Play Time

Thunders Arena released some special matches for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, one of them being a match between Scrappy and Kasee.  I've watched Scrappy wrestle many times, but this is my first look at Kasee.  And boy, am I a big fan!  At 5' 9" and 170 pounds, Kasee has the looks I like in a wrestler with his muscular, aesthetic physique.  He's even wearing the type of trunks I like to see on wrestlers.  Because TA generally features big bodybuilders, I fear Kasee is destined to be a smaller dude who gets thrown around a lot by the bigger guys.  That's a problem Scrappy has at TA, too, so it's nice to see the two of them featured together in this match.

I have to admit, this is kind of a strange match, but I really enjoyed it, and Kasee in particular.  The best word that describes him is "playful."  It's like he doesn't see this as a serious wrestling match, but instead it's just an opportunity to have some fun.  He sees Scrappy's body as something to play with.  His own body is something for Scrappy to play with.  The wrestling is play time instead of a contest.  I love how Kasee is always grinning, like when he checks out Scrappy's thighs.  Scrappy claws his pecs, and Kasee grins.  Trapped in Scrappy's bearhug?  No problem!  It's just fun and games for Kasee.

Scrappy seems only to tolerate Kasee's playfulness to a point.  TA bills this match as muscle worship, and you see a good bit of it, mostly with Kasee trying to play with Scrappy's muscles.  Scrappy will let the playful Kasee do his thing for a few moments, but then Scrappy tries to get this back to a wrestling match.  Yet even when Scrappy breaks Kasee's back over the knee, or when Scrappy gorilla presses him (and it's impressive how he does so), Kasee just takes it all in with a grin like you see on the face of a kid in the sandbox on the playground.

The wrestling action for much of the match has Scrappy controlling Kasee, but Kasee eventually decides to make some moves of his own.  But even then, it's still all a game, like when he playfully gets Scrappy in an over the shoulder carry, or when he catches Scrappy in a sleeper.  The innocent, happy grin rarely leaves Kasee's face.  Wrestling in it's most primal form is just a game, something to be enjoyed, which Kasee understands.  That's why I like Kasee and look forward to seeing much more of him at TA.

Now there's a wrestler who knows it's all about the fun!
