Presenting my almost-daily thing that I do just for the hell of it, Two Packs a Day! Every weekday, I open two packs of WCW trading cards from 1991 and share my findings with you, complete with cheap, lazy jokes at the expense of the professional wrestlers involved. Enjoy!
So what did I find this time?
Well, I was going to approach this the way I usually do, but then I discovered something special about today’s packs. Today, I have the largest assortment of ridiculous facial expressions I have seen in a sampling of 24 cards.
Now, I’ve seen most of these cards before in previous packs, but not all in one place. I’d like to say it’s unprecedented, thus making me sound like one of those airheaded TV blowhards on the news shows, and maybe this happens more often than I have actually noticed, but let’s just go with it.
The Top 10 Facial Expressions of the 1991 WCW Trading Card Series (so far)
10. Arn “Double A” Anderson
This might be the saddest face I’ve ever seen on Arn Anderson. This is a man who usually shows all the emotions, from serious business to scowling.
9. Scott Steiner
It’s not everyday that you see “Big Poppa Pump” Scott Steiner, the Genetic Freak, the Big Bad Booty Daddy, crying like a little baby. But remember this was when he was only ‘roided up like your average wrestler, before he attempted to turn himself into a real life kaiju.
8. Butch Reed
Butch Reed is just a nice guy, even when he’s bodyslamming you.
7. Sid Vicious
6. Flyin’ Brian Pillman
5. Arn Anderson, again
My cat Hugo makes this face at me frequently. I don’t know what his deal is.
4. Sid Vicious redux
3. El Gigante
Turns out making this face was El Gigante’s best talent.
2. Ricky Morton
Don’t worry, Ricky. It gets worse.
1. Ric Flair
You probably can’t tell this from the cropped photo, but at this moment, Flair has his opponent in the Figure 4 Leg Lock. So what I’m saying is that this is the face Ric Flair makes when he’s winning.
