Top dog

I won BG East’s year end award for the “Best Squash of 2014”, I think this is the 3rd year in a row I’ve been involved in the best squash job. My poor opponent was newbie, Nicholas Rush. As soon as the Boss set him in my cross hairs, I was drooling to sink my teeth into him. Just look at the two of us, it was a mismatch from the start.


I don’t recall poor Nicky getting a single offensive maneuver in. I was in a muscle building phase during this match, so I’m a little beefier, but more muscular than I typically am. Despite our appearances, we were the same weight. Nicholas did have a 9 inch height advantage over me though, not that it mattered.


The match has a terrific write up on the BGE website, click here to visit the webpage. Demolition 17 is a fantastic DVD overall. It also features 2014’s top babyface winner, Jake Jenkins. Poor Jake is matched up against the beefy bruiser, Guido Genatto. That match in particular won the “Best ring match and the best submission, of 2014”. Demo 17 has a little something for everybody AND it’s on sale until March 1st! Just to reiterate, best heel, best babyface, best squash, best ring match, and best submission all on one DVD, at a discounted price. It’s a no brainer.


Here’s a fun behind the scenes fact, the visible scratch on my head during this match is a result of an impromptu wrestling match against Jake Jenkins. I forget who else was around but Jake and I both have extensive amateur wrestling experience, Austin Cooper was egging us on a bit and we threw down. It was pretty intense but I was able to get the better of Jake. We all went out into Boston that night and Austin wouldn’t stop teasing Jake about it.

I’m finally back on track as far as dieting and working out go. I’m not sick of eating healthy yet, no cravings and I haven’t had a cheat day…yet. Working out has been a bit discouraging. I know it can take a while to get back to where I was before but it’s very humbling. I’m struggling to put up half the weight I used to and I feel like I’ve been hit by a truck. I think with another week under my belt the level of soreness will go down significantly, my body just needs to adjust to lifting weights again. If I keep at it, I’ll have my abs back by April.

I’d also like to give Cameron Matthews a congrats on finally winning best ass. I’m glad your ass is finally getting the recognition it deserves.

Fan Fantasy 2, NYC

First, let me have my fan moment. What an amazing Super Bowl! I was one play away from throwing the nearest object through my TV. I know people are saying the Patriots got lucky, and they did. But Seattle was just as lucky getting the ball all the way down there on that bobble catch. So the two plays kind of cancel out. For all you upset Seattle fans, I have this to say…


BG East just put out a new catalog and I’m starring in one of the products. Fan Fantasy 2 pits me against BGE icon, Christopher Bruce.


This match was very early in my BGE career, not quite a heel, not quite a jobber, just an eager young wrestler looking to make his mark. I was super pumped when Kid Leopard called and said I was going to be wrestling Chris Bruce next. He was one of my idols, somebody I never imagined I’d get to step in the ring with. He was always entertaining to me, always very well built and skilled. He went from being a young fantasyman beefcake in his early releases to a beefy muscle hunk as a veteran grappler. It’s hard to keep your appearance up throughout the years (I’ve found that out the hard way, lol), and I admired that Chris Bruce was consistently a stud every time he stepped in the ring… or on the mat. He takes a lot of flack for always coming up on the losing end of things, but he’s good in the ring. There’s a lot of power behind his attacks. He just happened to be up against other high quality opponents.


Let’s be honest, I suspect that in many of his matches he was set up to fail. When you look the way he does, the Boss will often match you up against the biggest, baddest, dirtiest wrestlers around. With his physique and handsome face, why wouldn’t you want to see him get bashed. That’s what pretty boys are for. Looking back on this match now, I wonder what KL’s motives were. Was he seeing if Chris Bruce could put me in my place, or was he grooming me to become the heel I am today?


I vividly remember this match being around the time my BGE career started to take a turning point. I wen’t from the skinny newcomer and soon after this bulked up to be a muscle pro. Chris Bruce taught me some lessons in the ring during this match that I still use to this day.


On a side note, I’m going to be in NYC again next Friday (2/20). As of right now it’s just a day trip, but I wouldn’t mind extending it into Saturday if need be. Email if you’d like to schedule a private match.
