Someone Bought This: Shawn Michaels zebra stripe hat

Shawn Michaels zebra stripe heart logo hat

I found this Shawn Michaels hat from around 1995 on eBay complete Shawn’s name in a heart on the front, and (shall we say) distinctive Zebra stripes on top!

I ask you Crappers (as I so often do)…

Who is going to buy this?!

Most men know they’d look stupid, and… less than masculine in it.

Most women wouldn’t wear it because it’s ugly and would clash with pretty much anything they’re wearing.

That leaves 13 year old girls who love Shawn (’cause OOOOO HE’S SOOOO CUTE YOU GUYS! SQUEE!!!!!) and have no shame or fashion sense.

    I want to know if any guys actually bought the heart-shaped sunglasses.

      I seem to recall some kids (boys) wearing them in the mid-90’s in WWE crowds, yeah (we’ll get to those later, trust me). 🙂

    A guy friend of mine found the sunglasses in storage at his parents’ house and gave them to me.

    I used to see a lot of teen early 20’s men in the crowds with the whole ensemble of this hat, the sunglasses, a shawn t shirt and those clip on dangly earrings. Even as a 10 year old with little to no fashion sense I always thought it looked odd. Man mid 90s WWF merchandise SUCKED!

    Okay, I must be a minority, but I would so buy that! Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t dare wear it outdoors, but I’d totally rock it around the house!

    Shawn Michael’s gimmick did sort of Morph into a male stripper. I mean, it wasn’t like that in 1992. But it kind of evolved into that. Gross.

    Hbk’s main crossover appeal was the butch gay leather side of the Audience right?

    I mean between this and having a big leather biker boyfreind with fringe’s all over????

    err did i say boyfreind i meant bodyguard… Snap Crapple Quad!!!!!

    This needs to be sold with his straw cowboy hat.

    Is it bad that I would have bought this just as a collectible?

    I see potential for a great It Came From YouTube segment from this.

    Firstly, someone has to actually buy the hat.

    Then they need to go out into the unsuspecting public and try and place this hat on as many people as possible and tape their reactions. The hook would be feigning ignorance about having any knowledge of the hat (ie. Shawn Michaels, WWF). As someone already pointed out in the comments, you could say it belonged to one of the Village People.

    I don’t have a title for this unnamed potential YouTube sensation but I figure the idea should give someone enough convincing that this would be worth trying.

    Bonus points if someone tried to incorporate the heart shaped sun glasses into the shtick but that might be, dare I say a bit overkill.

    My brother is the someone who bought this. I wish he still had it.
