WCW World Championship Wrestling NES BoxArt Re-Imagined by Tom Kelly
An interesting thing I found over at PaletteSwap, a blog devoted to getting artists to redesign the cover art to some of the greatest games from yesteryear. I’m more of a fan of the entries that at least attempt to stay within the concept of creating an art-piece that could also work as retro box art, but every now and then, something like this comes around to where that idea doesn’t even matter.
Badassery like this needs to be celebrated.

“Stone Cold” Steve Austin versus Hulk Hogan tops the top 10 fantasy matches that never happened: August 8, 2012
It’ll never happen. Hogan is beyond being healthy enough to wrestle, and Austin likely won’t risk wrestling again (even if it is CM Punk). Other highlights of the list:
- “Macho Man” Randy Savage versus CM Punk (which cannot happen for obvious reasons)
- Legacy versus the Four Horsemen
- Sting versus the Undertaker
- Shawn Michaels versus The Rock.
- Bret “Hitman” Hart versus Kurt Angle
Pretty fun illustration seemingly featuring The Kliq as the babyfaces…I’m not too sure about that decision, but the artwork is great.
Hawk and Animal - The Road Warriors [NWA 1988]
This team was one of my favorites before I was even aware of professional wrestling as an actual thing on television! To me, they were the two gruff looking guys on the cover of WCW Wrestling for the NES, and I was immediately drawn to the box in the video rental store.
As a matter of fact, I’m pretty sure that renting that NES game was my first introduction into the world of professional wrestling.
