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

Crapper Sean Bateman writes: I know about the AWA and the Wrestlemania VHS games, which Spoony reviewed, and I did play the WWE DVD game. All three are candidates for Wrestlecrap inductions or Somebody Bought This. But, somebody bought this WCCW/Von Erich game and it was not me. Here is the description for that game: The Official VON ERICH FAMILY Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: WCW Slam Jam cassette tape with awesome theme songs!

2 Submitted by on Fri, 30 April 2021, 02:00
If you were a kid in 1991 and saw this WCW Slam Jam theme song cassette at Mike Angelo’s Music Emporium in the mall, you know you’d gladly pay the sort-of pricy $15.99 they were asking for this baby so you could run home and play it on your cheap, but well-loved Sony Walkman. Yes, this is a tape so good that would Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: WWE Body Cals temporary tattoo stickers

1 Submitted by on Fri, 23 April 2021, 02:00
These are WWE Body Cals temporary tattoo stickers. They say “Stay Hyped” because… uh, I don’t know. “Body Cal” just reminds me of “Booty Call” which gives me a really uneasy feeling… You’re supposed to put them on your face, I guess… and even as a 9 year old I would have known that would make me look really, really Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Kevin Nash- now in comic book super hero figure form!

1 Submitted by on Fri, 09 April 2021, 02:00
Bryan over at The WCW Worldwide Archive found this WCW S.L.A.M Force Kevin Nash figure. It’s part of a line of figures featuring WCW wrestlers as super heroes (?!) and comes with a free mini comic book. The other figures in the line were Sting, Bret Hart, and Bill Goldberg. I’m going to assume they looked just as goofy as Continue Reading...

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

1 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…

5 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!

2 Submitted by on Fri, 29 January 2021, 02:00
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

4 Submitted by on Fri, 25 December 2020, 02:00
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...
