Muscleboy Wrestling. More internet wrestling definitely is a good thing, but early on I shied away from Muscleboy. They got some good looking wrestlers, and a lot of the match previews make it look like their wrestling is pretty entertaining. But the action there often goes beyond just wrestling. In many matches the activity progresses to, well . . . let's just say to the kind of stuff that, when I was in high school, occurred more often outside behind the gym instead of inside on the wrestling mat. Not that there's anything wrong with Muscleboy showing that kind of stuff. Afterall, I heard someone once describe wrestling as gay porn with a little bit of clothing on. But for my PG-13 oriented blog, it's just not the kind of stuff I usually feature. Then recently I came across the promo for a match at Muscleboy featuring wrestlers Dante and Ethan Slade, making me re-think my considerations of Muscleboy. While there's a lot that can be written about wrestler Slade, I want to focus on Dante here, who is bodyslamming Slade. Dante sports an impressive 5' 10" and 180 pound body which is perfect for wrestling, so that catches the eye. But mostly here I love this bodyslam. I fucking love it. I love how Dante grips Slade's body. Check out the veins popping on his forearm! It looks like Dante has such a tight, secure, nut crunching hold of Slade's body that Slade may need to see a fertility specialist if he experiences many more slams like this. To belabor this fine point even further (and it's my blog, so I'm allowed to do so), I recall a couple of years ago in my judo class watching a black belt instruct some new guys on various judo pins. When demonstrating the yoko-shiho-gatame hold (which for wrestlers is the same as the crotch half nelson pin combo), the black belt explained that you need to squeeze your opponent as tight as you can, as if he were an accordion. Basically, he was telling the new guys you wanna crush the shit out of your opponent if you get him in this hold. That's what Dante is doing here. He's crushing the shit out of Ethan Slade.

Wow, has it really been almost 8 months since I last posted in my blog? I remember a few years ago realizing that there's only so much to say about bodyslams, and I was running out of things to cover. But every once in a while something comes up that catches my attention, like this clip here from UCW. The muscleboy in orange gets a good grip between his opponent's legs, scoops up the yellow jobber, then bodyslams him like the bitch he is. So simple, yet so beautiful. God, after all these years, I still love a fucking bodyslam!
I'm sure someone out there knows who these wrestlers are and which match video it comes from. Please share. And I'll try to start posting again more regularly this year. And if you have suggestions about cool bodyslams, gorilla presses, or otk backbreakers I can post, please comment below or email me. Thanks guys!
EDIT: It's Jack Marino against Aron. Check the match out at the link here.
