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

Someone Bought This: A very timely and topical Earl Hebner shirt from TNA

20 Submitted by on Mon, 30 June 2014, 02:00
I’m not going to rehash The Montreal Screwjob from the 1997 Survivor Series here, Crappers. You know the story by now. You also know that Earl Hebner was the referee who called for the timekeeper to ring the bell during the “screwing” as instructed by Vince McMahon. That happened in November of 1997. As of this writing it is now the Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Park, Park & Park rally towel- it should be against the law not to own one!

16 Submitted by on Sun, 29 June 2014, 02:00
 Show your support for TNA’s most esteemed Attorney (and all around good guy) Joseph Park with this “Park, Park & Park” Rally Towel.  The Trolla Corporation (check them out on Twitter and Facebook) wouldn’t trust anyone else to defend them against all those pesky pending lawsuits that seem to crop up so often against their company…...

Someone Bought This: TNA Six Sided Ring play set

11 Submitted by on Thu, 26 June 2014, 15:00
TNA is bringing back the Six Sided Ring because they’re desperate to re-live the glory days of the promotion and don’t care about the wrestlers’ safety the fans demanded it! In celebration of that, here’s the Six Sided ring play set for your figures. Does not come with newly-crippled and angry wrestling figures. I bet the ropes in this toy ring Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: West Texas Rednecks Rap Is Crap World Tour ’99 shirt

8 Submitted by on Thu, 26 June 2014, 15:00
  I found this West Texas Rednecks Rap Is Crap ’99 World Tour Shirt on eBay.  Yes, wrestling’s most awesome country music group featuring the late, great Curt Hennig did get their own shirt! (I can’t believe WCW booked these guys as heels, and the No Limit Solider dorks with Mr. HOOTIE-HOO Master P. as faces. What a typical WCW Continue Reading...

  From loyal Crapper Romero Superstar: “Baby Stone Cold Steve Austin Porcelin Doll for the bargain price of $110. Endorsed by the World Wrestling Federation, “Satisfaction guaranteed”. I am not satisfied, I hate this doll.” RD: You know the saddest part? I actually have readers that HAVE this thing, and ADMIT to having it. You know, if you just have Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Hulk Hogan Vs. The Incredible Hulk in an epic battle of The Hulks!

7 Submitted by on Thu, 26 June 2014, 02:00
Crapper Paul S. writes: Up until 2005 Marvel Comics owned the name “Hulk Hogan” and whatever wrestling promotion the Hulkster was working for would have to pay a licensing fee to Marvel. In 1988 Marvel had a little fun at Hogan’s expense. In a short story in Marvel Comics Presents #45 Hogan declared himself to be the “The One, The Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: WCW Nitro Girls Swimsuit calendar special manages to somehow be awful

8 Submitted by on Tue, 24 June 2014, 02:00
Early in 1999 WCW aired a Pay-Per-View called “The WCW Nitro Girls Swimsuit Calendar Special” (rolls right off the tongue, does’t it?). That seems like a pretty good deal, right? You pay $9.99 or whatever to see the Nitro Girls frolic about in bikinis for 90 minutes. Well, according to RD Reynolds’ induction, the thing is amply terrible. Yes, leave it to WCW Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: TNA Pigeon Army shirt

17 Submitted by on Mon, 23 June 2014, 14:04
Hey, remember that “Let The Pigeons Loose” shirt that I put up on the site which mysteriously disappeared from ShopTNA.com a day or two later? Well, TNA has now replaced it with something even worse- a Pigeon Army shirt. That design looks kind of, sort of vaguely familiar, doesn’t it? Hmm… Maybe it’s just me. Anyway, the only person who I Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Learn everything you wanted to know about Cougar Jay on this trading card!

13 Submitted by on Mon, 23 June 2014, 02:00
Crapper Douglas Corti writes: Here’s Cougar Jay, 1988’s biggest Charlene Tilton-manic. Douglas sent in a Trent Knight trading card from this series before. Hey, Cougar Jay’s favorite movie is Robocop! He must’ve been thrilled when this went down! He likes theatrical lighting, black cherry ice cream, and Hank Williams Jr.? Got to give him points for having a diverse set of Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: A ripoff rips off something and rips off something else in the process!

5 Submitted by on Sat, 21 June 2014, 00:12
I found this Power Man thing (is it a towel? A flag? A banner?) on the awesome Knockoffs And Bootlegs Tumblr. Oh sure, some might say it’s just a lousy Spider-Man knockoff, but we know better, Crappers! With that banana yellow costume, it’s obviously really a knockoff of WCW’s crime-fighting, web-slinging do-gooder superhero Arachnaman! You may know him better as mild-mannered Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Ric Flair autographed South Carolina lottery t-shirt and voided lottery tickets

If you poke around Ric Flair’s official website, you’ll see he has an online store where you can buy all kinds of Ric Flair stuff like a $30,000 customized robe (!), and also this t-shirt promoting Ric Flair South Carolina lottery tickets!  And look, you can get it autographed for an additional $30!  But wait! There’s more! You can also buy Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Chyna’s book bloated full of bitterness and bitching

20 Submitted by on Tue, 17 June 2014, 02:00
I know R.D already featured Chyna’s autobiography “If They Only Knew” as an induction years ago on the old site (the induction is well worth reading!) but I just had to bring it up again. Think about this for a minute… Somebody decided to let Chyna write a book. May I ask why? It’s selling new for under $3, and used for Continue Reading...

  This is the epic, timeless, and long-overdue “Tribute To Virgil” issue of WWF Magazine from August of 1993. It was a magical time when Virgilmania was sweeping the world over like some kind of gigantic broom! People just could not get enough of Wrestling Superstar(™) Virgil.
