Beating the Odds

There are varying opinions about mismatched opponents in homoerotic wrestling.  I get the argument that the intoxicating heat of the competitive premise can suffer when there is, or appears to be, little chance of an outmatched wrestler holding his own, much less taking possession of his opponent's.  Not infrequently, however, I have a sweet tooth for an apparent mismatch, for the tale of the tape that suggests there is no spread big enough to make this worth a bookie's time.  Just that first glimpse of some plucky hunk staring down (more often up) extremely long odds can grab my attention with both hands.

Brian Baker stares down his nose at goldenboy Austin Cooper 
The long-odds wrestling match jumped front and center in my attention recently when I clicked through to the preview of my reigning homoerotic wrestler of the month, 5'9", 170 pound Austin Cooper, trying not to have to strain his neck to look up at the stunningly handsome face of his young rookie opponent, Brian Baker (different one), who towers over him at 6'4" at weighing in at an athletically lean 205 pounds.  I'm downloading this promise at this very moment, inspired largely by the promise of seeing what Coop can do with the rook's seriously lovely ass and long, tattooed torso.  The online match description telegraphs (or, rather, painstakingly details) that not only does Coop tame the towering stud, but he humiliates Brian in a two-fall squash despite the 7 inches of height and 35 pounds of weight advantage the rookie comes in with.  Please tell me Coop draws out the schooling just as long as his lovely pupil's body is!

Drake Wild has his hands full taming massive muscle beast Tyler St. James
In the way the universe does sometimes, I was fresh off of getting all breathless over Coop and Brian Baker when I stumbled across more tantalizing preview pics of Can-Am's first catch-weight version of a Pro Sex Fight.  Men.com reports that the sweet, hot punk Drake Wild is 5'5" and 140 pounds, which explains why he looks absolutely dwarfed by Tyler St. James, who Men.com reports is 6'2" and 240 pounds of insanely thick muscle.  That's 7 inches and, I kid you not, a reported 100 pound difference, which is instantly translated into a sweaty brow and gasps of lust to see controlling the big man handily.   Fuck, that's hot!

Gorgeous giant Paladin makes even notorious heel Jonny's eyes grow wide.
Apparently there's something in the water these days, because BG East's latest catalog also boasts one of those inspiring apparent mismatches with the 5'5" and 160 pound version of Jonny Firestorm, staring up at the chart topping beauty of 6'6" and 210 pound Paladin in the 3 Stages of Jonny.  The online match description explains that Jonny's been sent on a mission to cut the 6 and half foot giant down to size, but even Jonny and those magical forearms can't prevent the man 50 pounds and over a foot taller from taking the first fall.  It's never a good idea to count out Jonny, or his forearms, prematurely, and yet again another "little guy" beats the odds, and his massive opponent, to a pulp.

Every ounce of Cybertron's 65 pound weight advantage threatens to break babyface Ronny Pearl in half
And then there's the case of 5'8", 185 pound Ronny Pearl, who I mentioned so adoringly yesterday, encountering 6'2" and 250 pound wrecking ball Cybertron in Ringwars 21.  Compared to the previous 3 mismatches, Ronny's "only" staring down a half a foot height difference (and, yeah, a 65 pound weight disadvantage).  Nevertheless, Cybertron demonstrates what "odds" are all about, capitalizing on every inch and ounce of superiority to crush the flowing-haired rookie with more brutality than I've seen in a match in a long time!

Big Sexy isn't about to let even two opponent's kick his fine, fine, FINE ass!
And if we're counting numbers and assessing odds, Thunders Arena has posted a couple of new matches recently the devolve into 2-on-1 double-teams.  In Rough and Ready 33, peroxide punk Izzy was due to star in one of those totally outmatched features, though how much smaller he is than 6', 205 pound Big Sexy is a mystery because he's not listed yet in their roster (which seems ominous for his future).  Regardless, 5'8", 156 pound Python apparently steps in to help little Izzy out, wrapping those superman arms around Big Sexy's throat and turning the tide.  However, this is Big Sexy we're talking about.  Worse for the double-team, it's Big Sexy bigger, sweatier, and more beautiful than ever, demonstrating that it'll take a lot more than 2-on-1 for the likes of these boys to ever best the likes of Big Sexy.

Butt-to-butt-to-butt, Tak and Coop work over Braden Charron's luscious muscles.
On the flip side, you've got twink of my dreams, Tak, getting more than he bargained for when he tries to work his twink-dominator magic on the bulging muscles of body beautiful Braden Charron in Rough and Ready 34.  Braden is reportedly only 5'8" and 155 pounds (really!? with that ass and those pecs, that astonishes me), whereas Tak is 5"10 and about the same weight, but even at the outset this looks like a mismatch for lean fratboy Tak.  When things go decidedly not his way, fellow goldenboy Frey (aka, homoerotic wrestler of the month Austin Cooper) steps in to go butt-to-butt with his buddy Tak in delivering a lick-lippingly sexy double-team dose of humiliation on the bubble-butted beauty Braden.  Braden stared down the odds stacked against him (and on top of him, and all around him) and learned the hard way that they're "odds" for  a reason.

Coop's got the towering rookie right where he wants him.
Mismatches, long odds, David and Goliath... sometimes the little guys surprise us.  Sometimes they don't, and yet still delight us.  However the contrast, the conventional wisdom turned on its head, is very frequently a provocative element in homoerotic wrestling that sorts me out just right.

  1. Just once, or more, I'd like to see Tak prove that good things and victories come in small packages.

  2. Surprised you didn't take the opportunity to gush about Bitch Colby, since he never wrestles anyone his size or bigger.

    For some reason this won't let me post as me.
