Pro wrestling t-shirts are big buisines for the wrestling industry. The sales that WWE and AEW make in that regard, make up a massive margin for the respective companies’ earnings, and that’s for very good reason. Fans want to adorn themselves in the articles of clothing and apparel of their favorite wrestlers, and thus the need for a site like Pro Wrestling Tees, as well as the official online stores provided by the promotions themselves.

It is at stores like pro wrestling tees that fans can get stuff that’s a tad more personalized and its possible to get t-shirts that aren’t under the constraints set up by each of the aforementioned promotions. Besides, the platform is a place for the pro wrestlers themselves to sell their merch. Even Johnny Gargano returned to the platform to do business once his WWE contract was up.

Essentially, sites like this have cool stuff you can’t really find anywhere else. As it turns out though, fans found a little bit of trouble on this particular site a few months back.

It was back in November that the Pro Wrestling Tees site was hacked and a ton of credit card fraud was reported. The company just recently released a statement regarding what went down and how they plan to move forward from the incident. They also added what you can do to prevent it from ever happening again, as a customer.
