These days, I'm getting worked over pretty hard. I'm working my ass off, just managing to stay on my feet. And, wouldn't you know it, just when I find myself backed into the ropes, some nasty heel villain uses those very same ropes to work me over that much harder.
|KV v Ken Mason (assisted by KL) - Tag Team Torture 1|
Metaphorically, this makes my day-to-day life these days suck. On the other hand, literally, when someone uses the ring ropes to take advantage of an already battered hunk, that does not suck (at least not for the heel or for me, watching). Turning the set into an integral prop to tell the story is, in fact, a major turn on for me, further explaining my particular preference for ring action.
|Brigham Bell v Patrick Donovan - Hunkbash 5|
Sliced to hell and mean as a king cobra, Brigham Bell pretty much always used the ropes, and most of the time he took full advantage by not only capturing his hunks in the ropes, but then head scissoring them at the same time. Illustrated so delightfully in his ring action with Patrick Donovan, ultra-lean, muscled bodies put on artistic display is the icing on the cake. The cake itself, of course, is the completely gratuitous humiliation of an already suffering hunk. To capture 6'1" pec-tacular Patrick so defenselessly, so vulnerably, and then to squeeze Patrick's handsome face humiliatingly between Brigham's tightly corded thighs... talk about the climax of a story!
|Brad Rochelle v Patrick Donovan - Wrestlefest 2|
Patrick, Patrick, Patrick... early in his BG East career, Patrick frequently occupied the restraints of the ring ropes. He just suffered so sweetly! It's no wonder that opponent after opponent reveled in beating him down and then tying him up to not only soak up more punishment, to also have his ego crushed as decisively as his hot, long, gorgeous body. On his way to being awarded Rookie of the Year in Wrestlefest 2 (I vote for more Wrestlefests!), Brad Rochelle slapped Patrick into what I think, objectively speaking, is the hottest bit of ring rope torture ever captured on camera. Hunk-on-hunk, stunning body on stunning body, handsome face squaring off against handsome face, and Brad taking a foreshadowing turn to the dark side to lock Patrick's throat between the bottom to ropes and then boston crag his legs, sitting his fine (fine, fine, fine, fine) ass down across Patrick's shoulders to choke him that much more.

|Rio Garza v Donnie Drake v "Trevor" Mathews - Pro Bashed Triple Threat|
I noticed in recent pics from Can-Am's new (upcoming?) release, Pro Bashed Triple Threat, that Rio Garza is on the receiving end of some tasty hunk rope punishment at the hands of Donnie Drake. This is, perhaps, the best representation of my own subjective experience at the moment. Clearly outmuscled and at the mercy of a nasty, big, brick house bastard, like Rio under the control of Donnie Drake, I'm getting pried backward and pounded on with nothing to do but take it and look pretty (I can pull that off, too).
As I whine, just a bit, about my own woes (I can sell suffering when it's my turn), I find some comfort in the sight of some beautiful hunks getting tied up and beat down with the assistance of the ropes. Well, okay, so perhaps "comfort" isn't the word. But it does, somehow, make the nasty heels in my own life a little more tolerable when I spend a little time admiring the aesthetics and erotics of homoerotic wrestling heels taking the picture frame itself and choking the daylights out of the stunning portrait of a musclehunk in the middle.
