...and they're all bad. (poll.wwe.com)

Though if I *had* to choose, it comes down to either

(image removed)

or

(image removed)

1) Eugene's name shouldn't be on the shirt, period.
2) Wasn't "What'sYourNameWhereYouFrom?" a one-time thing?
3) "Inspiration for a New Generation??" The hell?

I vote for the blue Eugene shirt. It's corny.

However...I won't buy any of them. I havent seen a good WWE shirt worth buying in ages.

The first shirt would be my choice if the back art were on the front.

Yes, I agree completely.

As for not putting Eugene's name on it? It's a Eugene shirt, putting Eugene's name makes sense. If you don't want to buy a shirt with Eugene's name on it that's fine, but you shouldn't say it shouldn't have Eugene on it, when it's Eugene shirt!
I don't go to the store and ask for a Mets shirt and then tell them "hey, I don't want one with the Mets name on it"

But yeah, I don't know where in the world the Inspirtaion for a New Generation came from. Not only is this not a gimmick or storyline they've used, but it's also not true, and would be awfully scary if it were true.

WWE.com does have an "I don't like any of these" option in the poll. I can't imagine how drunk and/or stoned I'd have to be to wear one of those outside of a WWE arena (or even in a WWE arena, for that matter).

And you thought those were good, check out these from WWE Shop.

And just to show how much better (at least i think) third party shirts are, here is a official WWE HBK shirt for $25-

Carlito's shirt isn't bad....it looks like normal beachwear, as opposed to a wrestling shirt.

Even still, the only wrestling shirt I've ever owned is the Mankind smiley face, and I don't think I'll be adding to that anytime soon.

What's with this turn toward Urban Outfitters/ vintage-y/ circa 2002 Brooklyn hipster look?

Those look like mockups of the kind of shirts that were sort of popular in the seventies, made a thriftstore comeback and now are being mass produced.

Also, all the designs are shitty.

Who would wear a Mets shirt anyway? :-)

The coolest shirts are the ones that give no clue whatsoever as to what they're promoting. I wouldn't wear a Eugene shirt with Eugene's name on it because either a) "it's obviously a wrestling shirt" or b) I don't want to explain who Eugene is to those who don't know.

It sure does... and I don't know about you, but wouldn't the use of "What's your name? Where you from?" seem to indicate that they're at least thinking about letting Eugene actually keep the medal? Hmmm...

In general people want the shirt their favorite celebrity wears, not the shirt that does the best job promoting their favorite celebrity. Nobody buys the shirt with Superman's picture on it, they want the one with the big "S" on it. People wear Mets shirts that say "Mets" on them because...that's what the Mets wear when they're on the field. The message people want to send is not "I really like so-and-so," it's "I'm just as cool as so-and-so, because we have the same cool shirt." That's why people buy shirts that say "Austin 3:16" and "nWo" and "The Champ is Here," and don't buy Wrestlemania 21 shirts that nobody but jobbers wear backstage.

Of course, in Eugene's case, even if WWE sold a shirt like he might wear, it would have his name on it anyway because Eugene has his name written on all his clothes. But since Eugene is a dumbass, that just kinda goes to show my point.

I like the back of shirt one, only because I thought that bit was simple yet hilarious. If anyone has the sound clip of that segment, please send it to me (themikesays@gmail.com).

Otheriwse the second shirt owns it. I, however, will never own EITHER shirt.

You get David Ortiz to model this, and everybody in Red Sox Nation'll put money in Vince's pocket.

Shouldn't it be "inspiration for the New Generation"? (ducks)

Oh, the poll's down. So here's the first choice:

I'm getting a weird Gallagher vibe from this photo of Eugene on this t-shirt.

I'd wear that Matt Hardy shirt if WWE didn't insist on putting stupid shit on the back of every shirt they make.
