Great show so far!


I remember the big merchandise boom of 1998 and those god-awful T-shirts. I remember going into an Ames or a Wal-Mart and seeing the "real" NWO Wolfpack T-shirt, then turning it around and realizing it had a giant Kevin Nash face on the back with "too sweet" underneath it. My brother found a DX shirt that could almost pass for the real thing. No pictures on it but they did change the font to the point where it almost looked bootleg. I wonder if it was a licensing conflict thing with their own in-house merchandising?


That time period is hard to explain to people who didn't live through it. It was weird suddenly seeing so much wrestling stuff in stores. You go to a toy store now and they have entire walls full of WWE merchandise but there was a time period in the mid 1990's where they didn't have ANY wrestling merchandise in stores. Nothing at all except the magazines and maybe a couple video games. And those magazines weren't at every newsstand. If you were a fan back then, the only way you were buying stuff is if you went to live events or conventions/flea markets.
