Mini-Post: Rewind - Matt Sydal

Here's a brief look back at American wrestler Matt Sydal (aka WWE's Evan Bourne).





Double Your Pleasure

This is the first full post on American independent wrestlers The Tate Twins. According to Cagematch.net, identical twin brothers Brandon and Brent Tate started their in-ring careers in 2009 (how old were they?) as the "Hawaiian Connection." Then in 2010, they were on the roster of Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) as The Baronis Brothers. It was when they were on Ring Of Honor starting in 2015 that the twins started to gain more attention as "The Boys," the flashy valets who accompanied  flamboyant Dalton Castle to the ring. They tried out for WWE late last year, but it seems they didn't make the cut as they continue to wrestle in the independent circuit. Hopefully we'll see more of them soon.

Mini-Post: Mexx vs Martin Pain

Here are some recent match pics between Mexx (or Mexxberg) and Martin Pain. I'll post the link to this match if it ever becomes available, but for now, here's their title match from July 2019.  Mexx's 2015 match against Chris Masters was also just made available on YouTube; you can watch it here.




Rewind: Jason Jordan

American wrestler Jason Jordan started his in-ring career with Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW), WWE's developmental territory, in 2011. In 2016, he was drafted to WWE's SmackDown brand where he and Chad Gable competed as a tag team called American Alpha. American Alpha quietly split up in the first semester of 2017 and Jordan went on to wrestle as singles competitor. In 2018, Jordan underwent surgery to treat a neck injury and had to stop wrestling while he recovered. It was then that WWE hired to be one of its producers, a position I believe he still holds today.

The Hungriest Man In Wrestling

I've heard of beefcakes who are not just professional wrestlers, but professional bodybuilders, actors, stuntmen, and fitness coaches, but this is the first time I've heard of a wrestler who's also a professional competitive eater. What's a competitive eater, you may be asking. A competitive eater (or speed eater) is someone who participates in a contest with other eaters to see who can eat the largest quantity of food in a short time period. The most common food eaten in these competitions are hotdogs in buns, although almost any type of food can be used (pizza, bacon, burgers, and so on). Calling himself "The Hungriest Man In Professional Wrestling," Megabyte Ronnie (real name Ronnie Hartman) is a world-ranked competitive eater (he ranks no. 18 in the world by Major League Eating).
Ronnie is a US Army veteran who now appears on Cody Rhodes' All Elite Wrestling (AEW) brand. Watch Megabyte Ronnie face Brian Cage in this recent AEW match and in this comedic scripted backyard match against his wrestler-friend PUF.
