How Strong Are You?

Also in Ring Of Honor's Best In The World 2012 : Hostage Crisis event held in New York last week was an elimination match between three competitors - Roderick Strong, Tomasso Ciampa (sporting  weird blonde facial hair), and Jay Lethal. Scroll down to see who won.

Is this it? Nope, not quite.

Here it is...the winning pin. Roderick Strong was victorious and held on to the ROh TV Title. Yay!

Mike vs. Mike

At Ring Of Honor's Best In The World: Hostage Crisis show held in New York on June 24, two Mikes faced each other in an impromptu bout - Mike Bennett and Mike Mondo. Even though Mondo won this round, you can expect to see these two in a "real" match very soon. My only complaint about this bout? Both of the wrestlers have too much clothing on! Boo!

Let's talk trash.

Mike gets cocky.


That's it...take it off! (Drat. He didn't.)

That'll teach you to mess with a man in pink! 

Uh-oh...sneaky pin.

Who's the winner? THIS guy!

Next time, I'll just wrestle without a shirt on.

Pre-match make out.

Fashion Imitates Pro Wrestling

Wrestlers, boxers, and gladiators were the inspiration for the Versace Spring 2013 Collection shown recently in Milan. The runway featured models wearing stylized ring jackets, boots and "championship belts."

Here are some wrestlers who could carry these high fashion looks well.

So Fab

Here's Fabiano Rolento in a recent match for Ohio Valley Wrestling. This guy (real name Khalil Gaspard) used to wrestle as Omar Akbar, but now he's got a different gimmick. I guess you can say he's versatile. (Photos by Pamela Barnett)
