|BG East's Ken Canada and his strategically placed Maple Leaf|
[...interview continued from yesterday...]
Bard: And, needless to say, the image of you sliding around in the middle of the Battle R'Oil is warming a different part of my body. Any other BG East wrestling memories that stick out for you?
Ken: On that first visit in the summer of 1996, on the same weekend as I'd wrestled in the Battle R'Oil, I'd also wrestled Jett Larson and Ian Nesbitt in two separate matches. Jett is a handsome, nicely put together lad and one of the sweetest guys I've ever met. Ian is a real sweetheart too; witty, clever, and...while wrestling in a skimpy speedo...he's raunchy as hell!
Ken: On my second visit to the BG East estate, around 1997, it was while the comet, Hale-bop was slicing its way through the heavens above, a welcomed harbinger of victory in the ring or an ominous omen of disaster for me? Hmmmm. Time would tell. That weekend, I tangled with Kid Vicious in a hot ring match, and then, the next afternoon, with TNT Horrigan down in the BG East basement on the cool, black mats in the Mat Room. Kid Vicious is a veteran wrestler who knows all the right moves, and all the dirty illegal ones, too. TNT Horrigan is another veteran BG East rassler who knows how to get his opponent into a hold which soon has him screaming like a little girl. I'm not saying that that was the case in our mat match, but I can't deny that he had me in agony with a couple of his expertly applied submission holds.

Ken: Both times I went to Pembroke to wrestle, I boldly went where few men have gone before: into the BG East ring or onto the BG East mats up against bigger, stronger, more skilled wrestlers. But I can honestly say that I've absolutely no regrets for having done so. I've always held onto the belief that you just gotta' grab life by the balls and yank life around until it gives! I apply this same philosophy to wrestling. Whenever I'd find myself trapped in a hold of which I could see no immediate escape, I'd always go for the ever-vulnerable bulge. Hell! If it didn't do the trick, at least I'd have had the pleasure of having squeezed the other guy's man-jewels in my horny hand and of seeing that hot, sudden look of utter agony splash over his cocky face. YEAHHHH! Now that's what does it for me! Dirty moves or not, whatever it takes to get the other guy to say, "I give! I give!"... I'm right there!
Bard: You are an inspiration to me, Ken. I hope to embrace life, wrestle it to the mat, and crank on it by the short hairs with as much abandon as you have! Do you stay in touch with any of your brothers-in-wrestling?

Bard: Did you keep wrestling after your stint on camera with BG East?

with Ken in Submission 6
Bard: Damn. That's cold.
Ken: Painful though it was to do, after he'd said this to me, I declined his request to meet up and wrestle with him again. I'll always have those great memories of being scooped up by this 6'3" giant, being body slammed to the mat and then slowly climbing up his gym-sculpted body, and lingering at his invitingly growing basket. Yeah...being a big heel wrestler and male nurse's secret jobber call boy was a wonderful, though short-lived experience...and one which I'll never forget.
Bard: Has being a BG East wrestler affected your personal relationships?
|Inside and outside the ring, sometimes|
we all need to take a good beating.
Bard: Sounds like you’ve found a real keeper there! Congratulations! Even though your partner isn’t into erotic wrestling, there’s something awfully hot about him sitting down and watching Ken Canada’s greatest hits. And it sounds like you've definitely remained immersed in wrestling.
Ken: I'd also wrestled at Hillside Campground in The Endless Mountains, Pennsylvania. I'd only gone there one time, and I believe that it was only the third anniversary of the gay wrestlers' campground having been established. Since then, Hillside has grown incredibly larger, welcoming many more wrestlers than in the year when I had gone. It was amazing! I highly recommend camping there. I guarantee that you'll be "pitching a tent" - if not overhead, well then most certainly in your wrestling trunks/speedo. The campground also offers all campers access to their great in-ground swimming pool. The guys are really, really friendly...and really, really hot, too! Go! Enjoy yourself! While there, I’d met a wonderful bearded lawyer/wrestler named "John" from Washington D.C.. I regret having lost touch with him over these past years.
Bard: You've really lived it, Ken! Again, I say, you are truly an inspiration. What are you up to these days?
Ken: As I mentioned, I'm very happily partnered off now and living in Ontario, Canada. I still maintain regular contact with Kid Leopard, and Scottish bad boy - Ian Nesbitt. I love visiting the BG East website to keep up with the latest news, faces, and tanned, muscular bodies of the wrestlers. I wonder if they know how truly lucky they are to be welcomed through the gates of the BG East wrestling home.
Bard: Any of the BG East boys that have come along after you that you'd like to get your hands on?
|Ken and I have some plans to pick up where|
Blaze left off, with Mr. Joshua captured
in the corner
Bard: I'm pulling out my wallet as we speak! And if you need a hand with all those balls, you have to call me up. I'll take personal responsibility for working on Mr. Joshua. Any other BG East hunks that you'd like to face off against?
Ken: Come to think of it, it'd also be loads of fun playing, "What's inside your trunks?" with The Enforcer, Magnus, Surge, Cage Thunder, and Muscle Mask. Do you see any kind of theme going on here? Masks sorta' turn me on... big time!
Bard: You and me both, brother! Any other Ken Canada updates for your fans?
Ken: Just like the eager, underdog jobber in the BG East ring, I'm a man with great ambition! For the past year or so, I've been working on a novel - an exciting, suspenseful thriller about the discovery of a cancer cure. I'm also trying to finish up my first feature film script - a romantic dramedy about two brothers. I guess you can call it a "bro-mantic" dramedy". There aren't enough brother-bonding films out there. If I were to ask you for one right now, could you name one?
Bard: One that isn’t a homophobic mess? Hmmm… nope!
Ken: I can think of “Fred Claus", starring Vince Vaughn and Paul Giamatti. I'm stuck for another, though. Whether by blood or by choice, brother-bonds are important. I have one brother by blood already, but I've come to realize that life has come to bless me with a small handful of other brothers, with whom I share a deep-set passion for man-to-man wrestling and more!
Bard: Well this conversation certainly gives me a feeling of strong "Ken-ship" with you! I've said it at least twice already, but I have to say it again before we're done here: you are an inspiration! You've been incredibly generous to share your time with me and agree to let me post our interview. I can guarantee that I won't be alone in being both entertained and inspired by your fantastic journeys in homoerotic wrestling!
Ken: Thanks again, Bard. You're a proficient, prolific, and talented writer. I'm honored to have been asked for this interview. BG East has been an important part of my adult life. You can't spell BG East without an "A"...or as I like to say, "an eh!" I love your blog, and I'll remain a loyal reader/follower for as long as you write it.
