BIGBeast: The New Guy 7

"Aw, I thought you were staying, Steve?"

Steve looks out from his rental car, "I am. Until tomorrow then I'm going to check out Boston. I just needed to grab something.”

Steve's not leaving is he?

PSA: 2019 Besties Voting Is Open (BGEast)

It's awards season at BGEast. I'm sure that many of you vote for the Besties, the annual recognition of fan favorites at BGEast. Last year, I shared my Besties nominations (not votes) with you in a very popular post. I couldn't do that this year, as I wasn't invited to participate. It's just as well. I haven't seen a ton of these nominees.

What earned my vote in 2018?

Review: Brad Barnes vs. Johnny Jobber (Wrestler4Hire)

I'll be honest. Brad Barnes vs. Johnny Jobber was nowhere near my radar, but a reader actually emailed me to ask me to review it. I was flattered that he cared so much about my opinion, but it wasn't streaming, so I begged off. Fortunately, Wrestler4Hire had their recent huge 40% off sale. At that price, I figured 'what the heck?' and bought the download.

Like most story-centric squash videos, I needed to wait to be in the right mood when I watched this. I did wait and I was in the right mood. And so, I really enjoyed it.

Depending on your perspective, Brad is either the
best client a bank can have or the worst. I vote best.

Review: Cason vs. Loki (Thunders Arena)

By now, you've probably bought Loki's debut matches from Thunders Arena or you aren't going to. I know that I'm late to the party with this hunk, but I love him too much not to post about him. He's one of my fantasy guys that I wished would wrestle and now that he is, I'm pretty excited.

I immediately bought two of them during the sales, but only really got to watch them recently. It was tough knowing that Cason vs. Loki was sitting on my hard drive, but I made it through the holidays and this was a wonderful way to start the new year.

Sweet! A bromance is born.

Review: Brendan Byers vs. Caleb "Scrappy" McNair (Muscleboy Wrestling)

Full disclosure: This video was provided to me by Muscleboy Wrestling.

Scrappy: What's up, big guy? Ready to get your ass whupped? Or you could just get on your knees and worship this muscle. It'd be a lot easier for you.

2019 is off to a great start for me, at least in terms of wrestling videos. Wrestler4Hire and Thunders Arena produced winners last year that I only watched this year. And Muscleboy Wrestling released their eleventh catalogue in December. It's a star-studded collection, but one of the biggest surprises was a certain match bringing together two studs from different sides of the gay wrestling video world. Brendan Byers vs. Scrappy McNair immediately interested me, so I had to watch it first, ahead of all the other hot videos.

It's a surprising and satisfying matchup
when these two get together.

Review: Frey vs. Professor Muscles (Thunders Arena)

I watched Frey vs. Professor Muscles last year? It seems like ages ago. I was going to review it at the time, but after viewing, I just couldn't get interested enough to do it. However, after an off-hand remark in another review, an anonymous commenter (or maybe two) requested that I explain why I felt how I felt. And so, as a bit of fan service, I decided to write about it. It still took me a while to think of an angle, but I finally hit on something.

I bought this because I was really interested in the new muscleman because of his name and look, plus Frey is usually great with rookies. Unfortunately, things didn't work for me.

I bought it for the promise of Professor Muscles.

Review: Batman vs. Bane (Hero Hunks)

After basically taking a month off from posting about new videos, I have a lot of catch up on. I figured I'd start here, because I don't think others bloggers have touched on it, yet. W.R. covered a different video on his Screencaps blog, but I haven't seen this one mentioned. The rest of January, I'll be repeating what others have reviewed, but let's start fresh.

By now, you probably know that Wrestler4Hire has launched a couple of spinoff sites. One of those is focused on superheroes. They've always had superhero content, so I'm not sure why the need for Hero Hunks, but perhaps it's just an organizational tool to keep things focused. Not that it matters. Fact is, you can't put out superhero content without me being curious. And when one of your first videos is Batman vs. Bane, you can pretty much just take my money.

Okay, men, let's get it on.
