What a strange combination. WWE has been around for a very long time now and they have figured out a lot of things about how to run a successful wrestling promotion. That includes finding all kinds of ways to make money, which can come from a variety of different areas. One of the biggest areas is in merchandising and now they have a pair of new items out, though they couldn’t be much more different.
Later this month, WWE will be presenting Survivor Series, with a focus on the Undertaker’s thirty year anniversary with the company. That is not the kind of thing that happens very often and it would make sense to have something commemorative to celebrate the occasion. WWE is doing just that in a few ways, though one of them is a bit more direct than the other.
WWE has released two new pieces of merchandise related to the Undertaker. First is a custom WWE Championship, designed after the Winged Eagle version of the title. The title costs $499.99, though there are 100 deluxe editions which come with an urn shaped carrying case for $999.99. The second item is a line of custom chairs, costing $349 each, with designs featuring various WWE legends, such as Undertaker, Randy Savage, Triple H, John Cena, Ric Flair, Steve Austin and many more.

Undertaker has won some titles before. Check out a few of his victories:
Opinion: There is going to be a market for this kind of stuff and that’s why WWE makes it. Yes it is quite expensive, and some of these things seem ridiculous, but that is the kind of thing you are going to see in wrestling no matter what. It isn’t a bad thing and the products that WWE is selling do look amazing. It’s a bit out of my price range but they are rather cool to look at.
