Beefcake Brian Cage

I know I haven't been posting much lately, but it's been getting harder for me to spend time on my blog.  But I couldn't pass up the opportunity to post these pictures of Brian Cage in action for Pro Wrestling Guerilla in California.  This is also my way of tipping my hat to Bruno and his Beefcakes of Wrestling blog, of which I am a fan.  The first two action photos are particularly awesome because they show Brian Cage tossing around fellow beefcake wrestler Tony Nese.  The next two photos feature Cage humiliating two jobbers whose names I don't care to learn.  There's just something about a muscled up dude taking apart an inferior opponent in a wrestling ring.  All in all, I like these pictures.  (By the way, great photos by Devin Chen photography.)

I've been surfing the net looking for more good action photos of Kota Ibushi and Hiroshi Yamato, but they have been hard to come by (good bodyslam photos at least).  On the plus side, I've come across other good action pics to share, all keeping with my current celebration of Japan and its unique version of pro wrestling known as Puroresu.

Hiroshi Yamato

I want to stay in Japan and this time take a look at Hiroshi Yamato of All Japan Pro Wrestling.  He's a lean, muscular dude at 5'10" and 180 pounds.  Yamato has an amateur wrestling background, and these skills are evident in his pro matches with his frequent use of suplexes.  Of course, he does a nice bodyslam now and then, too.  Check him out in action on YouTube.

Kota Ibushi

Japanese wrestler Kota Ibushi comes in at a strapping 5'11" and 190 pounds.  Very good stats for a wrestler, in my opinion.  In the past he's appeared at Ring Of Honor, but his current home is Dramatic Dream Team (DDT) wrestling in Japan.  DDT has several videos on YouTube that are worth checking out.  They have put on shows in some creative locations outside of a ring, including an apartment complex, a camp ground, and a parking lot.  I like the originality of it.  They think outside the box (or squared circle).

Leon Shah

It's time for another Beefcake Bodyslam post.  Regularly I like to check out what Bruno is posting over at his Beefcakes of Wrestling blog, and lately he's been giving a lot of attention to British wrestler Leon Shah.  Here are some photos of Shah in action during a match against the UK Kid, and it looks like Shah can't get enough of bodyslamming his opponent.  To see more pictures of Shah in action, be sure to check out all that Bruno has to offer.

Classic Tak

At the end of my last post I noted that it was a new year but that the old classics never get old.  A classic I never tire of seeing is Tak being tossed around at Thunders Arena by some big muscle guy, and that's just what TA gives us in a recent match.  This time the muscle dude is a new wrestler known as Mutant.  Thanks for getting 2014 off to a good start, Tak!

New Year

It being a new year and all, I wasn't so sure about featuring Japanese wrestler Zeus after having posted not so long ago several photos of him dominating lesser mortals by pressing them with ease over his head.  But looking at the pictures now, I have no regrets.  You got a lean, muscled up wrestler who takes great pleasure in grabbing another dude by the nuts and lifting him up high in the air.  It's the ultimate form of male on male humiliation.  It's a new year, but the classics never get old.
