In the world of wrestling, there are many folks who like to collect action figures of their favorite wrestlers. Recently some news came out regarding some new wrestling action figures, and among the wrestlers getting the figure treatment is that of ex-Every Time I Die guitarist Andy Williams.
For those who don’t know, Andy Williams is a professional wrestler! He is contracted with AEW (All Elite Wrestling), and performs under the name “The Butcher.” He is also part of a wrestling Tag Team, where he performs alongside fellow wrestlers The Blade and The Bunny. As reported by The PRP, each member of this tag team will be getting their own figure, as part of AEW‘s Unrivaled figure line.
You can check out a photo that features the designs for The Butcher, The Blade, and The Bunny below (these designs do not include paint for the figures).
What do you think of these figures? Do you collect wrestling memorabilia (and if you do, will you be adding these to your collection)? In the past, Williams shared that wrestling is like writing a song.
When it comes to other wrestling news, we talked to Municipal Waste singer Tony Foresta a couple months ago about his experience working for the WWE (and learned about his passion for wrestling). You can find the link to the full interview below, but here is what Tony had to say about how he first got into the sport.
“Well, I grew up in St. Petersburg, FL, that’s where I live now and that’s where the Thunderdome was and shit. But there was a lot of wrestling going on when I was a kid; it was like in the Golden Age. You know, [Hulk] Hogan lives down the street from me; he lived near my grandpa, like, they lived in the same neighborhood when I was little. So I would see Hogan all the time, and where I live right now is Macho Man’s neighborhood. He actually died like, not even a quarter of a mile from where I live right now, where I’m sitting right now. We would see Big Show at Blockbuster Video getting movies and shit. A lot of Wrestlers live here, I think [Dave] Batista lives over here and Gray Wyatt. Yeah, it’s just a wrestling town, I mean since I’ve lived here.
“[When I] fly out of the Tampa airport, I’ll see wrestlers there a lot; I see Ric Flair there, saw Rob Van Dam, you know, just flying out of fucking Tampa. Yeah, I don’t know if it was middle school or elementary school, but I remember being on TV on Friday Night Main Event, and like, Koko B. Ware is walking out and I was doing the Koko B. Ware dance as a little kid. I went back to school Monday thinking I was the fucking shit.”
