Chest Vs. Abs


From WWE.com, images from the 07/17/17 episode of Raw's match between Elias Samson (of the meaty and powerful chest) and Finn Balor (formerly Fergal Devitt, whose abs NEVER fail to impress).

Meet Wyatt


And then we have Aaron O'Connell's character, Wyatt, who got me to start watching "The Haves and the Have Nots" in the first place.  Who apparently Tyler Perry saw as a Hot Plumber in a commercial on TV and said, "I want HIM in my show."  Which speaks VOLUMES for Tyler Perry's taste, I must say.

And of all the characters on this show, Wyatt probably fits in best in a blog about jobbers.  He's such a hot broken mess.  He needs his face smacked AND he needs cuddled, often at the same time.  He's damaged and lovely and whenever they want to drum up a season by saying, "Someone DIES," he's ALWAYS one of the possible victims.  May they continue to keep him around, so they can threaten to take him away.

Meet Officer Justin


Ah, Officer Justin, played by Nicholas James on "The Haves and the Have Nots."  The character of Officer Justin is married (to a woman), but is a closeted gay man who initially deals with his inner jobber struggles by abusing, harrying, harassing, and downright worrying Jeffery (you remember, the openly gay character).  As Jeffery uses Psychology to help Officer Justin begin to accept who he is, Justin gets way less rape-y but way more jealous and stalk-y.  C'est la vie!

Meet Mitch


6'4 may be  nothing unusual in the world of professional wrestling, but it makes Mitch, played by 6'4 Brett Davis on "The Haves and the Have Nots," seem absolutely HUGE beside his mortal co-stars.

Remember sweet Benny from a couple days ago?  Mitch is Benny's friend, and works with him.  Mitch is sweet like Benny, but while Benny is maybe unsweetening as time goes on, Mitch has family ties to the mob that he's trying to get away from.  So he's having to fight to BE sweet.

Plus he's huge and gruff-looking and -sounding, but those eyes and that smile, he's a gentle giant, really.  (And he reminds me of Zack Ryder a little bit.)

Meet Jeffery


From "The Haves and the Have Nots," Gavin Houston as Jeffery.  Now, when he was first on, he was a gay character who was up to some pretty shady tricks, and in a reverse of yesterday's Benny, Jeffery got nicer as the show went on.  At first there was some complaining online about a gay guy being depicted as evil, but (1) EVERYBODY on the show is evil, so it balances out, and (2) what, gay guys CAN'T be evil?  Ha!

For some reason, when Gavin Houston took his shirt off, I just wasn't prepared for him to be so ripped.  He disarmed me with his sweetness--not that sweet guys can't be ripped.  Obviously.  I don't know WHY I wasn't thinking, "I'll bet he's ripped under that sweater."  In retrospect, pretty stupid of me; is a guy going to be on a soap opera and NOT be ripped?
