Where would we be without the YouTube Channel My Wrestling Obsession? This channel has hundreds, yes, hundreds of wrestling matches featuring not just the biggest names in wrestling from past and present, but also many little known, semi-obscure wrestlers in independent companies all over the USA. Here's one such match that caught my eye recently : Incredible Indie WXW Muscle God Battle featuring Extreme Billy Dream vs Eric Cobian. This contest is originally from 2008, a few years before I even started this blog, and as you can expect, the quality of this video leaves much to be desired. But better a somewhat low resolution video than none at all, right? Here are some screen caps I made from this match.
The Champion - Billy Dream
The Challenger - Eric Cobian
Bonus Beefcake: This beefy bodybuilder/wrestler named John Baine was part of Cobian's posse.
Here's another wrestler who was brought to my attention by a blog reader who leaves comments signed "Anonymous" (he also introduced me to independent wrestler Evan Grey). Calling himself "The First Slovakian Pro Wrestler," Markus Mytra is from Slovakia, a small country in Europe with a population of not more than 6 million. Myra and his tag team partner in The Spartan Legion are the reigning tag team champions of Hungarian Championship Wrestling (HCW). There are some articles about Mytra, but they're written in what is either Hungarian or Slovakian, so I don't have any additional information to share with you. But you'll be seeing more of Mytra here on Beefcakes of Wrestling in the weeks to come. Stay tuned!
Two days ago, I posted this blog's first feature on independent wrestler Evan Grey. Here are screen caps of one of the matches included in that post, Evan Grey vs Mike James. In my opinion, Grey is still pretty green as a wrestler, but he does have potential. All he needs is more time and more experience.
