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

Someone Bought This: The Razor Ramon foam razor is so very wrong…

25 Submitted by on Wed, 13 August 2014, 02:00
This Razor Ramon foam razor was produced in the mid-90’s and meant to be waved around at WWF live events like the classic “We’re #1!” Foam Finger. Seems harmless enough, right? Except it’s a razor because the Razor Ramon character was implied to be wealthy Cuban immigrant cocaine dealer… …and razors are often used to cut coke into lines so you Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Buy a piece of the table Dixie Carter went through!

17 Submitted by on Mon, 11 August 2014, 14:39
I just saw this on Lords Of Pain… TNA is selling just 86 pieces of the table that Dixie Carter went through on last Thursday’s Impact Wrestling. The $199.99 item also comes with photos, a letter of authenticity and a piece of the canvas. Let’s see, here… $199.99 x 86 pieces means you could totally corner the market on this collectable for Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Miss Elizabeth and Demolition drinking glasses are sure to make our hobo happy!

This one’s for you, Blade! Yes, they’re drinking glasses of Miss Elizabeth and Demolition! You can drink from Liz on a hot summer’s day while laying on her beach towel!  I think they started out as Welch’s Jelly Jars from Canada (?). Anyone know the history of these things for sure? There were at least 6 or 7 different ones....

It Came From YouTube: Joe Gagne reviews Royal Rumble for the Sega Dreamcast

9 Submitted by on Fri, 08 August 2014, 15:00
Here’s Joe Gagne’s latest wrestling video game review- WWF Royal Rumble for the Sega Dreamcast! Apparently this game falls under the “Not bad, just mediocre” category. I never played it in the arcades or on the Dreamcast so I’ll take Joe’s word for it! I just love the idea of a Royal Rumble with an unlimited number of participants in it- Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: The Million Dollar Belt cost WWE how much?

11 Submitted by on Wed, 06 August 2014, 15:00
The newest episode of WWE Warehouse features Ted DiBiase’s Million Dollar Belt and an interview with the person who helped create it! Dig the amazing vintage vignette footage of Ted DiBiase in his fantastic evil cape! How cool is that? Oh sure, the belt is awesome and mighty impressive looking, but WWE spent $40,000 on it in 1989! $40,000!!! You’re telling Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Hacksaw Jim Duggan “U.S.A” picture disc vinyl and CD singles!

14 Submitted by on Wed, 06 August 2014, 02:00
Look what I found! It’s a 12″ U.K Hacksaw Jim Duggan U.S.A Picture Disc! It features 3 versions of “U.S.A”: Extended Club Mix Techno Mix Album Version Yes, I get the irony of this being a U.K exclusive (somebody call Alanis Morissette!) I’m getting a fantastic image of Hacksaw up in the DJ booth at a nightclub spinning these three versions Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: This is a dream matchup?

12 Submitted by on Mon, 04 August 2014, 02:00
I stumbled onto this wrestling magazine from the late 90’s and the cover made me laugh. Roddy Piper Vs. Steve Austin is a dream match? Who thought this was a dream match?! Yeah, I don’t know either, Mr. Mountain Rock! “Revenge”? Revenge for what?! Did Steve steal Roddy’s newspaper? Did Roddy let his dog poop on Steve’s lawn? Inquiring minds Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Finally you can throw your sticky balls right at Hulk Hogan’s face!

7 Submitted by on Sun, 03 August 2014, 02:00
Yes, you can do just that thanks to the miracle of velcro, and the Hulk Hogan Safety Target Set. Oh sure, it’s not as rewarding as lobbing a sharp-tipped dart at Hulk’s forehead, but I guess this is okay, too… And check out Hulk’s forehead! Yes ladies, finally, we have proof that Hulk is in fact a “10”! Ooh la-la! Actually, Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Hillbilly Jim’s chart-topping single

9 Submitted by on Fri, 01 August 2014, 02:00
Here’s the single for Hillbilly Jim’s classic song from The Wrestling Album “Don’t Go Messin’ With A Country Boy”. I like the reflective, content look on Jim’s face on the picture sleeve. He’s probably content because he just got done having a grueling, exhausting wrestling match with his trusty hound dog Bubba on a soiled mattress. (eww….). AManAmongMen.com! I bet Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake foam clippers are a cut above the rest!

