WWE’s Pettiness Is Your Gain

So as you may have heard, Punk is suing WWE for royalties on his merchandise. Their response: slash all his merchandise prices so he gets almost nothing. Like this one for instance: the AWESOME Punk DVD for $2.99. Seriously.

His shirts and other gear is cheap as well. Even Eric Bischoff’s book was more expensive than this if that tells you anything.Grab this stuff while you can.

    It’s both awesome for the fans, and pathetically petty of the company. The sad part is I’m no longer surprised by this sort of thing.

    And the shit will sell even more like hotcakes because he’s popular. Punk still gets paid, WWE is still petty, people will still chant for him.

    I picked up that DVD brand new for $5 at FYE about a fortnight ago, so that was good timing.

    Unfortunately all his shirts are now gone, most were cleared out when his contract was up, but oh well. I’ve at least got the shirts I wanted for Punk merchandise.

    Why sell stuff of those who don’t want to be associated with you? Sooner his stuff is gone, the quicker he is out of mind.

    Doesn’t make sense to sell them for practically nothing.
