I don't think it's a wonderful selection, but the Sharkboy one certainly stands out.

The trick to making money on wrestling shirts is designing ones that people wouldn't be embarassed about wearing in public. None of those, with the possible exception of the 3LK shirt, fit that bill.

And that would be about 95% of the people that used to attend all the tapings at the Fairgrounds/the Asylum in Nashville.

And I can make fun of them because I'm from here.

the only one I like is the Raven one. The others? Nahhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

And is it just me, or does Abyss's flame shirt look a heck of a lot like WWE's Kane?

They're a bit...rubbish. Like was said, the only two I wouldn't be ashamed to be seen in in public are the 3LK one and the TNA long-sleeved one.

Seems like the company has finally given up and said "yeah, we have a welfare version of Kane on our roster." It's the first reaction any fan has or had when they see him.

I remember seeing an AMW shirt on their site with the words "Sorry about YOUR DAMN LUCK" (emphasis theirs) on the front or back of it. What the Hell does that mean, anyway? What sort of context does it have to the tag team? Maybe they adopted a catch phrase and I missed it, in which case I refer you to the first question.

Lame. Just lame.

The company is bleeding money. Why even bother making shirts? Especially absurd ones like these.

I don't actually think that's true, since every wrestling shirt I've ever seen looked embarrassing, and people still wore them. They all have big ugly block lettering, stupid phrases, wrestlers' faces... and people wear them in public. I think that wrestling fans, especially those who would buy wrestling shirts and wear them, in general probably think those designs are really cool. It's like when I see people wearing hip-hop groups' shirts... these things are incredibly cheesy looking, but I see them on men and women who obviously think they look good.

I don't know how much more money they'd make selling shirts that would appeal to a more fashion-conscious individual; would those people really purchase and wear wrestling t-shirts?

I can vouch for that. I have a friend who is a huge wrestling fan, and I remember once I bought him a couple of t-shirts with Triple H and Stone Cold's face on them, and he wears them in public, often and proudly.

And yes, I like the Shark Boy shirt.

I look for shirts I can wear away from the arenas. Something graphically interesting, somewhat clever and easy on the colors. The Benoit X-ray shirt was a fave, as was the Dean Malenko Eyes of Ice shirt. I immediately fell in love with Eddy's Latino Heat tobasco label shirt, and wear it as I would any t-shirt in public.

Hey, ease off of Abyss. He's quite possibly the coolest cat in wrestling. Meet him in person, then talk to me.

And I'm a little disappointed that the belt-over-the-shoulder NWA-TNA shirts aren't on there. Oddly enough, they're not on TNA's online merchandise offerings, either.

But NWA Midwest's merch site has 'em! (Also available at all ACW-NWA Wisconsin shows...click the link in the sig for showtimes.)

Oh, I'm not saying that there aren't people out there who proudly wear shirts with Hulk Hogan's glistening muscles plastered all over it. I just think that the big sellers are usually ones that look cool enough that they can pass off in society as acceptable shirts without the wrestling stigma. Austin 3:16, nWo, D-Generation X... Those are probably the best selling shirts of the past 10 years or so and all are shirts that could pass as non-wrestling shirts.

It's probably just a 'to each their own' situation. I have no problem wearing my Brian F'N Pillman shirt (from ECW) or my RVD shirt with the dragon on it. However, I wouldn't be caught dead outside of my house wearing a shirt that has Goldberg standing there in his underwear.

Okay, I guess we are talking different levels. I personally would just as soon wear the RVD shirt as wear the AJ Styles shirt, and assumed others were of my same mindset.

The earlier comment knocked his gimmick, not the man. I'm sure he's a great guy. He just has a look and gimmick that's a clear knock-off of the Kane character. It's not his fault, and it was never implied as such.

"...others say my mom sucked 3,000 dicks." (Nag)


If you're looking for something you won't be embarrassed to wear in public, I advise you don't look at wrestling shirts. (Recent WWE efforts notwithstanding, mostly Eddie Guerrero-related.)

Although the logo they use for the TNA merch section in the sidebar menu is BEGGING to get some usage for Jeff Jarrett merchandise. At least it's in that one shirt, but why not something that's just the logo?
