Bears In Games: “Legends Of Wrestlemania”

Burly Legends Of Wrestlemania
I grew up with these bearish behemoths — in more ways than one…

Koobert from Bears In Games has a threesome of great videos about bearish men in sports-themed video games (check out Bears In Games’ YouTube Page).  The one I’d like to highlight today is Legends Of Wrestlemania.

It’s pretty cool that even when Koobert designed a very obvious gay-looking character, his online opponents would not harass him nor negatively criticize the flamboyant look of his wrestler.  I found that interesting as pro-wrestling fans tend to get an image of being extremely homophobic.  Unfortunately, we find our homophobic brethren in video games like Halo.  I actually watched my co-worker’s 14-year-old son spew insults like “Fucking fag that is so fucking gay you’re gonna get it fucked up in your fucking fag gay ass” in Halo 3.  Ah, to be 14…

Pro-wrestling, especially WWF in the ’80s and ’90s, was my source of a “different type” of entertainment.  It was a world where half-naked burly men role-played a character, as they sweated and wrestled away.  I had a personal attraction towards wrestlers who were cocky, arrogant, and just plain villainous (check out my Sonny Roselli post).  If you looked at the wrestling roster on the above image, I only have about three “good guys” (or “faces”).  But then again, they were also at one point villains prior to WWF.  I guess I just love “bad bears” (I was so angry when I rented The Bad News Bears in Betamax).  Anyway, I feel that today’s pro-wrestling does not have the same mystique that these bearish wrestlers provided back in the day.  There was a rawness and realness to the theatrics that they used to entertain us.  It’s probably still out there since I viewed pro-wrestling a bit differently as a child, teenager, and heck, as an adult in my early 20’s.

Anyway, if you like these bearish pro-wrestlers, SDW Media is the source for all classic pro-wrestling videos (you can read more on my write-up about that company here).

Finally, let me end with an Arn Anderson entrance video from Legends Of Wrestlemania as well as a high-res image of Big John Studd.  Yes, if you look at the collage again, they are my top two professional wrestlers of all-time.

Thank Grizzly It’s Friday Weekly Wrap-Up

Every Friday, I will provide a weekly wrap-up then post a screenshot from a movie and I would like for you guys and gals to guess who the actor is and what movie it is from…  Just post your answers in the comments section.  The answers will be posted the following Friday.

thankgrizzlyitsfriday-2009-02-13Who is this bearish warrior?

Shirtless Saturday got a barrage of sweaty & oily beefy men from OilWrestlers.com.

Goonday Moonday got a visit from the Sell This House host and musclebear extraordinaire, Roger Hazard.

On Two Woofy Tuesday (Beary Yummy Seconds), John Goodman not only made an appearance, but also became our visual aid for the Lost Art Of Copping A Bear.

Strongman Jay Hughes showed us why his nickname is “Hollywood.”

The ghost of Flannery O’Connor was supposed to possess some blogger from East Tennessee, but she got lost and inadvertently possessed a gay man.  The result: “A Good Bear Is Hard To Find.”

As for the answers from last week’s TGIF:WWU…

That big, big, big grizzly bear is John Minton, popularly known as pro-wrestler, Big John Studd (check out my Bearotic write-up), from the film, Harley Davidson And The Marlboro Man.

What’s great about pro-wrestlers is that they typically would make great actors as they’re practically playing a live theatrical role every time they’re out wrestling for the public.  I always get annoyed at people who criticize and insult people who watch pro-wrestling and proudly pronounce it as “FAKE!”  Here’s a news flash, movies and television are also fake, but for some reason, they watch them.  Hypocrite much?

With that random rant out of the way, here is Big John Studd in all of his woofy glory…

Bearotic.com: “Your Daily Dose Of Fuzz”

Greetings bears, cubs, otters and all manner of furry beasts!

Bearotic.com is not your average bear blog.  It is updated daily and safe for work.  We cover all kinds of bearish content about all kinds of bears.  This site is created by bears, for bears, in an effort to broadcast the best bear content available.

As you can tell from the continually changing faces of the community in our header logo, we aim to represent all of the bear community. We’d love to get your opinion and input on our content. What do you like? What do you want more of?

–NetBear & BignFuzzy

Bearotic.com has been one of my favorite bear-related blogs to date (and Chubarama.net for my daily chubby fix!).  The authors of those sites share the same philosophy as I do when it comes to providing bear/chub content.  The only difference is that these guys are pros with what they do.  I’m just a queer fellow who simply likes to babble on about bearish celebrities, athletes, and other husky media personalities.

Anyway, as far as important news for me, I have been part of a “Crossover Blog”!  You know, it’s like the latest issue of “The New Mutants” comic book having a “Secret Wars II” crossover story about The Beyonder and the zombified mutants and…

Lol.  Yeah, I’m geeking out.  I’m just excited to have been given the opportunity to be a small part of Bearotic.com.  When I was invited to contribute, I knew exactly who I wanted to talk about.  It was about a big bear of a man that truly defined the term, “Bearotic”:

Bruiser Mastino: What Happened To Pro-Wrestlers Like These?

This is pro-wrestler, Mike Hallick, as Bruiser Mastino back in the late ’90s.  He was also known as the short-lived Mantaur back in the ‘ol WWF…  The thing is, there seems to be a shortage of actually big bearish guys in pro-wrestling today.  Where are the Vaders?  The Arn Andersons?  The Big John Studds?

Must all big pro-wrestlers wear singlets like this?
