Just when I think I’ve seen it all, these things pop onto eBay out of nowhere. Now, I’ve quickly scanned through various Sting and Hogan PPV entrances from 1994/1995 and they’re not there either. In fact, you can see a sea of various red and yellow merch on kids in these crowds ranging from the Hulkster shirts, Hogan bandanas, foam Hulkster hands, to even a foam Hulk Hogan… ear thing:
Nothing for these Hulk Hogan and Sting Fan Hand gloves though. Or are they Hulk Hogan and Sting puppets?? I really don’t know what purpose these were designed for as they don’t seem to even be fun to wear. They’re not thick enough to be useful as oven mitts or boxing pads. What are they? Where did they come from?
I asked the eBay seller to see if he could give me some insight on these weird-ass gloves.
“I used to be on the WCW production crew. I used to get alot of the merch for my kids. Don’t know much about them other than I got them at one of the shows.”
Like Evolution, this one is a mystery. I will pull out some catalogs and put a call out on Twitter to see if anyone else can find more info on them. Could it be that this production guy managed to snag some rare prototype garbage merch for his kids? It’s possible! More updates to come?
