It's funny, decades later, to think of X-Pac, Razor Ramon, Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart as a New Generation but in the early to mid 90's they were exactly that. The major stars of the 80's were moving aside as a whole new energy and excitement came along with these four competitors and their entire generation, changing the game forever.
It's an interesting time of transition from how things were with the big 80's to how things were about to be in the Attitude Era, but for a time the wrestlers who were about to be the major superstars of the next decade were still learning how to be those top stars.
I thought it'd be fun to do a Select Series collection of some of these faces, from X-Pac aka the 1-2-3 Kid who debuted during the New Generation, to Razor Ramon who reinvented himself in a major way, to Shawn Michaels now hungry to be the top star and of course THE top star in Bret Hart. Also having some fun with the shared background between all four of them, when arranged as above it makes the neon entrance from that time!
Also, all Select Series waves in 2021 will have the chance of one of these original 4" x 6" paintings of The Fiend being inserted! I made 24 total, 17 on the black background and 7 on the red. Freaky-looking, aren't they?
Set 1 of every wave will come with one guaranteed and then there will be one more in each wave inserted randomly. Especially right now buying a piece of original art may not be the easiest thing to do, but I want more of my collectors to experience what it's like. Even though I used a stencil to make these, they're all slightly different and unique. So the one you get is The One.
