Here are a few more of my favorite torture rack action photos. What I like about these are the expressions of the dudes who are being racked, which range from outright anguish to near comatose. And the cockiness of Braden Charron and Scotty Mac add a really nice touch to an already awesome scene. You can't be afraid to bring the pain to your opponent or even to enjoy it. Next time it could be you.

The Dominator is at it again in a new match at Thunders Arena against Angel. From the promo this appears to be a good back and forth match because Angel is a scrapper who always handles himself pretty well on the mat in spite of his inevitable size disadvantage. But as we all know, Dominic loves to press other dudes overhead, and Angel (whether he likes it or not) frequently finds himself hefted up in the air by his bigger opponents. So it's no surprise to see Dominic send Angel flying. One thing I love about Dominic is the look of intensity when he gorilla presses his opponents. It's like he's tapping into some primordial power deep inside him which gives him superhuman strength. Wrestling is a primal sport, and all good wrestlers know how to tap into that beastly power deep within during the heat of competition, when that survival instinct matters most. Wrestling is survival of the fittest like no other sport.

Although the bodyslam is my favorite pro-style wrestling move, the torture rack scores pretty high on my list, too. If I had the time, I probably could do a seperate blog about it. But until then, the torture rack can make a special guest appearance here. The appeal of the torture rack in wrestling is like the bodyslam because it's one muscle dude dominating another dude by picking him up. There's just something about taking a hold of another guy and lifting him bodily off the ground. The two bodies are completely supported by the strength and power of the one. I get a rush by bending a dude's body over my shoulders, hearing him grunt and groan as he endures the unendurable. And I have to admit that being in a torture rack is almost as fun. If you've never experienced one, be sure to put it on your list of things to do.

Rob Terry is now the heavyweight champion at Ohio Valley Wrestling, which seems logical. We all know that pro wrestling is more spectacle than sport, but I have to give OVW some credit because if this were real competition, there are very few who could seriously challenge a 320 pound muscle monster like Rob Terry. I find it hard to put into words all the reasons why I like Rob Terry as a wrestler. Luckily, his wrestling photos do a lot of talking for me. I'm sure he can easily gorilla press most if not all of his opponents, but I don't think I've seen a picture of him doing that. While I would love to see that, I think one reason I like him as a wrestler so much is because he likes to crotchlift the other dudes for scoopslams or otk backbreakers. As much as I like the gorilla press, it's the crotchlift for slams that I like the most. Above Rob Terry is wrestling LaMarcus Clinton, and the first picture is my favorite. Clinton looks like a little boy in the arms of Rob Terry, just waiting to be slammed. I've been on a kick lately about bigger being better, which I've posted about before this month. I've been able to wrestle around with a couple of smaller dudes a few times lately, and it's great to be the bigger guy, the one who scoops up his opponent and parades him around, to crack his back over the knee or slam him onto the mat. There's little wonder why Rob Terry likes to wrestle.

Biceps and wrestling. What a great combination. And it's hard to find better examples of this than Ohio Valley Wrestling studs Rob Terry and Jessie Godderz. It just goes to show that the bigger your biceps, the better it is to scoop your opponent up high and slam him down hard onto the mat. And be sure to flex your biceps while you're at it. Make sure the other dude knows who the real muscle stud is.

Although lately I've been promoting the "bigger is better" point of view, there's another cliche worth mentioning: "good things come in small packages." Angel of Thunders Arena is a good example of this. Not long ago Joe at Ringside posted this picture of Angel picking up another wrestler over his head. It just goes to show that just because you're small, you still can be bad ass. Angel's bio on TA puts him at 135 pounds, but it's probably been a while since he's weighed in at TA. From the picture above, it looks like he's put on a lot of muscle. I've talked about Angel before and how he tends to get tossed around a lot. But with his new muscles, maybe it's time for Angel to turn the tables on his opponents.

Continuing with the theme of my last couple of posts, BG East wrestler Braden Charron is a good study in Bigger is Better. Actually, it looks like he spends more time in the ring getting pounded by other wrestlers, and I guess that's because BGE caters more to those fans who want to see the hunk get beaten. Luckily, every once in a while BG East will throw a smaller dude into the ring with Braden so that the muscle boy can have his way with him. You got to feed the beast every once in a while, you know.

You remember me back in high school. I'm the muscle jock you see walking down the hallway. The wrestler. You try to catch a glimpse of me in the lockerroom shower. My thick chest, broad shoulders, tree trunk thighs. So different from you. I bleed. I sweat. I put in hours of practice. My sport is for the physically superior and elite. Timid and weak are your mind and body, so you just sit on the sideline and watch. You are drawn to me, while simultaneously afraid of me. You like to think you can take me, be the David against the Goliath. But that's just your fantasy world. I'm bigger, and I'm better. Trust me. You don't want to learn the hard way.

All of you probably have heard the trite saying "Bigger does not mean better." Bull shit. I hate to tell you boys, but bigger muscles, bigger bodies, these are always better, especially in the world of wrestling. Just ask everyone of these guys here.
