    Default WWE debuts "Rise Above Cancer" t-shirt line

    So the Susan G. Komen thing isn't being limited to John Cena this year, as nearly everyone on the roster now has their own "Rise Above Cancer" t-shirt, from Punk to Bryan to Cesaro and so on.

    I'm sure you're all rolling your eyes right now, but I think some of them look kinda cool.

    Why shouldn't they have a t-shirt for every superstar? Someone is more likely to buy the t-shirt if it's their favourite superstars version of that t-shirt and it makes money for a great cause, so why not?

    WWE did a great job with this campaign last year so I'm glad they're doing it again.

    I wouldn't wear them, but some of them do look good.

    I think The Miz & Ziggler ones look the best.

    From September 30 - December 31, 2013, WWE will donate to Susan G. Komen 20% of the retail sales price of Specialty Rise Above Cancer merchandise sold on WWEShop.com and at WWE live events.
    These cheap motherfuckers. Only 20 percent of merchandise that is specifically designed for the cause.

    Wow, that is horrible. The WWE can surely afford to give more from their profits than that.

    They should be giving 20% of all their merchandise during the month, not just these special items.

    With that said, it is still better than nothing.

    On the positive side, it's going until the end of the year, rather than just the end of the month.

    The ones that publicize their givings to charity usually give more than 20 percent. Combined that with the fact that these are limited time shirts designed specifically for the cause, yet they're keeping 80 percent of the proceeds, this is pretty greedy, I'd say. I'm sure they've made it to where they can still pull even, or even still make a small profit on every shirt, despite giving 20 percent away.

    That is good. That makes it better that it is only these items.

    They did also raise $1 million dollars for Susan G Komen last year.

    If they can do another million this year that would be awesome.

    And on another merchandise-related note, has anyone ever had more t-shirts in the span of a year than CM Punk? I mean, my god.

    They must be trying to captialize on Punk as much as they can before he leaves.

    I think many more shirt for him will come within the next year.

    Saw a picture recently of a shop selling different WWE shirts. Cena's, Ziggler's, and Ryback's all were sold out while Punk and Rock's still had piles on the shelves. Overload! Less really is more sometimes.

    The Henry one is awesome. While I do wish they would do something towards men's health issues as well, I'll never give them a hard time for supporting a good cause, so it's cool with me.

    I thought it was cool how WWE is acknowledging breast cancer awareness. Even having the middle rope pink. Very classy.

    I'm not a big fan of the all pink shirts but the black ones with pink incorporated into the are pretty cool. Punk's and Orton's are my favorites.

    I've actually worked with a number of charitable organizations and 20% going to Komen is actually pretty damn good. Remember, it's 20% of the PROCEEDS, not PROFIT. The E has to cover their own administrative, manufacturing and other costs. Some of the most highly regarded charitable organizations don't come anywhere near to contributing 20% of the proceeds to the actual cause.

    If the shirts were actually cooler, they would sell even better and make more money for the foundation. Some of these shirts are just horrible.
