2017 saw WWE branch out into several different types of merch that aren’t t-shirts, including gaming chairs and ugly Christmas sweaters. A brand-new partnership with geek activewear brand Wild Bangarang keeps this trend going into the new year.
Wild Bangarang dropped the second phase of its officially-licensed WWE leggings collection on Friday, and it’s just the latest step on a long road to collaboration between the two brands. It started with Mickie James modeling some of their leggings on her Instagram, which led to Wild Bangarang making custom pairs for Dana Warrior, Beth Phoenix, Becky Lynch, and Alexa Bliss.
After much campaigning on the part of Wild Bangarang, their relationship with the WWE is such that they get to release officially-licensed merch. It’s a pretty good development in WWE making more products targeted at women and girls, and not just those who watch Total Divas or are of doll-playing age.
“Sure, the advancement of North American women’s wrestling through capitalism is cool,” you might be thinking, “but what about the leggings themselves? Are they any good?” That’s a great question. Because leggings are fashionable and fashion is art and art is deserving of criticism, here is our definitive ranking of the new WWE/Wild Bangarang leggings, from worst to best.
