Someone Bought This: Overpriced WrestleMania 29 folding chair

WrestleMania 29 folding chair

Kmart has the nerve to sell this WWE WrestleMania 29 folding chair featuring the WrestleMania 29 logo, and The Rock, Brock Lesnar, and John Cena’s faces for $129.99!

Even as a collectable piece, that’s a crazy asking price.

But wait! Right now you can get it for “just” $79.99 if you buy $30 worth of (already overpriced) WWE merchandise at Kmart. What a deal!

“Limited Edition”, huh? Technically every piece of WWE merchandise produced is a limited edition because at some point, they’re going to stop producing it. I’d love to know just how many of these they produced.

It’s a mass-produced item so don’t buy it thinking it’s going to become a valuable collectable in 20 or 30 years.

Meanwhile, let’s see what this comparable non-WWE-themed folding chair is going for on Amazon right now on sale:

Folding Chair

Yeah, that’s what I thought.

I’m sorry, I guess it might make for a neat display piece or memento if you’re going to/have been to the show, but this is a complete and total ripoff unless you plan to buy it to get it signed by one or more of the wrestlers featured on it, so you can re-sell it for a profit.

    I hope Michael Cole gagged on bile while saying that this was “cool” on last week’s Raw.

    I cracked up when Cole said you can enjoy watching Wrestlemania in that chair. I’m watching Wrestlemania 29 sitting in a folding chair in my own living room for four hours? And the chair costs more than the PPV? I don’t think so.

    I was thinking the same thing during Raw last night. What a rip off. This is one of the most hilarious “Someone Bought This” columns I’ve seen! A classic!

    Isn’t the point of having a “WrestleMania” collectible chair is because it … you know, was actually FROM Wrestlemania?

    Seriously, I thought the idea was that they sell/auction off chairs that were actually in the arena while Wrestlemania was taking place … this is just a chair with the logo painted on it! Seriously, who’s gonna fall for that?!
