Wait, you’re telling me that if I time travel back to 1991 and order from this WWF catalog, I can proudly wear a Virgil shirt during the day, and rest my head upon a classy image of Sid Justice at night as I stare at my Sid Justice poster that I’ve taped to my ceiling wall?

Sold, sold, and sold!

I especially like the Sid t-shirt where it looks like he’s about to take a Trust Fall.

Hey WWE; why don’t you reproduce that Virgil shirt and sell it today in your line of classic shirts?

LICENSE TO PRINT MONEY!

    Perfect! Another item that people can not have Virgil sign at the next autograph show.

    “Virgil, a hot rising superstar of the WWF”

    The WWF would spout absolutely anything just to sell a t-shirt.

    • Alexandru says:

      Hell they do that now as well. But yeah saying Virgil is a hot rising superstar comes across as a bit desperate.

  3. Jeremy says:

    Virgil would probably like to sell that shirt himself to anybody he comes across on the subway.

  4. Brad says:

    It might seem silly now but in 1991 Virgil was getting a pretty decent mid-card push. Then he wrestled and talked and it was pretty much all over. lol

    • "The Big Cheese" Paul Kraft says:

      Yeah! He was pretty over for a period of time, there.

    • Anon says:

      93 was the fans were chanting “Virgil sucks!” on RAW. They had enough of Virgil.

      • Scrooge McSuck says:

        To be fair, that’s the smart Manhattan Center crowd. They also “Woo’ed” for Flair weeks after losing to Hennig, chanted Rooster at Terry Taylor, and ho-hummed Beefcake’s sympathy speech.

  5. John C says:

    I can’t believe they don’t have any plugs for Ico-Pro or the WBF on every page of the gimmick catalog since it was getting close to those flops to be unleashed.

  6. Alexandru says:

    Man never really realized how “out there” early 90’s clothing, in general, was. Wrestling merchandise seemed like it was pretty terrible during this time. Also If I had a Sid Justice pillowcase its doubtful I would ever go to sleep

  7. neverAcquiesce says:

    I first read this as, “You can sleep with Sid Justice, and show you’re a virgin too!” I immediately thought, “Yeah, that seems about right.”

  8. AK says:

    Well no wonder Virgil failed. All he had to do was pose like his image on the t-shirt and he couldn’t even do that properly.

    That will send you to jobber purgatory faster than well as quickly as Virgil’s push came and went.

  9. Matt Soileau says:

    Sid’s first WWF stint lasted, what, 9 months? Just might as well throw money in a barrel and light it on fire, Vince…

    • "The Big Cheese" Paul Kraft says:

      Yeah, but I can kind of see why Vince pushed him- he certainly had the look. He just didn’t have the personality to go along with it.

    Best of both worlds!

    A very colorful page.
