Adonis Rising

His star rose quickly once his first match debuted.

It’s easy to see why. Not only was the body extraordinary, evidence of hours of hard work and careful diet planning, but the face was handsome as well. Dark blond hair and bright blue eyes, an enormous smile and dimples you could sink a finger into up to the first knuckle…yes, the fans responded with cash and erections and worshipful blog posts and messages on the BGEast fan lists.

Oh, yes, his star shone brightly. And he was a good wrestler, too. He was just as at home on the mats or the gazebo or the pool or the yard or the ring–something that not every wrestler had the ability to do. He was also ridiculously photogenic.

Every time I watched one of his matches, I thought, we need to do this.

We faced some of the same wrestlers, and yet…

32_lg

I wanted a ring match more than anything….he wanted a mat match.

And so began the tug of war, the war of words, and the feud.

Big Boys

Interestingly enough, I have wrestled three of the studs on Bulge Battles 1 for the cameras; and I sure as hell wouldn’t have minded getting in the ring with the other three. I’ve already discussed the Kid Karisma-Jobe Zander sweatfest, which was aboslutely amazing and definitely pushed a lot of my erotic buttons.

But that brings me to the match with another former opponent of mine: Josh Goodman vs. Rex Braddock.

Mr. Joshua is a stud, there’s no question about that. His body has been in perfect condition since the first day he walked in front of a BGEast camera, to this match. You have to admire his dedication to his fitness; it would be easy to figure hey, even if I put on another percent of bodyfat I’m still going to look better than 99% of men and slack off a little bit. His definition is intact; if anything, he might even be in better shape than he was when I wrestled him all those years ago.

Yeah, and the dramatic bulge is only emphasized by those silver trunks.

I also have a thing for his foe, Rex Braddock. I mean, he’s a big hunk of man, isn’t he? And those eyes…very dreamy. I’ve always been a sucker for a man with dark hair and blue eyes.

His debut, against Marc Merino in Strip Stakes 1, was a hot match; Marc Merino was also sexy as hell–and matches where the wrestlers strip each other down and wind up wrestling nude has pushed my buttons since the glory days of the Hard Pros series.

Rex is a big boy; maybe not as ripped as Mr. Joshua, but that’s a lot of beef…and when there’s a big size disparity between wrestlers, the bigger guy has an advantage right from the start. Rex takes full advantage of that size/strength disparity; toying with one Mr. Joshua from the very start–which of course had to be incredibly frustrating for someone with an ego the size of Mr. Joshua. I’ve not seen him get tossed around like this since he took on the Brooklyn Bodywrecker–and made the mistake of mocking BBW for being old. That was an enormously satisfying beatdown.

Mr. Joshua doesn’t take a beating just lying down though (other than that one, of course) and he’s not opposed to bringing a big hulk down with a low blow or two, and then never letting up. It was also fun–and hot–watching him work the big man over.

Definitely a good time was had by yours truly watching this one.

Trunks, Part One: Bulges

In the world of wrestling, let’s face it–one of the appeals, at least to me, is tight fitting trunks that leave little to the imagination. When I was a kid, watching pro wrestling was my porn because it was one of the few times I could see male bodies with bare chests and bare legs. The bodies, of course, weren’t always the best; male body consciousness didn’t begin until much later and didn’t cross over into professional wrestling until even later than that.

One of my earliest crushes was Bruno Sammartino.

Bruno-Sammartino

He was one of the hottest wrestlers of the period. Thickly muscled, hairy, and there was always a tantalizing bit of a bulge in his trunks. He was the ultimate daddy, frankly, even though I didn’t know what a daddy was at the time.

And then, of course, there was Kevin Von Erich. Those legs! That lean muscled body! He was not built like any other wrestler, and he remained an obsession for me for years. And in those yellow trunks, again, there was a bulge.