22 Submitted by on Tue, 29 July 2014, 02:00
These Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake foam hedge clippers erm.. I mean “scissors” were sold at WWF live events in the early 1990’s. The scissors even let you move the blades together! These were the perfect gift for the young aspiring barbers (or gardeners?) in the WWF audience! The image used above is courtesy of RadWrestling.com’s Foam Finger section (check out all the Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: The Leprechaun: Origins trailer staring Hornswoggle is here! Lucky us!

36 Submitted by on Sat, 26 July 2014, 15:00
UPDATE: Here’s the full trailer for Leprechaun: Origins. I love the original Leprechaun series which is (almost) always highly entertaining thanks to the very talented Warwick Davis. This movie just looks terrible. Not scary, not funny, not worth seeing. When the acting in the trailer (you know, the lines they picked to best represent the movie!) are so bad that Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Androgynous Marty Jannetty squirt head toy

16 Submitted by on Sat, 26 July 2014, 02:00
  In the late 80’s the WWF released a line of Squirt Head water toys including Marty Jannetty from The Rockers. Is it me, or does Marty look a little (well, a lot) feminine here? I mean, between the soft facial features, the shaped eyebrows, the long hair, and the pink lipstick (!!!) he’s inexplicably wearing, this is one weird Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Who (not him) is that masked wrestler? He looks familiar…

11 Submitted by on Fri, 25 July 2014, 02:00
No, it’s not Jim Neidhart (despite the similarities). It’s the terrifying masked heel Pooh The Punisher!  I found this Pooh The Punisher bean bag toy (okay, so that’s just the name I gave his gimmick) and could only come to one obvious conclusion… He must be the founding member of the Pooh World Order. Hey, all that honey isn’t going to pay Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Mad Magazine’s WWF Magazine cover parody from 1987 manages to predict the WWF future correctly!

21 Submitted by on Thu, 24 July 2014, 02:00
Straight from Doug Gilford’s Mad Cover Site here is the back cover to Mad Magazine Issue #272 from July of 1987 featuring Harold “The Killer Accountant”. That’s a full four years before Mike Rotunda came into the WWF with the very similar I.R.S “evil Taxman” gimmick! Do you suppose someone in WWF Creative was a Mad Magazine fan in the late Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: This Barry Horowitz trading card is a true collectable!

14 Submitted by on Wed, 23 July 2014, 02:00
From the 1990 Classic WWF trading card series comes this Barry Horowitz card. Remember, this was a full 5 years before he actually got a push from beating Skip. You Crappers know how much I love Barry (we’ve even featured his t-shirt in a past Someone Bought This!), but man; if I had gotten this card from some kid in Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: “Free For All”? Well, you get what you pay for…

12 Submitted by on Mon, 21 July 2014, 02:00
In the mid-90’s, the WWF would air a free match on the Pay-Per-View channel before a Pay-Per-View would start, to entice you to buy the event. They called these free matches “Free For All”. Get it? ‘Cause they were free… for all! What they often were not, were very good matches. This VHS tape put out by Coliseum Home Video Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: His Highness King Duggan immortalized on the cover of WWF Magazine

20 Submitted by on Sat, 19 July 2014, 02:00
On May 13th, 1989 “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan defeated Haku (who would no longer come with crown) to become the true King of the WWF! WWF Magazine celebrated this a few months later by putting Good King Duggan on the cover of the September 1989 issue! As Mr. B. Natural would say; “He’s a Happy King!”. He looks like the kind Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: The stupid cover of the Top 50 WCW Incidents DVD/Blu-Ray.

  Bryan over at The WCW Worldwide Blog had a pretty funny comment about the cover of the upcoming “OMG! The Top 50 Incidents In WCW History” DVD/Blu-Ray… Pretty amazing that a release all about the most shocking events that took place in World Championship Wrestling would have two McMahons on the cover. You can view the contents of the DVD/Blu-Ray Continue Reading...

After seeing the Someone Bought This with the Sid Justice pillow case and Virgil shirt, Crapper Jerrold posted a link in the comments section to this eBay auction for a Hasbro error card with Sid Justice packaging, but a Virgil figure.  Yes, it’s Virgil Justice!

Crapper Brian Jacobs writes: Today on a few video game sites I follow, news leaked about a game that was planned and announced in 2012 called WWE Brawl that never came to light.
