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

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



or



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).

Yeah, I blatantly just checked and sent the "I dont like any of these" option without thinking twice.

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-


And here is a HBK shirt (''Still breaking hearts'' and a pic of Michaels doing his pose) courtesy of wrestlingsuperstore.com for $20


I own this and i think its awesome.

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.



Matt Tracker: Great comix this week. But why not use the Trojan corner to feature the adventures Al Wilson?
DEAN: Al Wilson rides it bareback, my brother.
Matt Tracker: Waitress, I won't need this omelette after all, thanks.
DEAN: He's too much of gentleman to assume that the lady he is with would have a disease and he's man enough to raise any offspring that should arise. HE IS AL WILSON.

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.



And that's how you narrate a story.

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...

It's good to see that the WWE isn't backing away from Batista or Cena. There's still some questions lingering over a few of the draft moves they either made or didn't make (Jericho being a prime example), but the stage is set for a solid run to Summerslam that may send the indicator down. The longer Triple H stays away is also a plus...

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.

That Matt Hardy shirt ain't half bad.

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

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

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

Those werent really "stores". They were mobile carts in a mall hallway. They had tapes and shirts and action figures. It was a neat idea, but I rather see them have an actual store instead of a cheap looking cart.
