Wrestling’s most prolific t-shirt retailer is making a big change after their annual Black Friday Sale, discontinuing The Elite’s Bullet Club shirts!




In their latest email blast, Pro Wrestling Tees revealed that after their annual Black Friday Sale, The Elite’s Bullet Club shirts will no longer be available. The subject of the email, “Bullet Club Shirts Gone Forever?” definitely had some people wondering what was going on!

The email included an image which showed shirt designs for Cody Rhodes, The Young Bucks, Kenny Omega, Hangman Page, and Marty Scurll.

The subject did it’s job, getting us to click, but it also turned out to be slightly false. The Chairshot’s Greg DeMarco reached out to Pro Wrestling Tees, who confirmed that it is just The Elite members who will see their Bullet Club merchandise discontinued. Bullet Club, as a brand, will remain on the online retailer’s site:

“Just the Elite BC shirts will be discontinued.”

Not so coincidentally, Pro Wrestling Tees is also releasing new merchandise for The Elite during the same sale:

Pro Wrestling Tees annual Black Friday Sale actually starts on Tuesday, November 20, at 12 noon (central time). The sale will end at the same time on November 26.

Disclaimer: The Chairshot (like many entities in the world of pro wrestling) has a store on Pro Wrestling Tees, and a commission is received for sales. That relationship had no bearing on this report.




Greg’s Take

This piqued my interest at first, as it seemed like Pro Wrestling Tees was somehow forced to pick sides, and picked The Elite. Obviously that isn’t the case, but the truth behind it all (which I appreciate them sharing so quickly) is that it further moves The Elite to the forefront.

New Japan Pro Wrestling has aspirations of growing their brand globally, and expansion in the United States is a huge part of that. Bullet Club was also a huge part of that, thanks in no small part to the roles played by The Young Bucks, Cody Rhodes, and Kenny Omega. The company seems to be in a position to move on without those four in the future, although I wouldn’t be shocked of Kenny Omega re-signs with the company he so strongly pledged to grow. The Bullet Club OGs are still going strong, but don’t have the marketability in the United States that the members of The Elite have.

Los Ingobernables De Japon seems to have stronger following in the States than the current Bullet Club, so it’ll be interesting to see how things are marketed in 2019.

Needless to say, the next steps for The Elite will be a huge story in the coming months, and you know your friends here at The Chairshot will be right there to keep you updated!

And since I added the disclaimer, why not check out OUR STORE on Pro Wrestling Tees, eh?

Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle: Viking Name Change, Star Moved To Raw, AEW Signings and More! (4/23/2019)

News involving the Viking Name Change, Star Moved To Raw, AEW Signings and More!

News here! Viking Name Change, Star Moved To Raw, AEW Signings and More!

Vikings Get A Name Change

Many fans and wrestling personalities commented on the War Raiders name change to the Viking Experience. Now, it looks like the WWE has changed the teams name again. They will now be known as the Viking Raiders according to their WWE.com bio.

Jason’s Take

I get that WWE wants to name outside teams with their own in house names, but I still don’t understand why they were renamed from War Machine. I could have lived with War Raiders as well, but what do I know.

Cesaro Moved To RAW

Earlier today, we told you about the superstars that are moving to SmackDown Live. Now it appears that a superstar from the blue brand will be moving to RAW. POST Wrestling is reporting that Cesaro will be moving to RAW, effectively ending The Bar.

Jason’s Take

Cesaro and Sheamus had a great run as a tag team, and its a shame that both of them are not moving over to RAW, as I feel there is still some mileage left in the team.

AEW Signs 4 More

AEW continues to add talent to what is already shaping up to be an impressive roster. The signings include Leva Bates, Peter Avalon, and the tag team Private Party.

Jason’s Take

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; AEW is already shaping up to have one of the more impressive female rosters in North America. Here is hoping that it will live up to the hype.

WWE Holding Tryout In China

WWE continues to hold tryouts on foreign soil as the company will hold a tryout in China on July 15th to the 18th. According the press release:

SHANGHAI, China and STAMFORD, Conn. — WWE today announced that it will return to China in search of the next generation of Superstars by holding a talent tryout in Shanghai, its largest tryout in China to date. The four-day tryout, from Monday, July 15, through Thursday, July 18, will give up to 50 male and female athletes from China the opportunity to showcase their abilities, with the goal of being selected to begin training at the state-of-the-art WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Fla.

“We are excited to return to Shanghai following the huge success of the first tryout in 2016,” said Paul “Triple H” Levesque, WWE Executive Vice President, Talent, Live Events & Creative. “I have a personal message to every athlete and performer in China who has a dream of becoming a WWE Superstar: I am coming to Shanghai to help you make that happen. This is real, this is your chance. Step up and take this opportunity to change your life forever.”

Jason’s Take

This isn’t your father’s WWE. Hell, this isn’t the WWE from when I was younger. WWE continues to search and find talent to bring in to the company. You can say what you want, but the company does a great job in tapping into the foreign talent markets.

Andrade, Zelina Vega, and Aleister Black Moved to WWE Smackdown

Did Charlotte Flair have anything to do with this?

Published

on

Andrade Cien Almas Zelina Vega WWE Superstar Shake-Up

Three talents get shaken up once more: Andrade, Zelina Vega, and Aleister Black head to WWE Smackdown in a WWE Superstar Shake-Up reversal.

In a surprising move, WWE has changed the profiles for Andrade, Zelina Vega, and Aleister Black to the blue brand, WWE Smackdown. Black was assigned to Raw during the Superstar Shake-Up, and Andrade and Vega were moved there in a spot that saw Andrade get a clean victory over Intercontinental Champion Finn Balor.

The internet, of course, immediately jumps to conclusions about the Latin representation of Smackdown (Rey Mysterio was also moved to Raw), as well as the relationship between Charlotte Flair and Andrade. Aleister and Zelina are married, and WWE has been trying to keep couples together. Do you think Charlotte Flair is responsible for this move?

Greg DeMarco’s Take on this WWE Superstar Shake-Up Reversal

I stand in the middle! I know, I don’t do that often. But Andrade to Raw made a ton of sense, as he can be a workhorse there and eat up TV time by putting on great matches. Smackdown is loaded (even more so), and I really hope 3 people move back to Raw in the process. As for why? This can definitely be a case of “LOLCHARLOTTEWINS” as she and Andrade are of course an item. If so, that shows how strong of a pairing Zelina and Andrade are if she went with him, and since Zelina and Aleister are married, Black goes as well. I could see the four of them traveling together, honestly.
