Time Travel

Holy shit! Is it AUGUST??? Where the hell has my summer gone? A very belated hello my dear readers. It has been a while! Good lord I've been busy. All summer I kept thinking "I need to post a new entry" and every time I came close, I was reminded I have less than zero minutes free in which to do so. Let it be known to any of you who are contemplating working full-time and taking a summer course in university at the same's a bad idea. It will eat your life :P

So yeah, it's been a very busy period for me. This summer has been hectic but I have managed  to squeeze in some matches here and there in the few breaks I have had. Recently though, I started to receive a flurry of messages about a new match I had up on BG East and thought it was worth a look. Lo and behold, my match with Morgan Cruise was finally out! I do say "finally" because, if you are a devout consumer of my blog posts, you know Morgan and I have known each other for a fairly long time...about 5 years in fact. That match was filmed when we first met so I'll let you do the math about how long ti's been since that one was taped. Spoiler alert: it's been a while.

Lucky for me, despite the beat-down suffered in that match, I did end up meeting a pretty cool friend in Morgan. In fact, when we chatted a few months ago on Skype and I told him I was still single, he told me that it's best that "his Ben" takes the time to find the right guy :) I know I've said it before, but despite his ring-persona, Morgan is actually a real sweetie-pie. I know, I know, "But he's so mean in the ring? How can that be?" Trust me, he's a big puppy.

Speaking of friends, I managed to meet up for a quick workout the other day with another local bad-boy, Fabrice. After we got a good pump on, he revealed to me that he had been making his own flexing and fitness videos on YouTube. I figured I'd give him a shout out here on the blog so that some of you who are more twink-inclined can watch him do his thing. He does have some very nice abs...You can find his channel here for your viewing pleasure.

On that note, I...have to go back to studying. Final exam coming up. Let me know what you think of the new match with Morgan Cruise in the comments below, private messages, wherever works :) Write again soon, I promise!

Hello my dear readers! Hope you're all doing well and that you're not freezing your tail feathers off. It's been a mild winter here in Montreal but the past few days have been a bit more brutally cold. Nevertheless, spring is on the way and things should soon be heating up. It won't be long til all the hot guys in the city are letting their big biceps get some sun...along with some of my drool :P

And speaking of heating up...if you haven't been on over to the BG East website in the past few days, you should head on over and checkout my latest match with another recruit of mine, Harley Hall! He's a big, burly stud and I'm sure you'll enjoy seeing us in action. I know I had a few folks write to me asking me about when I'd be having another match release so hopefully that keeps you happy and wanting to see more :)

Harley had been waiting for a long for our match to come out. I recruited him a while back and he was very nervous about how he would appear on camera. If you can believe it, he was afraid that he would look fat! Now, I don't know about you guys, but I see nothing wrong with a little bit of meat on a man, especially when it puffs a big barrel chest like Harley's!

If you guys have any comments or words of encouragement for him, leave them on this post and I'll send him this way so he can see what you think ;)

Busy Little Beaver!

Hello once again my dear readers! It has been an exceptionally long time since my last post. I've had a crazy few months with my last semester essentially having consumed all of my free time and then some. The next few months will be somewhat more calm so I should be able to write a little bit more thankfully.

So what's been going on with you guys? Let's take a little look south to...OH MY GOD WHAT IS THAT ORANGE THING RUNNING THE US??? Americans, I turn my back for one minute and you go and do that? Wow. Just wow. Wasn't it supposed to be a really qualified lady who was going to run your country and keep the proverbial shit together? Well, let's just say that I am more than happy that we Canadians are shielded (to some extent) from the damage that your disaster-in-chief will inflict on the world. After all, we have our boxer-Prime Minister to protect us :)

As for wrestling, my life has been so busy that I haven't had that many matches lately, on video or in private. Granted, I did end last year and start this one with 2-on-1 matches in Montreal. So I can't complain all that much. I should be able to start squeezing in some matches in my weekends in the next few months because, for the first time in like, 10 years, I actually have somewhat-predictable and stable weekends now! It's weird that I kind of have a stable schedule...

Anyhow, I just wanted to give you all a quick update about where I was and to relieve you of the notion that I have disappeared. I'll post again fairly soon and, as always, try to keep you informed of my goings-on.

Speaking of Biceps...

