#SummerSlam: A Look At WWE Athletic Wear

As the wrestlers of the WWE are gearing up for the big event, we thought we’d take some time to discuss professional wrestling underwear. There is a huge difference between the wrestling garments you may have worn in high school and those worn in the WWE or other professional wrestling establishments.

For instance, WWE wrestlers are more or less serving up broadway with body slams so their gear needs to be just as fashionable as functional. Most of the outfits are made of some sort of spandex, but they come in many different styles. Sometimes you will see a wrestler hit the ring in a traditional singlet, as Kurt Angle,a former Olympian, once did (these are not your average Modus Vivendi singlets). You also get some athletes like John Cena who wear Under Armour under their casual looks or pants. But, it seems, that the brief reigns supreme in the professional wrestling world. The brief has been worn by the likes of The Rock, Triple H, and Darren Young.

Check out the gallery of our favorite WWE apparel below and let us know in the comments below or by tweeting @underwearexpert if you prefer the classic singlet or the wrestling brief.
