This is a continuation of my last post about Lorenzo's bad day at No Rules Wrestling, and as we see, his day goes from bad to worse His custom match with Sasha Samson has so much good stuff in it, I can probably do five or six posts if I wanted. The match really is a showcase for Sasha to display his power over the smaller Lorenzo, who as we saw in my last post suffers through many bodyslams and torture racks. Today we highlight Sasha's ability to dish out awesome over-the-knee backbreakers, which he does repeatedly on Lorenzo. Now, don't think that Lorenzo is nothing but a boytoy for the big new guy. NRW filmed several matches featuring the two wrestlers, and Lorenzo shows that he can be pretty bad ass, too, when he needs to be. Be sure to check those matches out at the NRW website.
After such a rough day, Lorenzo deserves to take a little break.

For reasons I can't fully articulate, Lorenzo Smalls probably is my favorite wrestler at No Rules Wrestling, especially when he's wearing his white Under Armour shorts. I envy his job where he gets paid to appear in wrestling matches at NRW. At least I assume he gets paid. But as we all know, not every job is perfect all the time, and even our hero Lorenzo has a bad day now and then.
NRW has a feature where fans can order custom videos, and recently Lorenzo was available for these special wrestling matches. This was really a way for NRW to introduce a new wrestler on their roster, a guy named Sasha Samson. He's a pretty big muscle dude, especially compared to Lorenzo. One of the custom matches is a lift and carry session where Sasha bodyslams, torture racks, and backbreaks Lorenzo repeatedly. For a guy like me who loves lift and carry action, this video is pretty awesome. And from the looks of it, it's an easy challenge for Sasha since he outweighs Lorenzo by about forty pounds. But for Lorenzo, well . . . its a tough job, but someone has to do it. Thanks Lorenzo! We appreciate you being such a good sport about this.
Looks like there's a new Muscle Boy in town!

So, what happens to a lean, gawky, scrawny guy who finds himself in a wrestling ring with two beefy muscle guys? He discovers pretty fast that he's the odd man out.
It's a two-on-one wrestling match at Wrestler4Hire featuring Brad Barnes, Austin Cooper, and Ethan Andrews. Both Brad and Austin sport a lot of muscle on their bodies, but not so much for the lanky Ethan, who clearly looks like the odd man out. I love Brad Barnes! And I'm a big fan of Austin, too, because he loves bodyslams and other power moves. But as for Ethan . . . well, I have to admit that I always struggle with him. The set up for this match is that Ethan has long been a a bully to Brad, but he finally gets his due when Brad and Austin exact revenge on the smaller dude. In real life no one would ever believe an Ethan could be a bully to a Brad Barnes, but in the world of underground wrestling, Ethan often plays the bully, or rather the heel, to bigger muscle guys. And that's where I have struggled with Ethan. I like seeing the good looking, masculine muscle jocks delivering a beat down on a smaller jobber. But when I see Ethan giving a musclestud a beat down, it just doesn't appeal to me. That's especially the case at 88Wrestling, where Ethan clearly is the "odd man out" among all the fitness studs and physique models on the roster there, but those muscleboys always seem to play jobber to Ethan's heel. Of course, it's a matter of personal taste, and lots of guys obviously enjoy seeing Ethan in that type of match. Also, to be fair, I don't want to give the impression that I don't like Ethan at all. He's a talented and prolific wrestler, and I think he is awesome in the role of heel at UCW Wrestling. He really fits in there. But when he's wrestling a big, good-looking muscle jock, I want to see Ethan suffer. So, this really is just a long-winded way of saying that I liked this two-on-one match at W4H a lot because two of my favorite musclestuds dominate Ethan with tons of power moves like bodyslams, pile drivers, backbreakers, torture racks, and bearhugs. So there you go, Ethan! Take that, you damn bully!
Now that's how a muscleboy treats a jobber!
