Review: Eagle vs. Frey (Thunder’s Arena)

Full Disclosure: This match was provided to me by Thunder's Arena.

This is a review, but it’s really a preview. A pre-review? Maybe I should have just called this “Thunder’s Big Gamble”.

Normally, I plan this blog pretty far ahead, because I feel the need to stay ahead of the game to remain on a regular schedule. Today was supposed to be an off-day for the blog, following the Quick Hit yesterday and the “Who’s Who” tomorrow leading into a new story on Tuesday.

Well, I had to change my plans. For the first-time ever, the match I'm reviewing has an expiration date.

After disrupting the distribution model all summer, Thunder’s Arena is doing it again. They’re offering a new video for sale for just ONE DAY. That’s right, they're saying that Cyber Monday (11/30) is the only day you can purchase Eagle vs. Frey. It’s pretty risky to do this, especially when the matchup features a wrestler you can see in 100 other videos whenever you want and a rookie who, regardless of how hot he looks, has no track record at all.

Okay, Eagle is hot, but is he any good?

So what did I think?

Quick Hit: Marco vs. Fit (Thunder's Arena)

I like the organizational structure I've been using for the blog if for no other reason than I don't have to come up with witty titles for every post. However, the "Review" title for covering videos does put some pressure on me. Sometimes I watch something and I just don't have a strong opinion about it. I feel like reviews should have a point-of-view and make a recommendation.

The new "Quick Hits" category is my attempt to help with that. It will be for a couple of things, but the common element will be that they're shorter and more weighted to visuals than words. It could be for shorter recaps that are more designed to help you form an opinion and less about me sharing mine. I can cover things that I don't feel strongly about, but think readers will be interested in. It could also feature just a couple of hot moments from a match, rather than an overall assessment of the entire video.

Encounters: Thanksgiving 2015

"So, you're back."

"What was your first clue?" Brody says sarcastically as he stands in my barn, wearing just a white undershirt and a pair of white briefs.

Review: Trent Blayze vs. Darius (BGEast)

Yesterday I posted about my interest in the upcoming BGEast match between Trent Blayze and Mike Pitt. I covered Pitt’s match vs. Bulldog Barzini. Today, I wanted to highlight one of Trent Blayze’s matches.

I’ve bought or rented all four of Trent Blayze’s released matches. I heard that BGEast often films five matches at a time, so this might be his last one from the same group, but I hope not.

Trent Blayze

Now, I’m not the first one to blog about Trent Blayze. Bard named him Homoerotic Wrestler of the Month for November 2012. Joe at the newly re-opened Ringside at Skull Island has multiple posts that feature the 6’1”/195-lbs stud Mr. Blayze. And over at Wrestling Arsenal, there was an image back on his 2/18 "Release the Camels" entry that featured him wrestling in an indie pro match.

Review: Mike Pitt vs. Bulldog Barzini (BGEast)

So BGEast has posted the first preview for Catalog 111 up on the Arena. It’s for Babyface Brawl 3 and one of the matches has me quite excited. Of course it’s not available on VOD yet (the matches I'm most interested in usually aren't the first ones released), so now I wait.

The match is Trent Blayze vs. Mike Pitt.

PSA: Bringing Sexy Back 2.0

Well, they're at it again. Thunder's Arena is once again making matches starring a certain big and sexy wrestler available. It's only DVD, but for some of you that might be great.

Here's the announcement from the Thunder's Arena Tumblr:

Coming Black Friday (Nov 27th) we are releasing all Big Sexy matches from our vault for limited time special event. We will be offering up and selling all our Big Sexy DVDs, sorry no downloads, in out [sic] store for 4 days. This will be your one chance to get your favorite Big Sexy DVDs you have been wanting to add to your collection before they get locked down in the vault.

It's no secret that he is one of my all-time favorites, so I highly recommend picking up anything that interests you.

If you need any inspiration, below is a link to my previous PSA from 7/19 that highlights a range of the matches I have. If you want images and suggestions on things to look for, it might be a good start.

Review: Damien Rush vs. Vasily Volkov (BGEast)

I was really excited to see this Hunkbash 17 match in the latest BGEast catalogue. Damien Rush is a guy that I think is ridiculously hot, but I haven't seen a lot of. This is the second BGE match I've seen with him then I have one wrestling match, plus a few superhero videos from MDW. And Vasily Volkov looks gorgeous in the still images. Of course they held it off VOD for a month, so I waited and waited, finally getting to rent it a couple of weeks ago.

