We Need To Talk About The New WWE Merch Available Only In Japan


Pro wrestling merch is mostly T-shirts. Sure, WWE has partnered with companies to bring us leggings, hats, and gaming chairs, and New Japan has a beauty mask that looks like the mask of a wrestler who spits poison, but wrestling merch tables and websites still overwhelmingly hawk T-shirts.

WWE Japan, however, has partnered with Rakuten to bring fans a variety of unique products. It’s all worth checking out, but I’ll cut to the chase: one of those products is a cover for a body pillow:


AJ Styles, Finn Balor, and Shinsuke Nakamura: your new wrestling waifu

That’s right, if you live in Japan (Rakuten only ships domestically) and already own a dakimakura, or body pillow, you can get a pillow case for it featuring your favorite WWE Superstar — provided your favorite WWE superstar is one of these three men who previously achieved success working for NJPW!

They only get more amazing and baffling when you see them with the description from the website (via Google Translate):


“Let’s get drunk with physical strength!” WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? How do you get that from a body pillow? Does the pillow make you strong??? I’ve been staring at this picture for the past 48 hours, and I still don’t know.
