You don't have to be a mad or angry person to be a wrestler, but these emotions can come in handy when you're engaged in a combat sport. Sometimes you have to call on these emotions in order to gain that extra strength you need to take control of your opponent and win the match. I'm not so sure why Rob Terry looks so mad all the time when he's about to bodyslam another dude. It's not like he doesn't have the muscles to crush almost any guy who steps in the ring with him. I guess he's just mean.

Last year I did a post about clean cut jocks beating up on hippies, and one of the photos was of indy wrestler VsK delivering a bodyslam on a long haired freak. Here are some more pictures of VsK dishing out punishment on both the hippie and non-hippie type. VsK (aka Vinny Scalice) keeps himself busy by wrestling for several different promotions, including Victory Pro Wrestling, East Coast Wrestling Association, and Federated Wrestling. The interesting thing about him is that he didn't always keep his hair so short. Check him out below:

I've been hit by the flu but luckily I'm slowly recovering. I'm not strong enough yet to do any bodyslams myself, but I do have enough strength back for another post of bodyslams. Back in January I featured Australian wrestler Mike Petersen. Here are some of his fellow wrestlers from Australia in action.

In my recent posts I've talked about how skinny dudes can be deceptively powerful when you face them in the ring or on the wrestling mat. But no matter how impressive a skinny guy is, this can only get him so far. There's not a lot he can do when he runs up against a real muscle dude, especially when that dude comes in the form of Karl the Muscle Boy. Here are some more photos from Karl's match against a guy he just simply calls the "skinny guy". There are several things to like about these pictures. In the first one you got Karl's big smile. As a wrestler you try to appear tough and mean, but sometimes when you find yourself in total control of another dude, you just can't help but be pleased with yourself. I love how Karl lifts the skinny guy up high. This is as close as I've seen the muscle boy come to pressing another dude over his head. Let's hope Karl gives us a show like that soon.

We saw Lorenzo Smalls in my last post. I doubt Smalls is his real name, but it's probably something No Rules Wrestling gave him. Let's face it. Lorenzo is not a big guy, especially in the world of pro-style wrestling. In fact, he's down right skinny. I've done many, many posts extolling the virtues of the muscular dudes of wrestling. But you can't always overlook the skinny dudes. Some skinny dudes are deceptively strong and pack a lot of power in their lean bodies. In the match above, Lorenzo faces off against Drake. Now, Drake himself is of modest proportions in the world of pro wrestling, but he looks beefy and muscular compared to Lorenzo. This should be an easy match for Drake, right? Actually not, because the skinny dude wins. Lorenzo caps off his victory by scooping Drake up and bodyslamming him before the pin. Lorenzo may not look like the type who can lift and toss other dudes around, but there's hidden power within that small stature of his. He also proves what I have said many times about technique. The nice, deep crotch hold Lorenzo secures on the bigger Drake goes a long way in allowing the skinny guy to hoist up his larger opponent for the winning bodyslam.

It's been a while since I checked in on the happenings at No Rules Wrestling, and I'm glad I did. There were several new matches of interest. One in particular featured fraternal twin brothers Lorenzo and Antonio Smalls wrestling each other. Based on the video trailer for this match, it looks like Lorenzo dominates his twin. He puts an end to the match with a pretty sweet looking bodyslam. The concept of this match struck a chord with me. Although I have a brother, there are over ten years between us in age. Back when I was in middle school and even high school, I found myself at times wishing I had a brother close to my age. A twin would have been perfect. A live in wrestling buddy just my size. Scenes like above probably would have been a daily occurrence.

I like Scotty Mac, the Canadian wrestler. He's been wrestling for at least twelve years and shows no signs of slowing down. Here are some recent and old photos of his slamming the shit out of other dudes. He's well into his thirties now and is still going strong. And I mean literally strong. Check out those biceps in the first photo. Nothing wrong with showing those off. Even though he's no longer a boy, those arms earn him Muscle Boy status.
