News ID 1767 - 2018-01-21: The Crusher vs Victor Jovica - Sunday January 21st 2018   [ Back to top ]

I should stop posting YouTube links because they disappear faster than I can post them, but this one seems to have survived the ravages of time. After all, if it was not removed since 2011, then it will probably last a few more decades.

I am wondering how I come I never posted this one before. It's a rare gem and one of the longer bearhugs I've seen in professional wrestling... probably the longest that the World Wrestling Council (WWC) has ever produced (just kidding). In this clip, The Crusher starts bearhugging Victor Jovica. Jovica fights out of it several times, but The Crusher keeps hugging him back again and again. Eventually, Victor Jovica counter attacks with a bearhug of his own. The quality is poor, but you can still see the bearhug nicely enough.

It's archived under Link ID 221 and you can still put your vote on it for some bearhug balls... or points.

That being said, you can also check the GIF animation that was created out of it under Upload ID 40026 for even greater bearhug balls.

News ID 1766 - 2018-01-20: Different bearhugs - Saturday January 20th 2018   [ Back to top ]

Landon (id 718) kindly shared with us a couple of bearhugs that are not your usual ones.

Take for example this Russian gym where a big powerlifter goes against a little wrestler. One could wish that the little wrestler takes on his opponent with his shirt off, but I suppose you can't have everything.

Landon also submitted this interesting vlog where this blogger by the name of McKenzie trades bearhug with his pal. My guess is that any way is a good way to drum up a couple of viewers and subscribers alike. Not that I'm complaining. These guys are just having fun really.

The links mentioned above have a predefined bonus if you vote on them (Link ID 3634 and Link ID 3637). While you're at it, you should also check out their associated bearhug uploads.

News ID 1765 - 2018-01-10: Please get the permission from the owner/artist/illustrator before posting an illustration or CGI artwork on the site. About illustrations and CGI artwork - Wednesday January 10th 2018   [ Back to top ]

Lately, I've been receiving a handful of removal requests from artists who claimed that they've never given anyone the permission to post their artwork on this site.

If you are about to post a bearhug illustration or CGI artwork coming from sites like Furaffinity or DeviantArt , but even Twitter and Tumblr, please make sure you've obtained the permission of those artists (unless of course, you're the artist, owner or commissioner).

Photographs "sort of" take a second to take, but artists spend hours, if not days, to make an illustration perfect, which is why I can understand why these artists are conveying to me their frustration when their masterpieces are posted elsewhere uncredited or copied and used without their consent or knowledge.

Most artwork will come with a signature or at least the initials of the owner. Out of respect for them, please don't edit or crop that out either. In fact, try not to alter their image in any way. The only exception is when you are attempting to convert it to a valid image format.

In any case, we can already see the impact of people cropping out watermarks. For example, I've been seeing recently quite a few companies and individuals taking an aggressive stance by putting their watermark on the whole image rather than on a corner or on the side of a border. They put it in such a way that makes cropping impossible. As a result, the watermark itself completely destroys the image. I mean how awful is it to have a nice bearhug with big letters on it that says "Property of XYZ"? If everyone respected other people's work by keeping re-posted images intact, we wouldn't have to deal with this sort of crap, really.

News ID 1764 - 2018-01-08: Some requests from the List of Requests have been processed. Some requests processed - Monday January 8th 2018   [ Back to top ]

I took a quick look at the List of Requests for Video Clips today and processed two of them that had a minimum count of 3. Those two requests have been processed and they will now show up in the Clips Section provided that you have the minimum trust rating for it. I also cleaned up a few requests that could not be fulfilled because the video did not exist or the end-user would not provide the video.

Again, team up with your mates to bring up the minimum count of the clips you want to see. I'm ready to take on new ones. Anything with a count less than 3 is ignored, so make sure you make your request count by choosing a request that already has a vote of 1 or 2.

