Someone Bought This: WCW / NWO Looney Tunes merchandise

My buddy Bryan over at The WCW Worldwide Blog just put up a great article and photo gallery all about WCW and NWO Looney Tunes merchandise.

I particularly like this WCW Tax “No Turning Back” shirt because as The Death Of WCW book illustrated, once WCW started sliding downhill there really was no turning back!

    A more accurate shirt for WCW at that point should have read No Touring Back, after a garbage show somewhere no one wanted them to do a return.

    WCW Tax? Wasn’t watching it in 1999 enough?

    I think the shirt was an attempt at subtle hypnosis. They wanted to pop this logo up anytime they had a segment that they felt would send viewers back to Raw. Near the end they might as well have had this logo overlaying a picture-in-picture broadcast of Raw just to save people the trouble.

    All of these things are hilariously bad, I’m still shocked over the fact that these were sold in adult sizes.

      Yeah, I mean… I love the classic Looney Tunes but I would never have bought these at the time because I think they’re just stupid.

    Maybe it was meant for space jam 2 starring hulk Hogan?

    A bad era for Taz…this one had to appear on crappy WCW merch, while the other one was forced to add an extra “z” and become a WWF jobber.

    I remember getting some of these as gifts from relatives who found out I was a wrestling fan… probably should have told them I didn’t care for WCW at this point?

    Ah, the 90s. When Looney Tunes characters were slapped on pretty much everything in order to make a buck.

    My personal favorite was the trailer park chic look: Tie-dyed Tweety Bird shirt and brightly colored stirrup pants, both often strained to their limits.

  8. Sean Wilkinson says:

    I’m still waiting for a T-shirt with my cult favorite character, Pepe le Pew, promoting the “New World Odour” faction.

    Either that, or wearing a towel in a crossover with Val Venis as the Wrestling’s Greatest Lovers tag team.
