The Juicy One

A few days ago, my recurring feature Body Shots included a studio photo of one Danny Ramons. Never having featured Ramons here before, I thought I'd make up for it by giving him his own solo feature. Ramons went pro in 2003 and since then, he has also wrestled using the names Gravedigger, Cherry Ramons, and, most interestingly, Cherry Popper. Ramons has the word Juicy on the back side of his red ring gear and if you want to know why he calls himself The Juicy One, watch this: Cherry Ramons calls for Musica! Watch him wrestle Kody Lane here and Dominick Dallas Star here.

Throwback Thursday : Big Beef Showdown

Where would we be without the YouTube Channel My Wrestling Obsession? This channel has hundreds, yes, hundreds of wrestling matches featuring not just the biggest names in wrestling from past and present, but also many little known, semi-obscure wrestlers in independent companies all over the USA. Here's one such match that caught my eye recently : Incredible Indie WXW Muscle God Battle featuring Extreme Billy Dream vs Eric Cobian. This contest is originally from 2008, a few years before I even started this blog, and as you can expect, the quality of this video leaves much to be desired. But better a somewhat low resolution video than none at all, right? Here are some screen caps I made from this match.
The Champion - Billy Dream 
The Challenger - Eric Cobian

Bonus Beefcake: This beefy bodybuilder/wrestler  named John Baine was part of Cobian's posse.

Meet Markus Mytra

Here's another wrestler who was brought to my attention by a blog reader who leaves comments signed "Anonymous" (he also introduced me to independent wrestler Evan Grey). Calling himself "The First Slovakian Pro Wrestler," Markus Mytra is from Slovakia, a small country in Europe with a population of not more than 6 million. Myra and his tag team partner in The Spartan Legion are the reigning tag team champions of Hungarian Championship Wrestling (HCW). There are some articles about Mytra, but they're written in what is either Hungarian or Slovakian, so I don't have any additional information to share with you. But you'll be seeing more of Mytra here on Beefcakes of Wrestling in the weeks to come. Stay tuned!
