Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


February's Wrestle Crate comes with an exclusive, hand-signed item from Finn Balor.


This is include in both Wrestle Crate options, including the £11.99 (+P&P) Wrestle Crate Lite. Sign up today to get yours.


If you use code UKFF10 - you will also get a welcome gift of 3x extra signed items inside your first Wrestle Crate for FREE.







Hi guys.


Wrestle Crate brings their service to the UK and Europe, without needing to pay such high shipping and import fees.


I don't want to give you a sales pitch or bore you with all of the details from the press release. I also appreciate that a mystery box of wrestling loot isn't going to be something that everybody wants to spend their money on, but if you do find yourself buying wrestling tees, DVDs, autographs, figures and other collectables each month then this might be something you'd dig. The purpose of this post is to simply let you know what it is, why we're doing it and answer any questions that anybody may have.


Crates start at just £11.99 with shipping at £5 within the UK. You can read more or sign up at www.WrestleCrate.co.uk


Better yet - as an exclusive bonus for the UKFF faithful, if you enter the promo code UKFF10 at the checkout you'll get three FREE autographs inside your first Crate!


I've posted some further details below if you'd like to read them. If you have any questions, please just give me a shout.


Thanks for reading,


Richard Penaluna

Hey Ralphy.


Absolutely. When you order, once you've picked your Crate type you're asked to select your shirt size.


The only caveat which I'd add is that we cannot absolutely guarantee shirt sizes on the off chance we get a huge influx of orders in one size of tee after we order them. Based on the seven months that we've been doing this in the States, this almost never happens! But I'd rather you knew how that worked :)


If you have any other questions, please just give me a shout. Thank you for checking it out man.

Hi Edgehead.


Thank you for coming to check out our US counterpart. You're right, it's totally a lottery in the sense of the mystery element. For me personally, the charm lies in the unknown element.


The originators of Wrestle Crate strive to deliver both a diverse mix as well good quality content in each box, always ensuring that it's contents value is significantly more than the price of the Crate. We will continue with that ethos but one of our aims is to have our own influence over what goes into the Crates each month. With that in mind, I encourage feedback and suggestions of content you'd like to see more or less of.

Hi Freebird,


The retail price of the Crate's contents does, absolutely. We buy enough to bring the total cost down but if you went and bought the contents of the Crate from Amazon, wrestling promotion's websites, etc you'd definitely pay a lot more.


I'm actually just putting the finishing touches on the first UK-based Crate's content today and I've estimated the RRP of the Standard Crate at £28-£32 and the Ultimate Crate at £54-£59 if you bought one of each item separately. The £5 discrepancy is due to one particular item being a Wrestle Crate exclusive, therefore with no definitive RRP, so I've looked at what companies selling similar things charge.


I hope that this helps. There is three more days to sign up for the November Crate.


Thanks for your interest,

My Wrestlecrate arrived Saturday morning and I'm very happy with the goodies I received.


Daniel Bryan Pop Funko. As a collector I did worry when I saw the box initially but was chuffed when I realised it was a variant.

PCW Who Dares Wins DVD. Card looks pretty cool, a lot of names I'm familiar with and I haven't watched any PCW in a while.

Vertigo Pro Wrestling Chapter 2 Fight DVD. Admittedly haven't heard of the promotion but again a decent looking card.

Mr Anderson and Matt Hardy signed prints. My lad collects signed 8x10s so these are nice little stocking fillers for him

Stone Cold Something Print. Big fan of these prints we get occasionally from Calling Spots.

PCW Badge.

Sasha Banks shirt. This I was very pleased with, very rarely wear wrestling shirts and feared this to be a Calling Spots shirt (which I do own), as Im in love with Sasha this is great, not an obvious wrestling shirt either. Be interesting to know where shirt came from because I don't think it's an official WWE one.


Overall a fantastic little bundle of wrestling goodies, well worth the money and definitely getting the December box. (Not a fan of money being taken from account on 23rd so have to cancel sub and renew week after)


Photo of shirt found online (incidentally with the same Pop Funko)

Hey Krytie.


Thank you very much for taking time to write up your thoughts on the first UK-based Wrestle Crate. We really appreciate the kind words and the support, both of our new venture and of the magazine.


As a fan of the magazine, you may be interested in a Wrestle Crate exclusive in a Crate very shortly.


Regarding the rebill date on the 23rd - if you ever want us to push that back a week to save you the hassle just drop us a line at info@wrestlecrate.co.uk and I'll happily sort that out for you.


