In 1993 the WWF re-united Hulk Hogan and Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake as a team and turned Jimmy Hart face to manage them.

The team was known as The Mega-Maniacs and the only thing of note they did was feud with Money Inc.

It’s really just a plastic cone that doesn’t so much amplify your voice as make it echo a little like you’re shouting inside a cave.

I guess it’s for kids who really, really wanted to be like Jimmy Hart.

I seem to recall the WWF asking a whopping $19.99 or something like that for this cheap, plastic piece of junk.

And yes, of course I had one.

What was the flimsiest, cheapest piece of wrestling merchandise you ever owned? Comment below and let us know!

    I had a Heidenreich bracelet that read “Will You Be My Friend?” The thing was snap-on, but tended to not stay together. I think I lost it years ago.

    A bit surprising WWE didn’t even produce some “I paid money to watch the Mega-Maniacs at Wrestlemania IX and all I got was this lousy t-shirt” merchandise.

    the cheapest merch I found was a old WCW action figure from 1990 at a resale shop for $5.

      Wow, what a ripoff.

        When I was a kid, I bought four of those WCW action figures (Sting, Ric Flair, Lex Luger, and I don’t remember the fourth one). I only bought them because the WWF figures didn’t come with title belts, but the WCW figures did. I used the four belts from the WCW figures as the WWF titles at the time.

        The only time I ever used the WCW action figures was when I staged a WCW invasion of WWF, wherein the WWF action figures beat the crap out of the WCW action figures and sent them packing! I booked WrestleCrap in my bedroom way before Vince booked it for the masses!

    When I was a kid in ’92 or ’93, I went to a WWF house show and bought a Razor Ramon necklace which was a fake gold chain with a fake gold razor blade on it that had the Razor Ramon logo. The Razor Ramon logo was just some really cheap black decal that WWF put on the razor blade, and, before I even got home, the majority of it had worn off already. Funny enough, my mom found it a few years ago when she was cleaning our some of my stuff at her house. She had no clue what it was and called me to ask me about it. I’m just really glad that I can’t remember what I paid for it! I bet it was like $15-$20 for that piece of crap!

    $20 for a piece of plastic. Wow.
