Someone Bought This: The revised Survivor Series 1993 poster reveals a fascinating secret!

In his excellent Survivor Series Substitutes induction, Art wrote about the times when a wrestler or wrestlers would have to be substituted for others in the history of the Survivor Series.

In the Comments section for that induction, Crapper Saint Stryfe posted a comment about the 1993 Survivor Series poster that was too funny for me not to feature on the site:

I’m saddened there was no reference to the redone art for the Survivor Series poster with the All-Americans versus the Foreign Fanatics.

After Tatanka (Buffalo) Went down, they redrew it with the Undertaker…. doing Tatanka’s war dance. Holding a fork and a knife. Found it on the cover of the Coliseum Home video release:

I love that they drew The Undertaker in the exact same War Dance pose that Tatanka was in!

So I guess this means The Undertaker is part Native American?

Actually he sort of looks like he’s doing The Funky Chicken.

Undertaker! Buffalo! Chicken!

    to me it looks like they killed and are about to eat Yokozuna

      That is the subtex of the subtle imagery, yes. 🙂

    • Saint Stryfe says:

      Even more frightening: they had a second version of the poster with the Foreign Fanatics – and they were gathered around a turkey dressed like Lex Luger. Yoko is about to chow-down on turkey. dressed like Lex Luger. With CHOPSTICKS.

      And I sadly need to point out how odd Yoko’s pecs are. Look at them. I’ll apologize later.

      Also, how odd is Jacques’ face here? It looks too tiny, like it got squished down. You can barely see Pierre (the Clique was all ready against him!). At least Borgia looks okay. ish.

    I feel really stupid having never noticed the diaper on the turkey. Maybe I was always distracted by the murderous look on Lex’s face. He seems more intent on making some good long pig out of Rick & Scott. Perhaps the long awaited revenge for having lost to them at the first Super Brawl.

    Actually, Taker is part Native American. Truth in joke.

  5. Geoff says:

    Yokozuna at that time was a big turkey. I would’ve taken a big gibblet and a thigh myself but I didn’t because his thighs are way too big and I didn’t want to seem glutonous (sp). The rest of the WWF/E roster were all just leftovers and the dessert was Trish. I know I’m leaving out Gobbeldy Gooker but we’ve already lam-basted him enough.

    For the second time, comment I made has become an induction on Wrestlecrap, specifically on Someone Bought This.

    I am both honored and horrified.
