2016-07-09: 1,000 points per match pic hold identification - Saturday July 9th 2016   [ Back to top ]

Since not many people were that interested in identifying the categories for images posted in the Match section, I am now giving out +1,000 points per image identified.

The best way to do this is to look for holds for each match. Simply visit any match or view them by highest amount of uncategorized images. Then, use the [ Quick View ] link at the bottom of the match. From here, you can click on any of the images to start identifying them away. Note that even if a hold has been identified, you can change it again in case it was incorrectly identified.

If you want even more filtering, there's a link at the bottom of the Quick View page that will allow you to show only uncategorized images.

Categorization allows for better searching of matches later on. The search system currently allows you to find matches that contain a particular hold, but this search is useless if none of the images are identified.

2016-06-27: Hey! Looks like the site reached its 18 years of existence!  Woohoo! 18 years!!! ... already! - Monday June 27th 2016   [ Back to top ]

Hey! Looks like the site reached its 18 years of existence! Woohoo!

So.. um.. aside from releasing another clip at a low point count, there's not much else I can do. If you have a trust rating of at least 7 and a minimum of 18,000 points, then please check out the clips section for your little surprise. I hope you guys will enjoy it.

Yeah, I haven't worked on any new big features since a long while... so there's no grandiose opening or anything along those lines today. It'll be for another time (or year).

Meanwhile, please accept my heartfelt thanks for helping the site go through yet another year! May bearhugger.net continue to exist for a lot more decades!

2016-06-22: You know it`s very old school when the video is in black and white! Old school... very old school! - Wednesday June 22nd 2016   [ Back to top ]

You know it's very old school when the video is in black and white ... and when this happened all the way back in 1952... when I wasn't born yet.

In the following video, Ivan Rasputin bearhugs Rudy Kay down to the mats and gets a 3-count this way. The bearhug lasts from near 18:05 and all the way until 18:57 with multiple escapes, but Ivan just keeps on re-clamping the bearhug. Talk about perseverance!


This video is courtesy of the Chicago Film Archives presenting "Wrestling from Chicago". You can vote on it in Link ID 3458 for +3,000 bearhug points.

2016-06-19: A handful of new uploads have been submitted recently. New uploads... and some stats - Sunday June 19th 2016   [ Back to top ]

A handful of new uploads have been submitted recently.

Then I went to check the stats page by company today just for fun. It now shows that 1 out of every approximately ~4 bearhugs comes from BG. This figure used to be 1 out of 3. Mind you, 1 out of 4 is still huge.

Thunder's Arena is in a far second place with about 1 out of every 7 pictures being a bearhug from this company.

When ranked by type of bearhugs, the lifted frontal bearhugs are still being the most popular bearhugs with 30% of all bearhugs on the site. This is followed by regular frontal bearhugs (those with the opponent's feet still on the ground) at 23% and reverse bearhugs at 13%. Lifted reverse bearhugs are far behind at 6%.

The bearhug counter is currently registering more than 27,000 bearhugs...

So why does the identification numbers show a value around 34,000 when there are only 27,000 bearhugs? Well.. it's pretty simple: it means that about 7,000 bearhugs have been eradicated because they were either duplicates, non-bearhugs or requests from individuals for removals (for privacy or copyright concerns).

2016-06-14: Bigsqueezer submitted a 3rd chapter to his Suicide Challenge/Homocide Squeeze series of stories. Homocide Squeeze: Chapter 3 - Tuesday June 14th 2016   [ Back to top ]

Bigsqueezer submitted a 3rd chapter to his Suicide Challenge/Homocide Squeeze series of stories. You can check it out by clicking here.

You will have to log in. Basically, anything containing blood, gore or sex will require an age verification to avoid trouble giving easy access to those who are not yet of age.

That being said, I don't always have time to go through all stories that are submitted. If you see one that should be marked as for adults, please do let me know.

Thanks!

2016-06-13: Dave Mastiff really knows how to give his bearhugs POTM #120: Another one signed Dave Mastiff - Monday June 13th 2016   [ Back to top ]

Dave Mastiff really knows how to give his bearhugs. He has this big facial expression that shows how much strength he applies. He holsters his opponent high up in the air and squeezes him literally until he submits. When you're a monster like Mastiff, a bearhug is quite convincing.


You can vote on this Upload ID 16382 for a bonus of +2,000 bonus points.