Yeah, I wanted this for the hot studs

Overall, I thought it was a good match. Not a classic, but I got what I thought I was renting. Now the catalogue sells hard, floating the idea of a surprise, but this match goes exactly as I expected it to. That's not a bad thing. I rented it specifically to see the guys and they're great.

Review: #435 Axel vs. Nick Diesel (UCW)

So there must have been a rope sale at Home Depot or something, because here we are again with a match where ropes are involved. This time, it's in UCW with Axel vs. Nick Diesel. Champion Axel puts his belt on the line against challenger Nick Diesel. I know I've said it before, but I really like that they have a belt. It's fun and adds a unique element to their matches.

Challenger Diesel

The champ is confused by the ropes until he sees Diesel, who I guess has used them before. It's my first time watching him in action, but the narrative is clear. The challenger is gunning for the belt and plans to use any and all means to get it.

The Cave 14: The Bat vs. Mimik

"Another villain down at the hands of The Bat! And you got to see it live!"

I rise up, thrusting my arms in the air then I strike a double bicep pose. In spite of being tired, my 205-lbs of muscle on my 6' frame responds, giving all our subscribers who are watching my victory posedown one last thrill before we shut the feed down.

I love the feeling of a hard-fought, best two-out-of-three, sex stakes match, especially when I win. And my fans love the sight of my muscles, pumped from action and covered in a coating of sweat. My exposed cock is finally softening after I claimed the ass of the very sexy villain Dr. Kaos, the unfortunate loser of the match. It wasn't easy and there was a moment in the third round where I thought things wouldn't go my way, but I gutted it out.

It's not that often that I get to do a live streaming match, but when I do, it's always a rush. I look over at my opponent, who's quietly rolling out of the ring. He stumbles to the curtain, simultaneously stretching his back out and rubbing his ass. After the pounding I just gave it with my steel 'bat-pole', that's no surprise.

Review: Pro Rodeo 2 (Can-Am)

Warning ... long-winded set-up coming ...

This is billed as a Cyberfights match. That kind of surprised me. I didn't really realize they were still a thing until I saw the title card of this video.

I was a big Cyberfights fan. Brett Barnes, Tyler Black, Scotty Mac and many more were popular additions to my DVD collection. There was a stretch where I bought everything they put out. I use the past tense because the website went defunct and I haven't really thought about them at all for years.

Images from Cyberfights website

Back in the day, they were the best option for seeing the hottest young pros in great gear wrestling each other. BGEast's New Pro was more authentic in setting, but most of the guys and gear weren't the same level. With Cyberfights, you got the combination of pro-quality action and gear with porn-quality studs and production.

Review: Alex Oliver vs. Sgt Stiff (Wrestler4Hire)

One of the most common comments about comic book villains is, "why don't they use their genius and become rich inventors?" It's a good point. All these low-grade crooks who build things in their garage like matter transmuting rays or suits of armor could have a lot more legitimate money than they get from robbing a bank. I mean, sheesh.

I now feel the same way about Cameron Matthews. Why is he producing wrestling videos at Cameron Wrestler when he clearly has a time machine in his possession?

It's the only explanation I can find for how he got Sgt. Stiff here from the 1980's to give a master class in being an 80's heel. Body. Gear. Character. Voice. Attitude. Moves. It's all so on point. I literally felt like I was watching a guy who stepped forward 30 years to show us modern day folks how it's supposed to be done.

A good heel plays with his food

Alex Oliver is a literal doormat

Review: Dirty Daddy vs. Marco (Thunder’s Arena)

I mentioned that I had purchased a few Thunder’s Arena ring matches (all starring Dirty Daddy) but hadn’t been that excited to watch them. Well, I finally have watched one. On the advice of a commenter, I started with Dirty Daddy vs. Marco (see why it’s good to comment?).

Two top studs in a ring? Count me in!
I’ve blogged about both these guys before, covering four Dirty Daddy/Guido Genatto matches in three posts (vs. Superman, Jake Jenkins, Flash LaCash and Chet Chastain) and two Marco matches in one post (vs. Dominic and Wolf). I gave a positive review to all of them, except Marco/Wolf, so I felt these two could deliver a good match.

And they do.

Encounters: Denim Duel

"Oh fu-!" I blurt out sharply.

I stop myself, before finishing, but my outburst has attracted the attention of the handsome white frat boy in the seat next to me. Out of the corner of my eye, I notice he's eying my screen as I fumble for the home button on my iPad. Finally, the screen leaves the frozen image of The Cave's Bane dominating The Bat shining big and bright on the retina display.

Damn, damn, damn.

Fuck I feel stupid!
