I need these WWF legends minimalist posters in my home

From Etsy and artist Bam!it’sBERNIE come perhaps the most amazing pieces of art I’ve ever seen and a collection that certainly needs to be on display in my home: A WWF legends minimalist poster set.

As adults, we can’t have those old Hulk Hogan "Hulk Rules!" posters adorning our walls. But with these, we can relive a bit of our childhood, bask in that loving nostalgia, and still pass them off as pieces of art.
Most avid fans of 80′s and 90′s wrestling would attribute its success not only to the wrestlers’ ability to entertain the crowd, but the spirit of the unique, well-branded characters compared to culture’s current indistinguishable counterparts.

The WWF Legends Minimalist Poster Series became a challenge to tap into this theory to its rawest form and create designs that evoke the trademark personalities of the golden era of wrestling entertainment.

Each poster features the simplest of visual elements that are iconic to the respective wrestler, as well as their signature finishing move. Aged element for vintage/retro feel to fit with the appropriate time reference, and finished off with my BAM moniker insignia.
Okay, so maybe you would have to display these in your basement, garage, or subsequent mancave, but in a nice frame there is a lot of potential here. The posters are $20 each, or you can grab the whole 12 piece set for $200.
