Yesterday's post sparked some interesting conversation. It also got me to thinking about all the jobbers that have caught my eye as I've fed my wrestling kink. Despite my proposition yesterday that every jobber should have his day, it did occur to me that there are, perhaps, a very select few jobbers that I never tire of seeing crushed. It may irk some of you to hear me now say that even I have a pantheon of jobber gods who, perhaps, I might never get bored with. If reconsideration of my argument yesterday irritates you, please refer to my standing opinion on consistency.
Wrestling Arsenal describes Kenny Kendall as "everyone's favorite jobber." Somehow I feel less special now. I always came to attention when Kenny climbed into the ring. He possessed a sweet (sweet, sweet, sweet) body, and every time there was the introductory close-up, I was captured by Kenny's handsome face. I can't remember ever seeing a match that Kenny won. He wasn't always squashed, but as far as I remember, he was always beaten nearly unconscious.
Kenny's trunks were always a distraction to me. He inevitably wore them a size too small and riding up his ass crack. As if his meaty glutes weren't eye-catching enough, Kenny inevitably ended up on his hands and knees with his ass lifted high off the mat.
As far as I can remember, I never got tired of seeing Kenny get the shit kicked out of him. He suffered sweetly, and frankly I always thought he could probably do a job for days. Sadly, he was often in the ring with significantly out of shape heels who, I have to imagine, get the blame for so manny Kenny jobs being tragically short. As long as Kenny wore those crevice-cradling trunks with the double "K" stitched like grandma's sampler on his left cheek, then sure... I'm okay with seeing Kenny endlessly job.
Wracking my twisted brain, I can't say that there are many more jobber gods who could make it into my pantheon of endless jobberhood. Perhap the BG East's Muscle Mask might qualify, if he had a longer career to consider. As JoshH commented yesterday, there's something simply mouth-watering about the image of a stunningly muscled man like Muscle Mask being manhandled. The mask may be blurring my objectivity here, though. I'm a sucker for a hardbody in a wrestling mask, any day of the week.
So Kenny Kendall is definitely drinking ambrosia on Mt. Jobber-Olympus. Muscle Mask has yet to fight some more Titans before he can definitely join Kenny in the pantheon of eternal jobber delights. I'll continue to consider who else might be worthy of jobber-deity status (feel free to help me out).
