According to a wild claim from sports gossip blog TerezOwens, TapouT is preparing to announce a deal with the WWE, in which the lifestyle brand will serve as the exclusive sponsor for the WWE’s talent roster, similar to Reebok’s uniform deal with the UFC.
I know what you’re thinking: What does the world’s leading producer of novelty children’s beds have to do with professional wrestling? Obviously, TapouT was a ubiquitous presence in MMA beginning in the late ’90s, but the company’s reputation has faded in the wake of Charles Lewis’s death, assorted legal hassles, and a flood of competitors. Could TapouT really be transitioning to the WWE universe, in order to reach a brand new sub-demographic of douchebags?
