It’s a WCW pillow case! Okay, we’ve got Buff Bagwell, Sting, Bill Goldberg, Macho Man Randy Savage, and… uh… Who’s that last guy supposed to be? Diamond Dallas Page? Did the person who drew that ever see DDP? “Ooooh Yeah!”? Did Randy Savage pay the artist to stick his catchphrase haphazardly in the middle there?...

Look, it’s a Test figure from the 90’s! And you can buy it for only $9.99! I don’t know why, but I’m highly amused by the simple fact that a Test figure exists. I feel so bad for any kid who got this as a birthday or Christmas gift. They felt the bittersweet sting of getting a wrestling figure… but Continue Reading...

This is “Wrestling World”- one in a long line of wrestling magazines that used unofficial photos of wrestlers. Their photographer just happened to snap a picture of Bret Hart holding a pen and paper and needed an eye-catching headline to go with it. So what headline did they come up with? “Bret Hart Plans His Next Title Reign”. “Plans”?! What kind of Continue Reading...

This is the cover of the October 1995 issue of WWF Magazine. Look! Apparently Bret Hart is “Sharpshooting Into Cyberspace”! Wow! He sure is hip and modern and cool to be using a computer and the internet! Back when this magazine came out, they charged you by the hour to use AOL. Talk about getting screwed! To be fair, the Continue Reading...

Crapper Paul S. writes: So back during the late 90s/early 00s TSN would air RAW on tape delay and occasionally edit out some of the more violent or racier moments. So looking to make a quick buck the WWF released a “Banned in Canada” VHS tape featuring a whopping 2015 35 minutes of uncensored footage of Steve Austin swearing, DX Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Early 90’s WCW stickers might blind you

1 Submitted by on Fri, 19 November 2021, 02:00
Today we have some WCW vinyl stickers! Wow, look at those uh… unique blindingly bright, colorful backgrounds (hello early 90’s!) and artwork that only vaguely resembles the wrestler it’s supposed to be representing. How hard would it have been to just put some actual pictures of the wrestlers on the stickers? Who decided to put ugly artwork on these instead?!...
