Shirtless Saturday Night: Big Van Vader

Here is Big Van Vader from his WCW days…

Wouldn’t it be awesome if you went home to relax on a Saturday night then find this giant behemoth of a bear lounging shirtless on your sofa?

Ron Simmons: On Doom, Tag Teams, & The Sex Comparison

Here’s a great shoot interview with Mr. Ron Simmons.  In particular, these were my favorite bits:

[1:49]
Ron flexes both of his massive chest underneath that shirt.

[5:39]
About wrestling the Rock ‘n’ Roll Express
Aw, man, love ’em.  Aw, I used to love working with them.  It was the best to work with Ricky and Robert.  For one thing, youse got these good-looking white guys, right?  These two big black guys, right here, that are gonna beat up on these good-looking white guys.  You should see the look on some of the people’s faces around the ring.  And then they love them and watch them cry.  You know what I mean, and, actually get into that, and want to kill you for what you were doing.  It was, it was in a way, it was like, hey, they’re having sex to watch it, okay?  When you’re out there working with them  Love em.  Love every minute.  I would have worked with them every night if I could.

The above video is a match between Ron Simmons and Tommy Angel.  Ron completely dominated the match (which is a wrestling match I don’t tend to get interested in, as I tend to prefer seeing big guys get dominated).  Anyway, the only reason I chose that match is to compare his excited response about the Rock ‘n’ Roll Express from the previous video to this uneven match against a smaller wrestler.

So it comes full circle.  I found Mr. Simmons’ shoot interview — and especially the “sex” comparison — to be inherently erotic and arousing.  -_^

Make sure to also check out SDW Media’s Tag Teams DVDs which include Doom (Butch Reed/Ron Simmons).

Big Van Vader: Big Bear Is The Centerfold

I’m 35 years old, but in closeted gay years, you would have to divide that number by 2.  So, I’m technically 14 and a half years old.  Unlike most of our heterosexual brethren, who had pretty much lived “normal” lives, my adolescent growth had been “stunted,” so to speak.  99.99% of it is my fault as I’m cowardly about coming out of the closet.  In a way, I still am; but as the years punish pass me by, I’ve grown to accept my decision of being a, well, loser.  Lol.  Whatevs.  Talk to the hand.  😉

[EDIT: Lol.  Someone had pointed out my unfortunate math skills.  That would be 17 and a half years old.]

Anyway, with that emo moment out of the way, I just can’t believe that I have not posted about Leon Allen White — otherwise known as Big Van Vader, The Man They Call Vader, Vader, or just Amazingly Hot Bearish Wrestler of All-Time.

I remember always checking out the newsstands and bookstores to see the latest pro-wrestling magazines and hoping against hope that Vader would grace the covers.  Lo and behold, he had and here are two close-up scans of two magazines that I still have in unbelievably pristine condition…  Gee, I wonder why I own these two very specific magazines?

Here are other magazines Mr. Vader had shown up in.  I’m a visual person, and when certain texts are superimposed against such vivid images, I just go nuts — literally.  Check these out…

[BearBeat] Chad Brock: Why This Cowboy Got The Blues

Chad Brock also used to be a professional wrestler back in the WCW days (as Chad Brock, a country-singing pro-wrestler!).  He was mostly a jobber and got dominated a lot.  Unfortunately, he got injured and decided to completely pursue his primary love: singing.  I’m just proud of this man for making his dreams come true.

Here is a Chad Brock ad scanned for me a few years ago by a good friend named Sparky:

And finally, this is why our woofy cowboy gets the blues.  He got beat up a lot.  As in, he never even got to land a blow <giggle> on Mike Enos.  I wish I had the full match, but as you folks know by now, I extract just very specific clips — and in this case, it’s the Chad Brock beatdowns.  It’s a problem, I know.  I’ll be in that anonymous meeting soon.

BearBeat Score:
3 out of 5 Pawnches

Why the average score?  Well, I did not appreciate his opponent, Mike Enos, dropping Mr. Brock’s neck on the top ropes [0:20 mark].  The inconsiderate and pumped up Enos did not even wait for Chad to get his armpits on top of the ropes to minimize the painful impact of his neck on the ropes.  I guess I can’t blame Enos since he felt like the king of the world dominating a guy smaller than he was.  Bravo.  So that’s the reason for the decreased score.  The fantasy aspect of the clip disappears once someone actually gets hurt.  Not nice at all.
