What’s buzz-worthy: This Walmart-only exclusive product includes a hit in every box and is solely focused on the female stars of the WWE, offering a bit of a history lesson as the company focuses on its women’s division like never before.
One advantage that World Wrestling Entertainment has with its merchandise is that autograph signings with the talent don’t typically involve a middle-man or an agent — it’s part of the deal and the wrestlers get compensated for their signings.
As in a cut of their merchandise sales.
