Nicholas now has his own shirt up on the WWE store!

What's the story?

Nicholas created a record at WrestleMania by becoming the youngest champion in WWE history, when he teamed up with Braun Strowman to defeat The Bar. Now, he's become the youngest WWE superstar ever to have his own shirt up on the WWE Shop.

Braun Strowman went to Twitter and congratulated the young lad on this incredible feat. Nicholas seemed thrilled with his brand new WWE milestone.

In case you didn't know...

At WrestleMania 34, Braun Strowman did not have a partner going into his RAW Tag Team Championship match with The Bar. He would pick a child from the audience, Nicholas, and go on to capture the RAW Tag Team Championships with him.

Nicholas would give up the Championships on the very next day, owing to a conflicting schedule. He was in the fourth grade and couldn't defend his title belt. Nicholas and Strowman were stripped of the title at this point, and a Tag Team Eliminator tournament was announced.

The heart of the matter

Nicholas' shirt commemorates his title victory with Braun Strowman at WrestleMania 34. It is a pretty cool design and should fly off the shelf very soon indeed.

What do you think of these shirts?

It would be cool to see Nicholas associated with WWE in some way when he does grow up. After all he did get to have a WrestleMania moment, something that so many superstars never do!

What's next?

We don't think that Nicholas will be seen on WWE TV for a while. To remember Nicholas and his incredible in-ring prowess, you only have the WWE Network and this t-shirt. Let's hope that he returns for another cameo down the line someday!

Author's take

I wasn't the biggest fan of the Nicholas angle when it happened. In retrospect, it was a great talking point and I doubt any major harm was done.

Let's hope The Bar regains their momentum on SmackDown Live by claiming the Tag Titles.