News ID 1763 - 2018-01-06: There has been quite a few story submissions during 2017. New stories - Saturday January 6th 2018   [ Back to top ]

I thought I did an update about this not long ago, but apparently I haven't mentioned anything about stories since December 2016 (!). Well... silly me.

Anyway, there's been quite a handful of new stories since then. If bearhug fiction or wrestling fiction is your thing, then make sure you check out the Bearhug stories.

Also, please note that I no longer require that bearhugs appear in the story. A story submission just about wrestling will do. There's still the minimum requirement that all participants in the story, whether fictional or non-fictional, be of legal age. (Yes, that boy you include in the story should be 18 or 21 depending on your locale). And if possible, use common sense if topics other than wrestling are involved. Meaning, don't try to mention anything that is sensitive to a race, a group or for example, make fun of people with disabilities, etc. In truth, I barely filter or read completely the stories, due to the lack of time. Most often, I rely on the readers to tell me if a story is appropriate or not for the site.

You'll notice that most of the stories I get nowadays are adult-oriented. So yes, you'll have to log in to view them. Or, if you understand how my website works, you can try to be naughty and actually bypass the login process simply by decoding the pattern I use to store the stories on the site. I actually shouldn't say this, but in any case, it's more to prevent Google from indexing those pages.

News ID 1762 - 2017-12-26: Maybe I should post pics of my other favorite holds... FNBS #1: Full nelson body scissors - Tuesday December 26th 2017   [ Back to top ]

In another life, this page could have been called "The Full Nelson Body Scissors Submission Page" . It would probably have a web address like or or something tediously long of the sort... So maybe it's a good idea I stayed with the bearhug.

Most people are stronger in their legs than in their arms, so they are more likely to give better body scissors than bearhugs.

Anyway, since I like this hold so much, I was thinking of posting pics of it once in a blue moon. Here's Vinny applying one on Blayne. This one is from Ringwars 47 from Thunder's Arena.

Maybe one day I should open a separate section for other specific holds, but truth be told, I'm already spending a lot of time maintaining the Bearhug Uploads, so I'll take it easy instead. One little baby step at a time.

News ID 1761 - 2017-12-24: Happy holidays :) Happy Holidays 2017... towards 2018! :) - Sunday December 24th 2017   [ Back to top ]

I just want to wish every one a happy holiday season. I probably will be away with my family for a little while, so you won't hear for me for a bit, but... I did leave behind two video clips with relatively small points amount.

You can unlock them if you have at least a trust rating of 7 and 14 respectively.

Enjoy! Just in case I don't see you guys before next week, I'd like to wish you guys Happy New Year 2018 as well. Let the new year be full of bearhugs... or racks or scissors or just insert here your favorite hold. I suppose I should just say "a happy new year full of wrestling altogether".

News ID 1760 - 2017-12-10: Super Destroyer destroys Cliff Thomas with four consecutive bearhugs. Super Destroyer... or Super Bearhugger? - Sunday December 10th 2017   [ Back to top ]

Boy (id Boy) submitted this video last month where The Super Destroyer destroys Cliff Thomas in four consecutive bearhugs. Given his affinity for bearhugs, shouldn't he be called The Super Bearhugger instead?

If you haven't voted yet on this video under Link ID 3609, now's your chance to get +1,000 bearhug points.

News ID 1759 - 2017-12-05: A few new-ish companies :) New companies: 88Wrestling - Tuesday December 5th 2017   [ Back to top ]

This new company seems to have appeared not too long ago. I was only aware of it when someone submitted a bearhug from their products. From its initial design, it looks like a clone of Rock Hard Wrestling, or perhaps they used the same selling brand/framework.

It's a bit too early to tell how well these guys will fare, but like many other startups, they can use your feedback as to what products they should develop over the coming months. It is not uncommon that these guys pick up on bearhug requests or any particular fantasy their fans ask for.

There is also these following two companies which I have not mentioned here before, but they could be of potential interest to us:

You can check out these links and more of their competitors by consulting the Links Section.

A friend sent me this and I couldn't resist posting it.

