WWE.com has another poll (poll.wwe.com) asking which Finlay shirt ya'll would like to see.

Option 1 (repository.wwe.com)
Option 2 (repository.wwe.com)
Option 3 (repository.wwe.com)
Option 4 (repository.wwe.com)

Not too sure I like the Notre Dame logo resemblance on #3 and 4, but I like the white shirt because it's different enough. I went with #2. #1 doesn't even have his colors.

Discuss.

They're all winners, but I went with #2 because you could wear it drinking.

But these are all shirts that, barring the emblazoning of a large WWE logo on 'em, you could wear in public.

I never thought in the year 2006 I'd see Finlay merchadise. Man oh man, I love this sport.

I like 2 as well.

They're all pretty good. Strange that they have the "FF" on the back of #1, since they don't call him Fit Finlay anymore. The picture of Finlay and his leprechaun is very Notre-Dame esque, but it makes me laugh for some reason.



In the real world, WWE believes that no matter what our race, religious creed or ethnic background in America, we all share the common bond of being Americans. American-Arabs are a part of the fabric of America, and they should be embraced by all of us.

I liked all of them but if pushedm the one I would wear in public with no problem is #2. In order 2, 4, 3 and 1. But all 4 of these are better than most any other WWE shirts.



Well, that's just drunk talk! Sweet, beautiful drunk talk....

I voted for #2. Best option that doesn't necessarily scream "wrestling" unless you really read it.

Three was a close second though. Four lost me with the "ta" on it, and one was dead last.

An honest question, if you wheel. No offense intended to anyone. I am seriously curious.

Whenever wrestling T-shirts are discussed around here, I always hear the same thing from multiple people: I like the ones that don't look like wrestling T-shirts. Or: Why'd they have to go and ruin a perfect non-wrestling-looking T-shirt by putting a big WWE logo or an obviously wrestling-related catchphrase on the back?

I completely understand how you feel about this, because I too do not want to be seen wearing a wrestling T-shirt in public. However, I've come up with an apparently unusual solution to this problem: I don't buy wrestling T-shirts.

My question to you: Why would someone who's embarrassed to wear a wrestling T-shirt buy one anyway and hope nobody notices? Seems to defeat the purpose of wearing a wrestling T-shirt.



I have nothing witty to put here.

A few reasons that I can see:

1. It's not tacky looking, while shirts with wrestlers' pictures and cheesy sayings are.

2. People like to wear t-shirts that represent something they like. That's why people buy shirts at concerts and such. However, with wrestling being a "dirty little secret" for most people...

3. Wrestling fans will know its a wrestling shirt, but others won't. Keeps the secret safe except to those who also have the same secret.

In any case, I wouldn't ever buy a wrestling t-shirt just because they are too expensive. I can get a t-shirt at Old Navy for like 4 bucks. Though I do buy concert shirts, so maybe that logic isn't so sound.

I just like the idea that Finlay has a shirt coming out. Hopefully that means he'll be around for a while.

That being said, I'd go with option #2.

They're all good, but #2 is the best (the Charmed fan in me recognizes the thing on the back).



This will get added at the end of each post you make, below an horizontal line. This should preferably be kept to a small enough size.

Didn't even notice that the first time I looked at it.


However, the third one kicks like a million kinds of ass.

I kinda like the first one, actually-- with the pub sign motif.

To answer in a nutshell, I like clothing that is aesthetically pleasing to me. Many of WWE's recent shirts have followed a trend of having a quite pleasing front and then a back that I would never want to wear in public. So I end up lamenting that things like the awesome blue Carlito t-shirt with his head as the apple become unwearable due to some ridiculously lame double entendre on the back.

I like the Finlay/Leprechaun logo on # 3 and # 4. I could probably be talked into buying one of those....

I voted for number 3, and I find 3 and 4 way better than 1 and 2. I just don't like the white background for 4, so that's why I picked 3.

I like number two the best, with the first one coming in at a very close second.

I don't think I'd wear either of the other two designs.

I went with number two.

The first one kind of sums up the thing that's been annoying me ever since Finlay showed up on TV. BELFAST IS NOT IN IRELAND! It's in Northern Ireland. Two completely different countries. You tell a Belfaster that he's from the Republic Of Ireland, he'll probably blow your car up. It's like announcing Ric Flair as being from "Charlotte, Carolina".

Well, that would depend on what N. Irelander you're talking to, wouldn't it? From what I remember, Finley is legit from Belfast, and I remember his old gimmick in WCW was that he was a militant Irishman in favor of succession from Britain, hence his feud with Regal.
