It’s a new year, time for yet another box of goodies from Pro Wrestling Tees! This month was particularly nice seeing that I was able to get a double dose of crate action with AEW’s All Elite Crate as well. For those new to these subscription crates, Pro Wrestling Crate usually packs in anywhere from 8 to 10 items every month – these include a guarantee of a Micro Brawler Figurine, two T-shirts, a lapel pin, and an autographed 8 by 10 photo. Usually there’s a couple of small additional items in every box making this well worth the money spent. I would recommend, if you can swing it, purchasing A six month or yearly subscription as you get a pretty hefty discount doing so. In the past, I have subscribed to a number of different boxes, generally not liking most of them to be honest, but the guys over at Pro Wrestling Tees always do a fine job of picking great items making this my favorite subscription box of them all.

As with every one of these boxes, a portion of the proceeds went to a wrestling-related charity, this time it was Austin and Georgia Lee’s Relief Fund, It appears they lost their house in a fire back in October:

“At approximately 9:30 am on the morning of October 18, I (Georgia Lee, or some of you know me as Gia) was awoken by the distinct smell of smoke and a terrifying realization: our second-story apartment was on fire. Not only that, the fire had originated on the front porch, nearly trapping us inside. We went running through the flames, where we were met with a community of people rushing to our sides to get us to safety. Mere seconds from being trapped, Austin (Ace) and I escaped our home that was now engulfed in flames and smoke. All of our belongings, including our sweet cat Selina that had hidden out of fear, were trapped inside.

By some miracle, our baby girl was found alive and well buried under our ceiling and roof that had collapsed on top of her, shielding her from the flames and smoke. We are physically okay. Our little family is reunited. As for our home, it is gone. Something we worked so hard to build over the last year and a half, gone in minutes. We do not know what was able to be saved if anything.”

Spoiler Card:

Shirts:

Both T shirts are pretty solid this month. being a fan of both Adam Cole and Johnny Gargano means that I will be excited to rock these bad boys throughout the week. Not only does it postpone me doing laundry for two days, but I will be the envy of the five or six wrestling fans that I know of at the office this week. All kidding aside, the T shirts are generally one of the high points of this crate and this month is no exception.

Autographs:

I’m honestly pretty excited that Tony Neese has managed to escape a dead-end position in WWE and made his way over to AEW! The dude was easily the best part of 205 Live, and it was very depressing to see him get let go the way he did. Here’s hoping he can keep rising through the ranks, and possibly get a title soon!

Micro Brawler:

Finally! The existence of this Brawler was leaked many moons ago, so it’s good to see it finally see the light of day. Sadly I once again was unable to secure a chase figure, better luck next time!

PWG Blu-Ray:

I think this is the first Blu-ray disc that has ever been packed with one of these crates, and what a solid looking one it is! With an incredible match card containing many people that eventually moved on two other companies like AEW and even WWE, it will be cool to see some of these guys in their formative years just before a lot of them were snatched up. This Blu-ray is from 2017 and alone looks to be worth the price of this crate. Great addition!

Woooooooooooooooooo!

Matt Cardona Pizza Cutter:

OH MAN! I’m sure there’s going to be some angry Nick Gage fans out there throwing these in the trash in protest. even in merchandising Matt Cardona is one of the best heels in the Business Today!

Conclusion:

This month’s crate was one of the better ones. when you think about how much the Blu ray costs along with the T shirts alone everything else is pretty much icing on the cake after that. Well there wasn’t really a cohesive theme this time, a general theme these last few crates have had unfortunately, this one was very well put together and there’s not really a bad item in the whole lot. I’m not sure I’m going to do much with the toy pizza cutter, and a sticker is a sticker, but overall I’m very pleased with this month. If the blow preview picture is anything to go by, it looks like next month will also be very good.
