The Mistress Of Wrestlemania 2

Who DOESN'T love it when wrestling's not afraid to have cheesy celebrity crossovers? Well, I mean the INTERNET doesn't love it. But I, personally, was only happy when I found out Elvira had commentated the LA portions of Wrestlemania 2 with Jesse Ventura and Lord Alfred Hayes.

Hey, 2K! Here's your next wrestling game celebrity DLC right here!

THIS MATCH! A-Kid vs Will Ospreay - Total Rumble 9 - 30/03/2019

A-Kid vs. Will Ospreay is currently one of my favorite matches. It's kind of a squash match and a competitive match all at the same time.  Which sounds like it doesn't make sense.  But one of them seems to be outclassed, out of his depth, and yet never stops fighting back the entire time.

Even the arena feels like a character in this match. It feels like nothing I would EVER see televised and that saddens me.

At 27:44, Will has A-Kid set up, and makes sure A-Kid stays in place... that at 27:54, he can continue delivering kicks to the kid's unprotected face.

At 29:09, Will prepares a devastating elbow attack...

...but at 29:14, A-Kid collapses before Will can connect.

And at 29:16, Will starts to get pissed...

Will Success Spoil Sean Pford?

Why, yes!  Yes, I am THE Sean Pford, as interviewed in an article in Input Magazine by Chris Stokel-Walker.  No, I don't mind being recognized!  No, it wasn't my first time being interviewed!  In junior high, a reporter for the school paper once asked me what my most embarrassing moment was.  I answered, "Nothing," and did not appear in the completed article.  But this time, yes, I'm there, along with some other pretty big names in online wrestling jobber circles.  One of my sentences even got printed in big letters between paragraphs, marking me as, in all modesty, pretty legit.

All in all, a pretty thoughtful piece about wrestling, jobbers, fetishization, and, er, "middle-aged gay guys."  Read it here!

Pretty Deadly Dancing

Before they were Pretty Deadly, "Playboy" Lewis Howley and Sammy Smooth (eventually to be known as Sam Stoker) made an entrance at 4TB Wrestling that I just love, showing off their dirty dancing.  They looked like they were having fun, the crowd was into it, pro wrestling at its best.  Source videos listed after the images!

The videos:

Thanks, Rey!  'Cause day-um!

Best Gear: Ron Reeves


Best Wrestling Gear goes to handsome Ron Reeves.  It's sexy AND funny at the same time.  It's a visual pun: Yes, it's a Ninja Turtle, and his nose even bulges out appropriately.  Well done, Mr. Reeves, well done.

The images are from Ron Reeves & Milad Akbar vs. Cousin Eddie & Backwoods Brown.

The WWE 2K22 Leak Part 2 (And Pretty Deadly)

Or, maybe ALL the information in the 2K22 leak was accurate.  But that means the nWo edition was accurate too, and like I said, I'm never opposed to more Hall and Nash (particularly Hall) in my life.

Something else about the game: The return of GM Mode offers the chance to take control of Raw, SmackDown, NXT or NXT UK.  They included NXT UK!  Does that mean there will be a lot more NXT UK stars included in the game?  Will they include 287-day-reigning NXT UK Tag Team Champions Pretty Deadly, Lewis Howley (blond) and Sam Stoker (brunet)?  One can hope!

I love these guys.  I think Pretty Boy Wrestlers should be encouraged.  I like Lewis, because Legolas.

The Mighty Hammerstone

"Our hero, our hero claims a warrior's heart..." 

Alexander Hammerstone is professional wrestling's big mighty Viking.  Right out of Skyrim (more video games!).  And how wonderful that he's right in the middle of a story in MLW Azteca, which sees the revival of Lucha Underground!

AJZ, The Golden Boy

My newest wrestling crush: AJZ (Andreas Ziegler).  Just found his stuff recently on YouTube.  I don't think I need to go into why I like him.  He's pretty gorgeous and I'm pretty shallow.  (He kind of reminds me of a young "Prototype"-era Cena.)  He wins sometimes, which is awesome.  He gets his ass kicked sometimes, which is REALLY awesome.  Trunks?  Tiny.  Muscles?  Huge.  Ass?  Perfect.  Hair?  Handle.  Oops, I guess I DID go into why I like him.
