Maybe This Time

I was at a conference the last five days; had hoped to be able to keep posting and stay on top of things in the meantime, but that just didn’t happen. Hilariously, one of the things I’d forgotten in my years of not being active on wrestling contact sites is what little butt-hurt bitches some wrestlers can be. Activating a profile on Meetfighters was nice, and so was all the attention. I try to keep up with responding to messages, but I do get, with all due modesty, a lot of them; same with Globalfight. But some people…if you don’t respond to them in what they consider to be a proper amount of time will send you a really bitchy message and then block you! I’d forgotten about that aspect of contact sites in my long absence. Of course, it’s amusing to me; wow, you sure showed me! I have LEARNED MY LESSON by being denied forever any chance of ever meeting or wrestling you.

And yet you think I’m arrogant. Okay.

So, where was I? Oh yes, Big Joe was being used a ring mop by vicious ultra heel Dick Rick. I kind of had figured that was how the match would go–I mean, it is Dick Rick, after all–but you know I like me some big boys, and so I was a little bummed. But I counted Big Joe out a little too soon.

The thing about the big boys is they are strong. And when your opponent has size on you, you’ve got to not give them the opportunity to let them use their size and strength against you (my big mistake with Mitch Colby, for the record). But when you’re Dick Rick, and you’ve literally beaten down every person who’s gotten into the ring with you–and this match is already going that way–you can forget, you can make the mistake that turns the match on a dime and suddenly there’s a new narrative.

Never get into contests of strength with stronger guy, and never let someone use their strength against you. A bear hug? You fucking let him get you into a bear hug?

What were you thinking?

Dude, seriously?

And once Big Joe has started working over the hapless heel’s back…and let him overpower him…yeah, BIG mistake.

Turn about is fair play, and Big Joe wound up giving Dick Rick an enormously satisfying–and sexy–beating. And Big Joe sweats.

I love a sweaty man.

And in the end, Dick Rick doesn’t know what happened, where he went wrong…and probably spent the rest of the night thinking about his choices.

Great, great match; amazing pro action between two sexy studs with mad ring skills, and a compelling narrative.

High recommended.

Mr. Big Stuff

As I said yesterday, I’ve always had a thing for big guys. I love wrestling big guys; it’s a great challenge, and either way, I win–I either get dominated and tossed around (a fantasy) or I get to beat the crap out of them (always a good time). So Big Joe Robbins caught my eye when he showed up in the review copy of Ring Rookies 1 I got many years ago when I was writing for the BGEast website. He was taking on Dick Rick, already established as a hot-as-fuck heel for BGEast–and yes, I was a fan.

That is some solid beefcake there, and while I wasn’t sure if he was big or simply looked big, once Mr. Rick climbed through the ropes…yeah, he’s a big’un.

Dick Rick is pretty much flawless. He has an incredibly handsome face, and his body is literally perfect. You can’t really look at him and see an area for improvement. (Did he ever wrestle Josh Goodman? That would be pretty fucking hot…) He’s also a great wrestler, and being that gorgeous makes him a perfect heel. He’s that good looking asshole who’s not only arrogant because he’s so good looking but will also kick your ass for complaining. He’s fun to watch in the ring because he so clearly enjoys what he’s doing. He also doesn’t have a problem showing off that amazing body in the skimpiest of gear. And you have to wonder what’s up when he shows up in white…white trunks usually mean I’m here to get my ass kicked and have my body used to mop up the ring.

But Dick Rick? Nah. And Big Joe’s also wearing colors you don’t usually associate with the wrestler who’s going to win the match, either.

The story behind the match was a great one. Dick and Joe went to the same training school; Dick finishing up as Joe was getting started. Joe’s first “training” match was with Dick, who kicked his ass and humiliated him in front of everyone. Now Joe’s been signed to wrestle for BGeast, where Dick is already a star. Will Joe get revenge, or will Dick humiliate him once again?

Dick makes the mistake of challenging Big Joe to see who’s stronger.

That doesn’t go so well for him, so of course, he gets pissed–you don’t fuck with Dick Rick’s ego, especially in front of the cameras! So he unleashes some of his dirty tricks.

And it looks like yup, it’s going to be a repeat of the training match. I settled in, looking forward to watching the master beat the crap out of the big man.
