I just saw the opening clip of Can-Am's newest pre-release with Aryx battling muscle god Rusty Stevens in Arena 2. As in Arena 1, Rusty pretty much destroys Aryx in the opening salvo of playground taunts. Rusty has a sharp wit, and when he displays for Aryx what it will look like when Rusty has him beaten to a pulp and getting fucked from behind, it's pure poetry. Rusty swings his hips and mimes slapping Aryx ass like a rodeo rider. It's hilarious, humiliating, and, frankly, hot.
There's a bizarre cut in the middle of the taunting. Clearly the boys were getting some coaching about where to go with their trash talk. As the camera's zoom in on each fighter, Rusty brings up BG East by name. Aryx, who's simply not nearly as quick on his feet, awkwardly works in a slam on BG East. "I'm standing on the ruins of BG East!" he boasts. Rusty finally gets tired of trash talking circles around Aryx, and he growls and pumps his stunning body like a charging bull.
One of the most recent appearances Aryx made in BG East featured him humiliated at the hands of massive muscle boy Eddy Rey and the BG East boss himself, Kid Leopard. It makes a nice story to tell of Aryx getting run out of town by BG East and then showing up at Can-Am as if he'd wiped his hands of his former masters. Between you and me, Aryx isn't one of my favorite fighters to follow. Rusty, on the other hand, is rising stock in my personal homoerotic wrestling pornboy competition in my mind. I'd pony up my credit card to own Rusty snapping and snarling at champion Mitch Colby, but frankly I'd prefer a BG East-style production here to a Can-Am piece.
I don't know if the trash talk in Arena 2 is a serious attempt by Can-Am to take a dig at BG East. Like I said yesterday, I think they offer two distinctly different types of products, and Can-Am poaching Aryx does not blur the lines of the differing styles of the two companies. When I'm looking for some domination porn with a wrestling appetizer, I'll probably keep turning to Can-Am. When I'm looking for some homoerotic wrestling kink with a porn chaser, I like BG East. At this point, I'm just keeping my fingers crossed for a Rusty/Mitch throw down in Boston...
