Even Harry Kane has previously talked about watching WWE when he was a kid. The Tottenham star is also compared to The Undertaker’s brother Kane.
What was the actual source of the photograph?
According to Profightdb (an online archive of wrestling matches), the photo was a screenshot from WWF Superstars Of Wrestling. The screenshot is from an April 8, 1992 match that saw Eric Collins and Mike Freedom facing The Beverly Brothers.
Collins has faced legends like The Undertaker, Bam Bam Bigelow, and Razor Ramon. Since he was defeated by Ramon in 1994, fans have not seen Collins in the wrestling ring. Although he never won, Eric Collins wrestled some high-profile matches on WWE.
