A monthly subscription crate from Pro Wrestling Crate

And I was wrong, I ended up with a March crate afterall. I was almost absolutely sure the new pricing and shipping started this month, but I suppose not. My apologies if that caused any confusion on my end. So, I have a confession here folks – I will be dropping this crate pretty soon, as well as any other monthly crate I get to save money. While I love getting these things, inflation has been absolutely crazy, and spending something like eighty dollars a month on toys and stuff is not something I should really be doing right now. For those that really enjoy reading these, I am truly sorry, but unless I get sponsored or something, it’s just not on the cards right now. Stay tuned for one more review and we’ll see if I eventually go back at some point in the future. But hey, let’s not be bummed out, because I still have a box of stuff to look at, and that’s better than nothing on most days!
Pro Wrestling Crate always donates to charity with some of their proceeds, and this time it was for the family of the sadly passed away Jay Briscoe:
“On the evening of January 17th, our community and friends across the world were left in shock after the news of the passing of Jamin, a man who made everyone around him a better person. The Pugh family’s world has shifted, and with that there will be many unforeseen expenses. We have set this page up (with approval from the family) to help ease any burden that may arise from this tragedy.”
For those new to these subscription crates, Pro Wrestling Crate usually packs in anywhere from 7 to 10 items every two months (previously monthly) – 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. If you can still do it, I would recommend 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.
Since I am wearing the MJF shirt as we speak, and it has cracked multiple people up, I’d say it’s a keeper. Next up is a They Live/Rowdy Roddy Piper shirt that is both very simple and pretty awesome at the same time. great shirts for sure this month!
As always, the autograph chosen for the box was pretty cool, and not the one I expected it to be. Lince Dorado was always cool on WWE whenever they’d allow him to actually do something from time to time, so seeing him get to flourish a bit more on MLW has been great.
This is still easily one of the most bizarre gimmick changes in all of wrestling history. Taking the established wrestler, The One Man Gang, and swapping him to a nonsensical character named Akeem the African Dream was weird, even for WWE standards. OMG was noticeably a white man in biker attire, but by virtue of being under the tutelage of Slick, it seemed this was somehow logical. Sure, there are white people in Africa, as well as pretty much every other race, but he’s obviously dressed as if he’s from a fantasy version of Cameroon or something, a place where you’d be hard pressed to find a white native. Don’t even get me started on the way he was introduced, where Mean Gene Oakerlund was seen reporting from “The Deepest Darkest Parts Of Africa,” where dancers dressed as tribal Africans danced and chanted around a fire. A brawler is cool here, just to encapsulate the insanity of 80’s and early 90’s wrestling. Sadly, no chase figure 😦
While this is in my wheelhouse aesthetically, I don’t have too much wall space at the moment, so I am not certain if I will be able to properly display this flag. As far as I know this is a new item they have never done before, so that’s cool! Thankfully it’s not another pair of ill-fitting socks!
These pins are always cool, and you can’t especially go wrong with Stiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing!
Can’t say much about a sticker but this one is cool, love me some Adam Cole Bay Bayyyy!
Overall, another solid box with some great shirts, a good autograph, a cool action figure and fun pin. I was glad to see the flag, although I am still not certain I have room for it, but props for them for trying something new. This wasn’t one of the best boxes I’ve been sent, but it was well above average. The breakout item are definitely the shirts, both were awesome this time around!
