What do wrestling fans love?
Kevin Owens scalding someone over Twitter? Yes.
Bullet Club unveiling a new member? Sometimes.
Roman Reigns winning the WWE Universal Championship? No…erm…thats up to you.
The ultimate answer is MERCHANDISE! We love Merch, DVDS, Blu-rays, T-shirts, signed stuff, its great.
So this month it’s my job to look at the latest wrestling crate that arrived on the doorstep of the offices here at Steelchair Wrestling Magazine. (Did I mention that we have a new magazine released an its going for £3.50? No I haven’t? Okay then.)
The latest wrestling crate that arrived was on behalf of SLOBBER KNOCKER BOX, “the subscription service by wrestling fans, for wrestling fans”
Now before you can find a Brad Pitt meme asking “What is in the box?”, let them tell you:
“The Wrestling Themed Subscription Service by wrestling fans, for wrestling fans. A box of awesome wrestling themed merchandise, delivered to your door each month. Items differ each month, but can include T-Shirts, DVD’s, Funko Pop, Mattel figures, Topps and much more.”
Now the really important stuff, the money, how much does it cost you?
Three different packages available: Slobber Knocker Box Deluxe, Slobber Knocker Box and Exclusive T-Shirt Only.
Slobber Knocker Box Deluxe contains everything in their standard box, plus some extra added wrestling awesomeness. Basically this is the ultimate package. Cost: £26.00.
Slobber Knocker Box contains a box packed to the brim with top quality wrestling goodies. Cost £16.00.
Exclusive T-Shirt Only meaning you get a new exclusive wrestling T-Shirt. Sizes available 5-6yrs to 5XL Cost: £8.00.
So what was available in Februarys Deluxe Crate?
There is no doubt a bulk of this months crate was aimed at the UK market with three DVDs from UK promotions:
Vertigo Pro. Perfect Storm 1: Let Them Fight!
“A brand new Wrestling company operating out of Cardiff, Wales. We have so far played host to talents such as Dave Mastiff, Jonny Storm, Bison Brody, Justin Sysum, Lou King Sharp and more.”

Also featured in the create, signed promo photos of Bubblegum, Liam Slater, Aston Smith and Sam Bailey.
Onto T-shirts, comfortable and excellent “This is FLAIR Country” T-shirt
and “King of the Cruiserweights” which looks similar to the Burger King design, thats amusing.
