I’ve drawn Will Ospreay a few times with stuff for What Culture, but I never feel like I can get him right for some reason, so I thought I’d try again.
Adam Page is one of the requests I got when I was asking around on Instagram who to draw, and I think it was a good one. He’s got a lot of potential and is only 25…I think he’s got a lot in his future.
I feel like BJ Whitmer is one of those really good but underrated wrestlers. I haven’t seen a ton of his work, but from what I have seen, there’s never been a bad match. Plus the way he can get a crowd to absolutely hate him is pretty impressive!
i know he’s shaved bald nowadays, but for some reason it never looked right when I drew him that way. So here’s a little bit younger BJ Whitmer haha.
I’ve always liked Jimmy Jacobs, so here’s a new drawing of him. Wish he was still wrestling, but I’m glad he’s got a backstage job with the WWE. He’s too smart not to be doing something there!
When the WWE announced Nigel was coming in as an announcer, I was excited. He was one of my first favorites in ROH when I started watching it. So when he was announced as coming in, I started watching some old matches online…Man, it’s a shame he had to retire from the ring so early, because Nigel was so good. I got to see him live as champion a bunch of times, and he never disappointed. One of my favorite matches was against El Generico. You knew Generico wasn’t going to be the one to end his long title reign, but the match was still great.
I think the biggest shame about him not being able to wrestle any more is that both Daniel Bryan and Nigel McGuinness are both in the WWE right now and neither one can wrestle. God damn, that would have been great to see. I got to see that live in ROH once or twice and it would have been amazing to see it again.
The first time I remember seeing Kyle O’Reilly it was at a Ring Of Honor show. I noticed Davey Richards in the crowd staring at him in a way that looked like he was thinking “you better not fuck this up kid.” I’m sure that’s not what he was thinking, but he certainly had that look to him. So I figured “well I guess I should pay attention here.” Turns out he was pretty good, and he has only gotten better. I’m a fan of his, and I think we’re all wondering where he’s going to end up.
