Kevin Steen at His Most Animated

Kevin Steen is already one of the most animated wrestlers on the indie circuit. His excess personality has to be one of the reasons why he's rumored to have signed a developmental contract with WWE. Some enterprising soul out there decided they were going to make Steen's animated nature literal by putting him in various Saturday morning cartoons. The site only has seven cels up right now, and I don't see any attribution to who is doing these. Regardless, that person has struck on the perfect combination of indie kitsch and nostalgia, and if wrestling fans, whether hardcore or casual, like more than anything, it's nostalgia.
