Our first event into the new year is a lively one, ‘Hit him with the chair?!’ That’s right, TNA is back this weekend, and is wrestling its way across the UK.
Here at Event! we like rummaging through our back catalogue, finding forgotten gems and stumbling upon the rarity. This week it was our mission to find some one-of-a-kind wrestling merch to show you all, and look what we found…
Cast your mind back to the glory days when ‘Hollywood’ Hulk Hogan was under the management of the charismatic Jimmy Hart. Jimmy decided to split from Hogan and in the process of doing so, he curated ‘The Ultimate Wrestling Collection.’ Inside were discs containing classic championship matches from Florida and Memphis. Jimmy also included a selection of his favourite hit tunes and theme music as well as lost episodes of wrestling action from XWF. There were over 100 wrestling stars and legends featured in this collection including; ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper, Jerry Lawler, Konnan and Hulk Hogan.
We also found some World Wrestling Federation TY Bears. These bears are of iconic wrestlers like Kane and Shamrock.
TNA starts at the Manchester Arena tomorrow night, then close-lining it’s way to London’s SSE Wembley Arena, before tapping out in Birmingham’s Barclaycard Arena on Sunday. Tickets are still available if you want some thrilling and entertaining ringside action. For more pictures and information from the event, see our Facebook page.
