The little dude in a big vs little wrestling match has to rely on his speed and agility if he's going to have any chance of surviving the contest. That's why you often see these guys turn their bodies into human missiles by climbing the ring ropes and launching themselves at their beefcake opponents. That's what we see in a match from Thunders Arena featuring little dude Bolt wrestling muscle beast Brian Cage. But this strategy doesn't always work out well when the big guy catches the little dude in flight. It just gives a muscle stud like the 255 pound Brian Cage the opportunity to show off his power and press the 150 pound Bolt overhead.
This match has been out for a few months, so why am I waiting til now to feature it? Well, it's Memorial Day weekend, the time to honor warriors who have fallen in battle. Wrestlers are warriors, after all, and in giving up over 100 pounds in this match, there's only one logical outcome for Bolt. R.I.P. little dude.
Just kidding! Take heart, Bolt fans. The little guy is alive and well. And if you get a chance to watch this match, you might find yourself surprised at how big this little dude appears.

This is one of my all time favorite wrestling photos, and it features Chris "The Shark" Andrews gorilla pressing his brother in a pro wrestling match. Andrews is a UK wrestler who had his debut in the ring over ten years ago. This picture is from 2007, and even Andrews recognizes it as an iconic photo of him in action. Luckily for us, The Shark is still going strong (literally and figuratively) and continues to appear in the ring where he gets to show off his superhuman strength.
Chris Andrews is a true muscleboy of wrestling, which means he's licensed to carry around and show off his powerful guns wherever he wants.

For the past couple of years Tak has been the golden boy of Thunders Arena, and by "golden boy" I mean the small dude who gets thrown into the ring like a piece of meat to satisfy the muscle monsters that regularly appear on TA's roster. But are Tak's days numbered? There's a new kid at TA who's giving our golden boy some competition. It's Flaco, who at 5' 9" and 140 pounds really lives up to his name (I think "flaco" basically means "scrawny" in Spanish, but I'm too lazy to look it up right now). Recent matches have him wrestling the likes of Kid Titan, Talon, and Viggo, just to name a few. Tak has got some competition now, because I like the looks of this little dude as he gets tossed around in the ring. Welcome to Thunders Arena kid!