2016-05-28: Looks like the guys got busy writing and opening up their creativity lately.  We got three new matches. 3 new matches - Saturday May 28th 2016   [ Back to top ]

Looks like the guys got busy writing and opening up their creativity lately. We have three new matches:

  • Darius vs Frank the Tank: The Rematch: Fall 2 (Chapter 5)

  • Squeezerian v The Wriggler - The deciding round (Chapter 3)

  • Brownbomber vs Lusowrestler: The Brown Bomber returns to Portugal (Chapter 2)

  • Remember that anyone can submit a match. If you like a bit of time in the spotlights like these guys, just take a couple of wrestling pics, come up with a story and post it online using the site's match section interface. If you are concerned about privacy, wrestling masks or photoshop face blurring/black outs are totally acceptable. A good example of black outs is the match between Weholooker vs SinglerWrestler89. An example of masks being used is the match between Squeezerian vs Gentleman John.

    The story doesn't need to be elaborate. It can be very simplistic or it can just be a plain description of the moves being applied. If you've seen some of my matches, they are just downright campy and exaggerated, but I'm really just having fun and I try not to take anything in those matches seriously. Truth be told, people are just going to look at the pics and they often skip whatever you write...

    +1 million points is awarded to anyone that submits a match with at least 10 pictures.

    2016-05-24: This is real vintage stuff, but by vintage, we often hear submission. ;) The Beast vs Eric Pomeroy - Tuesday May 24th 2016   [ Back to top ]

    This is real vintage stuff, but by vintage, we often hear submission. The other great thing about it is that they last much longer. The crowd gets all excited about it and they don't shout "Boring!" (Believe me, that's all you hear when I did the mistake of going to a real WWE live presentation at the Forum a few years ago... You hear that and a lot of "Wooo!" each time Ric Flair goes on stage...)

    In the following video, The Beast manages to bearhug Eric Pomeroy twice and actually makes him submit on his second try. (Bearhugs at 1:51 and 4:19)


    You can vote on this under Link ID 3359 and get a bonus of +3,000 bearhug points.

    2016-05-15: Primal Chaos added a couple of bearhugs with Big Max. Primal Chaos' bearhugs - Sunday May 15th 2016   [ Back to top ]

    Primal Chaos (id 1000) added a couple of bearhugs that were taken with a bodybuilder known as Big Max (from Big Max Muscle). As with most wrestling products, a ring name is given and Primal Chaos goes under the undercover name of "Grant".


    This one above is recorded under Upload ID 33687. You can take a look at the other bearhugs in this set by checking out the Max vs Grant bearhug set, and please be generous with your ratings. It's not everyday we get great photos like these. Good ratings means that Primal Chaos might share more of these with us in the future.

    2016-05-10: Adrain64 is sharing with us two clips that are pretty rare. Adrain's clips - Tuesday May 10th 2016   [ Back to top ]

    Adrain64 (id 3641) is sharing with us two clips that are pretty rare.

    One is from the now defunct xxlmusculars.com site that shows a bearhug between Nameth and Farris (See Clip ID 282). The second is a bearhug between him and Brad Holibaugh (See Clip ID 283).

    If you like his videos, make sure you send him a nice thank you note for sharing them with us.

    2016-05-09: I think it`s been a while since I`ve put an illustration as a pic of the moment. POTM #119: Illustration - Monday May 9th 2016   [ Back to top ]

    I think it's been a while since I've put an illustration as a pic of the moment.

    I know... Most of you prefer the real thing anyway... but I feel this one is pretty nicely drawn.


    It's currently rated as #31 Best Bearhug Illustration and hopefully you guys won't shoot the rating down. For some reason, when I bring some much deserved spotlight on an image, the rating usually goes down the drain. It's almost as if you guys seldom agree with my picks.

    You'll get a +2,000 bearhug points if you vote on this one. You'll find it under Upload ID 29630.

    Please try to be generous...

    2016-04-28: Wrestling holds in each match can now be identified. Wrestling hold identification for matches - Thursday April 28th 2016   [ Back to top ]

    I've noticed that most people who create scenarios in the Wrestling Match section often leave the category of the wrestling hold empty.

    I admit that it's a pain in the ass to fill it up for each picture, so I've decided to make that field editable by anyone who visits the match. That way, all of you can help out these authors identify the wrestling holds if they haven't already done so before hand.

    To identify a hold, visit a match, click on a wrestling picture and click on "Identify". Note that if a picture is already identified, you can still scroll down to the bottom of the image to change and update it if the selected category is incorrect. If you can't find the hold in the list, choose "Other". You will then later be asked what exactly is the wrestling hold and I'll later add it to the list.

    The easiest way to determine if a picture has been categorized or not is to use the [ Quick View ]. It's a little link that appears at the bottom of the page of each page of a match.

    All of this is done on a voluntary basis for now. If you want to help out, good for you. I'll remember your actions.

