Can someone please explain to me why, in 2018, target is selling this?

@ajroach42 Not probably i absolutely would if i were strolling through target and saw it

@somarasu if I didn’t still have my red spray paint version from 1999, I might have considered it.

fans?

WCW hasn’t been a thing in, what, 17 years?

And black and white nWo lost the belt with the finger poke of death in Atlanta in, I think, 1999. I was there! This is a product that hasn’t been relevant in 20 years.

But it’s on the shelves!

I even saw a Bill Goldberg action figure, with “Spear” action.

I’m perplexed. Who is this for?

They also had, get this, crossfire.

You remember crossfire?

Original box art and everything.

I don’t know who this is for, either.

@ajroach42 unequivocally the most memorable theme song for 90s toys

@ajroach42 90s kids that have grown up and are starting to get nostalgic. Same reason a lot of Nicktoons are getting new seasons/movies.
