WWE’s YouTube channel is back with another episode of the popular Canvas 2 Canvas series, this time featuring “The Great One” and Mrs. Foley’s Baby Boy.
For those who don’t know, Canvas 2 Canvas is an ongoing WWE short that follows famed artist Rob Schamberger as he recreates iconic moments from wrestling history in his unique style. Schamberger has already painted superstars like WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins, “The Viper” Randy Orton, popular lackey Damien Mizdow, and many others.
Schamberger was on hand throughout WrestleMania weekend at WWE AXXESS. He originally stepped into art full-time with a successful Kickstarter project that raised over $20,000 to paint every world champion in history (hello, Jack Swagger!), going back to 1905. From there, Canvas 2 Canvas evolved when Schamberger was eventually noticed by WWE. In a recent interview with Forbes, he recalled being “instantly hooked” the first time he saw Ric Flair on TV. His wrestling fandom has lived on ever since.
