Ever since January, when he first posted an Instagram video dressed in a Flex Kavana shirt, wrestling fans in Memphis and across the world have been wondering “Can you buy what The Rock is wearing?”
Now you can. Two t-shirts paying tribute to The Rock's Memphis wrestling heritage are the newest arrivals to his online Under Armour store.
The shirts feature Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson’s original ring name (Flex Kavana) and the year (1996) that he made his pro wrestling debut working for the USWA in Memphis. (Once Johnson was called up from Memphis to the then-WWF in November ‘96, Flex Kavana became Rocky Maivia.)
The People's Champion, who regularly bragged about how expensive his shirts cost during promos, is charging the people $35 plus shipping for the new tees.
Earlier this year on my radio show, I asked Jerry "The King" Lawler if he knew about the Flex shirts and if was going to make any royalties off them. The audio of that conversation can be found here.
