Wrestling companies make merchandise. It’s usually pretty bad, but sometimes, it’s terrible. Welcome to The Merch Table.
Every so often, @TomBlargh will look at some of the awful merch that someone expects you to buy. Up this time: PWTees Podcast Shirts Special.
Pro Wrestling Tees is a cool concept for wrestlers to sell shirts to fans, but one thing I wasn’t aware of until recently is the Podcast and YouTube Shows section. I was kind of amazed at the number of shows who were selling stuff there, so I decided to do some investigative reporting and deduce:
1) What kind of shirts are these guys selling anyway?
2) Is anyone actually buying them?
3) Should Wrestling On Earth jump on board the PWTees train and start making megabuck$$$?
All very important questions, I’m sure you’ll agree. So, without further ado, LET’S GET STARTED.
DaShawn’s 2 Cents
Oh DaShawn. If you’re unfamiliar with DaShawn, he’s the fella responsible for this supreme slice of awkwardness featuring Joey Ryan, Brian Kendrick and Wrestling On Earth’s number one sweetheart, Paul London:
Yeah, it’s… it’s pretty rough stuff. Does DaShawn have t-shirts? OF COURSE HE DOES! Let’s check them out.
Of course, the classic DaShawn’s 2 Cents logo. The recognised symbol of excellence in sports entertainment podcasting.
Oh, an ECW parody shirt! That’s always fun and original. Do you think we’ll see any more parody shirts from other podcasts? God, I hope so!
I, uh… I don’t know what’s going on here. DaShawn, can you explain?
Fair enough then.
Is anyone actually buying them?
I went straight to the source and asked DaShawn on Twitter. Here’s his response:
ANSWER: Yeah, alright mate, whatever you say.
