Monster Mash

Happy Halloween dudes!  Here's Rob Terry, the scariest beast you could ever hope to come across in a wrestling ring.  He needs no costume tonight in order to strike fear deep into the hearts of mortal men.

No Samson Effect

Josh Steel showed up at Rock Hard Wrestling as the long haired blond surfer boy, so I didn't even recognize him at first in RHW's newest match where he appears sporting a hair cut.  This brought to mind the story of Samson from the Bible and how he lost his strength once his hair was cut.  Such a tragedy did not befall Josh Steel.  According to the write up for his new match against Ethan Andrews, Steel has bulked up with thirty pounds of added muscle.  And the match preview shows him having no trouble demonstrating his power by lifting and tossing around Andrews in the ring.  I'm not sure who ultimately wins the match, but the shorter hair adds up to added strength for our buddy Josh Steel.

Mikey Webb

Here's Mikey Webb in action.  I'm not sure what all the tassles are about on his outfit, but other than that he looks like a pretty solid wrestler.  According to his bio page at Chaotic Wrestling, Mikey is 5'10" and 206 pounds.  That's a pretty powerful size and weight ratio.  And he puts it to good use here with a nice looking powerslam.  His bio page says he's also the former CW New England Champion.  Keep working hard, Mike.  You'll get that championship belt back!

Alex Koslov

Bodyslams are my bread and butter in this blog (in case you had not noticed), but it's good to mix things up every once in a while and highlight something different.  The shoulder rack is another one of my favorite pro wrestling style moves.  Here we get Alex Koslov putting Davey Richards in a pretty good looking rack during a match at Ring of Honor (more match photos here).  Looks like Alex is using that left hand of his to deliver a little extra punishment to Davey.  You think he's still pissed at Davey Richards for giving him the finger a while back?

All Grown Up

Two years ago I did a post on Kyle O'Reilly with pictures from various matches at Cyber Fights.  Kyle was being tossed around in those matches by much bigger guys, and the gist of the post was that he was a mere boy among men.  But look at Kyle O'Reilly now.  He's a wrestler at Righ of Honor, and according to his bio, he's over 200 pounds.  He has even earned a tag team champions belt.  Well done, Kyle!  I shouldn't have been so quick to judge you.

More Specimen

For those of you who like the gorilla press (and who doesn't?), the wrestling action at Thunders Arena is usually a sure bet to please.  We've seen Specimen hoisting his opponents overhead before, and he's at it again in a recent match against Atom.  Specimen is looking particularly pleased with himself in the second photo, and who can blame him.  He's a bodybuilder who really knows how to put his muscles to good use.

More Dominic

It's been almost nine months since I last had a post about Dominic at Thunders Arena.  I guess he's been busy with other things this year, but it seems he can't stay away from TA forever.  He's back in a new match against Kid Titan.  From the match description and the video preview, it looks like Dominic has his way with his muscled opponent.  Luckily the match includes one of Dominic's dominating gorilla presses.  And given that Kid Titan weighs 200 pounds, it's especially impressive to see Dominic lift someone that big.

Wonder Twins

I hope you don't mind if I talk some more about the tag team wrestling match at Rock Hard Wrestling featuring the Wonder Twins Alex Waters and Brodie Fisher against Josh Steel and Brian Baker.  I call Waters and Fisher the Wonder Twins because they look so much alike to me.  And like twins, they wear matching wrestling singlets in this match.  Very nice.  I like this match a lot.  It's a fun one to watch.  The numerous lifts, carries, and slams that the Wonder Twins execute during the match provide a nice quality to the action.  Brodie Fisher does most of the heavy lifting, especially by bodyslamming the much larger Brian Baker on more than one occasion.  Fisher also gets a good OTK backbreaker on Josh Steel.  Early in the match you can tell Alex Waters wants to mimic Fisher's feats of strength by dishing out similar punishment, but he appears unsure of himself and switches to different moves.  But eventually Waters gets Josh Steel in a good crotchlift, parades him around the ring, and delivers a very respectable powerslam (is there ever a powerslam that isn't respectable?).  In the end, the Wonder Twins earned the right to flex their muscles over their defeated opponents.  All in all, it is a great match, and it has created some buzz in wrestling blogsphere.  To read more about it, check out Joe's Ringside blog, and there's also a write up at the Neverland blog.  You can see the entire match at RHW.
