In my last post I was curious about the names of the wrestlers featured in the photos. Of course, there was no real need to ask about the guy in the fourth photo. When you feature your name in big letters on your butt, people should take notice. Here are a few more photos of Domino. This beast of a wrestler, whose real name is Cliff Compton, has been wreaking havoc in the ring for a while. He's wrestled for Ohio Valley Wrestling, WWE, and more recently in Europe. In some older photos of him I've come across, he had a head of big floppy hair. I think shaving his head is a good move on Domino's part. When you're a six foot plus, over 220 pound wrestler, there aren't many new ways to make yourself more fierce, but the shaved head definitely makes Domino look bad ass.

The overhead press is always a crowd pleaser in wrestling, so here are some action photos for your enjoyment. The last picture is a really nice one. What does a muscle dude need expensive gym equipment for when he can press his buddy overhead?
That's Jo Atlas in the third picture. Please ID any of the other dudes if you can.

Unfortunately the quality of the above pictures aren't great, but you can get the point. Evander continues my theme of bodybuilders who understand the appeal of muscles and wrestling. His website features several videos where he shows off his strength. A lot of them involve wrestling. One of the videos is all about lifting other dudes, and Evander promotes it by saying it's about how strong a real bodybuilder is. Evander gets his muscles. It's not only about the flexing and posing. It's also about being the alpha male and dominating other guys. And there's no better way to be the muscle stud than by bodyslamming and gorilla pressing other dudes.

Josh Cooperman is another bodybuilder who likes to show off his muscles by wrestling. But unlike Flex Armstrong, Cooperman hasn't made a career out of wrestling. I've only seen him wrestle as Coupe for Thunders Arena. This probably means Cooperman doesn't wrestle for the money. He does it because it's just a fun way for a bodybuilder to put his muscles to use. Why else would you wear some skimpy posers and roll around with another dude who's almost as naked as you are? It doesn't look like Coupe has had much success at Thunders Arena, but that just proves my point that he wrestles for the fun of it. In the match above, though, Coupe handles himself pretty well against Dallas and gets in a really nice bodyslam on his way to victory. Coupe looks awesome as he carries Dallas around the room with the confidence that only a musclestud can show before finally slamming his opponent down to the mat. If anyone from Thunders Arena is reading this, how about letting Coupe dominate in more matches?

Here's more of Flex Armstrong in action and proving how bodybuilding and wrestling are a great combination. I love how he gets his meaty arm in between his opponents legs so he can crotchlift, gorilla press, and bodyslam the shit out of them. Life is fucking awesome when you got muscles. If anyone knows where to see more of Flex in action, please share.

Bruno over at Beefcakes of Wrestling blog recently did a nice post on bodybuilding wrestler Flex Armstrong and asked whether we liked Flex the bodybuilder or Flex the wrestler better. For me it's Flex the wrestler. Some time ago I was reading a blog where a poster lamented the fact that a bodybuilder (can't remember which one now) had to turn to pro wrestling to make money. I don't see the problem. Why does the bodybuilder have to make a choice when he can do both? Posing and flexing are nice ways to show off your muscles, but why have muscles if you aren't going to put them to use? That's where the wrestling comes in, and what better way to show off your muscles than by picking up and tossing around other dudes in a wrestling ring? Nice work, Flex!

Well, it's been a while since I have posted anything. It seems like I do my best blogging when I'm faced with the pressures of projects and deadlines. For some reason it's easy to talk about wrestling and bodyslams when I should be doing something else. Now that it's summer and I have less demands on my time, I've neglected things. I guess that doesn't make me a very good blogger. But there's one man who won't let you down, and that's Rob Terry. He's always working hard to give us what we want. Here are several good photos of him taking Johnny Spade apart with bodyslams and backbreakers. I think the third photo is my favorite of this group . . . Johnny's back bending over Rob Terry's knee . . . Rob's massive biceps crushing Johnny's crotch. Who's your daddy now, Johnny?

It can be entertaining to see the gimmicks wrestlers use to get attention in the world of pro wrestling. One example is a stable of wrestlers featured at Chikara pro wrestling known as The Colony. Its members purport to be three ants, named in particular Fire Ant, Soldier Ant, and Green Ant. In action here we see Green Ant, who at 6'2" and 186 pounds is the biggest dude in The Colony.
