Jim "Shoots" Claudio Castagnoli (Part 1)

Regular contributor Jim from Chicago sent me a fantastic batch of Claudio Castagnoli photos he took recently. Jim writes: "CHIKARA Pro Wrestling made their return to Illinois and their debut in Chicago on 6/24/11 at the Logan Square Auditorium. Claudio defeated Hallowicked with a foot-on-ropes pin." Awesome shots, Jim! I feel like I'm in the ring with the hunky Swiss-Italian wrestler. 

Nice ass!

The Emperor's New Clothes

When Joe of Ringside At Skull Island posted images of the ROH title match between Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards on his blog, I had to do a double-take: was Davey Richards really wearing bikini-cut ring gear? Although Davey used to wrestle in skimpy white trunks several years ago, he's been wearing long spandex tights in his matches for ROH and other indie federations. I'm glad he ditched the tights for something more revealing, as you can see in these photos from his recent title match. (Photos by Scott Finkelstein)
