.U.G Zombie figure.  Well, actually it’s a Hulk Hogan knockoff since it isn’t licensed or really called “Hulk Hogan” but whatever. S.L.U.G stands for Super Ugly Little Guys. They’re like M.U.S.L.E figures, I guess. So yes, it’s basically a little green zombie Hulk Hogan. This is one of those things that’s cool to have if Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Hulk Hogan “Hulkster” painter’s cap

Hey kids! Want to look like a total idiot? Then get your hands on this Hulk Hogan “Hulkster” painter’s cap! (I want to note that my auto-correct wanted to change “Hulkster” to “Huckster”. Hmm…). I seriously can’t think of any situation where anyone of any age at any point in time in any situation would look cool wearing this painter’s cap. Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: A hideous WWF Crush shirt

2 Submitted by on Fri, 18 December 2020, 02:00
Shakabrah!!! Even Stevie Wonder would say “Dude, that Crush shirt is too damn ugly and bright! Tone it down, man!” If you wanted to sum up the earl 90’s with a color palette, I think this would be it! Purple, neon yellow, and bright orange! It kind of makes his Demolition gear look subtle by comparison, doesn’t it?...

Someone Bought This: Wrestling Troll dolls?

1 Submitted by on Fri, 13 November 2020, 02:00
In the early 90’s, Troll dolls were hugely popular. So some company got the idea to take traditional action figures and give them Troll doll heads. And thus, we got the Troll Force line! They made knockoffs of plenty of popular action figures, including wrestling figures! They called one of the wrestlers “Big T”. (No, not him!). The other one was Mohawk. (No, Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: The Genius’ poetry book offer from WWF Magazine

4 Submitted by on Fri, 06 November 2020, 02:00
Crapper Louis Izzo writes: From the pages of WWF Magazine, the April ’91 issue to be exact. Seriously, what is this? Is this some goofy gimmick to get people to hand Vince their mailing addresses, or was there a serious attempt at marketing something from the Genius as a legitimate product? Wow! I guess blondes really do have more fun! Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Batista talking pen

1 Submitted by on Fri, 02 October 2020, 02:00
You’d better use this Batista talking pen at home, and only at home. Because if you go out in public anywhere like the bank or school and press the button to make it play a clip of Batista talking you’re going to make people want to hit you very hard, very quickly. Well, at least the sound clips are “intense”…...

Someone Bought This: The Highlanders figures

4 Submitted by on Fri, 18 September 2020, 02:00
It’s a two-pack of The Highlanders figures- one of the most forgettable tag-teams of the 2000’s. Who thought that kids or adults would want to buy figures of these two? Hey, remember when Robbie showed up in the audience of TNA Impact the weekend of Wrestlemania in 2008? We do! 3/27/08. Never forget....

Someone Bought This: WCW Worldwide shirt

0 Submitted by on Fri, 11 September 2020, 02:00
Back in 1999/2000 if you watched WCW Worldwide you could email them with a question for a wrestler. If they picked your question, they’d read it on the air and a wrestler would answer it. Better yet, you won a spiffy WCW Worldwide logo shirt! According to Bryan at The WCW Worldwide Blog they were t-shirts with the WCW Worldwide logo Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Adam Bomb’s bomb!

3 Submitted by on Fri, 04 September 2020, 02:00
Remember when Adam Bomb turned face and threw these little Nerf footballs into the audience? LICENCE TO GET THE AUDIENCE’S FAVOR! Actually the fans didn’t care about him anymore as a face than they did as a heel because it was the exact same character. If you weren’t one of the 3 or 4 lucky fans to catch one of Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: RDV?

1 Submitted by on Fri, 28 August 2020, 02:00
In 2011 TNA featured this Rob Van Dam shirt on their website as one of their new releases. Wait a minute… RDV? Rob’s Damn Van? Oh, it’s supposed to be RVD! Poor Rob. Even he must not have been as high as TNA’s merchandise designers! They actually did correct it when it went into production. Much better!...

Someone Bought This: AWA and WCW toy rings

2 Submitted by on Fri, 21 August 2020, 02:00
This is why you need good artwork that actually represents your product. This is the Remo AWA toy wrestling ring. Look at how small that ring looks on the artwork! It’s as if they’re wrestling in a postage stamp! This is why proper scale is important when drawing things, Crappers. Look at the crowd in the foreground. It looks like Continue Reading...