Most wrestlers of the period didn’t have bulges in their trunks. I think this had something to do with what they wore under their trunks; modesty in the 1960’s and 1970’s world of professional wrestling was still a thing. Their trunks were also high-waisted (see above) so you couldn’t see what are now called “cum gutters” and they also didn’t highlight asses. The cheeks were completely covered, and again, the waistline was so high they sometimes made the ass look flat (or maybe the ass was flat; you never know). Pro wrestling was “family entertainment” and not supposed to be masturbatory fantasy material for gay men.

BGEast, however, which has always billed itself as being for gay men, has had some amazing bulges throughout its history.

Cruze, of course, was one of my earlier favorites. He was also pretty hung; and wasn’t afraid to strip down completely for the cameras.cruze

Jose was another one–a nasty heel, one of the nastiest to ever grace the mats and ring at BGEast, he was also hung like a horse and loved to show it off.

Josh Goodman and myself were no slouches, either.

And then there’s Jobe “The Centerpiece” Zander.

The next time I went in front of the cameras, it was Mr. Centerpiece himself I saw across the ring from me.

Leaving Las Vegas

In one of those wonderful moments of serendipity, I had a speaking engagement in Las Vegas the same weekend BGEast was taping there. And guess who else was in town that weekend?

Yup, none other than Josh Goodman.

0803_lg

I actually taped two matches while I was in Las Vegas, but getting to wrestle Mr. Joshua was a dream come true for me.

0802_lg

So I actually got to wrestle two muscle gods in Las Vegas…but I digress. We’re talking about Josh Goodman here. I’ll tell you about the other one some other time, if you’re lucky and you play your cards right.

With all due respect, I didn’t look too bad at the time myself.

0704_lg

And I gave him some competition in the bulge department, too.

0204_lg

But still, it’s not hard to think you don’t look so great when you’re standing next to Mr. Joshua. I mean…his body is pretty fucking outstanding. In fact, when I first saw him in his trunks, I thought yeah maybe I should stop eating carbs.

Sigh.

I have to say, though, this match is one of my favorites. Josh is a lot of fun to wrestle; and he definitely put me through the ringer physically. I mean…

h0806_lg0813_lg

I mean, fucking ouch.

But I am a firm believer in turn about being fair play, you know? If you dish it out, you’d best be able to take it.

0215_lg

And you know, when you’re wrestling someone with a body like that, ripped and big and strong, there are just so many viable targets.

You do it to me, I do it to you.

0232_lg

And maybe I did target that bulge a bit. It was just sitting there, waiting for it, you know?

What a great match! The other two matches on Motel Madness 13 are pretty great, too. Check it out.

 

The Body Beautiful

Josh (that’s MR. JOSHUA to you!) Goodman has had one of the longest running careers in BGEast History.

Being fucking gorgeous doesn’t hurt.

10_lg

Well, the blonde tips weren’t the best hair choice, but look at that body.  I mean, LOOK at that body.

43_lg

He also looks good from behind.

I’m not really sure which of his matches was the first I watched, or when I became a fan, but I know I really enjoyed his match with Brick Burnett, Undagear 10. It was a great match, two hot guys, and they wound up stripped down to thongs, as I recall. I watched that one until the tape wore out.

I was also a big fan of his match with The Brooklyn Bodywrecker on the Josh Goodman Spotlight DVD.

And of course, there’s the bulge.

11_lg

You can’t  help but notice it; I once jokingly referred to it as “the third wrestler.” He’s won the fan vote for Best Bulge a number of times. It is impressive, and without fail, he’ll reach into his trunks and adjust it several times in every match. Josh is arrogant, handsome and chiseled, and even when he is getting his ass kicked, he goes down arrogant. He’s at home in every venue–ring, matron, gazebo, wrestleshack, backyard–and always is in perfect physical condition. He’s got crazy mad skills, and keeps up the arrogant patter in that thick Boston accent nonstop.

He was on my list of BGEast wrestlers I wanted to fight, and it actually happened.

Next: Motel Madness 13

Head Scissors

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.

0705_lg

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.

0731_lg

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.

0722_lg

It was a really hot match.
