I’ve always been a leg guy.
Of course, I’ve also always been as ass-guy, too; the two are directly related. Is there anything hotter, though, than having a guy with great, muscular legs put them around your head and squeeze, tightening the quads and hamstrings, the glutes hardening?
I don’t think so.
That’s from my match with Josh Goodman, obviously. Look at his legs. I mean…wow.
Really, in looking back at some of the pictures from my matches, it’s no wonder that despite being in really good physical condition when I went before the cameras…that I was kind of insecure.
But I digress–back to the head scissors, and legs.
I was always lucky with my legs. My legs were always big and muscular; I assumed it was a genetic thing, but no one else in my family has big, thick legs like mine. It wasn’t until a few years ago, when I had some issues with my ankles and feet, that my doctor actually explained it to me–all of my joints (hips, knees, ankles) are double-jointed to an extent, and I also have falling arches/flat feet. My feet also pronate because of this; they roll to the inside, which is why I need to replace my shoes so frequently (my shoes end up wearing that way, so I end up walking on the sides of the shoes). Because of this, my leg muscles are constantly trying to keep my balance, to keep me from falling (this is also, apparently, why I am so clumsy)…as such, my legs muscles are always working. My extreme flexibility also comes from the double-jointed issues; and that extreme flexibility also ensured that, since my muscles were always well stretched, there was a good flow of oxygen and blood through them and as such, any and all exercise was much more effective in building muscles.
The more you know.
I’m really not a fan of leg day.
But the head scissors? BIG FAN. Kevin Von Erich was a master of it; I used to watch his matches with my mouth open as he tortured his opponents with his massive, well-defined legs. It was also a relatively easy hold to apply; you can learn it by watching, and obviously, all you have to do once you have your legs around your opponent’s head is lock your ankles, flex your leg muscles, and squeeze.
Before I was a BGEast wrestler, most of my opponents were drawn to me for my legs and my scissors–which, ironically, I never really used much in front of the cameras. The Goodman match was one of the exceptions–and of course, he used his gorgeous legs on my head. A lot.
It was a really hot match.
