Physical

One of the interesting things about BGEast, at least to me, is to see how the wrestlers’ bodies change from one video to another. (This is NOT, by the way, to be seen as an opportunity for anyone to rag on a wrestler’s appearance. I don’t put up with that shit. If you’re so fucking amazing, YOU put on a bikini and go in front of the cameras. Until you do, shut the fuck up. You can say, “not my type” which is noncommittal and fine.)

My own body changed and evolved, and could even look different in matches shot on the same weekend, depending on the gear.

Case in point: I taped the matches with Mitch Colby and Josh Goodman on the same weekend:

 

Maybe not so different; but on the left I look more defined and lean than I do on the right. But since we’re talking about how bodies can change and evolve from shoot to shoot, let’s try this comparison. Here I am during one shoot:

And here I am at another.

Now, differences can also be attributed to gear choices, lighting, and camera angles–it’s quite amazing what a difference that can make–but clearly, I am much more tan, leaner and more defined, in the top photo, for the match with Pink Puma, than I was in the lower, which is from the match with Gold Mantis.

And with me, hair can also make a difference.

Also important is how the trunks fit.

The higher the waist, in my case, the less defined I look. I have a big ribcage and a naturally high, long waist; but my pelvic bones are low. The higher the trunks sit on me, the bigger the pooch around my navel looks; if they fit lower, you can see the deep cum gutters running from the top of the hip bone down to the groin. (See top two pictures for an example.)

But this also can happen with other wrestlers, as well; some guys are big in some matches, smaller in others; bounce from ripped to shreds to slightly thicker. Chase LaChance, who debuted as a very lean muscle boy, has also appeared as bodybuilder huge. Some of the guys clearly are bodybuilders; you can see when they are bulking and when they are trimming down for competition–Braden Charron will sometimes be thicker, and others be darkly tanned and shredded.

One of my current favorites at BGEast, Big Joe Robbins, is one of those as well.

The first time I saw Big Joe–I was enthralled. There’s something awesome about big guys, big wrestlers. It’s always been a huge turn-in for me to take on bigger guys; it’s equally fun to not only dominate someone bigger, but it’s also kind of fun and hot to be overpowered, out-physicalled,  by someone much stronger and bigger. Why does that turn me on so much? I don’t know. That’s something I will probably unpack at some time. Take a look at him above; that muscularity and thickness, the sheer size of him; yes, I’d love to jump over the top ropes and see that in the other corner.

And then he can turn up looking like this:

More lean, definition showing, and more vascularity; look at those arms, pecs, and thighs. This Joe would also be a lot of fun.

Leaner and more tan; that bikini is sexy as fuck on him.

Dat ass, too. You can truly appreciate how thickly he’s muscled in profile. This is someone who could slam the fuck out of me, bearhug me until I can’t resist any more, toss me from corner to corner like a practice dummy.

And yes, that turns me on.

I love watching Joe in action; I love watching him overpower smaller guys, and I enjoy seeing the smaller guys turn the tables on him, get the upper hand for a while, but I never ever doubt who’s coming out the winner. It’s gonna always be the big guy.

FUCKIN’ LOOK AT THAT. I love the little silver mask that’s a call back to the Handsome Stranger, who eventually became a much bigger star under another name. That little mask obviously wouldn’t stay on for long in a match; this match, against Paladin on one of the Masked Mayhems, is one of my favorite Big Joe battles.

But the best was when he took on heel extraordinaire Dick Rick.

Taking a Beating

If you want to be a pro wrestler, you have to be able to take a beating. You have to be able to take a certain amount of pain, and it helps if, as I am, you are flexible. The more flexible you are, the more pain you can take and the more punishing holds you can survive.

If you can’t handle any of that, you have business getting in the ring. Because even the biggest, the strongest, the most skilled and bloodthirsty heel will have to take some pain at some point. You’re cruising along, having your own way with your opponent, and then the next thing you know you make a mistake and WHAM! You’re going to be on the receiving end for a while.

And if it’s a skilled dude who knows what he’s doing, you might not get back in control of the match.

Jobe put me through the ringer.

And I have to respect how much he enjoyed it.

0131_lg

I mean, he really put me through it. He worked over my abs, my back, my neck, my head, and even my legs.

And like me, he sweats a lot. There were sweat puddles all over the ring.

But….you’ve always got to be on your guard, and never get overconfident–or things will flip back the other way.
