Before I accidentally forget to get this out on time again, I wanted to show off what was in the May 2022 Pro Wrestling Crate. With Summer in all its mighty, overbearing splendor, there is nothing better than curling up in a house full of recirculated cold air not dealing with the outside. What better way to spend your time than looking at a box full of wrestling swag that you can make all of your other wrestling friends jealous with?

As with every one of these boxes, some of the proceeds go to a charity, usually wrestling-related. This month it was The Don West Tag Team Against Lymphoma which aims to

“This fund is created for my brother-in-law Don West who was recently diagnosed with brain lymphoma. His course of treatment promises to be long and costly.

Don is a devoted husband to his beautiful wife Terri. He has been blessed to work with and meet so many people through his work with the Shop at Home Network, TNA Wrestling, the Wenatchee Wild Hockey Team, and most recently with Cherry Creek Media and News Radio 560 KPQ radio station and the Don West Show.

Don and Terri would like to thank you for the outpouring of love and prayers since the announcement and for coming alongside them on this health journey. And he is anxious to return to his show!”

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. You can also get a double dose of crate action with AEW’s All Elite Crate as well.

Spoiler Card:

Shirts:

Solid shirts that take some of the best parts of The Attitude Era and make shirts that look far better than most of the shirts out at that time. I know I already had a long conversation with a Jeff Hardy fan when I wore this Hardy Boyz shirt to an aquarium, so these shirts always end up being big talking pieces.

Autograph:

This month’s autograph is Danhausen! I hope the guys at PWC set aside all of the bags of money from this crate to help fund Danhausen’s very nice, and yet very evil blimp which is sadly STILL not in operation.

Micro Brawler:

Ah yes, one of the legends of the sport. All joking aside, Fred Ottman is easily one of the coolest wrestlers to meet at just about any autograph signing, and I love how he has embraced The Shockmaster after all of these years. One of my favorite autographs is a “Three Faces of Ottman” picture with Tug Boat, Shockmaster and Typhoon signatures. I will proudly display this on my shelf!

Andrade El Idolo/ La Sombra Comic Book:

I always enjoy these comic books put in from Headlocked Comics, and I’m sure this will be no exception.

Pin:

Yet another solid lapel pin with a message I wish 99% percent of wrestling fans would actually adopt. screw all of the stupid tribalism and in-fighting and JUST ENJOY WRESTLING!

Socks:

Pretty fun socks, although I am sometimes disappointed in how not stretchy these can be. I guess I have big feet, and sometimes it takes quite a bit of effort to get these off after a long day of wearing them. Maybe something for them to look into.

Conclusion:

This crate is another adequate, but not too exciting crate from these guys, but slightly better than the last few. Standout items are the Danhausen 8×10, which I am a huge fan of, and the Shockmaster figure. The shirts were cool, and I know I’ll dig the comic book, but I’m somewhat burnt out by the socks. I stated before that the socks always look cool but don’t really fit my feet as well as they could, and hope they will look into a softer, more stretchy material in the future. Fingers crossed!
