Someone Bought This: It’s Sting! And he’s neon! And on a clock! #Early90’s!

Bryan over at The WCW Worldwide blog just posted scans of The Spring 1994 WCW Merchandise Catalog! 

Have you ever seen a more totally Early 90’s thing in your entire life?

That thing is so bright and ugly even Stevie Wonder would say “Dude, turn it off!”.

It has more neon than the Vegas strip!

I’d like to think that R.D had this bad boy up in his College dorm room back in the day.

This clock is just the tip of the iceberg! Go check out the rest of the catalog now!

    In honor of Daylight Savings with this clock it would be Fall back and Sting ahead.

  2. John Q Occupier says:

    I’m curious as to why the word “glow” needed inverted commas…

  3. Josh says:

    So is it supposed to be spelled “nuon”, or is that just WCW screwing up as usual?

  4. Geoff says:

    I guess that they wanted to infer that this clock had nothing to do with G.L.O.W. even though it was a Sting clock.

  5. Geoff says:

    Now get up with Sting in the morning and say “WOOOO”

  6. John C says:

    The ad does call it a Nuon Clock so maybe it doesn’t so much “glow” as just mildly shine like a Lite-Brite peg.

    Am I the only one who noticed the price of the Sting leather jacket??? $495?!?!?! Of course I remember these same catalogs charging like $59 for those crappy one hour compilation VHS tapes, too. Being a wrestling fan in the early-mid 90s was an expensive habit.

    • "The Big Cheese" Paul Kraft says:

      LOL! Yeah, the markup on that jacket is kind of crazy. I could see paying about $200 for it though.

    • Thomas says:

      Well, it does say the leather jackets were made to order. It does make me wonder what the jackets would’ve looked like.

  8. 80's Guy says:

    The jacket actually looked awesome, but not for that price tag. Ouch!

    And I, too, would like to know what the “glow” in quotations means. As well as the “Nuon” vs. neon. That has to correlate with the “glow” part, and has to do with the fact that it isn’t exactly neon lighting.

    Off to Google….

  9. 80's Guy says:

    Ok, I believe I’ve got it.

    “Nuon” is actually, from what I can see on similar Ebay listings, pieces of brightly colored plastic that is used to make up the design, and the “glow” is from a light source behind it shining through the plastic to give it the illusion that it’s lighting up, or “glowing”.

    So it’s kind of a poor man’s neon effect.

    Which really makes one wonder how they could charge THAT much for something that is obviously not authentic neon lighting.

    So the guy that mentioned Lite Brite was actually pretty accurate.

    Glad no one made a Crow Sting clock since waking up to that thing would be creepy. 😛

  11. Chris the Bambikiller says:

    So, how much is the 495 bucks for that jacket in 2016 dollars? A thousand? They better had Sting deliver it to your doorstep for that price.
