I remember years ago seeing pictures online of some guy who called himself "The Underwear Model" Eric Priest. It seemed like such an arrogant if hilarious name to go by and Eric (real name Michael Boehne) eventually went on to use other colorful monikers such as "The Pimp of the Midwest", "The Epitome of Masculinity," and "The Gold Standard of Professional Wrestling." Citing a bad knee, Eric retired from pro wrestling in 2008. Here are some pictures from different stages of his career.

A while back, I posted a couple of photos of the massive muscleman you see below, but I didn't know who he was. Recently, one of this blogs' visitors, musclemanfan_nz, identified him as Matt Duvall, a competitive bodybuilder turned pro wrestler. The photos of this match (Matt vs. Ruffy Silverstein, photos by Christine J. Coons) were taken in 2005; I haven't been able to find anything wrestling-related since then. Matt can be found on the roster of PTW Wrestling, but it seems that site hasn't been updated in a while. If anyone knows what became of this behemoth, please let us know. (The last photo of Matt shows him in freakishly huge bodybuilder mode and is more current than the match photos.)

Unbeknownst to me until now, 34 year old UK wrestler Nigel McGuinness is on the roster of TNA Wrestling where he goes by the name Desmond Wolfe. Here are some recent images of Nigel/Desmond as well as a picture of what he used to look like before his "makeover."
