New Skin

You may have noticed that I've stopped using the online name "Stay Puft."  I am now using the name "Sean Pford."  I hope you don't think this means I'm not being true to myself.  On the contrary.  Stay Puft wasn't my real name at all.  It was merely my nom de plume.  (That's French for "name de plume.")  And while I never intentionally meant to mislead anyone, I HAVE heard from an AWFUL lot of Ghostbusters fans who have been disappointed at all the wrestling and the lack of ghostbusting.

I'm excited about this fresh start.  I've got a name now!  A wonderful name I've mentioned before, by the way.  That even derives from Stay Puft.  And I'm sure "Stay Puft" is probably copyrighted anyway, so where would THAT land me when I become famous?

Actually, very little will change around here.  My initials are even the same, so those of you who called me "SP" can keep right on doing so (that always made me feel special).  In fact, I've heard that when people change their names, they often keep something similar (such as the same initials) as a means to preserve their identity.  (Well, they said that on MTV's "Teen Wolf," but they've never lied to me before.)  I have a very shallow online footprint, so the "Stay Puft to Sean Pford" thing will also be happening on all the social media I never use, and will affect very few.

I don't think I can sum things up any better than Michelle Pfeiffer's Catwoman (and there's someone else with a silent P in their name!):

"I don't know about you, Miss Kitty, but I feel so much yummier."

Order Today!

Stupid me for not bringing this up earlier.  But today's the last day to pre-order Steve Grand's debut album on Kickstarter.  Think about it!  The first openly gay country musician since...names escape me.  $10 gets a download of the album when it comes out.  $25 gets a physical copy.  Check it out!  Act today!

Edge And Matt Hughes Friday

I can't believe when I posted about Randy Orton and Batista yesterday I thought it was Friday, until I went to title it "Randy Friday" and remembered that it wasn't yet.

I can't believe Edge (center) and Matt Hughes (far right) were in the same place at the same time.  I can't believe it happened like a half hour away from me and I didn't know about it.

I can't believe how hot this picture of Matt Hughes is.

I can't believe how much I like this Matt Hughes quote:

"If you're undefeated, then you're not fighting the right people." --Matt Hughes

Pink And Blue And Hot All Over

Movimus Wrestling: Connor Flynn vs. Kevin Harris, Match 3

Last time Kevin Harris and Connor Flynn faced off (which was their second match against each other), things pretty much went Kevin's way, but since Connor did better in their first match, I had wondered when they would face off again, for a tie-breaker.

It turns out their third face-off comes out tomorrow (Thursday), March 27, at Movimus Wrestling.  But I get an early look at it, because I'm lucky.  And you get an early look at it through me, because you're lucky.  (Thank you, Movimus!)

Kevin Harris (in pink) is tough as ever.  Connor Flynn (in blue) is chill as ever.  In my review of the last match these guys had, I confessed to being a Kevin Harris fan.  My estimation of him has only gone up in this match.  Maybe it's the bright pink speedos--I'm a sucker for a guy in pink.  Kevin exudes enough confidence where he's just DARING anybody to question his toughness.  Not that Connor does--these two have never been about trash talk or macho posturing, just the pure grappling.

Since this IS their third match, and kind of a tie-breaker, I really don't want to give too much away.  But I will say some stuff.  Questions ARE answered.  There IS a decisive victor.  But I certainly hope this isn't the last time these two go up against each other.  Because if you ask me, defeat is certainly accepted a little grudgingly on one side.

Look at this photo from Movimus Wrestling, and I shouldn't have to explain why Kevin Harris makes me gasp.

Big Bruno

Bruno Sammartino.  'Cause sometimes you're in the mood for someone big and tough and honest.  And hot as hell.

I find this picture strangely erotic.  In my head there's a fantasy: The big strong dumb fighter being treated like property by his sleazy owners in the suits who exploit him to line their own pockets.  Bastards!

Totally Studly Fight Purse

Alright, digital hotness.  Pit Fighter was an arcade game from 1990 that came over to such consoles as the Super Nintendo and the Sega Genesis.  Even before Mortal Kombat, it used footage of actual actors for the fighters instead of drawn characters.  One of the main characters is an ex-professional wrestler named Buzz, played by one Bill Chase.  Bill Chase was very hot.  Since the game lists Buzz' height and weight at 6'2, 226 lbs., it's probably safe to assume these were Bill Chase's vital statistics as well.  You know, I never actually had this game, but I DO remember an ad for it in a gaming magazine at the time.

Video games were such a great way for a boy to enjoy muscular fighting hotness without drawing as much attention to himself as if he, say, watched wrestling.  ANYWAY, without further ado, Bill Chase in...Pit Fighter!  (It's kind of weird, but still hot, right?  I mean it's digital but not even cartoony, it's still a real guy, you know?)

Bill Chase getting choked out!

Bill Chase in all his glory!

Bill Chase impresses with a double bicep pose!

Oh no, Bill's in trouble!

Bill Chase: Too hot for a mask!

Bill Chase...STRANGLED!

Ooh, piledriver!

Overhead pressing some biker chick!

Separating Wheat From Chaff

Since my dream muscle jobber Alex Ardenti (6'1, 250) became a prolific and successful photographer and director, it DOES make image searches tricky, since it brings up images of photographs that he's TAKEN, when he isn't the subject of said photographs.  So this post is to celebrate the man behind the lens.  These images are assuredly of Alex Ardenti himself.  I've separated the wheat from the chaff for you here, so you can sit back and enjoy these all-wheat photos.  (Or do I mean chaff?  Whichever one's good.  Yeah, that's wheat.)

And again, from my favorite Ardenti era (this time, with a bonus "Film Grain" filter!):
