WRESTLING MERCHANDISE 101: Kris Statlander contends for Figure of the Year, January 2022 Pro Wrestling Crate detail, more



New Arrivals


I received my Kris Statlander figure last week from Ringside Collectibles. Jazwares absolutely nailed this figure. It’s one of the best in the whole AEW Unrivaled Collection and is a clear contender for Figure of the Year.

The figure is wearing her gear from the 4/14/21 edition of AEW Dynamite. The outfit is green and black, includes a knee brace, and snakeskin boots. They captured her likeness very accurately and her face includes green face paint. Other details include blue and pink streaks in the hair and very detailed tattoos. If there is one miss, they could have easily included an alternate pointing hand to do her “boop” gesture, but I’m sure that will be included on subsequent figures.

Ringside Collectibles currently has the figure on back-order (listed for mid-February) for $27.99, but you can try your luck at Target, Wal-Mart, or Game Stop, however I wouldn’t expect those to start showing up on shelves at local stores for weeks.


(Warning: This section contains spoilers about the contents of the January 2022 Pro Wrestling Crate). The January 2022 Pro Wrestling Crate has arrived at the Wrestling Merchandise 101 Headquarters (which is not really a thing, but it sounds fancy.)

Here are the contents of this month’s box:

-Johnny Gargano t-shirt (based on the Marvel character Carnage)
-Adam Cole t-shirt (his name and initials are in big bold lettering– it’s a cool design that you might even consider wearing in public if you’re feeling up to it)
-IRS Micro Brawler
-PWG blu-ray (Mine was BOLA 2016, Stage Two)
-Autographed 8×10 of AEW’s Tony Nese
-Ric Flair lapel pin
-Matt Cardona pizza cutter (The true prize of the box. Not sure how functional it is though– I wouldn’t try to cut an actual pizza with this. Maybe a Totino’s, and that’s pressing it).
-Bret Hart sticker

-This month’s charity is the Ace Austin & Georgia Lee Relief Fund. Overall, this was a pretty decent box, highlighted by the Adam Cole shirt and the Matt Cardona pizza cutter. Next month’s box promises items of Adam Page, Dusty Rhodes, Dude Love, and more. To find out more about Pro Wrestling Crate, go to prowrestlingcrate.com.
