November’s Ultimate Wrestle Crate was a cracker as always and made me pretty happy when the postman dropped it off this afternoon. The people from Wrestle Crate keeping the awesome crates arriving each month.

The first item out of November’s Crate is a mystery mini Funko Vinyl Figure, this series of mini figures look awesome with figures of superstars such as Dusty Rhodes, Ted Dibiase, Stone Cold, Bret Hart and Goldust. Upon opening my mystery box I found that I had received a Sting figure, which looks freakin awesome and maybe the start of a new wrestling collection of mine.
Next out is this months DVD from US independent company Beyond Wrestling, their annual show Americanrana 16. I have heard lots of good stuff about Beyond and have wanted to catch some of their stuff for a long while, so this will be some great viewing for me. With matches such as Johnny Gargano V David Starr, Zack Sabre Jr V Jonathan Gresham, Chris Hero V Kimber Lee and AR Fox V Matt Tremont this looks like an awesome show. Wrestle Crate UK introducing us UK fans to yet more new wrestling and for this I thank you.
The set of four coasters that have been in the past three crates is now complete, with this months paying homage to one of the best factions of the last few years The Shield on. This set looks awesome together and will look class on a table, maybe even during Christmas dinner. Hmmmmm I wonder if my other half may let this become a new Christmas tradition….
Next out was a signed photo of two members of the Preston City Wrestling Academy Jimmy J and Jennie B, I’ve not seen either of these two before but is always nice to get recognition out there for up and coming wrestlers. Definitely going to hunt down some matches of these pair after receiving this photo.
This months PROGRESS Wrestling and Wrestle Crate UK collaboration is awesome, probably one of the most unique pieces of wrestling merchandise I own….a PROGRESS Wrestling projector pen!! It reminds me of the bat signal from Batman, I wonder if it works in the same way if I shine it in the sky then PROGRESS Wrestling will appear…. we can only hope. Long may the awesome partnership that PROGRESS Wrestling and Wrestle Crate have going!!
The first t-shirt in this months Ultimate Crate pays homage to one of the great styles of wrestling from Japan, Puroresu!! The shirt is in a slick black and white complete with Japanese symbols meaning “professional wrestling”, now i just need NJPW to come up to not so sunny Scotland so I can wear this during some Japanese action or maybe a trip to the land of the rising sun must happen.
Next out is a signed piece of artwork the amazing artist Erle of former WWE star Aldo Rose. Erle never fails to impress me with his awesome artwork and this one is a technicolor beauty and captures Rose in all his glory complete with lollipop. The only thing that could possibly make this piece any better is that it is signed by Aldo Rose making it a truly exclusive item.
The final item I got my hands on is a Seth Rollins shirt and it was worth the wait as it’s yet another awesome t-shirt to add to my ever growing collection of exclusive Wrestle Crate shirts. The design is sweet with his nickname The Architect in the centre and his home town either side, with his target style design around. I’m a big Seth Rollins fan so this is perfect for me and the yellow stands out superbly on the grey t-shirts, thank you Wrestle Crate UK!!!
SOMEONE STOP THE DAMN MATCH!!
