Wrestling Poster Designer Talks Designing For Chris Jericho, Making 'This Is Hope' Graphic

The 21-year old tells all about his ventures in graphic designing.

Abdulmalik Ali Al-Muwizri has designed posters for the likes of former IWGP Intercontinental Champion Chris Jericho and has created work that has been reposted on social media by Sasha Banks and Alexa Bliss. The Saudi Arabia native has been a fan of professional wrestling his entire life and kick-started his graphic designing venture in 2017 when he created a poster to promote Chris Jericho and KENTA's match at a WWE live event in Japan.

Al-Muwizri was then personally contacted by Chris Jericho and Jericho asked him could he make a poster for FOZZY's tour schedule. Al-Muwizri recalled being contacted by Chris Jericho during a recent interview with Arab News and talked about the opportunity to collaborate with Chris Jericho leading to more opportunities to get his work out to the masses.

“I received a notification saying: ‘Chris Jericho has followed you,’ and I was like ‘Come on, not another fake.’ The notification scared me because it had happened to me before — fake wrestler accounts following me,” Al-Muwizri said. “So I checked if it was real or not, and it was in fact the real Chris Jericho. I was so excited, I was geeking out. That was so incredibly thrilling, I can’t even put my feelings in words. I knew something special had just happened but I didn’t realize it fully at that time.”

Al-Muwizri also designed the "dream match" poster for AJ Styles versus Shawn Michaels at the 2017 Royal Rumble pay-per-view. The 21-year old had his work shared by Sasha Banks and Alexa Bliss to promote their singles match in Abu Dhabi. He stated that the 'This Is Hope' poster was all about sending a message to the young women of Abu Dhabi that anything is possible.

“I want to thank WWE for making that happen, and especially Adam Bigwood and Carlo Nohra. Without them, none of this would have happened and they deserve credit for it.” He said.

While mentioning Chris Jericho, he challenged Kazuchika Okada for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship at Dominion but was bested by "The Rainmaker". After the match, Jericho began brawling with Hiroshi Tanahashi who was at ringside on commentary.
