Crackpot Theory Time:

Maybe they design the shirts in such a way that, excited from being at a live event, fans will buy a shirt. They will then get home and realize it would be embarrassing to wear in public, and then give the shirt away to a kid or something. Then six months later, WWE comes back around, repeat cycle.

The worst WWF t-shirts have to be those old Shawn Michaels shirts that were cherry red and had a picture of HBK standing in front of a giant heart. Good lord, what child wouldn't be beaten for wearing such a garment?

I'd love to see someone wearing the APA's 'Always Pounding Ass' shirt.

I have three shirts
DeadMan Inc.
Cactus Jack 'Wanted'
ECW with an x-ray of (Sabu's?) busted jaw on the back

I probably shouldn't wear them out because I think it is strange to see other people wearing wrestling shirts, but for some reason I still find myself going out in them from time to time.


EDIT:

That's actually not as crackpot as it might sound. It's a lot easier to drop 25-30 bucks on a shirt when you are living in the thrill of the moment than it is to pay 10 for the same shirt on the Wal-Mart bargain shelf when you are completely sober.

Yes. wwe shirts are embarassing i wrote a thread about this about 2 months ago i think. Saying they will be a lot better if they take the writing off the back. Only own one shirt the Angle Submit shirt which i never wear outdoors.

You know i think i just thought of a perfect christmas present for my gay friend always pounding ass why didn't i think of that before

I think I own 4 nWo T-shirts: original black/white (WCW era, baby!), Wolfpac, tie-dyed Wolfpac, and my first...black/white w/ glow-in-the-dark edging.

I'll still wear the black/white ones under my leather jacket sometimes while on my motorcycle...but then again, I used to have nWo decals on the seat, too.

Never did get around to putting the nWo car flag on there...

That Trish Stratuss new one about blowing is one even I'd not wear on my little island for fear of anything, let alone on the mainland. The Big Show one could be ironic and I own that shirt and have worn it, but only under a sweater.

I love the new Eddie Scarface stylee one, i'll get that and be proud to wear it. I want a new Y2J one the white one and I still have the 3:16 shirt I wear alot.

But WWE needs new writers of the t-shirt slogans, where is the inspiration these days for good ones. They need to be iconic or ironic and most are not either one.

I always liked the Black Sting shirt with the white scorpion on the front. It ranks up there with the Austin 3:16 and NWO ones IMO

I have a whole ASSORTMENT of crappy wrestling T-shirts, some of which I wouldn't even wear to bed:

- The Honky Tonk Man 'Thank You, You've Been A Beautiful Audience' one, which has a cartoon of HTM in concert and all the fans holding their ears and groaning. Which kind of reminds me of The Simpsons episode where Lisa asks: "Why would they come to our concert just to boo us?". But a pretty awful shirt nonetheless.

- Nasty Boys muscle T, with the sleeves kind of shredded and uneven, perfect for important job interviews and other business functions.

- A baby blue shirt with the logo 'Hulkasized' written across it. I can't remember that ever being used, other than on this particular item of clothing. And yes, it was an actual WWF shirt.

- A white Ric Flair T from early 1990. In theory, wouldn't be so bad, but the cartoon image of Flair looks a LOT more like Terry Taylor than Flair.

- From around the same time (WCW only came to Toronto twice that year from what I remember), a black Road Warriors T-Shirt that again, has crudely drawn cartoons of Hawk and Animal carrying a crudely drawn wrecking ball. (On a similar note, I remember my brother bought a shirt from that card that read Sting: Invasion, and showed a cartoon Sting fighting four people, all of whom looked kind of like Ole Anderson. Didn't WCW believe in photographers back then?).

- A British Bulldogs T-Shirt that must be almost 20 years old now. Again, not so bad in theory, but it has long red sleeves with a white-and-blue pattern across the chest. The best I could do to describe it is "something you would wear to an Iron Maiden concert when you're 14 years old".

I'll try to find some pictures of these gems online...

If you mean the SEXY BEAST t-shirt, at least THAT one you could wear on stage or out and unless there's something on the back of it I haven't noticed, it's only a wrestling tee if you KNOW it's a wrestling tee, if that makes any sense.

I've got three shirts.

1) Kane "Big Freakin' Machine" - Most of the time, people read it out loud, and don't say anything else. I lot of people have told me the back scares them (picture of Kane's mask).

2) Kane "Face Your Fear" - Again, most people read it out loud. Sometimes I get some weird looks, and people are scared of Kane's face on the back of that one.

3) Stone Cold "Stunner Inc." - Came in a package with autographed copy of Austin's biography. A lot of jackasses enjoy walking by and letting me know "YEEAH! STONE COLD RUUUULES!!!" (mocking me, of course). I hate high school.

But overall, I'm happy wearing my shirts. It was nice to come out of the wrestling closet.

I wear my wrestling shirts all the time. But then, I have absolutely no fashion sense -- but even I know better than to consider the "Chicks Dig It Big" T. The only one I'm embarrassed to wear is an old Undertaker "Unholier Than Thou" shirt from the Ministry of Darkness days (didn't buy it, was given it for Christmas by a well-meaning relative). And the Angle "SUBMiT" shirt has gotten me some interesting reactions at parties...

The only wrestling shirt I own is this CM Punk shirt. I have no problem wearing it in public, since most of the time people will only see the front and think I'm an asshole straight-edger. =)

And see, AGAIN, it's a shirt that if you don't know what the ROH means on top, no one who wasn't a fan would know it's a wrestling shirt.

The only two (2) wrestling shirts I ever bought were the Outsiders shirt that simply said "Outsiders" in red across the chest and had an nWo logo on the sleeve, which was easy to pass off, and an ECW "Experience the Difference" shirt, which was not, and after I wore it a few times, I gave up on that.

In regard to the original question: very much so. I think during the boom it was easier because you could wear the shirt and if someone got it, they'd either tell you that the person(s) "sucked" or "were awesome." I don't know what you'd get now that it isn't cool at all.

You wouldn't wear the "I AM BETTER THAN YOU" shirt as a stage shirt, Scott?

The only way the wrestling shirt might work to your benefit is if you were incredibly buff and then chicks might think you WERE a wrestler.

Nah. I'm not straight edge so I'd probably feel like I was insulting the culture or something. Plus I don't really LIKE that shirt very much, as I find it poorly-designed (no offense, anyone who has that shirt).

Do you suppose they put all that extraneous stuff on there to help curtail bootleggers? It would probably take more effort to reproduce intricate designs and logos than just printing up a phrase on the front.

I wish it were possible to buy t-shirts that didn't have ANY writing on them at all, though.
