As you see on the independent wrestling scene today, merchandise is a key factor in the business. WWE, having been around for so many years, has seen the ups and downs and the just-plain weird when it comes to the merch game, but this one is quite odd. It’s just a term that’s been trademarked, so we don’t know exactly what merchandise they plan to make with it, but the WWE have applied to trademark “The Irresistible Force”, and it’s got us all scratching our head.
The WWE hasn't used the phrase for quite some time, and it’s most famous use was between Andre the Giant and Hulk Hogan when WWE claimed “The Immovable Object meets The Irresistible Force” so it’s just strange timing for them to do this now. Granted, The Andre the Giant Documentary just dropped its first trailer (I recommend you go check it out), but still, is there much of a demand for such merch? Logic would dictate no, but you never know and the WWE has worked wonders with their merchandising before.
Either way, this is a thing, and it’s happening. We don’t know when, we don’t know what… frankly, we have absolutely no idea what’s going on, but hey, it could work I guess?
So what do you guys think? Something you’d be interested in buying? What do you think they could make out of this? Something you don’t care about at all (I’m with you)? Let us know all your thoughts in the comments below.
