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

Someone Bought This: The Highlanders figures

3 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...

Someone Bought This: Say what, Warrior?

2 Submitted by on Fri, 31 July 2020, 02:00
“Created By Destiny… Bonded By Belief”? What in the hell is that supposed to mean?! It sounds like the world’s worst Krazy Glue slogan! I believe this is a shirt created by Warrior himself and sold by him instead of something WWE made. I don’t think WWE would put a saying quite this stupid and meaningless on a shirt (and Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: The WCW Bill Goldberg toy truck looks familiar…

2 Submitted by on Fri, 19 June 2020, 02:00
This is a WCW Road Rebels Bill Goldberg toy truck that comes with a Goldberg figure. First of all, Goldberg looks like he’s auditioning for Right Said Fred with that vest/muscle shirt combo outfit… But what the truck really seems to be is a souped-up version of Fred Sanford’s salvage truck from Sanford And Son. “WCW, you big dummies!”....

Someone Bought This: Not just a referee figure- a talking referee figure!

2 Submitted by on Fri, 05 June 2020, 02:00
It’s a talking referee figure. I’ll just let the company that made it describe it… Three Counting and Talking Referee Action Figure by Figures Toy Company. Squeeze his legs together and he will throw his arm up and say five different sayings! This goes great with your other wrestling action figures and accessories. Takes 3 LR44 watch batteries (included). Figure Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Mexican Mad Magazine is awesome!

2 Submitted by on Fri, 29 May 2020, 02:00
Crapper Paul S. writes: From the WCW Worldwide blog check out this Mexican edition of Mad Magazine! Wow, La Parka just kicked the crap out of Superman! That’ll teach him for making us all sit through Superman IV! And yet La Parka still couldn’t get a decent push in WCW… Forget Kryptonite! Superman’s real weakness is apparently the deadly folding chair!...

Someone Bought This: The Hillbilly And The Hulkster- Tag Team Champs?

4 Submitted by on Fri, 01 May 2020, 02:00
This is a set of Hulk Hogan and Hillbilly Jim figures that are supposed to be a tag team (?) that come with the Tag Team Championship belts (?!). I’m pretty sure Hulk Hogan and Hillbilly Jim never tagged together, so they were never the Tag Team Champions (thank goodness!). But the real mystery here is… Why doesn’t this come with Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: It’s time to finger a friend with WCW Finger Fighters!

5 Submitted by on Fri, 24 April 2020, 02:00
We’ve covered lots of WWE and WCW thumb wrestling toys before here in Someone Bought This, but today we have something new- WCW Finger Fighters! They call them Finger Fighters even though you use your thumbs. I guess “Thumb Thwackers” wasn’t quite as catchy a name? “Comes complete with RING OF DOOM play board”. Scott Keith aught to sue these people. Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: The most violent wrestling game I’ve ever seen…

8 Submitted by on Fri, 10 April 2020, 02:00
This is a weird one.. It’s the WWF Superstars Wrestling Arcade Game by Helm Toy. The goal of the game is to shoot the wrestlers with the gun to earn points! I guess it’s supposed to be like a throwback to an old-timer Shooting Gallery carnival game, but it just seems kind of morbid and creepy- especially since a decent Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: A prized signed WCW card

Here’s a an autographed WCW Erik Watts trading card from the late 90’s! You may remember Erik as Bill Watts’ son. Or since you’re a Crapper, you probably remember him as Troy, one half of Tekno Team 2000 with Trevor (Chad Fortune). Okay Crappers, show of hands… How many of you knew that Erik Watts was even in WCW in 1998/1999? Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: The Undertaker- zombie, biker, businessman.

2 Submitted by on Fri, 06 March 2020, 02:00
This is a shirt from that weird period where The Undertaker suddenly stopped being an undead zombie and started being a bad ass redneck biker. Apparently this was just a phase because he went back to being an undead zombie later. “Deadman Inc”? Well, I guess that makes more business sense than “Deadman, LLC”. You have to protect your assets, Continue Reading...
