WWF Tatanka shirt 90's

For all I know, those red symbols might have some kind of deep Native American meaning…

but their shape combined with the turquoise background make them really look like one-eyed fish to me.

    Still not the worst. It is funny though.

    A friend of mine who was a huge Tatanka fan (although he was a bigger Aldo Montoya mark) actually had a bootleg version of this very shirt that his father bought for him on a Turkish bazaar or something during a vacation. It looked almost the same, but the print seemed to have less colors and the image was alot more grainy. It seemed to be a cheap print as if it had been ironed on by the bootlegger (it probably was), for the image also had a square black “background” around it.
    However, the text wasn’t the same either. Instead of “TATANKA” it said “TOTONKA”, instead of “World Wrestling Federation” it said “World Wide Fikding” (the logo above it was also slightly different and missed the “divider line” between the two Ws). It even had the trademark notice on the bottom of the image, but instead of “Titan Sports” it said something like “Titten Spor” (if I remember correctly).
    Sadly, my friend doesn’t have the shirt anymore, as his mother threw it away many years ago after the picture had peeled off.
    Still, seeing the above shirt brought back memories and how much we laughed at him for having a fake shirt when we were kids and him stubbornly claiming it was the real thing, coming up with outlandish explanations that changed every time he wore the shirt on why it was written differently. Thinking back, we were probably way too hard on him, and he loved that shirt so much.
