Merchandise is very important to pro wrestlers, and everything needs to be taken into account when it comes to even the placement of a logo. That apparently became a big problem for some members of a legendary stable.

Sean Sapp noted behind Fightful’s paywall that several NWO members are very unhappy about a new piece of merchandise.

After former Grapsody host Will Washington posted a Fanatics nWo shirt, Fightful heard several members of the actual group were frustrated.

We’ve heard that numerous New World Order members felt like that including the WWE logo underneath the NWO logo undermined the spirit of the shirt. WWE’s merchandise is all handled through Fanatics, who were made aware of the frustration. 


It was also noted that, “Another WWE superstar actually contacted Fightful after Washington posted the photo and said that a similar situation happened years ago with WWEShop. Specifically, there was a point of frustration with WWE including the “authentic wear” tag at the bottom of the shirt, and also insisting that many of the shirts have text on the back. The talent said they remember numerous wrestlers expressing discontent with that and believing that it negatively affected sales.”

Apart from that, “there was consideration made in removing the WWE logo from the shirt, but haven’t heard an update.” We will have to see if this situation is fully resolves, but no pro wrestler involved in the situation has gone public about it yet.
