Months ago, I got the following message regarding a Someone Bought This we had done:

“I looked up WWE Valentine plush bearon Google, and it lead me to your website. Then I saw it, the exact bear that my 4yr old daughter lost during hurricane Sandy. She has had that bear since she was an infant. My heart breaks every time she asks for it. Please help.”

This was the bear in question:


Lo and behold, a great man we will call Mr. Tucker HAD the bear, and sent it along to the man requesting it. Was his daughter happy? YOU be the judge!!

This is seriously my favorite thing to ever happen on the site.

Our readers are the best!!!! Thank you!!!!!

Yeah, you know...the WrestleCrap guy. Been here since before day 1, I have. You can hang out with me on Facebook. (I'm on there quite a bit) or follow my exploits on Twitter (I'm on there not quite so often). Thanks, and Keep on Crappin'!

    I don’t have one of those. How about a John Cena Wrestling Buddy?

  2. Mike says:

    I imagine the writer has already seen this, but you could get the sweater itself on Amazon… just need to find the bear. Heartbreaking.. hope he can find it for her.

  3. James S says:

    I hope you find this bear man. I just hope that it isn’t too difficult to find.

  4. Falcdango says:

    Couldn’t find one on Ebay.

    My suggestion is to contact Stephanie on Twitter. I recall someone doing this after their basement was flooded destroying all their WWE Merch, and WWE gave him it back plus more. I’m sure if they have any of these bears left they’d have no issue giving you one given the circumstances. It’s worth a shot.

  5. John Darc says:

    I’d bet if there was someone they could contact at WWE PR, they’d handle this really easily. WWE is making a big push for Sandy Relief.

  6. James S says:

    Yeah I think contacting the WWE directly may be the best way to handle this.

  7. Paul R. from says:

    I feel for her, man. My family lost a lot of stuff because of Hurricane Sandy, including our former residence. I documented some of the damaged and ruined belongings we lost on my site (including hundreds of dollars worth of wrestling and non-wrestling autographed photos), but so much was lost, that I simply couldn’t document everything.

    Anyway, I really hope this little girl gets her bear.

  8. Brian Dwoskin says:

    WOW. I was just making yet another attempt at finding my daughter this bear when I read all the comments and suggestions about it. I appreciate the kind words and suggestions. it really is heartbreaking. out of everything we lost during hurricane sandy, my daughter lost her “dubby”‘ She caled him dubby cause when she was learning to speak she couldnt say WWE, so when she saw the logo she said dubby dubby. her bear just became dubby. Thanks again

    THIS IS AWESOME! *clap-clap clap-clap clap*

  11. "The Big Cheese" Paul Kraft says:

    Pardon me a moment, I seem to have some sand in my eyes… BRB….

  12. Mr. Tucker says:

    Um, well I guess I’m Mr. Tucker from now on. Glad to give her back her Dubby!

  13. John says:

    Now just imagine the joy that would have been brought to the child if it had been a Stephaine McMahon or Dixie Carter figure. And I thought Beefcake was crappy using a pair of scissors I was getting worried thinking that kid was going to get impaled.

  14. RD Reynolds says:

    I seriously tear up when I see this. Thank you, Mr. Tucker!

  15. Down With OPC says:

    This is pretty cool!

  16. Big Jim says:

    I’m not ashamed to say it, this brought a tear to my eye, thank you Mr. Tucker, you’re a wonderful person.

  17. 314 says:

    this was awesome on so many levels, great to see such a kind gesture, and that little girl adored it too…can never see enough stuff like this!

  18. TMS says:

    Mr. Tucker, I tip my hat to you sir. That is awesome. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some dust in my eye.

  19. mary says:

    I would just like to thank u from the bottem of my heart you made my daughter so happy she has her dubby back!!! She has had him by her side since she opened him! Truely forever greatful

  20. ThinkSoJoE says:

    That is seriously the coolest thing ever. Mr. Tucker, hats off to you, sir.

  21. Muta Mark says:

    Daniel Bryan wrestled that bear before.

