Wrestling merchandise can be weird, like really weird. Spotted on eBay by the person who runs the @WCWworldwide Twitter account, this (apparently rare) Sting hat is one of the oddest pieces of merch I’ve ever seen. It’s certainly the first latex hat of a facepainted wrestler riding a rocket ship I’ve ever seen.
eBay user “Awoo1384” claims the hat was purchased at an estate sale and he originally thought it was Alice Cooper (which to be fair, makes a little bit more sense). After consulting with a big AC fan though, he realised it is actually the Stinger himself.
The facepaint is clearly the late 90s “Crow” Sting, and WCW are renowned for producing some rather bizarre merch:
