You know, things like this could be an interesting challenge for all those AI analytics companies. These images are almost always based on a photograph, but with different colors and different clothing (thankfully). It would be neat if some of those companies could identify the photograph based on the postures identified in the Photoshopped adaptation.

Granted there's a very big difference between checking an image against archived footage and checking against, say, all the images on the Internet.

If he was still alive, Ultimate Warrior would then go on an epic rant about video analytics being used by Hulk Hogan for evil.
