    As the title says what were the first bits of wrestling merch you got either as bday gifts or more than likely from Santa :pac:

    First xmas gifts that stand out for me were xmas 91 when I was 5 I got Hulk Hogan and Ultimate Warrior wrestling buddys sent over from the states because WWF merch was hard to get a hold of over here (unlike 92 when WWF was EVERYWHERE). My bday is in Feb so I cant remember if it was Santa or a bday present but I got a wrestling ring, action figures and a best of Hulkamania VHS around that time too. Man I loved watching the 4 matches on that video, it was Hogan v Andre WMIII, Hogan v Savage from France just after WM5, Hogan v Slaughter and Hogan v Undertaker from SS91.

    Anyway enough of my rambling, show your age and tell all what was your first bit of wrestling merch

    Not my picture but I remember getting Diesel, Undertaker, Bret Hart and Hbk of these figures. You would be able to bend their arms and legs & hear noises like bones crunching. I remember being so disappointed getting Hbk :rolleyes:
    I remember the only other two figures my parents could find were Razor Ramon and Goldust.

    As a four year old i had this 12 inch rubber Shieky baby figure..... I had that, a King Kong Bundy one and a Junk Yard Dog figure.

    What a time to be a wrestling fan.

    I got all of these around the same period of time. Also got a shawn Michaels pendant necklace thing which I can't find a picture of.

    XXL size from the late 80's, I still have and it's still to big for me.

    Once a year or so I put it on and get ready to rip it Hogan style but just don't have the heart to to do it.

    I had a Roddy Piper action figure that someone who was visiting us gave to me. I was fascinated.

    Saved up for ages to buy this. A guy in a market in Dundalk had a WWF catalogue that he ordered it from. Took about 3 months to arrive..
    just in time for School Sports Day. I thought I was the shít

    A few months later Santa brought me the blue ring with the "real bell" attached to the side and a heap of wrestlers, I was so bloody happy but annoyed the **** out of the rest of the house with that bell. I remember it also had a speaker beside it that played some crowd and ring noises too.
