WWF Wrestlers Visit Acclaim Entertainment

From 1989 to 1999, Acclaim Entertainment held the contract for WWF/WWE. 
During this time period they released a slew of wrestling videos games on multiple 
different platforms (including the Wrestlemania Arcade Game, WWF in your House, 
WWF Royal Rumble, etc...) This past thanksgiving a close friend of the family, and 
former employee of Acclaim, surprised me with something amazing. A photo album 
of snap shots taken on set in 1995 of some of the biggest wrestlers of the time, hanging 
out in their offices and being tracked in front of a green screen for modeling the games.
Being a huge wrestling fan, I thought the photos were pretty much amazing on their 

own. But as an artist, I actually found them rather compelling.

You can see the rest of them on my flickr page here.

Thank you Aileen and Louis for sharing these!!
