Look at the barnet on Billy Jack Haynes! 

It’s actually his real hair as well. I just assumed it was a wig but he did an interview with Hannibal TV recently and said he’s got his hair like that to hide all the scars on his forehead from blading. He lifted the fringe and pulled his hair and all sorts to prove it was real. He must’ve just gone in the barbers and said “How much for the Anne Widdecombe cut?”

Someone on Reddit has noticed that the dates for 1992 line up with 2020, so he's using the WWF calendar from that year:

Does seem that way Rick. Someone else on Reddit went through the roster:

Spoilers for 1992 follow (only kidding, it's a bit long) 

The Rockers broke up in December of '91, which aired in January of '92. January was out of date already.

 

Kerry wrestled in the '92 Rumble and then basically disappeared until the summer where he wrestled on Superstars and wasn't really part of anything important. He would pass away in February of '93.

 

By March of '92 Warrior hadn't been IC champion for 2 years but more importantly Warrior quit in October of '91 for his shenanigans at SummerSlam. While under contract, he wasn't even working for the WWF when this picture was decided upon. He returned at Wrestlemania VIII.

 

Macho Man was normal, he turned back face and was back to being the Macho Man from the Macho King.

 

This was Slaughter's last year of regular wrestling as he officially retired at the end of '92.

 

Hogan was regularly performing for the WWF when his picture was chosen in late '91 but Hogan left the WWF after Wrestlemania due to the steroid trial and didn't return until Wrestlemania IX.

 

The Road Warriors were given the ventriloquist gimmick in early '92 which pissed them off so much they quit after Summerslam '92.

 

At the end of '91 Duggan helped Slaughter turn back face but by August of '92 he was a jobber putting over Yokozuna. This was probably his last big hurrah (save for the crap WCW put him through).

 

It's interesting they put just Earthquake on here as he had been teaming with Typhoon through the second half of '91 and into the end of '92. He would have been a team by the time the picture was chosen.

 

Ugh, one of the worst period's of Undertaker's career. October of '92 was during the period they were throwing every random mook they could at him to make him look like a tough guy. Culminating in Giant Gonzales at Wrestlemania IX.

 

In the fall of '91 Roberts became a heel and teamed up with Undertaker, feuding with Savage up until the Rumble. He wrestled at Wrestlemania VIII and that was it. By November of '92 he had been gone for over 6 months.

 

At the fall of '91 DiBiase's role as a singles star had been diminished due to age and health, and in '92 he formed a team with IRS, Money Inc which was very successful. He retired at the end of '93.

Those calendars were always crazy out-of-date. I'm pretty sure I had the 1993 one pictured here and, if memory serves, it had Ricky the Dragon Steamboat in it, who hadn't competed since 1991.

Jake Roberts, 1975.

From the Tenta school of "born looking 35."

He looks as old then than he does now, which given what he's been through is pretty incredible.

I remember getting the 1998 or 1999 calendar as a Christmas present and it had Sable on the front cover lying almost naked on a beach and some of my family were a bit surprised that I'd got that as a present...had to show the them the inside of the calender to prove it wasn't porn.  They were much happier when they realised I would have half naked men on my wall instead.

We did this in the office in 2018 with the 1990 one. It had a number of random dates written in it, including ‘Mom’s birthday’ on May 9th. So we naturally celebrated it with drinks and cakes.
 

That Landmark one pictured above is odd, but not that surprising. It’s an official Titan Sports product from 91 with credits to photographer Tom Buchanan. There were a number of products released in none USA markets that were out of date based on release date (including canada which I assume it’s from). For example the red sticker book, the German version and the Slovenian versions (Deni Marst cover) of the book are the exact same year, but because they were released several months apart, and due to contracts ending, they changed a few pages at the very last minute. So some of the stickers don’t align with each other, where as most do.

Early 90’s WWF Merch for sale in other markets is just odd, due to distribution time scales.

That Hogan pic on the cover is from the Slaughter feud in Spring 1991 at the latest too. Description of it in this listing below also has Sid and Bulldog who were gone before 1993.

Even worse, both Sid and Bulldog were in WCW in 1993 so they were highlighting the competition.
