Very Rare ORIGINAL WWF Wrestling Poster for 1982 main event at the Providence Civic Center, in Providence, RI. These is the amazing concert style poster which is 17×26” and printed on heavy stock (cardboard). Used to promote the actual event around the proximity of SE New England. Just like boxing and concerts, these posters were displayed typically in commercial venues to attract local patrons, before the days of cable dominated TV and the internet. Few survived because they were either destroyed or incurred heavy damage .
This mint poster came directly from the Jack Witschi estate, who had about a half dozen “UNUSED” posters all from the early 80s.. . Folks from the southeastern New England area know of the historic Jack Witschi Sports Arena, in N Attleboro, MA which was THE place to be in the 1950s-60s-70s, on Friday nights for Championship Wrestling with all the great WWF Stars. When this iconic Sports venue burned down in 1979, Jack Witschi continued to promote his wresting events at the Providence Civic center into the mid 1980s.
