Who doesn’t like ‘NEW’? For weeks Rock Hard has been teasing us with a new logo and colorful promotional posters but it is now that we get the full reveal. Rock Hard 2.0 introduces the company’s new studio where ‘gym’ is the new black! And to top everything off they are giving us a new addition to the RHW roster: beautiful and sexy Jax Brewer!
Jax is one of the most stunning men to debut in the underground wrestling scene in months. We actually haven’t seen a new face in Rock Hard since Catalog 21 but it has been definitely worth the wait. RHW has fittingly dubbed him ‘The Golden Boy” and probably not only honoring his luscious skin tone. Jax almost has it all: the most photogenic smile in the roster, huge furry pecs, bulging muscles, alluring sex appeal and lots of confidence. The only thing missing? Well, maybe a bit of experience but if we take into account he’s up against our favorite menacing redhead I’d say that’s a GREAT thing!
Austin is fresh on the heels of (SPOILER ALERT) his KOTR4 victory and after leaving Dash out cold 🙁 in RHW previous studio he earned the privilege of inaugurating Rock Hard’s new set. There he is, lifting weights and pumping those monster biceps in the new gym space while he waits for a new challenger.
“Someone ordered an ass-kicking?” is one of Jax’s opening lines. It seems like overconfidence is a must in order to be recruited by RHW. Time after time we have seen how the rookies that enter the black-and-blue ring seem unable to perceive REAL danger. My bet is that the RHW boss has made this part of his plan using this almost pathological defect in our favor. What does that mean? It means that we are treated to a 7-minute opening beating that serves as the rookie’s welcome! Austin works Jax good, stretching him, stomping him and forcing him to admit “Austin Cooper is…” “…A fat pussy!” That’s what Jax says while he is trapped by Austin and his pecs are being pummelled by ‘The Tactician’s’ giant forearm. He could just have finished the sentence with “…the man” just as he was supposed to, but no. The newbie is taking this seriously and even though he probably knows this will fuel Austin’s anger even more, he stands his ground by retorting back to all of the redhead taunts.
Jax finally sees an opening when Austin comes around to pick him up for more punishment. A low blow shows ‘The Golden Boy’ is not so out of touch and did probably read the “Tips for Your First RHW Match” leaflet from his welcome package. As I said before, you can tell the college boy can’t match Austin in experience, but oh boy, does he look cute trying to capitalize on his opportunity. Jax is all over Austin, carrying him while demanding Austin to call him “his daddy”, moving on top him, rolling him around the ring and even suplexing the veteran! You know I can’t help the biology references around here, but Jax’s energy can only be described as the one from an adorable young lion cub getting the chance to kill his first prey. Although inexperienced, he gives everything he’s got in order to make sure this mountain of muscles is his to own, suffocating Austin as he moves from hold to hold without stopping for a single second to rest. But this prey is much more than what Jax can chew. An early sleeper attempt by Jax sets the scene for a marvelous strenght show from Austin, as he stands up from the mat with Jax still on his back until he smashes him against a turnbuckle. This leads the way for more corner punishment and the beginning of the end for Jax’s first ever round.
I don’t like spoilers but with everything I have told you so far I think you have enough info to know what happens in Round 2. Jax gets an opportunity for redemption, but we all know Austin is ‘The Man’ and although many things may have changed around RHW others will surely stay the same.
I personal dig the new gym setting a lot. It is like that private wrestling studio we all would love to own so we could make our sweaty late night fantasies come true. I can already envision someone tied to that punching bag, some one-upping weightlifting challenges and a ringside beating going on.
After almost five years of operation, Rock Hard renews its look to match their content evolution (try watching some stuff from Catalog 1) while maintaining everything we love about it: from the iconic royal blue ring mat to the incredibly handsome specimens in astonishing video quality. Now that their new space multiplies the possibilities for new themes and scenarios, I just can’t wait to see what RHW have in store for us next!
