The New Boy Toy

Back in the earlier days of Thunders Arena, there was always one wrestler who was what I called the "Boy Toy" -- a smaller wrestler who often was no more than just a play thing for the bigger muscle studs at TA.  The Boy Toy often found himself high in the air, pressed overhead by the many powerful bodybuilders on the TA roster.  Older examples of the Boy Toy included Tak and Angel.  But I thought TA had moved beyond this gimic, and the Boy Toy character was no more.  Well, the other day while looking through some of my favorite photos from TA, I had a "holy crap!" moment.  It hit me that Blayne is the new Boy Toy!  How could I have missed this?  Blayne is no newcomer at Thunders Arena, and he's been gorilla pressed by some of TA's finest.  I am a professionally trained blogger, so I need to start paying better attention to these kind of things!

Ethan is Strong

Here are some more pics from 88Westling's awesome match featuring Rex Bedford and Ethan Andrews.  My last post was about Rex whose name means "king."  Today we're going to highlight Ethan, because I don't want to give you the wrong impression that this match was nothing more than Rex tossing Ethan about the ring.  No sir, Ethan is no one's whipping boy!  His name, by the way, means "strong" (or at least that's what came up when I googled it), and "strong" is definitely the right adjective for our Ethan Andrews.  He's strong enough to get into the ring to fight King Rex for the title belt, which is a tough feat for any mere mortal.  And from the pictures above, you can see that Ethan is physically strong.  He knows how to make another wrestler suffer, and suffer indeed did Rex at the hands of strong Ethan.  Why, Ethan is . . . well, he's . . . he's . . . oh fuck it!  That's enough about Ethan.  I want to get back to how awesome Rex is!

Ethan may be strong, but Rex is no pushover himself.  Ethan finds this out the hard way many times when bad boy Rex slams his sorry ass.  Yes, Ethan may be strong, but is he strong enough to overthrow the King?  King Rex isn't going to turn over the throne without a fight.

King Rex honors his fans by declaring today another Backbreaker Monday!

Rex is King

A couple of weeks ago, 88Wrestling was kind enough to send me a preview of its new King of the Ring 2 match featuring Rex Bedford and Ethan Andrews.  While I am a big fan of Rex, my views on Ethan Andrews are somewhat lukewarm, so I guess I was not in a real hurry to watch it.  But now that I finally got around to it, holy shit!!  This match blew me away!  While Ethan may not be high on my list of favorites, he clearly is a skilled wrestler with tons of experience.  And when you put him in the ring with another wrestler of the same caliber like Rex (who is very high on my list of favorites), the end result is one of the best matches I've seen from 88Wrestling.

There are great moves here by both guys, but this post is all about Rex (maybe later I'll share some of Ethan's highlights).  "King of the Ring" is a great title for the match since "Rex" means king, and Rex is here to defend his throne, or rather his title belt.  Just seeing Rex in the top photo with the belt, you know it's going to take someone with pretty big cojones to step into the ring to try to take it from him.  Rex just impresses me as a wrestler.  He's got the muscular, shredded body, a strong MMA backround, and he rocks those camo tights.  And Rex is not shy when it comes to bodyslams and backbreakers, which gives me a great reason to show off his awesomeness in my blog.  I don't do my "wrestler of the year" award anymore, but if I did, the 2018 award likely would go to Rex, with his performance in this match sealing the deal.

Watching Rex break Ethan's back puts me in my happy place.

Alex and Alex

Meet Alex and Alex, two fun guys from Romania.  On the left we have Alex, and next to him is Alex, and they are doing what they do best, which is flexing their glorious biceps.  You can find them both on The Best Flex website which is a place where muscleboys from around the world capitalize on their best assets, their bodies.  Most of the guys use the site to post videos for purchase, but you can also arrange custom videos, cam shows, and some guys are even available for meet ups.  Alex and Alex are among my favorites.  To be more precise about who is who, CockyBoy Alex is on the right, and I featured him in my blog earlier this year.  The stud on the left is his buddy Alex Master

Most videos you see on Best Flex feature posing and muscle worship, but you get several with a wrestling domination theme.  While Alex and Alex create a lot of solo videos, sometimes they collaborate, just like they did recently for a custom lift and carry video.  As you see from the clips above, it's CockyBoy Alex who takes the role of alpha wrestler in this video.  The dude is 5' 8" and 200 pounds, so he's powerfully built.  He has little trouble lifting and carrying his buddy Alex Master, who comes in at 5' 11" and 180 pounds.  This is not a hard core wrestling video, but just two buddies horsing around.  That's what I like about Alex and Alex.  They are playful and have good chemistry in their videos.  They look like fun guys to hang out with.  Maybe when I make it to Romania some day, the Alexes will let me play with them, too.  I'll even let them use me as their wrestling toy.

