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

Someone Bought This: Sable Beanie Bear with handprint boobies!

5 Submitted by on Sat, 06 June 2015, 02:00
  At Fully Loaded 1998, Sable participated in a Bikini contest against Jacqueline hosted by (who else?) Jerry Lawler and judged by the audience of horny men. Her “Bikini” consisted of painted-on hands… Besides Sable’s boobs, do you know what else was popular in the late 90’s? Beanie Babies! Unlike Sable’s boobs, Beanie Babies were mostly popular with kids, and Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Eat, drink, and show your Chyna fandom all at the same time

These are a pair of Chyna “collectables”- a plate, and a mug. I believe the plate was made and sold by The Franklin Mint kind of like those Gone With The Wind plates that they sell as being something that will increase in value, but really it’s just a mass-produced piece of crap with zero collectable value. Ironically, there’s just Continue Reading...

it Came From YouTube: Goldberg and Meng barter over WCW Motion Cards from Little Caesars Pizza

38 Submitted by on Sun, 31 May 2015, 02:00
I present to you this commercial from the late-90’s that aired on WCW Nitro constantly. It features Goldberg and Meng who decide to stop fighting right in the middle of a heated battle, and enjoy some delicious (and by “delicious” I mean “mediocre, but cheap”) Little Caesars pizzas magically set before them by… oh I dunno, let’s just say The Great Gazoo, Before they Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Samoa Joe’s parents are so proud of their boy!

6 Submitted by on Fri, 29 May 2015, 02:00
Crapper Paul S. writes: Good Idea: Putting Samoa Joe on the cover of your wrestling magazine… Bad Idea: Portraying him as a child getting a report card from his parents which is completely contrary to his bad-ass gimmick. Man, PWI covers are usually pretty good. Simple, but good. This looks like something TNA would put on the cover of an Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: WCW Tuff Talkin’ wrestlers are kind of strange

6 Submitted by on Fri, 22 May 2015, 02:00
Crapper Paul S. writes: Toy Biz’s WCW Toys in the final years of the company tended to be more impressive than the WWF toys of the time, but something about these “Tuff Talkin’ Wrestlers” figures seems off. Perhaps it’s the creepy way their mouths move. Also DDP’s figure looks like they made an Enzo Amore toy 15 years too early. Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: WWF Fruit Juice carton with Hulk Hogan action shot!

14 Submitted by on Thu, 21 May 2015, 02:00
Check out this vintage WWF Fruit Juice drink carton from 1991.  “10% Real Fruit Juice”? So what’s the other 90% of it, then?! Hmm… Kudos to the people who made this stuff for not using artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives, I suppose. Ooo, there’s an Action Cut-Out on the back? I can’t wait to see what it is! Let’s check Continue Reading...

WCW, Merchandise Catalog 1999 First things first: I know that merchandise is generally the realm of Someone Bought This!, but today’s write up is a bit more extensive than what we generally cover there.  Besides, that particular column actually originated thanks to large inductions wherein I would look at magazine inserts and catalogs such as this, so consider this a blast from Continue Reading...

Who doesn’t want to listen to Hulk Hogan talk about his favorite subject for two hours? Wow!!! And check out the Julio Iglesias, Kool & The Gang, and Phil Collins tapes!

Someone Bought This: Judy and Buff Bagwell airbrushed shirt

Bryan from the WCW Worldwide Blog posted this picture of Judy Bagwell coming out at Bash At The Beach 1999 in celebration of Mother’s Day I love that she’s wearing a customized airbrushed shirt of her and her son Marcus Alexander Bagwell (she’d never call her boy Buff Bagwell!) with her wearing the top hat. It looks like something she had Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Go to a WWF house show and you gotta buy a WWF Program!

14 Submitted by on Mon, 04 May 2015, 23:45
I found this old WWF Program on eBay (Steve Lombardi and Barry Horowitz on the same card?! Somebody pinch me!) and it reminded me of going to so many house shows. Picture it- Sicily, Italy. 1927… (Oh wait, wrong flashback. Sorry!) Anyway… It’s the late-80’s and the WWF is coming to your town! “BOY, OH BOY!” as Nathaniel would say. You pay $30 Continue Reading...
