In 1985 7-11 put out a series of WWF Slurpee cups including this one featuring Wendi Richter!

I know it’s a caricature so it’s supposed to be a little silly and exaggerated, but this really doesn’t look anything like her.

Look- this is Wendi Richter:

Whoever drew her caricature for the cup…

…seems to think she’s an Asian woman with a severe case of bedhead.

7-11AsianBedheadWendiRichter.com! I bet that URL’s not taken!

Also, how many people could have possibly wanted the Wendi Richter cup in the first place?!

    I was a big Wendi Richter fan in the 1980s, and definitely would have loved to have a Wendi Richter cup, but not one *that* ugly. – Paul

    Don’t forget that Richter was second only to Hogan in terms of popularity during the Rock ‘N Wrestling era … if Vince hadn’t decided that women wrestlers shouldn’t be paid the same amount as the males, she might have had a chance to even surpass him!

    • Chris says:

      Wasn’t Richter that popular because she was hanging around with Cyndi Lauper?
      I’m not saying that Richter didn’t deserve better, but without Lauper I don’t think she’d ever surpass Hogan at that time.

      As far as the cup, I think it looks like Roseanne Barr.
