Let’s be honest. Wrestling is weird. This a feature that highlights the pictures, videos, tweets and moments from the wrestling world that feels too weird to be true.
This week’s awkward moment? Apparent independent wrestler Jason Speed‘s Craigslist ad looking for a valet. Quite the charmer. Ladies, if you can keep your clothes on long enough to respond, here’s the link: CreepsList

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 this week: ADVENTURES ON INDY ISLAND.

SO LOOK: Go to indy shows, pay for indy iPPVs and buy indy shirts (either direct from the wrestlers themselves or from somewhere like prowrestlingtees.com and NO I AM NOT GETTING PAID FOR THIS BUT MAYBE THEY’LL SEND ME A FREE YOUNG BUCKS SUPER MARIO PILLOWCASE HINT HINT).

- Wear your #HEEL shirt under the hoodie you saw CM Punk wearing on Raw, despite the fact that you’re not entirely sure who this ‘Gracie Jiu Jitsu’ person is.
- Do your best to start a Chris Benoit chant because EDGY!!!!
- Be the proud owner of a luxurious neckbeard.
These might be some unfair assumptions but man, I’m not the one in the #HEEL shirt. Continue reading
