Body Shots : The Photo Shot

Time for another set of publicity shots. These beefcake wrestlers comb their hair, grease up their torsos, and do a few sets of push-ups just for our viewing pleasure. Who's got the best photo in this bunch?

Hammer Time

Here's Alexander Hammerstone in a recent match against "The Gentlemen Brawler" Eric Right from West Coast Wrestling Connection's September 12th broadcast. Two things. First, Hammerstone is looking very ripped these days. If you look at some of his earliest photos and compare his physique then to his physique now, I think you'd be quite impressed, too. Second, Eric Right. What's with the "old-timey" wrestler look that we've been seeing on wrestlers like UK's Tyler Bate and WWE's The Vaudevillians? Does anyone have any theories as to why this micro-trend in wrestling is popular? Anyway, you can watch Hammerstone vs Right by clicking here

P.S. There's also a match between Ashton Vuitton and Dan Joseph in the same video.

Muscle Monday : Hugo Knox

A very good friend of this blog/long-time contributor David emailed a set of new photos featuring Hugo Knox, a former British pro football player (or soccer if that's what you prefer) turned pro wrestler for NXT in the USA. Knox was sidelined for months due to an injury, but is back in action. Also back, his polka dot ring gear. Thanks for these amazing shots, David!

Bonus Pic. David also included this shot of Finn Balor (formerly known as Fergal "Prince" Devitt) "in some crazy action." I also see Dash Wilder  (formerly known as Steven Walters) in that beefcake pile-up.
