WWE has teamed up with Goldin to release a one-of-one “Billionaire Bucks” t-shirt and billion-dollar bill signed by venerable WWE Chairman Vince McMahon.
“We are honored to be working with WWE for our first-ever auction featuring fan experiences,” said Ross Hoffman, CEO of Goldin in a press release.
“WWE has built a brand that is constantly innovating and providing the best to their fans, and we could not be more proud to help provide a new way to engage with their passionate fans. And what better way to do so than to offer experiences with storied WWE Legends Triple H and The Undertaker!”
Through this partnership, fans will have an opportunity to meet The Undertaker through a rare “WrestleMania Experience,” which includes two tickets and a behind-the-scenes meet & greet.
The WWE-Goldin partnership will also give fans a chance to win an elusive tour through WWE’s Warehouse, led by WWE Executive Vice President Triple H. In 2014, WWE’s Warehouse was featured in its own YouTube series, which showcased rare items such as the original Million-Dollar Championship, the iconic SmackDown Fist and the Lady Liberty replica from WrestleMania 29 at MetLife Stadium. The WWE Warehouse was also featured throughout the 2021 series WWE’s Most Wanted Treasures, which aired nine episodes in its first season on A&E.
New McMahon merchandise was created specifically for the auction, which opens today, and an additional unsigned bill and “Billionaire Bucks” t-shirt will be available for auction during SummerSlam at Allegiant Stadium this Saturday, August 21.
The following SummerSlam memorabilia items will also be available for auction:
- The barbed-wire baseball bat Ric Flair used in his victory against Mick Foley in the “I Quit” match at Summerslam 2006 (LOT 23)
- The shears Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake and Hulk Hogan used in their 1989 match victory against “Macho Man” Randy Savage and Zeus (LOT 24)
- The night stick Big Boss Man used in his match against Koko B. Ware at Summerslam 1988 (LOT 25)
- The Money in the Bank briefcase Randy Orton cashed in on Daniel Bryan to become WWE Champion at SummerSlam 2013 (LOT 26)
- The arena banner used at SummerSlam from 1992-1997 (LOT 27)
- The ring skirt used at SummerSlam from 1989-1997 (LOT 28)
- The ring skirt used at SummerSlam in 1998 (LOT 29)
WWE’s partnership with Goldin is the latest means for the promotion to monetize its rich catalog of collectible items. Earlier this year, the promotion announced its first-ever NFT ahead of WrestleMania 37, which featured various rare collectible items in honor of The Undertaker. These items were also available for auction, with the minimum bid for the platinum tier set at a minimum of $10,000.
WWE SummerSlam airs this Saturday, August 21, from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nev. and will also stream live on the WWE Network through Peacock.
