When WWE says that they need pirate costumes for WrestleMania then Jason Baker answers that call. The thing is that he didn’t get a ton of notice.
Baker, who is responsible for a ton of WWE props including for The Fiend, posted on Twitter to reveal that his team was responsible for constructing those awesome WrestleMania pirate costumes. This was also a request they made on the day of the show.
Got one of the greatest phone calls ever from @WWE the day of #wrestlemania : “Can you dress @HulkHogan & @TitusONeilWWE as Pirates?” Yes. Yes I can.
The Iron Sheik dragged Hulk Hogan in a pretty big way over that pirate costume. Others had many more reasons to mock the Hulkster in that costume. At least he looked like a pirate to go along with the WrestleMania theme at the time.
