Walters vs. Papadon (Part 1)

Here are pics of a match between Steven Walters and The Greek God Papadon which was held in New York several weeks ago. There are a lot of great shots of this hard-fought battle, so I split them into two batches for your viewing pleasure.

Jim "Shoots" Jessie Godderz

Regular contributor Jim from Chicago emailed to tell me he spent the previous week attending five Ohio Valley Wrestling shows (okay, I'm officially jealous). Jim wrote: "Here are some shots of Jessie Godderz I took on Tuesday Feb 21st at the Davis Arena in Louisville KY.  His opponent that evening was Elvis Pridemore.  Jessie quickly won the match and Elvis left the building, defeated." Jim's work is fantastic, isn't it? It's like he takes us into the ring and makes us feel like we are part of the action. In the close-ups of Jessie, you can see every muscle definition. Awesome! Thanks, Jim! Looking forward to the next batch of OVW pics!

A Message from Tristan Baldwin

In case you missed it, adult video wrestler Tristan Baldwin (BG East and Thunder's Arena's Aryx Quinn) left a message on the comments section in the recent post devoted to him. Tristan says: "Hey hey! Just wanted to drop in and say 'Thank You' for the exposure and support of both Beefcakes of Wrestling(BoW), and to all the fans as well. My 'end goal' so to speak, is to start trying to influence the adult movie wrestling industry in a manner that is more geared to reflect what the FANS what to see...not merely what the studios are serving up. Where have all the storylines gone? Why all the cliche matches? Time to mix things up a bit!" Tristan's new website is coming soon so watch out for it!  

Johnny Be Good

Regular contributor David emailed me these photos he took of Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW)'s "classic wrestler," Johnny Curtis. I don't think Johnny has ever taken a bad picture, do you? Thanks for the awesome pics, David! Keep 'em coming!

Uh-oh, Johnny's in trouble.

Who Is Tyler Garceau?

Tyler Garceau is a former Abercrombie & Fitch model turned natural bodybuilder turned pro wrestler. As a model, he maintained a lean and ripped physique but he gradually bulked up so he could fulfill his dream of becoming a wrestler (he says his role model is John Cena). He started training in 2010 and had his first pro match in October of that year. You can watch his debut match on the Beefcakes of Wrestling channel on YouTube. 6 ' 1", 240 pound Tyler turns 25 on March 2.

Big Squash Jobs

"Tribute to a throw back era of low budget wrestling where wrestlers had thick gym bodies and the matches were slower and more methodical with lots of sweat." If that description of this video offering from OldSchoolBrawlers on YouTube doesn't pique your interest, I don't know what will.
