51 Sexiest Cosplay Outfits From Comic-Con EVER

Cheesy WWF Promo Photos of the ’80s/’90s, And Their MMA Counterparts [GALLERY]

Our friends at With Leather just put together an incredible/awful collection of cheesy WWF promo photos from the late ’80s and early ’90s, and as we were browsing through some of these gems while drinking our coffee this morning, we couldn’t escape the eerie feeling that we’ve seen these faces elsewhere. The same snarling mugs, the same wacky personas — it’s obvious that some of our favorite MMA fighters owe a debt to these guys. So follow us back to pro wrestling‘s golden age, and allow us to make some startling comparisons.

Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart was the original…
Hillbilly Jim was the original…
Legion of Doom were the original…
Junk Yard Dog was the original…
Ultimate Warrior was the original…
The Honky Tonk Man was the original…
Tatanka was the original…
Big Boss Man was the original…
George “The Animal” Steele was the original…

    LOL I had that LOD picture when I was a kid.

    Started out right on, then was stretching it a bit, and finally at the end hit it perfectly, minus all the f-words.

    Holy Shit - that cod-piece on Tatanka looks painfully tight. Also - I think only 2 or 3 of the wrestlers shown is still alive. Coincidence?

    BG is really turning out some good stuff lately. I'm guessing Baby Goldstein is sleeping through the night regularly?

    They'll always be the NWA Road Warriors to me. Scaffold Match FTW!
  6. SnakeJake Says:

    Fri, 08/31/12 - 08:57


    I think only 3 of them are dead. Road Warrior Hawk, JYD and Big Boss Man. But I could be wrong. The day is not over yet.
  7. MoshuDragon Says:

    Fri, 08/31/12 - 09:00


    More like Animal Steele = Dave Herman

    Superfly Jimmy Snuka = Christine cyborg Santos

    Fri, 08/31/12 - 09:50


    Are you telling me George the Animal Steele is still alive? I thought they found him dead of a turn-buckle over-dose back in 1998. But I could be wrong. The day is not over yet.
  11. The12ozCurls Says:

    Fri, 08/31/12 - 09:52


    BTW - Does anybody else want the Taxi Cab in the "Premium Rush" advertisement to just plow the dude on the bike so we can stop watching the commercial in the top right box.
  12. 2DaDeath Says:

    Fri, 08/31/12 - 09:55


    Dont forget Yokozuno was the original... every Japanese fighter in the UFC.
  13. The12ozCurls Says:

    Fri, 08/31/12 - 10:11


    Mr. Fuji > Yokozuna
  14. The12ozCurls Says:

    Fri, 08/31/12 - 10:13


    What about those poseus "The Powers of Pain" that blatantly ripped off the RW/LOD. Those roid monkeys (The Warlord & The Barbarian) sucked.
  15. ReX13 Says:

    fucking WORD.
  16. Dirt Says:

    Man, Look again @ Big Boss Man, That is Rich Franklin!!!
  17. The12ozCurls Says:

    Fri, 08/31/12 - 10:50


    The fact that we both remember this random shit as well as Billy Jack Haynes, Cpl. Kirchner, Iron Mike Sharpe, Conquistador #1 AND #2 - just solidifies the fact that we are "old fucks." Whatever - At least I don't have gray pubes . . . . . yet
  18. Fletch the V Stretch Says:

    Fri, 08/31/12 - 12:51


    Yes, I actually saw this masterpiece. And it sucked sweaty ballsac. Why you ask? Because the other movie I wanted to see was sold out and there were no other movies showing at that time.
  19. Fletch the V Stretch Says:

    Fri, 08/31/12 - 12:51


    Love this.
  20. Fletch the V Stretch Says:

    Fri, 08/31/12 - 12:52


    I tried guessing everyone before looking at their UFC counterparts. I also had Animal Steele pinned as Dave Herman.
  21. O Chan Says:

    Is it me, or does it look like Wes Sims is pulling out for a money shot in his photo?

    This might not have blown up the comments section, but it's a real treat.
  23. The12ozCurls Says:

    Fri, 08/31/12 - 01:45


    I can't believe that the re-release of "The Notebook" was sold out. Pretty shocking actually.
  24. ReX13 Says:

    Fri, 08/31/12 - 04:22


    Right before i enlisted in '08, i was working at a gas station in southeastern NC. i sold cigarettes to Ricky Morton. He still had the exact same hairstyle, looked like shit, and he's apparently still wrestling.

    Holy Shit! Randy the Ram-esque. Life imitating art or vice versa. Tell me he smoked non-filtered lung darts. If he smoked Capris or Virginia Slims I will throw up.
