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.

I have to admit...the resemblances were uncanny. I was thinking Jeff Monson instead of DFW for George The Animal Steel.

Yeah, but then CP wouldn't have their obligatory poke at Dana.

CP is very hit or miss for me. I enjoyed this one though.