Oh, hello again readers! Was just posting my last entry and got to thinking about biceps (though that happens on a nearly hourly frequency). I forgot to mention that I've been chatting with a new buddy on the west coast who has his own fitness website called Fitness for Every Life. The guy in question is the handsome muscle-daddy John King who has voluntarily showed off his 19+ inch biceps for me on many, many occasions. Trust me, they are quite impressive! Feel free to check out his website and learn about what he does.He's also got a youtube and instagram account that shows off his incredible physique and even provides some helpful training tips. Give him a look, he's the handsome stud in the picture in this post ;)


Hello again my dear readers (I know a certain reader who will mock me for my usual opening :P)! It's been a busy end to my summer. Between interning and working part time, I had very little free time at all. The summer in the city was great, nice and warm and full of very hot guys strutting around in nearly nothing. But all good things must come to an end as my fall session in university started up again. Now the only hot guys are the ones who go to my university....oh right, that's A LOT of them. I swear, they're all pumped up jocks and I do a double take at least twice a day. But yeah, I really should focus more on my's just...biceps....mmmmmm.....:P

Learning that MuscleLuke can kick ass
Despite all that work and business, the summer was not without a few mini breaks and surprises. As a reward for a long summer of work, my mother surprised me with airfare paid to the Windy City of Chicago (side note, I really do have a stellar mom)! So on board a little propeller-plane I swept into a new city I had never been to before. Naturally, on any first trip to a new place, I do like to do all the touristy stuff.  I must say, Chicago is one of the best kept secret on the continent. You always hear people brag about New York and San Francisco but Chicago is rarely spoken of. It's really a treasure-trove of beautiful architecture and hot guys.

In MuscleLuke's clutches
Of course, I had to get myself a little bit of mat action while in the city. I didn't want to overload my schedule with matches on my first trip, especially with so much to do and see. So I honed in on a very hot and studly guy who goes by MuscleLuke on the wrestling sites. Believe me, he was a wonderful guide and guy to hang out with. Despite being a self-described jobber, he is more than capable of kicking ass, especially with those big quads of his! I learned the hard way that he was more than capable of taking this BG boy and making him his bitch. I will be honest and say he clobbered me twice in two days. He definitely knows his holds and had me tapping out many times. Of course, if you know me well, I clearly was not complaining! His legs really were so big and muscled that he could keep me locked up in scissors all day long and I would not mind at all. Even his camel clutch was pretty damn good and he knew how to crank it. It's a shame we're not closer or I'd have him over for many rematches...even if it means I get squashed by this handsome "jobber" a few more times :-)

Chicago will definitely be worth a trip back in the future. Sadly, with the exchange rate being what it is at the moment, I won't be able to afford to head back in the next little while. But who knows, perhaps I'll have the opportunity in the coming year.In the meantime, feel free to read up on MuscleLuke's take on our match on his blog and see some more pictures.

Match Released!

Hello again my dear readers! As promised, my match with Fabrice, the twinky French terror, is out on the BG East website! Check it out by clicking on the image on the right or follow this link to get to the match page! Enjoy! And as always, let me know what you think :)

Sunday, 17 July 2016


Hello again my dear readers! How are you? I've been extraordinarily busy in the past few months which explains my lack of posting. Working 6 days a week and having only one free day to do the rest of what needs doing (laundry and such menial tasks) leaves me little time to actually sit down at the computer and type out a new blog post. On top of that, after many attempts at repairing my old computer, I finally gave in and bought a new one so I'm finally back up to normal processing capacity (typing entries on a slow laptop is nothing compared to typing on a desktop Cadillac like I now have).

All that aside, I have a new match coming out to the general public but that is currently only available on the Arena! I take on my twinky-terror recruit, the French boy Fabrice! I hinted in a recent post that perhaps I might be taking him on and sure enough I have. It was a hot match to film and hopefully you all enjoy it. Take a look at it on the Arena if you're members and let me know what you think! I'll post the direct link to the match page in my matches column when the match gets officially released.

Other than that, I'm trying to squeeze matches in where I can during this hectic period of time. I've been lucky to have a few visitors come by the city and give me a good bout or two. I'm also looking to potentially travel a bit at the end of the summer if I can have some time and money to do so. Things are lining up ok on that front so far but now's the time to make your pitch if you think that I should make a stop down in your city! Give me a good reason to come down, list the things to see and throw me a challenge for a match if you think you can take me on ;)

And on that brief note my dears, I have to run. It is my one day off after all and I have got to get shit done! And hell, maybe catch a pokemon or two while I'm running around...did I ever mention that I'm a big geek at heart? :P
