Someone Bought This: King Of The (ugly) Ring

5 Submitted by on Fri, 27 April 2018, 02:00

I was reading J.W’s Wrestling Memorabilia and Memories blog when I came across this really intersting entry about the 1993 Hasbro King Of The Ring wrestling ring toy.

It’s basically the same thing as the blue toy ring that a lot of you Crappers probably had back in the day, but this time it’s a hideous banana yellow!

How am I supposed to have fun playing with a toy that makes my eyeballs melt from the repulsive color of it?!

Check out that freaky distorted artwork of Bret Hart punching a gigantic Yokozuna out of the ring!

Oh well, at least it does come with giant WWF turnbuckle flag as illustrated.

    We all love the Hasbro series, but that’s despite some strange decisions they made, like tabs on the back of some guys, a flagpole for the ring, and no manager figures!

    I read a Youtube commenter who claims to be related to a Hasbro employee back then, and confirms the blogger’s theory that this was originally a “Hulk Hogan” ring.

    Anyone for mustard wrestling? With a dash or two of ketchup?
