You know how some men become more attractive when they get older? Hollywood stars George Clooney and Patrick Dempsey became much hotter after they turned 30. Such is the case with British wrestler Nathan Cruz. Only 22 years old, Cruz gets hunkier and more good-looking with every passing year (compare what he looks like in his most recent pics to what he used to look like in 2010, 2011 and 2012). This David Beckham look-alike has been a pro wrestler since 2010 although as early as 2006, he had already started training.  You can follow "The Showstealer" on his official Facebook page by clicking here. To see older posts on Cruz, click his name on the label at the bottom of this post.

Treasure Chest

Here's Trent Baretta in a match against Sonjay Dutt for Pro Wrestling Syndicate's Supercard Night #1 show held on April 4 in Metuchen, New Jersey. Even if you cropped Trent's head out of these shots, I'll bet you could identify him just by looking at his chest. (Photos by Scott Finkelstein)

A regular contributor and good friend of this blog, David, emailed me this set of pics he took of indie wrestler Rocky Santiago. David describes Rocky as having a "gymnast's body -- amazing pecs, abs, and glutes." Ah yes, those glutes. They probably deserve a blog of their own. ;-) Thanks for these great shots, David!

Oh, Argo!

Back in January, I posted a side-by-side photo of Roderick Strong and Ryan Reynolds (click here to see it) because to me they kind of look alike. Today, I came across this image on the TNA Wrestling-Philippines page on Facebook. Hmmm....

Four Years Ago This Month...

Justin Gabriel was being groomed for WWE; back then, he was part of the roster of Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW). Here he is pre-Nexus and pre-RAW, sans the facial hair, but in his trademark daring little "speedos" (with exposed flesh no less!). These photos are from the archives of regular contributor and good friend of this blog, Jim from Chicago, who says he took these shots in April 2009. Thanks for sharing these great pics with us, Jim!
