Super Hard!


2015.03.08_CW_RandyGuido_title

I’m hooked with this little gem from Cameron Wrestler. Fantasy Fights, released last Saturday, fulfills my current craving of watching a bit of cosplay and superheroes inside my wrestling videos. The match puts not-so-tall but dark and handsome Randy Winters in Superman gear, being destroyed by the brutal, raw macho power of Guido Genatto (!).

Estoy enganchado con esta pequeña gema de Cameron Wrestler.  Fantasy Fights, lanzado el pasado sábado, cumple con mi antojo de ver un poco de cosplay y superhéroes dentro mis videos de lucha. Esta lucha pone al no tan alto pero pelinegro y guapísimo Randy Winters en traje de Superman, siendo destruido por el poder bruto de Guido Genatto (!).

Guido doesn’t actually plain a villain; he plays alpha-male who doesn’t need a hero to be safe, or pretty much what he really is.  His look includes the tightest of the speedos he could find (as always) with teasing untied strings dangling in front, (non-wrestling) boots and MMA gloves. Gloves!  As if I needed another reason to lust after him!

Guido realmente no hace de villano; él hace de un hombre alpha que no necesita de un héroe para sentirse seguro, bastante parecido a lo que es en la realidad. Su look incluye los speedos más pequeños que encontró con las cuerdas de ajuste colgando de frente buscando nuestra atención, botas (no de lucha) y guantes tipo MMA. ¡Guantes! ¡Como si necesitara otra razón para desear ver más de el!

At the other corner is our hero Randy Winters. I don’t know how he slipped under my radar, but I feel like I’m about spend a unhealthy amount of hours and hours on Youtube watching his body… of work over the next days. He wears a Superman costume with visible underwear lines. We get pretty lucky as whatever he has underneath fails to hide his bulge giving us a full VPL. This feels like it was made custom made for me!

En la otra esquina está nuestro héroe Randy Winters. No se como éste se escapó de mi radar previamente, pero siento que estoy a punto de pasar una cantidad de horas enfermiza frente a Youtube buscando y viendo más de su cuerpo… de trabajo. Él usa un traje de Superman con ropa interior visible por debajo. Tenemos suertes, porque lo que sea que tiene debajo falla en dejarnos ver  su paquete. ¡Esto parece como si estuviera hecho a mi medida!

This is all I’m going to tell you about the match: it is a squash match where the hero is effectively decimated by the predatory dirty ways of his opponent. Superman has it chances, actually knocking the bigger man down a couple of times. But Guido returns the favor in each instance, attempting to break his “super legs”, punching his “super face” and crushing his “super dick”.

Lo único que le voy a decir de la lucha es que es la destrucción de un héroe a manos de las manera depredadores y sucias de su oponente. Superman tiene sus oportunidades, y de hecho logra tumbar al tipo grande en varias ocasiones. Pero Guido le devuelve el favor cada vez, atentando romper sus “super piernas”, golpeando su “super caras” y  aplastando su “super verga”.

So, is it wrong to side with the heel instead of the hero? Well, that is somehow how Guido lefts me feeling as he punishes Randy Superman in the sexiest ways we have seen him yet. Just wait until Guido presents Superman with his “kryptonite”!

Así que, ¿está mal si  estoy del lado del rudo en lugar del héroe? Bueno, eso es lo que Guido me hace sentir cuando castiga a Randy Superman de las maneras más sexy que lo hayamos visto hasta ahora. ¡Sólo esperen a que Guido le presente a Superman con su “kriptonita”!

I include the customary examples with this post but to truly believe me you have to see this by yourself.  Beware, because if you are like me, halfway through the match you will find yourself becoming Super Hard! And your superpower? An uncontrollable explosion! KAPOW!

Aquí en esta entrada les incluyo los ejemplos de siempre pero para realmente creerme tienen que ver esto por ustedes mismos. Cuidado, porque si son como yo, ¡a mitad de luchas se encontrarán convirtiéndose en Super Duro! ¿Tu superpoder? ¡Una explosión incontrolable! KAPOW! finaldot

A Better Black

2014.12.21_Black_title
On my last review, I talked about how much I dreaded one of the performers plain black trunks. I kept thinking about it and I realized that I was bothered more by the “plain” than by the “black” part of it.

Black is the perfect go-to color for wrestlers because of its psychology. It visually makes a statement about strenght and power that serves to establish superiority what makes understandable that many performers will try to rock this color while in action. As a basic color, it is not hard to find a good pair of black trunks and it’s even easier to combine them with anything else. And as it is not-so-revealing, it makes a great pick for conservative or self-conscious performers.

But in homoerotic wrestling, plain, basic and conservative are not usually part of the equation. If a wrestler wants to wear black he needs to be aware that if he doesn’t combine it properly with other elements of design he will otherwise look like a basic bitch.

I have taken the liberty to make some observations about the use of black gear and write some very subjective guidelines about how to make a black gear look work:

2014.12.21_Black_title_1

Yes, sometimes it’s about the style. Mike Columbo shows four different looks here. It’s a gradient that starts at the top left with a full trunk look, and ends bottom right with a barely-there g-string. In other words, we are going from “I’m so basic” to “LOOK AT ME!”.

