Every PPV poster comes out and everyone jumps around and makes up rumors based on the poster. When even WWE has says the posters are made a couple months ahead of time so the image really is just a promtional thing. SO just casue the poster shows something don't jump into the lies.
Example, one year a poster had a big picture of Kane wiht the Undertaker symbol in his eye and everyone made rumors that Taker was going to team back up wiht Kane or help Kane in some way. And when the ppv came around, they had no interaction at all.
Another example is, back when WWE had Vengence for the first time in December, and the posters and promos had HHH all over them. HHH was out with his injury at this time and everyone made "reports" that HHH would show up, again like the first example, HHH was no where on the ppv.
Cool poster, I am going to have to get it from the bar down the street when they get it. But as people have said, the promo poster usually doesn't have much to do with the PPV. It used to, but now with this day-to-day booking WWE has, they don't mean much.
January 4th 1999 - The day WCW injected itself with 10 gallons of Liquid Anthrax...AKA...The day Hogan "Defeated" Nash to win the WCW title in front of 40,000.
Saw this ad in the new Raw magazine. I know it means nothing becuase they're done months in advance, but I think the coolest thing about it is that Shelton and Charlie are looking at Kurt like they're about to turn on him. Wicked.
I just think that it's awesome that Shelton and Charlie are on a poster for a PPV. It's at least if not more exciting than when RVD was on that poster a few PPVs back. Looking ahead, maybe some day we will see Jeff Hardy on a poster. *Right*!!
Definite points go to SchippeWreck's comment about Tag Team Angle's evil eyes toward leader Angle. That is definitely a nice touch of creepy ambiguity.
(edited by socetew on 30.3.03 0324) A la la la la, I can't hear you.
That's exactly why I posted the poster in the first place.
I of course know that the posters don't mean anything, but just the eeriness of the expressions on the faces of Team Angle caught my eye. Plus below there are three shadows on the stage, which look like Kurt and Team Angle.
I know posters are made in advance, but I just wonder why the poster was made that way -- like what was the original intentions for Backlash?
Awesome poster too...didn't expect to see Benjamin and Hass on there.
A few thoughts: This fascination Vince has had recently with wrestlers using handcuffs and blackout matches makes me wonder if Vince is watching World Class Championship Wrestling tapes from late '87/early '88.
