A long time ago, Jessie Godderz and Marcus Anthony were the original Dream Team at Ohio Valley Wrestling. Well, we all know that the team didn't last, and Marcus Anthony went away for a while, and now upon his return to OVW, Marcus has paired up with Rob Terry to form a new Dream Team. Yet it was inevitable that Marcus and Jessie should face each other in a wrestling match at OVW, which they did recently in a tag team event. It doesn't look like a happy reunion, and Marcus Anthony in particular is taking things pretty hard as Jessie Godderz scoops him up for a bodyslam. But don't spend much time worrying about Marcus Anthony. He gets his mojo back later in the match by bodyslamming Jessie's tag team partner Rudy Switchblade. And sometime soon maybe we'll get to see Marcus doing the same to Jessie.

Action photos from wrestling matches are the mainstay of my blog, but I love it when I come across photos of your average, everyday muscle dude showing off his stuff by executing a pro wrestling power move on another guy. I wish I could find more pictures like these, and it would be especially great to see some of muscle dudes scoopslamming other guys (if any young muscle studs out there are reading this blog, send me your pics!). All these guys are like minded. They know that one of the best things about having muscles is using them to dominate other dudes.

Most guys who wrestled in high school are familiar with the Beast of the East tournament, which takes place in Delaware every December. When I was in high school, it was the most prestigious scholastic wrestling tournament in the country. It's a "beast" of a tournament because it regularly draws over 100 teams. And the dude who is talented enough to actually win his weight class out of such a large competition pool truly can claim that he is a "beast" among his fellow wrestlers. Unfortunately for me, my school never participated in the tournament because it mostly draws from teams along the East Coast. But even now, after high school, I like to check up on the tournament results because the boys who win today are the men who represent the USA in wrestling tomorrow. It's a good place to see the up and coming talent in amateur wrestling. So, you're probably wondering what does this have to do with my post today? I came across these photos of Far East wrestler Zeus (real name Kenshou Obayashi?) who competes in Japan. He's six feet tall, weighs in at 240 pounds, and he loves to press dudes overhead. What's not to like about that? He's the true Beast of the East. I'd like to throw him into a tournament with over 1000 wrestlers and see what havoc he can create.

I was looking through my stash of wrestling photos the other day and came across these from a match featuring Austin Cooper and Cameron Mathews. I can't believe I haven't used these in a post before. I'm not sure where I originally found these, but checking out the BG East website, the action comes from a match called Babyface Brawls (although "babyface" doesn't immediately come to my mind seeing these two dudes battling it out). Usually I don't give BG East a lot of attention in my blog as compared to the matches at Thunders Arena, Rock Hard Wrestling, and other companies. But this match here looks pretty awesome, so maybe BG East deserves some further consideration.

In yesterday's blog Dave Calbrese offers to give Krush some bodyslam pointers at No Rules Wrestling. Both Calbrese and Krush practice on Brian Walters, but the many slams leave Walters comatose on the mat. Calbrese wonders aloud how they are going to practice their bodyslams now that their playtoy is immobile on the ground. Krush decides there's no time like the present to show the teacher what the student has learned, so he scoops Calbrese high up into the air. Krush asks, "Am I doing it right?" And a panicked Dave Calbrese shouts "You're not doing it right! You're not doing it right!" But I disagree. Krush has his arm nice and deep in Calbrese's crotch. He lifts his opponent high up into the air with Calbrese's legs dangling over his head. Krush holds Calbrese up like this for several seconds, then dumps him over for a powerful bodyslam. I'd say that Krush is doing it just right. Considering how Krush tosses Calbrese through the air, this video could be called Flight School rather than Fight School.

video up called Fight School. I hope this is a new series. What they give us here is Dave Calbrese instructing Krush how to bodyslam. It looks like Calbrese walks in on a wrestling match between Krush and the douche bag Brian "Wall Street" Walters. Calbrese doesn't like the technique Krush is demonstrating as he scoops up and slams Walters, so he steps into the ring to give Krush some pointers. I've said it before that Dave Calbrese gives a good looking bodyslam. Let's hope Krush learns a few things from him.
