A Pivotal Moment in Pro Wrestling History. This is the match where Onita legit injures his knee, despite a brief comeback in 1984, this essentially ends his traditional high-flying junior pro wrestling career. Until he starts a company called FMW in 1989. For the first half of the 1990’s Onita and FMW pushed the boundries of hardcore/garbage style wrestling. This new violent style resurrected his career and was less demanding on his knees. This match is the genesis of FMW. Without it, FMW may have never existed and Onita’s career and hardcore pro wrestling may have followed a different path in the world.

After illustrating Donald Glover’s Royalty series, he hit me up again to create the poster for his new album “Because The Internet”. The artwork ties directly into the narrative of his album and its screenplay (which are incredible — seriously, look and listen to this, it’s beautiful and crazy) — and while I was mostly given free reign, he handled all art direction personally.
I won’t be sellingthe poster personally, but you can get them at the mansion parties he’s throwing — more in the near future.
