Wrestling companies make merchandise. It’s usually pretty bad, but sometimes, it’s terrible. Welcome to The Merch Table.
Every week, @TomBlargh will look at some of the awful merch that someone expects you to buy. Up first: WWE!
Sheamus Youth Wig
“Oh man we can’t sell these Zack Ryder wigs! He’s started using too much conditioner and his hair looks all like Jericho’s did in 2005, it is TERRIBLE.”

Oh my god. Yes. Perfect, no room for improvement.
Sheamus Bleacher Creature
You step into the dank room; a single flickering light bulb hangs from the ceiling, stuttering on and off. You see a figure slowly approach, barely visible in the gloom.
The door shuts behind you. You see a flash of white and orange as the stranger draws closer.
You feel movement, suddenly aware that he’s next to you. A voice whispers in your ear:
Hey, Wrestlemania 29! What a show, right? Definitely in the top 27 Wrestlemanias of all time. As a true blue wrestle-fan, you’ll want to get some keepsakes of this monumental event, yeah? OF COURSE YOU DO. Come on down, and get your…
