The Champ

One of my favorite pro wrestlers is Austrian Mexxberg, in no small part because he loves to bodyslam and gorilla press his opponents in the ring (and sometimes out as the fourth pic shows).  What's not to like about that?  Mexx is active in at least two European federations, Varsity Pro Wrestling and New European Championship Wrestling.  He makes that VPW championship belt look pretty good.

As long as I am promoting wrestling websites, I want to feature Cameron Mathews' website today.  Recently Cameron has begun to produce his own wrestling matches and posting them for sale.  Many of the wrestlers will be familiar to you.  The pictures here come from a match Cameron recently made available between Marko and Maverick.  Maverick is none other than indy wrestler Tony Nese, and he suffers from a pretty good looking otk backbreaker here.  There's a lot more on the website than just these videos.  You can get information on how to request custom made matches, and Cameron also has details about "Pro vs. Joe" matches where you can challenge an underground wrestling star to a one-on-one match.  Stepping into a ring against someone like Brad Barnes sounds like a lot of fun . . . at least until he scoops you up and snaps your spine with an otk backbreaker . . .

Molto Lotta Italiana

If you check out Italian Muscle's website, you'll see a link to his wrestling videos.  These matches feature not just him, but several other of his buddies, too.  From the previews, it looks like they are mostly lift and carry videos.  Bearhug fans in particular should find them entertaining.  Our man at Italian Muscle sent me these screen shots to show there's some good bodyslam and backbreaker action, too.  The match between the two guys in the second and third pics really looks intriguing.  Their singlets may not be quite regulation, but I'd love to wrestle them.  I really need to start planning that trip to Italy . . .

Brodie Brings It

It's hard to believe that it is already October.  The year has gone by fast.  At the end of last year, I crowned Brodie Fisher of Rock Hard Wrestling the Wrestler of the Year for 2013, but it seems like he has kept a low profile in 2014.  I think he's appeared in just one match this year, so maybe he has moved on to other things.  It would be a shame to not see him wrestling anymore, but then again, sometimes to old has to make way for the new, and RHW has brought onboard some stunning new talent recently, like Dash Decker and Bruce Ballard.  I'm pretty confident those two dudes will give me some good material to blog about soon.  But back to Brodie, here he is above delivering some slams and backbreakers in a match against Colt Palmer.  It's not really much of a match to be honest.  Except for a few minutes of boxing at the beginning, Colt doesn't really fight back.  That's my kind of opponent.

On another note, the photo below comes from a recent college wrestling match in California, and I love it!  A lot of ingredients go into making a successful wrestler, such technique and skill, strength and muscles, drive, and a good dose of insanity.  A cocky attitude is also essential for success in wrestling, and this photo captures that perfectly.