Thanks again, my good man,

Looked at the price of the 2 dvds which I think together is £21 inc postage, so may be worth trying a box for £25. If I got a t shirt I did not like then I would just give it to a friend. I would be interested if Japanese and Mexican shirts/ autographs and dvds will ever be included. Brit indys would be quite interesting, there is some good talent out at the moment. However not sure what I would do with toys. Only really collect prints that are signed personally but I would still enjoy them.

Hey WestLondonMist,


Yeah, although it isn't the be all and end all, we do aim to get great value into the Crates. There was at least £55 RRP of content in this month's Crate, including some items that were either 100% exclusive (The Boss shirt, artwork) or limited edition variants of a product (Funko) which are more difficult to find.


I'm not sure how much this counts as Mexican, as he made his name in the US, but our American counterparts (before we joined the team) had Chavo Guerrero Lucha Underground merch in a recent Crate. Throughout 2016 I personally intend to have as many countries represented in both the UK and US based Crates as I can.


Toys and collectibles are polarising, to use a WWE cliche. Personally, I'm not much of a collector. But I know a LOT of people who are. The beauty of the Crate is the mix. I love that people haven't loved one item and been "meh" on the rest. Lots of people have loved lots of different items. Oh and all of the autographs are of course hand-signed and we purchase directly from the talent, not third party autograph distros. When I hand-pick and subsequently buy stock I want to put money into the pockets of wrestlers, good wrestling promoters and trustworthy creative people (artists and suchlike).


If you ever have any questions just hit us up here or on Twitter @@WrestleCrateUK and I'll be happy to help.


Thank you for the interest.

I might have been interested, but I don't buy autographed merchandise, only merchandise that I get autographed myself due to there being so much fake autographed stuff out there.

I am in no way saying you do this, but if I don't personally get the autographs myself, in my mind they may well be fake and I won't buy any product containing them.

I know far too many people who have been ripped of by very good fakes.

Good luck though!

Hey KurruptZhun,


Good feedback, and great to hear another opinion like this as I too am often dubious too so it's good to hear that I am not alone in that.


For what it's worth, we generally only deal with the wrestlers directly. Partly because we want to give back to the people who sacrifice their bodies for a market that we are now trading in but also so that WE can trust that they are legitimate. The only exception to this is when we go through somebody's manager or suchlike. As a rule we never ever deal with autograph traders or online merchants selling autographs. We go to the source.


Although it is perhaps the worst evidence of all time, if you hit me up on Facebook or Twitter I'll happy send you the photo that Reby Sky sent us while Matt Hardy was signing the promo photos for us. I have never posted this online (as it's a pretty boring photo of the back of Matt's head) so I can't dump the URL in here but happy to share.


It may also be worth noting that not every Crate will feature an autograph. Next month's Standard Crate currently (and things do change quickly) looks like it will not have an autograph inside. I can't say the same for the Ultimate Crate though.


As I say, thank you for the constructive feedback and for the best wishes. Just give me a shout if you do have any questions.

Just to add to Krytie's awesome post from a few days back, here is a photo of the first UK-based Ultimate Crate in it's entirety.




Although now sold out, we do have some stock left of a few items which we are giving away in a Facebook competition. If you'd like to enter, and to keep abreast of news and stuff, you can find the competition here.

Hi again Edgehead,


Do you mean more UK content than not UK content or do you mean more UK content than the US-based variant?


I'll answer both; the mix of where the content is from will vary. I said in the opening post that my intention is to have the best British wrestling represented in the UK and US Crates, ensuring that I utilise the popularity of Wrestle Crate to support pro wrestling close to home. With that being said, our first crate featured three UK items and five non-UK items, making it "more " non-UK. If I'm honest, that wasn't an active decision, and something I've only really thought about now.


If you meant more UK content than the US Crates then I'd say yes, although that isn't a hard and fast rule, just what I anticipate. In time there will be UK content in both US and UK Crates - we're actually talking to some promoters, wrestlers and creative people to get some exclusive-to-Wrestle-Crate items in there. But generally speaking, if I don't think the cost of importing a certain items represents great value for our member's hard-earned money then I'll substitute it; possibly with a UK-based item (example: this month we replaced a Young Bucks coffee cup with a PCW DVD).


No offence taken at all, my good man. That's the beauty of the mystery box; some months will feature content that is exactly your cup of tea and others not so much. I'd be a fool to be offended by that. As I said when we last spoke though; I genuinely want to listen to what our members want (as it happens, I actually sent a survey to members this week and asked that very question on our Facebook page no more than 30 minutes ago), so please feel free to email me (info@wrestlecrate.co.uk) or use this forum to let us know the type of content you really want to see.
