Advertising Tie-Ins - August, 1998

By Bill and Wade

It's extremely difficult for professional wrestlers to get mainstream publicity, much less make some extra dough doing commercials. Hulk Hogan got to do a deoderant commercial, Booker T did one for 1-800-COLLECT, and King Kong Bundy for computers.

While I'm sure it worked out well for them, I always thought it was unfortunate that the products didn't directly tie in to their persona. I felt they were missing an extraordinary opportunity.

So, in the interest of helping your favorite wrestler make a few extra bucks, here are some advertising tie-ins that we came up with while watching a really boring edition of Thunder.
