Why paint a Wrestling Legends Tribute? For the passionate wrestling fans who enjoy the charismatic, over the top characters, the opportunity to go and sit within yards of their favorite superstars while they perform their craft, and most of all, the competitive spirit. Pro Wrestling has been a staple in many American homes over the past several decades, and is equally as popular in other countries including Mexico and Japan. Beginning in 1920, the sport rose to prominence in the United States after World War II, the First Golden Age of professional wrestling in the United States, during which Gorgeous George gained mainstream popularity. Then again with the advent of cable television in the mid 1980s, there followed a Second Golden Age as the United States experienced a professional wrestling boom, with protagonists such as Andre the Giant, Randy Savage, Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan and Ultimate Warrior. Pro Wrestling enjoys a strong following yet today and Wrestling Legends Tribute is sure to be enjoyed by many excited wrestling fans.
