The Art of Wrestling – Slick Ric

Ric Flair doesn't strut like this. Yes, I'm an architectural nerd.

TNA has finally started to produce some new shirts for their “new” talent. At the top of that list, especially in the Bucks County, PA court, name-wise is Ric Flair. His new shirt is titled “Stylin’ & Profilin’ “.

On the back of the shirt, TNA went non-creative. It just says “Stylin’ “, below that a smaller “And” and on the bottom “Profilin’ “. “Stylin’ ” & “And” are in a bland white text that only has a hint of purple (or possibly silver) in the upper right hand corner of the N. “Profilin’ ” has purple in the P, R, I & N. They shouldn’t have half assed the purple striping. If you’re going to include additional colors, there needs to be a pattern, a reason for it and it should be part of all of the words.

On the front of the shirt, we get some real entertainment. The main graphic is a male symbol. The only thing that could have made it worse was if the arrow symbol pointed down. The words “It Takes a Certain Flair…To Be…” are inside the circle of the male symbol. First off, there’s no reason to have “…” in between “Flair” & “To Be” other than to highlight your lack of knowledge of the English language. For some reason, they added a second circle inside of the male symbol which only helps to leave less room for the words “The Man” in the middle. The text, male symbol and the interior circle all are completely white which makes the highlights of purple on the rear of the shirt even more asinine.

TNA couldn’t have made a worse t-shirt. It’s awful. If someone buys this shirt, they should be held down and branded with an “S” for stupid on their ass. Don’t just take my word for the level of awfulness of this shirt either. Look at the reviews below the shirt but some of the highlights are: “r u serious?? i would think you would sell this kinda shirt at a flea market, not the tna website!! Booooooooooooooo!” and “Boooooooooooo….this would keep out of the arena, i wouldn’t want to get near it !!” These fans may not have a grasp of the English language like TNA, but at least I won’t have to brand them. – Kevin

    My favorite thing about that “not the TNA website but a flea market” comment is that those two are basically the same thing. And the font is rotten; it’s Copperplate Gothic, which has been available on Windows since humans lived in grass huts that didn’t have windows. Ghetto-ass T-shirt that no one put any time into. -E

    My favorite thing about the shirt is that the only person they could find to model it was a guy who usually walks around the theme park in a Shrek costume to hide his awful arm sleeve tattoos.