    2016-04-26: A while ago, someone asked me about the right way of applying a boston crab. A question for fans of the boston crab - Tuesday April 26th 2016   [ Back to top ]

    A while ago, someone asked me about the right way of applying a boston crab. Many of you are probably better suited than me to answer this properly. Heck, I myself am definitely not the best to give advice on bearhugs, yet alone on boston crabs. I'm more of an expert on receiving bearhugs, ha ha ha...

    Here is his e-mail:
    Hi, I'm from British Columbia in Canada. I just LUV ur site. All of the BEARHUG pics make it look so cool, macho, and a little funky... lol hahaha

    Sorry to take up ur time, but i wanted to ask an expert like yourself a question about the Boston Crab.

    My buddy and I sometimes play wrestle and he likes putting me in a Boston Crab. I'm 5'11" and he's 6'1" so he's bigger than me and we find it easier when he puts me in it. When he bends me back he always tries to be sure he's sitting right down on my bum with his. (bum-to-bum)

    He says that that's the proper way to do it. Sometimes it gets kinda painful for my lower back so he eases up a bit and keeps about six inches of space between our bums but it doesn't have the same submission affect I think.

    Just wanted to know if this is right and I have also noticed other wrestlers on ur site and on TV doing the boston crab with the bum-on-bum style at the end...??
    If you have an answer for this fellow wrestler, please feel free to add a comment by clicking here. If you are logged in, I will later give you +25,000 points for your troubles.

    Thanks in advance for your time and advice.

    2016-04-03: Double bearhugs are usually very rare in pro wrestling... but Grizzly House Jones is a master of it :) POTM #118: 2 for the price of 1 - Sunday April 3rd 2016   [ Back to top ]

    Double bearhugs are usually very rare in pro wrestling, but Grizzly House Jones is the master of it!

    Instead of 2 people bearhugging 1 wrestler, well... he does the exact opposite! He bearhugs 2 wrestlers.... and he makes them both submit!


    If you think the picture is impressive, make sure you take a look at the video.


    Voting on either the Link ID 2915 or the Upload ID 30157 will grant you +2,000 bearhug points.

    2016-04-02: Adrain64`s bearhug stories are now available as e-books. The Tenant - Saturday April 2nd 2016   [ Back to top ]

    Speaking of books, I forgot to mention that one of the story writers from the database section published his books on Amazon.

    Having offered his publication for free since 2014, I suggest encouraging Adrain64 by getting his e-book on Amazon if you liked his works.

    Here's the link:

    2016-03-31: I finished reading not too long ago a book called ``Memoirs of a Motel Wrestler`` Memoirs of a Motel Wrestler - Thursday March 31st 2016   [ Back to top ]

    I finished reading not too long ago a book called "Memoirs of a Motel Wrestler" by A.C. Yates. I got it as an e-book for my tablet and it reads pretty fast. (Especially in the subway...)

    There's the intro that will give you the basics and the etiquette. It is followed by several chapters descripting his experiences with various wrestlers, notably the ones that have marked the author's life. His last match is a bit of a surprise to me. There are for those where wrestling is like a drug... where you only want to wrestle more and more. However, sometimes, you fall into this one match, it could be a very good one or a very bad one, but this match becomes an eye opener... Actually, I shouldn't give you any additional spoiler...

    Most of you will feel right at home reading this manuscript and will smirk at the experiences that you too also shared in our underground gay wrestling world. It's actually a good read for both beginners and experts. Beginners will discover what could possibly await them and experts will correlate to the stories that are being told to them.

    And if you are curious to learn more of his wrestling experiences, he did produce a couple more books about them. Simply search for his name: A.C. Yates. The prices for his e-books range from 0.99$ to 2.99$, so they're pretty cheap and affordable.

    I bought his 2nd book, but I haven't finished it yet. Kudos to Yates for making me read a book, because the last book I read before his book was the last chapter of Harry Potter... lol. Yeah, most of the time, I hate reading, but I have to admit his book reads fast and easily, then again, it's about the kind of wrestling we all do, so if you piqued my interest, you'll get me going.

    2016-03-06: TheChanges23 submitted two dozen links to videos with bearhugs. New YouTube links - Sunday March 6th 2016   [ Back to top ]

    TheChanges23 (id 3876) has decided to go on a YouTube surfing spree and came back with two dozen links that all contain bearhugs.

    The majority of them are from old school and various indy wrestling associations. You can check out his latest submissions by visiting the Links Section.

    To this day, this user alone submitted a total of 457 links! Now that's really going beyond the call of duty. His sense of duty to share and spread hundreds of bearhug videos to each and everyone of us.