This genuine bearhug comes from James Lechelt's instagram. Incidentally, I also added his bearhugs in the Uploads section and his pic in the Contenders section, so make sure you give him a little nod.. just for sharing with us his teddy bear bearhug.

If you check out his Instagram, you can watch the video version of the bearhug.

Today's bearhug features Saul Adams bearhugging Damien Dunne from Wrestle Midlands.

The beard is a bit too long for me, but I still wouldn't mind a bearhug from this big lug.

Most of you have already voted on this, but if you haven't, there is currently a +4,000 bonus points on it.

News ID 1756 - 2017-11-16: Just a little rant on selectivity and technology. Selectivity and technology - Thursday November 16th 2017   [ Back to top ]

I was reading this article the other day that a friend sent to me. It's a BBC article about the creator of Gaydar who recently passed away. His website helped the gay community find each other, pulling them out of isolation, especially in countries where being gay is still not widely accepted.

It has its consequence as well. For example, the article mentions that it made the gay community too selective and that sites like Grindr and Gaydar may be the leading cause of the closure of gay bars.

The notion of selectivity evidently applies as well for sites like this one, or MeetFighters or Globalfight. During the times where classified ads in your vintage gay magazine was the only way to reach out to someone, you'd be happy to see a single wrestler in the whole directory of ads of gay men. Snail mail was the communication of choice and you'd wait for weeks to get a response and several months to plan a wrestling meet. Driving several hours to meet this one other wrestler who seemed to be the only other guy that wrestles in the planet was not uncommon. The choice back then being much smaller, one couldn't afford to be selective. The web changed all that. For most, it made it easier, but for some, it isolated them even more.

Every week, I find fake users who post pictures of the perfect bodybuilders that are from somebody else, not theirs. I close their profiles and I sometimes think of their backstory. Maybe that person experienced the disgust of being rejected countless amount of times and maybe that person wants the attention they could have had if they had the perfect body. Maybe seeing people drool over them gives them the satisfaction or the happiness they need to go on.

While you can't make things perfect for everybody, you can try to improve it for most people. Making the web a better place for gay men to wrestle other gay men became my new objective after I realized that I wasn't the only who shared this wrestling passion. The road to my objective was obviously rocky, but the end result definitely was well worth the effort even if it came with a few drawbacks. Knowing that I made a difference by reading the feedback I got from several users on how it reshaped or changed their lives is definitely a hint that I probably erred in the right direction.

Most sites have switched to the mobile format and I never really followed the trend or took the bandwagon. Will my site suffer because of it? Probably. Will I cry over it? Probably not. There isn't a month that goes by where I see technology evolving around me and the thing I work on becoming obsolete. No matter the changes and the transformation in the industry, I'm happy with my work and I'll keep on growing on it as long as the web continues to allow me to post content like this in the format of a web browser.

News ID 1755 - 2017-11-03: Which bearhug is better?  Superstar and Barbarian against Starship Coyote?  Or Ivan vs Ivan? Rediscovering gems - Friday November 3rd 2017   [ Back to top ]

I was cleaning up the links section by removing or assessing the broken sites and videos. However, most of the broken YouTube links can just be replaced by new ones. Chances are that if a video was taken down, then it was probably re-uploaded by someone else. This was the case for these two nice bearhugs I had the pleasure to re-discover:

Starship Coyote, or a young Scott Hall (Razor Ramon), gets to be in Superstar Billy Graham's bearhug. After a long and intimate hold, he tags out and asks The Barbarian to continue wearing out his opponent by bearhugging him some more. This is a nightmare for the young Coyote, but it is a fantasy come true for many of us.

You will need to fast forward to the 4:30 mark to see the exchange with The Barbarian.

In this next one, we get big heavyweights and powerstuds, mainly the Ivans: Putski and Koloff are determined to show who packs the better punch... or the better bearhug.

Putski was always one of my favorite as a kid. Who can say no to his awesome build and his charisma on the ring?

You can find the links to these videos archived under Link ID 3554 and Link ID 3569. If you haven't placed a vote yet, you can get +1,000 bearhug points from each of them.