  22. brian says:

    I would like to thank everybody for the kind words and support. It really means a lot to me and my Family. There is one comment in particular by a man named John that I would like to comment on specifically. John my wife gave birth to another daughter a month ago. I will have you know my wife is hot. Not that I need to explain this to you, but you are the one who chose to judge. I will have you know something else. In the words of the rock. ” IT DOESNT MATTER WHAT YOU THINK”… How about next time you got something negative to say you kindly keep that s*** to yourself

    Respectly of course

    • Endy says:

      I’m glad your daughter got her bear back, but it’s you who needs to apologise for misunderstanding the comment. ‘Beefcake’ is not a reference to your wife (who I agree looks pretty cute), it’s a reference to Ed Leslie aka Brutus ‘The Barber’ Beefcake who would maniacally wave scissors around. This was in the early 90’s so I’d understand you not getting it, but for you and other members of your family to post abuse aimed at something that you mistakenly took as an insult is frankly hypocritical and offensive. I hope your daughters grow up to be better and more patient judges than you are.

  23. Heather says:

    I’d just like to thank Mr. Tucker for giving Dubby to my cousin. Out of all the chaos that Sandy brought, it’s so sweet to know that it only takes a little bear to brighten a four year old’s eyes again! Her mom–my cousin– just gave birth to another daughter less than a month ago. She’s always been a beautiful woman. Can you imagine how she felt reading your post?? So…whoever said something about her being “beefcake”…shame on you. Out of something beautiful you chose to say something mean. My cousin, her husband and their daughter lost their home due to Sandy. They’ve only recently gotten back on their feet and settled in a new place. Please don’t troll and spoil the two beautiful moments–new baby and Dubby’s return–they’ve had in one year. I’m not a wrestling fan, but my cousins are. And I’m so appreciative to this community for banding together to help out one little girl!! To think that this bear was found in less than one year is amazing. Thanks again to Mr. Tucker!!

    • BootyMan says:

      Perhaps as a wrestling fan, I can shed some light on the “Beefcake” comment as you have stated that you are not a wrestling fan.
      Back in the 1980s, there was a character called Brutus ‘The Barber’ Beefcake whose shtick was that he would cut his opponents hair after a match usually with a garden shears.
      Here’s a picture of him, shears and all:
      I believe that the user was making a joke referencing that character rather than the insulting meaning of the word.
      Hope that might clear up some of the negativity but double congratulations to your cousin’s family.
      And thank you, Mr. Tucker!

    • RD Reynolds says:

      Pretty sure it wasn’t meant as offensive. Beefcake was referring to an old wrestler who had giant scissors as part of his persona. We definitely do not mean to offend anyone, especially not a family as nice as yours!

    • Endy says:

      As I already explained in the other comment, ‘beefcake’ is not a reference to the mother. Hopefully the mother knows more about wrestling (or perhaps is just a bit more sensible and less hasty in making judgements) than you and the girl’s father are.

  24. Brian says:

    I had to jog my memory a bit, but i hope John was referencing Brutus the barber beefcake.

    If so you should have said brutus the barber beefcake. My wife doesnt know him and thought that was a reference to her, and rightfully so she was a little upset. Please be more specific

    • RD Reynolds says:

      OH! That makes sense now. Yeah, I didn’t think that he meant anything ill will about it. 🙂

    • Endy says:

      Your wife needs to develop thicker skin, in that case. Why she would even care about what some guy on a forum says about her is beyond me, she’s clearly a looker with a loving family. Even if he’d meant it as an insult, get over it. But he didn’t anyway, so it’s irrelevant.

  25. Dave says:

    Um… if you’ll excuse me for a second… I have something in my cry… um… manly cry thing. Yeah.

  26. Brian says:

    Thanks everyone for assisting me in clearing that up, she woulnt have taken my word for it. RD, you are the man. Thank you, and once again Thank you Mr. Tucker

  27. Big Joe says:

    Who ever you are Mr.Tucker I’d like to buy you a drink or two. You are a good guy…

  28. John Darc says:

    Always cut away from you, and NOT towards your daughter’s face.

  29. Jamie MacKay says:

    This is seriously the greatest thing in Wrestlecrap history. Glad this little girl got her bear back. Long live Wrestlecrap!

  30. TR says:

    that video was amazing…the suspense as the box was being opened…the way she hugged that bear….terrific.

  31. Endy says:

    Hundreds of people died in Hurricane Sandy and many more lost their homes and businesses. Nothing can fix that, but a small sincere gesture such as this really goes a long way to showing people they haven’t been forgotten about. So nice to see how happy she was.
