Outside of Michael Jordan, were there any other sports stars that matched the level of stardom and popularity as the WWF wrestlers in the 80’s and 90’s? You should check your pulse if you’re not excited by wrestling of that era because pro wrestling was one of those acceptable guilty pleasures that brought us so much entertainment and drama. This upcoming Holiday 2012 pack features the all-new Jordan Aero Flight, but it’s also used as a vessel of tribute to some of the most electrifying men in sports entertainment history, using signature graphics and details to represent memorable wrestlers of the past. Below, we have a look at versions inspired by Jake The Snake Roberts, Legion of Doom, a red/yellow version that looks like a possible Hulk Hogan nod and a fourth that represents another superstar wrestler (likely Randy Savage or the Ultimate Warrior, given the pink and yellow colors). Your thoughts on this intriguing pairing? Check out the catalog preview shots of the Jordan Aero Flight ‘WWF Pack’ below and stay tuned for more info coming soon! Photos via us11

Retros definitely would have been better suited for this. At least the 4's. RIP Road Warrior Hawk and Macho Man Randy Savage.
Honestly this model doesn't look as bad as alot of the JB stuff I've seen. I've definitely been bad mouthing their designers lately but these seem to have potential plus the colors/concept is nice. But I feel like when I see real pictures of the shoe I'll be disappointed.
Can i get an undertaker... the rock.... razor ramon... shawn michaels... even stone cold steve austin wit da skull on da back wit an Austin 3:16 underneath... dam, why was everythin in da 90s so much better lol.. sports, shoes, wrestlin,even datin was easier
Now I know who they've been releasing Jordan Retros, all other JB's are SH*TTING UGLY!!! It's about time to stop releasing new ones. They are destroying Michael Jordan's reputation and taste for sneakers. Newer JB releases become uglier...and uglier....and uglier...and...uglier!!!
Would have been better doing this with dunks, huge ass jumpman on a pack like this makes no sense. A pink/black Excellence of Execution dunk with 3M metallic swoosh representing his shades and his skull/heart logo on the side would be the bomb.
the shoes are wack but the concept of the pack is cool. they should have made retros this theme instead of Aero Flight!
RIP Owen Hart, Hawk frum the L.O.D/Road Warriors & Macho Man Randy Savage (Ooooooooooh Yeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaahhh)... loved when wwf, ecw & wcw were all separate companies
