Bruce Ballard

Crikey.  Here we are getting on to late August and I haven't done much posting during the summer.  I guess the wrestling muses haven't been very active in my neighborhood of late.  But here's someone worth posting about.  It's Bruce Ballard from Rock Hard Wrestling, and I'm kinda surprised I haven't featured him before.  At 5'11" and 190 pounds of muscle, RHW calls him the Total Package.  These are some shots from his debut match at RHW a while back where he demolishes fellow rookie wrestler Tyson Matthews.  Our boy Bruce needs to work a little more on his bodyslamming technique, but he definitely gets an A for effort.  Tyson, on the other hand, might need to consider pursuing a career in a different sport.  Maybe cricket.  I like this kid's moxie as he strikes a double biceps flex pose in victory as if he's a certified Muscle Boy.  Can a rookie really stake such a claim after just one match?  If you look like Bruce Ballard, I guess you can.

Mahabali Shera

I like to check out Bruno's blog at Beefcakes of Wrestling because he does a great job.  A lot of the wrestlers I have blogged about here are ones that Bruno found first.  But here's a big wrestler that I haven't seen Bruno feature yet.  He's Mahabali Shera (aka Khoya) of TNA wrestling.  Originally from India, he weighs in at 265 pound and stands at 6' 2" tall.  You definitely do not want to be powerslammed by this dude unless you're curious to see what it feels like to be roadkill.  I would call Shera a beefcake, but since he's from India, and you know how they are about cows, maybe it isn't politically correct.  The last thing I'd want to do is insult a wrestler like this dude.

Spotland Scrappers

On occasion when surfing the internet trying to find things to blog about, I come across Spotland Scappers, which is an English wrestling production.  I've never paid too much attention to them before, but recently I started checking out what they have to offer.  It's not fancy, but they make a lot of entertaining videos for download, including pro style matches, matroom wrestling, and custom matches.  One custom match I came across features the two wrestlers you see here, Sammy Scrapper in the red shorts against Sam Smiler.  It's advertised as a lift and carry video, so of course I had to check it out.  Our boy in red Sammy mostly plays the heel, but I hope to find a match where Sam Smiler takes on that role.  Overall it's a fun match to watch and makes me want to check out more of Spotland Scrappers.  I have to say of the four pics I posted here, the top one is my favorite.  When you want to prove that you are a dominant alpha wrestler, that's how you need to lift and carry a dude around.  It makes an impression on your opponent.  I wish more wrestlers would do this.

Rowdy Boys

I got a few ideas for some interesting posts but just haven't had time to put them together.  But I hate to let the month of July go by with so little activity on my blog, so here are some random action pictures for you guys to chew on until I can post something better.  Maybe these dudes can teach us a little something about having fun.  It's Friday night after all, and what better way to get ready for the weekend than to get rowdy like these boys?

Awesome Austin

Guess I've been busy this summer so I haven't had a lot of time to spend on my blog.  For your entertainment here are some pics from a match at BG East between Austin Cooper and Atom (expanding his world beyond Thunders Arena).  Austin Cooper is an awesome wrestler.  He's strong and likes to show off his muscles with power moves, with bodyslams being among his favorite ways to dish out punishment.  Cooper loves to slam dudes.  Repeatedly.  That makes him a certified Muscle Boy.

As you know, only Muscle Boys are licensed to pose like this.  For more pictures from this match, check out this link.

A Singlet Does Not Make The Man

I blogged recently about wrestling gear and even praised dudes wearing singlets.  But just wearing a singlet doesn't necessarily make you a wrestling stud.  Case in point is Luke Harrison of Rock Hard Wrestling and his match against Brodie Fisher.  The boy Luke shows up in the ring clad in a singlet, but that doesn't really give his 5'10" and 140 pound body much of an advantage against Fisher's solid 5'8" and 170 pound muscular physique.  Luke gets clobbered, which just goes to show that it's not really the singlet but rather what goes into the singlet that matters most on the wrestling mat.  Check out this link for more great pics of Luke being manhandled by Brodie.  It's no surprise the kid ends up like this.

The Reluctant Jobber

Not long ago I posted some photos that wrestler Darius had sent me from matches he produced himself.  But in addition to his own matches, Darius also appears in some well know internet productions, including Muscle Domination Wrestling.  In one match at MDW he faces Brad Barnes in a video called Meaty Muscle Massacre.  From the pictures at least, it looks like Darius is the meaty muscle being massacred.  In another video he faces Braden Charron in a match called Power Move Punishment, where Braden executes some of his best power moves to punish Darius.  I'm not sure of Darius' stats, but he looks like a pretty solid dude.  Definitely not someone who looks like a jobber in the wrestling ring.  So I'm a little surprised by these matches, but I can't be critical about it.  I have to confess, as much as I like to think of myself as an alpha male when it comes to wrestling, I wouldn't mind jobbing for either Brad Barnes or Braden Charron.
