As a company, WWE takes its history seriously. And why shouldn’t they, considering the names like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Hulk Hogan, John Cena, and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin have all become household names because of the sports entertainment company. And there’s no better way to explore the company’s history, as well as those of its biggest superstars, than by digging into the WWE Encyclopedia of Sports Entertainment, a 400-page guide to all those iconic wrestling moments.

This version, which was published in September 2020, has everything you’d want from an encyclopedia of the popular wrestling company, including lists of title reigns, the history of those exciting WrestleMania matches, and more. Best of all, it comes in a single volume.

This Razor Ramon Vintage T-Shirt

The wrestling world lost one of its most legendary figures in March 2022 with the passing of Scott Hall, who old school wrestling fans will remember as Razor Ramon. The self-described “Bad Guy” will forever go down as one of the most transformative personalities in the business thanks to his size, charisma, and natural in-ring talent that provided WWE’s “New Generation” with some of its biggest moments. And that’s before Hall went to WCW to start the NWO faction with Kevin Nash and Hulk Hogan.

This Razor Ramon vintage shirt is the perfect gift for that big wrestling fan in your life, especially if they grew up watching the WWE hall of famer during his first run.

This Royal Rumble Card Game For Pay-Per-View Parties

Who knows how Royal Rumble parties, or the annual Royal Rumble event itself, will look in 2021, but there is something to hold the wrestling fans over in the meantime. The WWE Legends Royal Rumble Card Game from Ravensburger comes with 30 of the most popular and prolific names in the history of WWE that you can then use to reign supreme over the competition at any gathering or a not-so-quiet night watching old wrestling videos with your brothers. This easy-to-understand game can be enjoyed by as many as 10 players or as few as two, and takes anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes to complete. And best yet, this Royal Rumble game won't have the damaging effects on your body, mind, soul, and even friendships like all of those unofficial Royal Rumble drinking games.

There’s a good chance AEW All Out 2022 will be one of those wrestling pay-per-views forever living in infamy due to the behind-the-scenes drama that went down the night of the event. But before the alleged brawl between CM Punk, the Young Bucks, Kenny Omega, and others took place, AEW put on a remarkable show with an incredible card. And now you can own a copy of the event poster to never forget the night.

The Squared Circle: Life, Death, and Professional Wrestling

A Copy Of The Squared Circle: Life, Death, And Professional Wrestling

There are countless wrestling books out there, but let's be honest, not all of them are great or even moderately entertaining or enlightening. That's far from the case for David Shoemaker's 2014 book titled The Squared Circle: Life, Death, and Professional Wrestling. This nearly 400-page history of the art of professional wrestling told through the stories of some of the sport's biggest and brightest stars. With chapters and subchapters dedicated to the legacy of the iconic Bobo Brazil, Junkyard Dog, the Von Erich family, and other legends of wrestling, Shoemaker offers an unparalleled recounting of those individuals' lives and legacies. Shoemaker's writing style, his extensive use of footnotes, and general love of professional wrestling's memorable stories make this a must-read.

This Classic New Japan Pro Wrestling Lion Crest T-Shirt

There are few promotions in the wrestling industry more respected than New Japan Pro Wrestling, and there are few logos as recognizable as the company’s classic “King of Sports” Lion crest. If you have a wrestling fan in your life that got into NJPW the past couple of years but doesn’t have this simple yet visually striking shirt, now is your perfect opportunity.

And don’t get worried about not having the shirt shipped in time, as it is printed and delivered by ProWrestlingTees, the wrestling apparel company that handles a lot of NJPW’s merchandise orders in the United States. Long gone are the days of waiting a month or more for a T-shirt to arrive from Japan.

This Lucha Wars Dice Game

If the Royal Rumble card game mentioned earlier isn’t enough for you or the wrestling fan in your life, then check out this Lucha Wars dice-rolling game. As many as eight players can take part in this competitive and easy-to-play game that features all kinds of zany and cartoonish characters fighting for the top prize and all the glory.

Each roll of the dice leads to a different outcome, whether that means knocking your opponent off a ladder or knocking them out of the match for good. And there are multiple match types including singles matches, tag team bouts, and other gimmick matches including one set in a steel cage, but only if you’re up to the challenge.

You can buy the WWE Championship belt or the Universal Championship belt (both are the same price), or buy both and live out your fantasy of being the undisputed champion like Roman Reigns

Again, these have a lot of details, which makes them more expensive than the plastic belts you see at the store. But if you are serious about your fandom, this is the way to go.

Philip grew up in Louisiana (not New Orleans) before moving to St. Louis after graduating from Louisiana State University-Shreveport. When he's not writing about movies or television, Philip can be found being chased by his three kids, telling his dogs to stop barking at the mailman, or chatting about professional wrestling to his wife. Writing gigs with school newspapers, multiple daily newspapers, and other varied job experiences led him to this point where he actually gets to write about movies, shows, wrestling, and documentaries (which is a huge win in his eyes). If the stars properly align, he will talk about For Love Of The Game being the best baseball movie of all time.
