We've looked at WWF merchandise from 1988, 1992 and 1997, but what about WCW?
The fine folks from Atlanta had lots of their own merch to hawk back in the day...
You remember Wrestling Buddies, right? In the late 1980's, the WWF created a whole series of pillow-like figures that you could pretend wrestle on the couch, pose menacingly or, if you were so inclined, snuggle up in bed with.
If I recall correctly, there was Hulk Hogan, Macho Man Randy Savage, The Ultimate Warrior, Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase and (possibly) Ted Arcidi.
Well, WCW had their own version of Wrestling Buddies known as "Wrestling Champs", with fairly accurate portrayals of main characters Sting and Lex Luger, on sale in the WCW Merchandise Catalog for just $22 per.
The only knock on these knock-offs is that both Stinger and Lex look kind of.... bored. It's like they're saying "Yeah, kid; drop an elbow on me. Whatever. I don't give a crap."
