This week, Homage concludes its “Road to WrestleMania” countdown with its most surprising t-shirt design of the entire series. You see, every Monday for the past nine weeks, Homage has introduced a new WWE t-shirt commemorating the matches, the wrestlers and the memories of WrestleMania. To end the series, Homage has released a tee based on last year’s WrestleMania XXXII, which is not all that surprising. What is surprising is the moment Homage chose to honor – Zack Ryder’s winning of the Intercontinental Championship.
WrestleMania 32 took place at Cowboys Stadium on April 3rd, 2016 and attended by 100,000 rabid WWE fans, including The Blot, making it the largest WrestleMania of all time! While the show featured many big names – The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Shawn Michaels, John Cena – the biggest moment came from the promotion’s biggest underdog, Zack Ryder.
The WWE held a 7 man Ladder Match for the Intercontinental Championship that year, and nobody gave Zack Ryder much of a chance. After all, the long-time cult hero was only even in the match as a replacement. But just when it looked like The Miz was about grab the title, Ryder scrambled up the ladder, sent Miz crashing down and pulled off the upset. The 100,000 in attendance erupted in cheers and “woo woo woos”. After nearly a decade in the WWE, Zack Ryder had his WrestleMania moment.
The WrestleMania 32 “Zack Ryder Wins” t-shirt is available now, in sizes XS-3XL, at the Homage online store for $32. What makes this t-shirt extra special is that it’s super limited edition! Only 100 Zack Ryder t-shirts have been printed, and when they’re gone, they’re gone forever. Additionally, each tee will come with a poster commemorating that moment, signed by the wrestler!
