The Art of Wrestling – Orton’s New Gas Mask

I may still be baffled as to why a gas mask is Randy Orton’s new symbol, but there’s no denying the fact that it is with Orton’s second shirt.  The shirt certainly looks better on the previous link than the close up of it.  I can’t get the thought out of my head that it looks like the WWE decided to slap the gas mask over the Unibomber’s sketch.  The WWE did a nice job using chiaroscuro to make this image pop since it’s a black image on a dark grey shirt.  The white highlights really make this shirt which is why the close up is so disappointing.

If Randy Orton starts wearing sunglasses like that, I'm going to start to worry about a box of explosive poop being delivered to my condo.

On the back, the design is decided off center but because of poor quality of the image it is hard to tell if the shirt is weighted properly.  It reminds me a bit of many of the Affliction t-shirt designs that are so popular today.  I would have just centered the white RKO lettering but that’s a minor quibble with a shirt that is well designed and keeping with a new theme for Randy Orton.  Now if the WWE would get to work on a Priceless t-shirt, they’d really be in business. – Kevin
