I always feel a little intimidated when I hear from Eli Black, which, frankly, is how I assume he likes it. He's equal parts over-the-top ego, stunningly hot physique, and seriously devastating wrestler. He's a force of nature, I think, and resisting him is a little like shaking your fist at a hurricane. So when Eli says that if anyone deserves an a-to-z montage of the wonders of his wrestling range, it's him... well, who am I to argue? I've still got more "Making Jake..." lined up, but in honor of Eli Black reminding us that not only does he read homoerotic wrestling blogs, but he desires, nay, demands the loyalty of his gay fans, I'm more than happy to inaugurate a new series all about the a-b-c's of Eli Black. Here's to evoking Eli's...
Appropriately enough, let's start with the arrogance that Jake Jenkins evokes from Eli. I have to guess these two hardbodied hunks would have quite the bromance if it weren't for the deep seated need that they both have to be the undisputed top dog. Hell, it was Jake who complained last winter when I presented a reader's choice poll for the hottest, most promising rookie in homoerotic wrestling, but forgot to list Eli on the ballot. When they first met at Rock Hard Wrestling, Jake came out on top in the end, but all along the way, he managed to evoke from Eli some of the sweetest, most compelling arrogance I've seen in the ring in a long time.
JJ and Eli stirred up still more of that primal chemistry when the mad geniuses at BG East threw these two polecats into the mat room together for Mat Rookies 1. Sure, it started out nice and friendly-like. But when the singlets came off and the shit got personal, holy hell if beautiful Jake didn't evoke in Eli a raw, fierce barbarity that takes my (and Jake's) breath away!
By no means has it all come up roses for Eli, perhaps suffering his most humiliating defeat at the hands of heel-rising Morgan Cruise in Gut Bash 9. An accomplished MMA fighter like Eli would have no idea to expect he'd be brutally speared by the Mastodon and then brutalized for an eternity as Morgan targeted Eli's "picture perfect abs." You can just read it on Eli's face halfway through his utter destruction. This just wasn't the way it was supposed to be! Morgan did a whole lot of things to Eli in that match, but perhaps most delightfully, he evoked Eli's consternation.
Eli Black is not a man familiar with defeat. Having chatted with the young hunk a couple of times, I'm also convinced that Eli's sincerest wish is to pair his irrepressible desire to dominate with his fiercely loyal and lustful base of gay fans who study his every move and flex in infinite and intimate detail. So when shockingly forced to submit, or as when he met Jake for the first time in the ring at Rock Hard, going down in the best out of three falls, the pathos is thick and moving when Eli clutches his battered abs and covers his eyes as if to prevent himself from seeing his own destruction (and from being seen by the Eli loyalists lining up to watch his amazing ass!). Once again, hand it to Jake Jenkins to draw out something stunning, totally arousing, and perfectly pitched for the wrestling kink audience when Jake so powerfully evoked Eli's despair!
Got your own abc's of Evoking Eli? Send them my way, preferably with a pic to illustrate them, and I'll pass along your keen eye and literary savvy in a future post. In the mean time, for the record, let me just reiterate the obvious. This is Eli Black's world, bitches. We just (fortunately) live in it!
