I'm a wrestling geek. You all know that by now. What you don't know, though you can probably suspect, I have amassed quite the collection of wrestling shirts over the years.

My first live event, I believe, was back in 1993. I got a Bret Hart shirt. I still recall the design: black shirt with a sketched design of Bret's head, complete with trademark sunglasses. That was pretty neat, I thought, simply stated. They put pink and black hearts around it which wasn't bad because it was a cool shirt.

A few years later, I would go to another live event. I believe the main event was Bret Hart teaming with Shawn Micheals and Diesel-which was tenuous because Bret and Shawn were feuding at the time. I remember I bought a Shawn Micheals shirt. I'm not proud of it. Don't get me wrong, Shawn was and is an all-time favorite. As I recall, this shirt had glitter. That's right. It wasn't the manliest shirt. It was black, at least.

I haven't been to a live WWE event in years. That hasn't quelled my shirt purchases. I got back into the wrestling shirt game with Chris Jericho's Y2J Jerichoholic shirt. I would then get the Hardy Boyz long sleeve purple tee with their trademark H logo. Obviously I smell what the Rock is cooking so I would get several tees of his. My favorite was probably the white Just Bring It shirt. I wore that shirt out.

I got several DX shirts: an Are You Ready, Break It Down and their last one where it was just a spray-painted DX. I've always been a massive Chris Jericho fan. Earlier I wrote about the Jerichoholic shirt. I recently got the "You Just Made The List" shirt for my friend Chris and I for this past WrestleMania. Before that, I ordered a Dean Ambrose shirt with his initials in red from WWE.com. That was my most recent.

I said most recent. I should've said most recent ordered from WWEShop.com. I recently discovered that Hot Topic carries WWE shirts. I was elated! I saw Seth Rollins' KingSlayer shirt, scanned for my size and scooped it up. Just yesterday, I purchased the new Hardy shirt, Reborn By Fate. Luckily I have enough drawer space for what I call "The WWE Drawer". I also have an old-school "Macho Man" Randy Savage shirt I bought years ago at FYE.

I can't be the only wrestling shirt geek out there. I'm probably not finished, either. Hey, it's all part of being a fan, right? You should see my concert t-shirt collection!
