Budget Championship Wrestling

Recommended Posts

Little game to pass the time for those in isolation or who just want to pass the time while having a shit at work.

You have £50 to grab a bunch of wrestling related items. Post links to your hoard and the person with the most interesting stuff wins £50 out of my PayPal to actually buy their tat. I wanna see the most obscure and ridiculous collections of rubbish you can. Use eBay, Wish or anything to find the memorabilia you can’t believe someone actually made. Make it interesting and keep it wrestling related.
 

You can’t post something someone else has already found and only one entry per person. Although you can reply to other people’s finds as much as you like. I’ll judge the winner based on my own discretion but take into account the amount of likes the post has.

 

The winner can also donate the prize money to a charity of their choice or keep it to help them tick over during this time of financial uncertainty.

I’ll start with this Ultimate WWE Tattoo set starring CM Punk. It comes with gel pens and is only £10.

Follow that up with this knock-off Vegan World Order t-shirt. That’s a tenner too, but you have to pay to ship it from Portugal, so £15. I’m halfway to the budget.

You’ll need a drink at some point, so why not use these vintage Hardy Boyz shot glasses? £10 including delivery.

Relax late into the night with this copy of the WWE Originals album on CD. A mere £4.

Keep your stuff safe and use a 1991 vintage WWF bum bag. £1.70? Bargain.

And finally, rest your weary head on a customised Tyson Kidd cushion where he’s got the Cruiserweight Title for some reason. The final £9 gone, and that’s your lot.

 

(Genuinely tried my best here, the boiler stopped working tonight so I could use that £50!)

I'd buy this hideous fucking Rey Mysterio shirt that looks like his skin, Complete with tattoos but lacking his mid-2000s roid bulges. £25https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/WWF-WWE-Rey-Mysterio-Mexican-619-Official-T-shirt-2005-Wrestle-Mania-21-Size-XL/163933352005?hash=item262b307045:g:kzsAAOSw-7hdwvx7

 

I'd have this ugly as fuck plastic Rey Mysterio mask. It's half face too, not even over the top of the bonce. £6

Right, here goes.

First up, it's a throwback to Jaywick Market circa 1991 - the crap knock-off wrestling figure of, unsurprisngly, Braden Walker. It's listed as a best offer and I feel confident of shaking hands at £3.50.

IMG_6922.jpg

 

Second, it's an exact replica of John Cena, fashioned from cloth and kapox. A tenner isn't happening, but they'll be mad not accept my £8.50.

IMG_6923.jpg

Third, a screen-accurate Dude Love with boots, arms and face. It's an auction starting at £5 but seriously, who's going to be bid against me?

IMG_6924.jpg

 

Fourth, it's the Lita mug that's been printed in the style/quality of any such market poster. Listed as being heavily used, as has the mug. £4.99

IMG_6929.jpg

 

Fifth, it's the much saught-after Heidenreich Top-Trumps card. A nice little stocking filler at less than a pound.

IMG_6926.jpg

Sixth, the latest Drew McIntyre figure at £4.99

IMG_6928.jpg

Seventh (yes seventh), it's a piece of paper with Paul Burchil puffing up like a cold robin on it. Another best offer, and it's mine at 80 pence.

IMG_6931.jpg

Eight, a WWF rubber for £1.99

IMG_6927.jpg

Total including postage comes in at £48.79. I might thow in 2 Heidenreichs and combine postage to fill my fifty.

I'd never have expected it, but The Gymini were around for long enough to have their own action figures made: 

s-l1600.jpg

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/WWE-THE-GYMINI-TWINS-JAKE-JESSE-JAKKS-WRESTLING-FIGURE-ADRENALINE-SERIES-21/401755967471?hash=item5d8a858fef:g:7U8AAOSwGqVcwj34

They're just £18.29, and what's more, they've been used for display purposes only. 

I wasn't a fan during the era of Hardcore matches, but that's OK. I can recreate them from the comfort of my living room with this WWE garbage can accessory: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/wwe-Rubbish-Bin-Garbage-trash-can-accessory/223924192019?hash=item3422ec0313:g:rc8AAOSwwH9eUR0R

That's £3.49. I won't bore you with a picture, it's a bin at the end of the day. Albeit a BARGAIN PRICED one. 

But this one does merit a picture: 

Little-Boogeyman-signed-8x10-color-wrestling-photo-WWE-ECW-RARE-WWF

That's right, a signed photo of Little Boogeyman! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Little-Boogeyman-signed-8x10-color-wrestling-photo-WWE-ECW-RARE-WWF/173863737658?hash=item287b16193a:g:THMAAOxyyq5TMvBp

It's a bargain at £15,48, bringing my total so far to £37.26. More than enough money to get me: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/WWE-Kids-Toothbrush-Soft-2-Toothbrushes-Brush-Buddies/283297123007?epid=1962766372&hash=item41f5d30abf:g:1pIAAOSw0rdcDY9E

JOHN CENA AND DANIEL BRYAN BRUSH BUDDY TOOTHBRUSHES!! 

I may not have any toilet paper in, but for £9.32 I'll have teeth so clean it'll distract from any part of me that...erm...isn't. 

That's more than enough to get myself this: 

s-l1600.jpg

A Kenzo Suzuki/Hiroshi Tanahashi calendar from 2003 that one sneaky seller is trying to pass off as a poster: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-JAPAN-PRO-WRESTLING-KENZO-SUZUKI-HIROSHI-TANAHASHI-POSTER-njpw-wwe-wwf-roh/362944343971?hash=item54812b2fa3:g:XeAAAOSwnfRcLLOJ

£49.57. Job well done, I reckon.

Dunno how they didn't get over. That's like two Goldbergs for the price of one.

I’m not entirely sure that’s not what someone’s trying to sell here.

For a grand total of £47.58 you can get these works of beauty and/or cringe. 

 

Edit: just noticed you want links. If it helps the first is Wish, the second two Etsy. Enjoy.

On eBay I'm going for Buy It Nows with free postage, or adding postage to the price, because anything else is cheating quite frankly Jess.

For the bargain price of £12.99, I've been lucky enough to find a pair of shades that'll turn any figure in your home into a certified Bret Hart fan:

s-l500.jpg

Of course any action figure will become "Hitman Mad" once you've sat them down in front of WWE Network, which we all know costs a one-off sum of £6.50 for lifetime access:

20170817_Networkupdatenow--34daeb1c3becf

For £5.74 here's a beautiful addition to anyone's mantelpiece, the unpainted "look a like" head of Haku:

s-l1600.jpg

Bookmark Calloway will help you read in peace for just £6.98:

s-l1600.jpg

This American lifestyle magazine seems to have an article about women's revolution forerunner Candice Michelle, and like all classic literature its held its value, setting you back £13.49:

s-l1600.jpg

A guilty £5.99 under the table gets you this dubious New Day ornament, designed by popular children's author Enid Blyton:

s-l500.jpg

Who said Trips doesn't do flips? An absolute paedophile, that's who. Because here he is, our man of mans, with his very own flip book, and it's a flippin' steal at £3.50:

s-l1600.jpg

This leaves you with only £1.31, which sadly isn't enough to... BAH GAWD, KING! THAT'S HIGHSPOTS TV'S MUSIC! And he's saying you can have his DOUBLE-SIDED flyer for £1.25! In this economy!

s-l500.jpg

Your remaining six pennies can be used as loose weights for action figures to throw at each other in the gym, when they're not showing their support for Bret Hart on WWE Network.