It's amateur time! It's about time for them to get some more limelight. I'll post a couple of my favorites:

Bilyal Makhov and Luis Felipe Vivenes are locked up in this test of strength.

Cenk Ildem clearly has Elis Guri in control. You gotta love hugging those Bulgarian wrestlers!

Last, but not least, these guys below still need identification. Although I have to admit, identifying them is probably next to impossible. The victim him doesn't seem to struggle that much...

You can vote on these bearhugs for a +1,500 bonus points each.

News ID 1751 - 2017-09-13: Big John Studd vs Tony Atlas - Wednesday September 13th 2017   [ Back to top ]

What happens when two big wrestlers who both use the bearhug as a finisher are pitted against each other? Simple: They lock horn, duke it out in a test of strength to determine who's bearhug is the absolute strongest.

I actually thought that Big John Studd would dominate here, but apparently, Tony Atlas' bearhug is pretty devastating judging from Big John's reaction.

You'd think that Big John Studd's imposing size and height over Tony Atlas would actually do something, but apparently, size isn't everything. Or... Tony Atlas likes bearhugs so much that he can defend against it regardless of his opponents. The proof of it is that Big John Studd would struggle, express great pain and do everything in his power to escape Atlas' grip. On the other hand, Tony Atlas is simply telling Big John Studd to squeeze him as long as he wants.... even to the point of wiggling his torso and butt to taunt his opponent.

If you'd like some bonus points, you can vote on Link ID 3586 by giving your evaluation of this match up.

News ID 1749 - 2017-08-27: Birdman provided us with a new chapter in his wrestling adventures! Birdman vs Wrestluchador - Sunday August 27th 2017   [ Back to top ]

Birdman (id 1269) took the time today to write a match between him and Wrestluchador (id 10050).

The language that Birdman originally employed in his scenario is Spanish, but I went in his text and tried to give to the best of my knowledge an English equivalent. You will be given the option at the beginning of the match to select Spanish or English. The English I gave is not perfect because I got the translation from Google. We all now that the translation algorithm doesn't really understand the exact meaning of some words, sentences and expressions. It also has trouble picking up the context of a given situation (especially wrestling). Hence, I've altered the returned text from Google to make it a bit more legible, but it's still not a perfect 100% translation from Spanish. Feel free to correct my changes by providing me with alternative descriptions to some or all of the sections of his match.

Anyway, the result is in Match ID 333 which you can read now. Please do provide Birdman with a nice thumbs up and a few comments to encourage him to provide us a third chapter. He's one of the few match contributors that is still willing to take the time to write a story and share his pictures. Thank you!

News ID 1748 - 2017-08-18: I spoke about Barbaric Brawn all the way back in 2014, but this guy deserves a spotlight of his own. Barbaric Brawn - Friday August 18th 2017   [ Back to top ]

I spoke about Barbaric Brawn all the way back in 2014, but that blogger and artist really deserves a spotlight on his own.

The webmaster is Chris and he is very dedicated to his work. He maintained and uploaded computer-generated imagery on his blog since 2011. The topics he focuses on is very varied: it goes from cops to muscle worship, from father vs son to superheroes, from spanking to bondage and much much more. There's really something for everyone in his blog. Most of his collection comes with a complete storyline that connects the dots between his images and you'll see that this fellow has an imagination way beyond mine.

We've spoke a bit in the past and he's a very nice guy. We both found out that we were influenced by a wrestling video game called "Saturday Night Slam Masters" in our younger years. It was however our preference in characters that were slightly different: he would go for Biff and Gunloc, while I would pit Jumbo and Scorpion at each other.

Here's one of his masterpieces where Hercules and Ares are battling it out on the sacred grounds of mount Olympia!

Check the Uploads section for more of his bearhugs. Note that you are probably better off seeing them directly on his site because I have to require a log in on most of his images. It's the only way for me to perform age verification since his artwork is intended for mature audiences.
