It's not like I'm subtle. I practically beg for interviews with homoerotic wrestling hunks! I've got favorite classics who I've long harbored a crazy longing to chat up, but I'm nothing short of tickled (in that hot, pinned down and tortured way) to have a sexy, fresh rookie agree to go on the record as well. When I discovered that BG East new hottie, Ben Monaco, reads the pages of this blog, it took me about a quarter of a second to get my interview request out. Big Ben amiably agreed, and he charmingly calls me "Mr. Bard" (which makes me think for just a moment that he's talking to my dad), so I've quickly settled firmly down on the side of being a Ben Monaco fan! Getting a little back story does nothing but make me eager to see more of what this sexy, sweaty slammer has in store for his BG East career!

Ben: Why thank you Mr. Bard, always liked your writing style and enjoy your analysis of the matches and wrestlers you write about.
Bard: Hey, thanks! I'm honored! So I have to start where you left off at the end of your debut match with BG East. That kiss planted on fellow rookie Alex Arias is dizzyingly hot! Alex seems to want to fight it off, but I swear we watch him melt underneath you as you hold the back of his head firmly in your hand and plant your mouth across his. Damn that's a hot finish! What was going through your mind as you celebrated your first match victory so passionately?

Bard: You certainly made a big impression on me! What a way to introduce yourself to BG East fans, not to mention the disarming treat it clearly is for your opponent. What's your wrestling background? Your first match appeared in a product called "Mat Rookies," but already you seem awfully confident on the BG East mats.
Ben: My background is actually very, very limited! Unlike a lot of the roster there, I have no formal training in submission wrestling, pro or otherwise. I actually only began wrestling my very first matches back in August 2011! Of course, before that I was already an avid fan of BG East and gay-wrestling in general. So a lot of what I know to do I owe to the various guys who I've wrestled as well BG East's talented coaches Jonny Firestorm, Kid Vicious and Kid Leopard of course.
Bard: So you were already a homoerotic wrestling fan before you wrestled for BG East?
Ben: Yes, I was a big fan of BG East and still am to this day. Wrestling has always been a big turn on for me so the homoeroticism comes quite naturally when you've got a hot opponent in front of you!
Bard: Where did BG East find you?
Ben: My "day job" makes me travel around a lot between four cities: Toronto, Ottawa, Quebec City and Montreal (my home). I ended up wrestling a guy in Toronto that I met on globalfight on one of my frequent layovers. We had tried on several occasions to meet, but there was always a scheduling thing that went wrong. After a good solid month of back-and-forth "I'm not available that day but are you free on that day?" messages, we finally met at the start of 2012. As we finished our first match he asked me if I knew about BG East. "Of course!" was my answer. He then told me that he personally knew the guys in charge (Vicious and Leopard) and thought that I should meet/talk with them about filming.
At first, I thought he must be joking! How could I, a new kid on the wrestling block, be considered BG East material? I had only been wrestling for 4 months or so! Nevertheless, I agreed to let him send some of our match pictures to the BG East bosses. Within a week I was chatting with Kid Leopard about potentially flying down to Florida to film, by the end of January it was all confirmed and by the second week of February I was down south shooting my first matches.
Bard: Sounds like a fantastic adventure! Being so new to the game, what is it that motivates you to step onto the mats in your underwear, cameras rolling, and work up a bucket of sexy sweat as you put your ass on the line?
|All that sweat requires Ben to squeeze tighter!|
Bard: Count me among the fans of dripping sweat on a wrestler! I also adore the sound of Alex whimpering as you control him in the long, agonizing series of scissors you squeeze him in. There's an almost inaudible gasp and withering whine that you milk right out of him that I find astonishingly sexy. I also remember you telling Alex that you wanted to hear him scream, which you proceeded to make him do. What's it like for you to play an opponent like that?
Ben: Oh well that's just a lot of fun! When I beat a guy down, I love making him beg and plead for me to release the hold or end the match. I can be a pretty nasty little heel when I want. But don't be fooled by my first match, I've gotten my ass handed to me many times in the past by bigger AND smaller opponents. Little guys, I've found out, can pack quite the punch too.
Bard: Before I saw Mat Rookies, I was first attracted to your hot, hairy pecs from your pictures on the BG East website. But after watching your match, I have to say it's a toss up between your powerful legs and that lovely mouth of yours that are at the top of my list. When it comes to your body, what part is your pride and joy?
|Pumped for action!|
Bard: You're clearly a long way down the path to pounding out a powerful, very sexy body! Who else at BG East would you like to pin to the mat with your lips? From the current roster of wrestlers, who would you like to dominate next?
Ben: Hmmmm...that would be a long, long list! Can't I just have them line up and just try each one until I'm satisfied?
Bard: Absolutely! That sounds like golden concept for a BG East series! I certainly understand where you're coming from. But if you had to choose where to start...?
Ben: Well, if I have to pick some guys from the current roster that I would gladly pin down and dominate with my lips...Kieran Dunne, Braden Charron, Darius, Eddie Rey, Patrick Donovan all make the short list among many, many others...next question! I'm getting horny [laughing].
|Kieran Dunne is first on Ben's list to pin with a lip lock.|
|Brad Rochelle can turn Ben into his|
"little wrestling slave"
Bard: Brad Rochelle is the right answer to just about any question, I think! Yummy, indeed! So, back to sexy little Alex Arias. He looked seriously pissed to be dominated by you, but once you locked your lips on him there at the end of taping, he seemed to finally, reluctantly, despite himself concede that he was yours. Were there any hard feelings off camera afterward? Anything else "hard" off camera that you'd be willing to talk about?
Ben: Nah! No hard feelings between us! Alex is a great guy as are all the BG Boys that I met down in Florida. There are no hard feelings after the matches because we know that we're all part of the same little family and we're doing these matches because we LOVE wrestling! As for other...hard things off camera. Well, we'll leave that to the imagination of the viewers.
|After some sweaty pain and suffering, there are no hard feelings.|
Ben: Absolutely! After having fought for them in February I've come to one conclusion: when BG East calls you down for a match, you go. Period. Forget whatever hang-ups you have, you only live once! They are amazing, friendly, kind generous guys who go out of their way to make you feel at ease and welcome among their ranks. On top of that, you get to meet and fight with all kinds of hot guys you only ever dreamed of meeting!
|Soaked in sweat, Ben looks stunning reveling in victory!|
Ben: Stay tuned for some more matches and feel free to let me know what you'd like to see in the future! I'm always happy to hear what fans have to say! Look me up on GF or GnG under the profile Namarian!
