WHBQ Memphis Wrestling (Light)Heavyweight American Apparel Hoodie (Black)
Ah, soon the oppressive humanity that has gripped the Memphis area like Killer Karl Krupp and his dreaded claw hold with be long gone—much like the evil Nazi dropped a loser-leave-town bout to the King.
Yes, as summer fades as fast as Downtown Bruno after a cheap 12-pack, the memories of Memphis wrestling march on with this classic WHBQ rasslin' logo, which was used for channel 13 station breaks and technical difficulties notifications, as well as during program director Lance Russell's upfront presentations to potential advertisers.
WHBQ's wrestling logo is printed on the heavyweight champion of sweatshirts, the Gildan 18500 Heavy Blend Hooded Sweatshirt: smooth as Jack Brisco, soft as George Gulas and stylish as Buddy Rogers, it's the coolest hoodie around for cool evenings.
This TRUE TO SIZE hoodie is supposedly lightweight, but I ordered one personally to test, and it's very warm...like I was being bear hugged by Joe LeDuc....but not nearly as tight as you would think with it being American Apparel.
Yes, it's a bit pricey, but all other zip-front hoodies are a joke compared this one. Sometimes you get what you pay for, folks. Think of it as the '70s era equivalent of the NWA World championship of hoodies.
