This is a project I've been wanting to do in some form or another for a long time now, though the emphasis was never on playing cards...
Regardless of what era of Professional Wrestling you may or may not be a fan of, there's no denying the uniqueness of the 80's (and very early 90's) time period of what was once called the WWF. The wrestlers were larger than life, colorful and walked around the ring like mythical gods. They had a wide assortment of gimmicks and each character these men (and women) portrayed carried with it a brand. When you really look back on these people, they were basically comic book characters come to life... And this was a time before Superhero movies became the money-making beasts they are today.
I tune into the WWE nowadays and see nothing but black trunks and bad attitudes - which is totally fine if that's what the fans want. However, being the old fogy I am today, I long for a time when pro-wrestling was a family-friendly, campy affair.
And so, this is my love letter to the World Wrestling Federation of 80's and early 90's. I designed a deck of cards featuring all the greats from the era that made Professional Wrestling the phenomenon it is today.
... Honestly, I can't tell any of these current guys apart from one another. When did "trashy white guy in black undies" become the preferred template?
