Can someone correct me if I’m wrong? I believe that the cute chubby bear on the left is Tim Larson. He was the lead hero in a straight-to-DVD movie called 305 (check out the trailer here). I will post more about Mr. Larson in the near future.
My good friend, Erl, from the Brotherhood Of Bears Yahoo Group has shared this “Distributel” commercial using sumo wrestlers to make a visual point.
There’s something about seeing two semi-nude large men superimposed on an overwhelmingly white background. You can check out more screenshots in the bearmythology Flickr Photostream.
I am not kidding.
And here are a few more awe-inspiring photos of these beautiful Kushti wrestlers…
[EDIT: Oops, neglected to give credit where credit is due. These photos came from this blog.]
Here are some woofy photos of Pakistani wrestlers. I started researching more about “Pehalwan” when I saw the first photo you see below. You definitely can’t blame me for doing so, no? ^_^
These beautiful shots are by Nicola Okin Frioli
Technically, The Great Gama is Indian, but he later moved to Pakistan.
I’m not sure who he is, but the description of the video says that he’s “Singh.”
Got this and the bottom photo here
(And I must add that I just LOVE that photo. It’s just, perfect.)
And here’s an interesting editiorial on wrestling in Pakistan…
The Barbarian (Sione Vailahi) and The Big Bossman (Ray Traylor) are two archetypal bearish wrestling personalities (muscular & beefy musclebear and hefty & chubby bear) who completely personify the very reason why I love to watch pro-wrestling.
And then, sometimes, I think that I love to watch pro-wrestling because of touching moments such as these…
“Hey, Big Bossman, I love your cologne.”
“Barbarian, you have got to tell me what body lotion’s you’ve been using!”
I am a big fan of pro-wrestling. No surprise there, I bet. Specifically, I love old-school pro-wrestling where it involves massive, big, muscular, husky, chubby, bearish men who are practically nude with their wrestling singlets. I have always enjoyed watching these behemoth warriors do what they do best in the squared circle…
Well, SDW Media, was my source for that obsession. That company’s owner has always been very friendly and reliable with my orders. I used to be his customer back when he used to provide these valuable archives on eBay. He was not selling them on DVD at the time, so I would highly recommend you guys in checking out his DVDs. My VHS tapes were in great condition, but you can never go wrong with the DVD format…
(As a note, if you’re thinking of getting VHS instead of DVD, the company’s only selling them in NTSC format and not PAL. DVDs, on the other hand, will play in any region. So go with DVDs!)
By the way, check out my “tags” at the bottom of this post. Specifically the names of such classic bearish pro-wrestlers. I wrote them all down just by staring at the collage I’ve made from SDW Media’s screenshots of their videos. And I did it all through my memory alone. Impressive? Lol. Yeah, I’m smug and proud about my encyclopedic knowledge of massive and husky pro-wrestlers. Still, some of you guys probably know a lot more that I do though. ^_^