Be sure to check out their profiles on Best Flex here and here, plus their collaboration videos here.  Their killer smiles and killer bodies are definitely worth the price of admission.

Alex and Alex wish you a Happy New Year!

From Bad to Worse

This is a continuation of my last post about Lorenzo's bad day at No Rules Wrestling, and as we see, his day goes from bad to worse  His custom match with Sasha Samson has so much good stuff in it, I can probably do five or six posts if I wanted.  The match really is a showcase for Sasha to display his power over the smaller Lorenzo, who as we saw in my last post suffers through many bodyslams and torture racks.  Today we highlight Sasha's ability to dish out awesome over-the-knee backbreakers, which he does repeatedly on Lorenzo.  Now, don't think that Lorenzo is nothing but a boytoy for the big new guy.  NRW filmed several matches featuring the two wrestlers, and Lorenzo shows that he can be pretty bad ass, too, when he needs to be.  Be sure to check those matches out at the NRW website.

After such a rough day, Lorenzo deserves to take a little break.

Lorenzo's Bad Day

For reasons I can't fully articulate, Lorenzo Smalls probably is my favorite wrestler at No Rules Wrestling, especially when he's wearing his white Under Armour shorts.  I envy his job where he gets paid to appear in wrestling matches at NRW.  At least I assume he gets paid.  But as we all know, not every job is perfect all the time, and even our hero Lorenzo has a bad day now and then.

NRW has a feature where fans can order custom videos, and recently Lorenzo was available for these special wrestling matches.  This was really a way for NRW to introduce a new wrestler on their roster, a guy named Sasha Samson.  He's a pretty big muscle dude, especially compared to Lorenzo.  One of the custom matches is a lift and carry session where Sasha bodyslams, torture racks, and backbreaks Lorenzo repeatedly.  For a guy like me who loves lift and carry action, this video is pretty awesome.  And from the looks of it, it's an easy challenge for Sasha since he outweighs Lorenzo by about forty pounds.  But for Lorenzo, well . . . its a tough job, but someone has to do it.  Thanks Lorenzo!  We appreciate you being such a good sport about this.

Looks like there's a new Muscle Boy in town!

Odd Man Out

So, what happens to a lean, gawky, scrawny guy who finds himself in a wrestling ring with two beefy muscle guys?  He discovers pretty fast that he's the odd man out.

It's a two-on-one wrestling match at Wrestler4Hire featuring Brad Barnes, Austin Cooper, and Ethan Andrews.  Both Brad and Austin sport a lot of muscle on their bodies, but not so much for the lanky Ethan, who clearly looks like the odd man out.  I love Brad Barnes!  And I'm a big fan of Austin, too, because he loves bodyslams and other power moves.  But as for Ethan . . . well, I have to admit that I always struggle with him. The set up for this match is that Ethan has long been a a bully to Brad, but he finally gets his due when Brad and Austin exact revenge on the smaller dude. In real life no one would ever believe an Ethan could be a bully to a Brad Barnes, but in the world of underground wrestling, Ethan often plays the bully, or rather the heel, to bigger muscle guys.  And that's where I have struggled with Ethan.  I like seeing the good looking, masculine muscle jocks delivering a beat down on a smaller jobber.  But when I see Ethan giving a musclestud a beat down, it just doesn't appeal to me.  That's especially the case at 88Wrestling, where Ethan clearly is the "odd man out" among all the fitness studs and physique models on the roster there, but those muscleboys always seem to play jobber to Ethan's heel.  Of course, it's a matter of personal taste, and lots of guys obviously enjoy seeing Ethan in that type of match.  Also, to be fair, I don't want to give the impression that I don't like Ethan at all.  He's a talented and prolific wrestler, and I think he is awesome in the role of heel at UCW Wrestling.  He really fits in there.  But when he's wrestling a big, good-looking muscle jock, I want to see Ethan suffer.  So, this really is just a long-winded way of saying that I liked this two-on-one match at W4H a lot because two of my favorite musclestuds dominate Ethan with tons of power moves like bodyslams, pile drivers, backbreakers, torture racks, and bearhugs.  So there you go, Ethan!  Take that, you damn bully!

Now that's how a muscleboy treats a jobber!
