Your problem is that there is someone special in your life that likes wrestling but you don’t know a wrist lock from a wrist watch. Don’t worry. Just follow my advice and you will be the most popular gift giver in the family.

Wrestling DVD Sets
The following list contains the DVD sets that came out in 2007 that every wrestling fan will be happy to see under the Christmas tree. Each link contains my review of that disc as well as a link that will allow you to find the lowest price for each item.

Wrestling Books
Please note that all of these books contain words and themes that parents might want to keep away from their children. However, some of them contain stories of triumph, determination, and charitable activities that you may want to instill in your children. I will gladly answer any email about age appropriateness. Just like with the DVD section, all links will lead to my review of the product.

  • Hitman by Bret Hart – This is the greatest wrestling book ever. Unfortunately, it is not available in America. However, you can order it from Amazon.ca. This would be a total surprise for any wrestling fan and will be well worth the effort to type.ca instead of .com.
  • A Lion’s Tale by Chris Jericho – This book follows Jericho’s tale of reaching his childhood goal, becoming a WWE Superstar. Please note that it ends with him reaching the goal and contains no stories of his time in the WWE.
  • Hardcore Diaries by Mick Foley – This is Mick’s third autobiography and details the events and backstage politics he encountered in his 2006 return to the ring.
  • Batista Unleashed by Batista – Because of his popularity with children, the book is written down to their grade level. However, the content in it might be objectionable to parents.

Video Games
The 2008 edition of the popular video game series SmackDown vs. RAW came out in November. This year’s edition features the addition of the ECW Brand and is available for the first time on several video game systems. The links for each system lead to a price comparison engine for the particular version of the game for that system. Please note that the game is slightly different between different systems.

Clothes
Wrestling clothing can be found at most department stores and at specialty stores like Spencer’s, Steve & Barry’s, Hot Topic, and WWE.com. As far as which wrestlers are the most popular, I would go with the following rule of thumb. Pre-teens love John Cena and Rey Mysterio. Once kids reach a certain age, they tend to favor Triple H, Batista, and the Undertaker.

Other Gift Ideas

  • Tickets to a live event – My wresting calendar tells you when the WWE is headed to your town.
  • WWE 24/7 – This cable channel offers classic wrestling action on-demand. It is not available in all locations.
  • WWE Magazine – A one-year subscription will keep the wrestling fan in your life checking their mail box all year long.
  • Championship Belts – Replica belts are very popular. They come in a variety of quality based upon if you want to spend a few bucks or hundreds. The most popular belt is the “Spinner” Belt which features a WWE logo in the middle which spins.
  • Toys – WWE action figures can be found anywhere that sells toys.
