First up, let's just get the elephant in the room on the table (which is a very fun mixed metaphor). Eli Black is not only a 2-time homoerotic wrestler of the month (and therefore an instant contender to be the first to 3-peat), but he starred in a mind-boggling 4 matches released in July! In addition to his 3 scorching hot mat scraps in his BG East Wrestler Spotlight, he also appeared in the summer beef fest known as the latest tag team match for Rock Hard Wrestling. He very well may be in a UCW release as well, but I just haven't worked them into my regular diet yet (check with Joe, who is at this moment featured on the front page of UCW!). Austin Cooper gets a nomination for both his Babyface Brawl with a completely new, granite carved Cameron Mathews (obviously also nominated!), but also for his part of the aforementioned Rock Hard Wrestling Tag Team bash with fellow nominee and former title holder, Jake Jenkins, and long, lovely, sexy Alexi Ivanov. Rookies grabbing hold of my attention with both hands and stroking what I like are two of Eli's spotlight opponents, Victor Paz (who looks to me like a more handsome version of A-Rod), and bubble-butted Lorenzo Lowe (who looks to me almost exactly like my first boyfriend, I kid you not). Gil Barrios and former homoerotic wrestler of the month, Christian Taylor get nominations for the 15th incarnation of Wrestle Shack, as do friend of this blog and former title holder Lon Dumont and his opponent Mike Pitt for the inaugural Pec Bash 1. Now we'll veer into newer territory with a nomination for Steel Muscle God and his nameless muscle hunk opponent (he'd have a better chance at winning the title if I knew his name!) who provided a fucking fierce self-produced mat muscle tussle last month! And finally, I'm including Morgan Cruise in my first nomination from the NKOTB at Muscle Domination Wrestling for his manhandling of rookie Mateus Shogun.
So much homoerotic wrestling entertainment for what might be mistaken for the lazy days of slow-business summer! So many favorites for so many reasons, and some genuine, two handed hot wrestling action in these new releases! This is never easy, but it's also another reminder about the whole point of the homoerotic wrestler of the month title: highlighting month in and month out the stand-out work of the gorgeous athletes who tell me the stories that I love the most. So clear the podium. I'm not bothering with a silver or a bronze. The new reigning gold medal homoerotic wrestler of the month is...
|Cameron Mathews: 5'10", 165 pounds, entirely new body, same babyface!|
|Cam's on top and in charge against goldenboy Coop|
|Sweating, sneering, cheating, 3 days past due for a razor: Cam's the man!|
"He's a cold, hard legend in his own right now, with a chiseled physique and a defiant steeliness in his approach to Austin."
|Cam's power and rage dominate a stunned Coop|
"Matthews has definitely undergone a splendid whole-body transplant that impresses, though it's hard to convey menace with a little boy's voice.... At least the era of matches involving Cameron Matthews seeming like child abuse has ended."
|Babyface Cam is all grown up and making both Coop and the rules his bitch.|
|Cam sets out to emasculate Coop both figuratively and, possibly, literally!|
|Cam's legendary command of every inch of the ring leaves Coop at his mercy|
