It's titan vs. titan in this match from 1990 -- watch "The Russian Nightmare" Nikita Koloff ( 278 pounds) go up against The Annihilator (285 pounds) here. That's a lot of beef in one ring! My only complaint is that this bout ended too quickly.

Who's the beefcake being completely dominated by his much larger opponent in this 2009 match from ECW? Why it's Dustin Starr. Click on Dustin's name in the Labels link below to see older posts of him.

Still available (?) from the BG Enterprises DVD online store is the classic Hollywood Musclehunk Wrestling 4 collection featuring Steve Sterling, Shane Steel, Scott Randsome, Roy Hastings, Cliff Conlin (as a very hot referee) and other beefcakes from the early 1990s.

Joining five other rookies on the current season of WWE NXT is former TV-newsman-turned-ring commentator-turned-pro-wrestler Byron Saxton. Saxton used to go by the name of Bryan Kelly during his stint as a TV news reporter and indie pro wrestler. When Saxton joined Florida Championship Wrestling as a ring announcer and commentator, he was given his new moniker. Here are shots of Bryan/Byron throughout his career.

Back in the early 1990s, the World Wide Web introduced us to Steve Sterling via the wrestling videos of CAL and BG East Enterprises. Although relatively short at only 5 feet, 6 inches, this former Mr. Teen USA looked big and powerful thanks to his amazing muscular definition. I wonder what Sterling has been up to since he "retired" from performing in wrestling videos; does anyone know? You can watch a clip of Sterling here.

It's nice to see handsome indie pro wrestler Josh Daniels still in action; I thought he had retired or something because I hadn't seen recent pictures of him in a while. Here he is in a JAPW match against John Gresham held last December 10 in New Jersey. (Photos by Scott Finkelstein)
