Did you also do the 92 one? I recall it being basically the same, but with Ric Flair on it.

Just occurred to me that the only people in this picture who are still alive are Hogan, Warrior, Slaghter, Animal and Tugboat...

Scratch Warrior off the alive list, he's dead now too.

I used to sit and just look at this painting on the VHS cover of that Royal Rumble... Oh! I had it as a poster too, just remembered - it came with the video!

Absolutely wonderful work.

I love both of your Royal Rumble posters.

I really wish I could find one to put on my wall now, they were just amazing.

Also want to add that I wish WWE would hire you again now. I mostly just want to see CM Punk painted by you.

Oh my God, I can't that you're the one who drew this. I must rented this at least a dozen times. I liked your art before but now I love it. It's also a very sad that 7 seven of the men on the poster aren't with us anymore.

I'm wondering why they're tromping through a sewer with streetlights, or did a water-main break? :lol:

Best RR VHS cover ever. Did you also do the 1992 and is it posted anywhere?

The 92 is essentially the same painting with a few different wrestlers and background, which made it REALLY boring to paint (and it shows in the finish). Not as well done as the '91, but I'll post it when I have the time to find it.

Growing up, the 91 and 92 RR posters/vhs covers were my favorite images of all time.

Jusko awesome artwork, glad you posted it. By any chance did you do the drawing for the Royal Rumble 92 also? Cause pretty much the same as this one. If so I wish you could post it.

Man your painting is truly inspirational! As a child, I would stare at this ad for a long time and wonder how long it would take to do something like it. I have always tried to emulate your detail. Your work is phenomenal! I was so excited to see the original work on here! YOU'RE THE MAN! Keep it up!
