Old-School Professional Wrestling Event Posters; Listen, You Pencil-Necked Geeks!!

Did you get the reference in the title of this post? “Classy” Freddie Blassie FOR THE WIN!!

Let’s reminisce and go back to the days of when advertising posters for live professional wrestling events were simple, to-the-point, and weren’t focused on a single wrestler.  Back in the day when the poster designers used the simplest of typography strategies to establish the show’s (and the poster’s) hierarchy — which may look ugly to some — that works in its own vintage, antique-style way. Either way, here’s a trip via the way-back time machine called “The Internet,” and I hope you enjoy this series of classic professional wrestling posters!