2014.12.21_Black_title_1

My favorite looks? The two in between. The top right one is the most masculine and conservative, yet still revealing with a deeper waist cut and higher thigh cut that perfectly encapsulates his assets. In that same match he later progresses into the bottom left thong which in all honesty is the reason why I bought that DVD. Every cut serves a purpose but it still it has to be selected according to the body type, assets and personality. And still, it’s not only about the cut…

Looks pretty basic at first, doesn’t it? This is an example of how you can portray a message not only through color, but through fabric. Finn Bálor (Prince Devitt) rocks a reptile/snake texture in his trunks that convey a primal message of strength and aggressiveness that black spandex alone would have never achieved. Of course fabric should be primarily functional, but the type of fabric and its finish can take something really basic and transform into a powerful statement.  The reflectiveness of the fabric also portrays elegance that combined with Bálor’s good looks and ripped body makes you wonder if you are watching NXT or a Fashion Week special. It all adds up to make my second favorite look in pro-wrestling. My favorite is an amazing combination of both the right cuts and fabrics.

First image: “Basic” Seth Rollins. Second Image: “MOTHER-FUCKING HOT!” Seth Rollins. Third image: “OH-MY-GOD-I-CAME!!!!” Seth Rollins. Evolving from his look of “The Shield” days (where we were neglected of watching him being shirtless), Seth now rocks a contemporary leathered superhero look which includes a sleeveless removable shirt. Completed with gloves, pads and belt, the look marries the smoothness of the structured leather and spandex with the rawness of the wet hair, beard and hairy torso creating what I think is is the most appealing look in pro-wrestling today.

Sometimes it’s not about the color not being right, but about the possibility of a better option. Being the covering color that it is, black just doesn’t seem like the best option when it comes to discern shadows and lights. Contrast is key when we something needs to be highlighted, and plain black is the worst option for it.

We know Chris Dickinson (Guido Genatto) is a natural heel that would obviously pick some plain black trunks. But he’s also been naturally gifted with a bulge that needs to be admired.  Just look at the difference when he switched to red. Now tell me, in which color do you want to see that bounce!?

Because everything works in both ways, Shane Haste delicious ass-ets are better appreciated when he is wedgied while using his black trunks, which provide better contrast against his skin. If he would have been wearing his current orange trunks we probably wouldn’t even notice the difference!

2014.12.21_Black_title_6

There are guys that look good no matter what they choose. Black, white, blue or red. Spandex, lycra, pleather, nylon. Whatever AJ Styles chooses to wear I’m good with. He is one of my first wrestling crushes and even though he is not so gay-friendly, I still check on him once in a while to see what he’s up to. His most recent roughed-up look features a full black ensemble that is more than OK with me because it is cohesive and sexy as hell. I’m not going to lie though, I do miss the colorful full length tights and squarecuts!

2014.12.21_Black_title_6

So what to do then? If a wrestler looks well using any color,I guess he should used them with a purpose: wear a color to describe his current state of mind, wear it according to his role in the match or simply mix it up so we don’t get bored!

2014.12.21_Black_title_7

Joshua Goodman in plain black squarecuts? BLASPHEMY! Joshua Goodman in silver squarecuts? HEAVEN!

2014.12.21_Black_title_7

Guys packin’ like this should be prohibited of using anything black. Seriously, with so many other millions of colors to choose it’s a sacrilege that Mr. Joshua ever used plain black trunks. There is just no logical reason. Knowing how much he likes the attention I doubt he would like to conceal that monster by using black. So, does he want to establish dominance? Well, that’s why he’s got a gigantic bulge to show LITERALLY who is the bigger man! If you are a ‘big’ wrestler, don’t try to hide the obvious. Embrace it and let it be part of the show. Just burn your plain black trunks.

2014.12.21_Black_title_8

Yes, there is always an exception. My favorite look of Joe Mazetti? His signature plain black trunks. Of course this guy can wear plain trunks because if you dare to call him out about it he will just tear you apart. The trunks may be simple but they are a great fit as they are high at the thighs which makes him look taller. And still without enough contrast, you can see he is packing!

2014.12.21_Black_title_8

Some guys just have enough personality to shine through anything including a pair of boring trunks. Joe’s aggressive demeanor and alpha attitude made up for the simplicity of his gear. Personality is any wrestler’s best accessory.

2014.12.21_Black_title_9

Sometimes it’s not about the color at all, but about some thing in specific that drives you crazy. For me, it’s the jockstrap, but for you it can be anything else. Of course Davey Richards has never wrestled in a jockstrap (that we know of), but in homoerotic wrestling we get a lot of jockstrap action and I find myself drawn to it, even if it’s black, white, orange, red, blue or green. Put a hot sweaty guy in a jockstrap and everything I wrote so far becomes meaningless!

2014.12.21_Black_title_9

Again, this is all heavily based on my opinion and you are more than welcome to share if you agree or disagree with any of this. Do you like plain black trunks? Or how do you think a black gear look can be upgraded? finaldot
