2016-12-30: 4 new video clips :) 4 clips for the New Year :) - Friday December 30th 2016 (News ID: 1725)   [ Back to top ]

I know I'm a little bit early to talk about the New Year, but since I won't be available for the coming days, I might as well throw this in now.

I added two video clips with low points requirement. They can be unlocked with a trust rating of 4 and 8 or greater and they demand respectively 20,170 or 2,000 points to unlock. Check out the Clips Section and the Unlock Hints for more information. You will need to be logged in to see the clips, otherwise, they will be hidden and invisible.

The third video clip is free for all. I ran through some of Paul Isadora's bearhug. Yes, this massive, tall and beastly monster who can probably crush any poor (or lucky) victim that gets stuck in his arms. Anyway, I've noticed that the Reno Wrestling Factory took one of his matches down. With this wrestling association having very little visibility and probably a high chance of disappearing like most small organizations, I doubt that most of us will ever be able to view the video again. Luckily, I happened to have kept a copy of the bearhug.

It is now accessible under Clip ID 302.

The last video clip is based on the Request List. If you previously made a request and don't see your request anymore, chances are that it might have become available. If your request is still there, then try to team up instead with one of your peers to boost the video chances for that bearhug.



As a side note, you can also check the Uploads section for a good batch of new bearhugs pics that I've added today.

2016-06-27: Hey! Looks like the site reached its 18 years of existence!  Woohoo! 18 years!!! ... already! - Monday June 27th 2016 (News ID: 1709)   [ 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!

2016-05-10: Adrain64 is sharing with us two clips that are pretty rare. Adrain's clips - Tuesday May 10th 2016 (News ID: 1700)   [ 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.

2015-11-13: Request #2 has been carried out. Vin Marco and Zeb Atlas - Friday November 13th 2015 (News ID: 1678)   [ Back to top ]

I was checking the top 2 requests from the Request List: The top request is the bearhug between SamLovesBearhugs and Francis. The 2nd request with the most votes after that is the bearhug between Vin Marco and Zeb Atlas.

I've already asked SamLovesBearhugs (id 1238) if a video is available, but he'll need some time to process the request and to ask for proper permissions... So, keep in mind that the availability of this video is uncertain and it's never too late to change your request to something else.

Meanwhile, the 2nd request has been carried out under Clip ID 273. Be warned, the bearhug looks great in pictures, but I'm sure most of you will be disappointed by the video. It's a bearhug that lasts 5 seconds. These guys were simply flexing their muscle to the crowd. They weren't wrestling.

Would you like to request something different? Click on a random bearhug of your choice or of your liking and click on [ Request this bearhug to be made available as a video clip ]. Or just check the Request List and team up with your peers. Requests with a high request count will have an easier time to find the light of day. Also, if you previously voted for the Zeb and Marco bearhug, your request has now been cleared, so you're free to pick something new.

2015-01-01: Happy New Year 2015!  I hope this year brings you guys lots of wrestling! Happy New Year 2015! - Thursday January 1st 2015 (News ID: 1629)   [ Back to top ]

Happy New Year 2015! I hope this year brings you guys lots of wrestling, and most importantly, plenty of bone-crushing bearhugs... plus some health to be able to sustain them! Ha ha ha...

Sure, I could wish you guys some joy, happiness, health, sex.. uh, I mean, success and all the usual stuff, but I'm sure everybody already wished you all of that and more. Who else wishes you a year full of wrestling anyway, unless they really know you have a passion for it?

Anyway, I don't have much to offer today aside from a couple of clips that are dirt cheap in terms of points required, meaning they either require 215, 2015 or 20150 points. Just check out the listing of new clips. If you have a trust rating of 4 or higher, you'll see one of them. The other two require a trust rating of 24 or higher.

Please do keep these videos just for you...

Enjoy!

2013-05-18: You can check the clip section for a little trailer of the Teen Hercule bearhug. The missing bearhugs - Saturday May 18th 2013 (News ID: 1538)   [ Back to top ]

You can check the clip section for a little trailer of the Teen Hercule bearhug.

The original trailer did not show any bearhugs, maybe because of content restriction, so hopefully, this will give you guys a better idea of the content they have to offer.

For more information, you can check out their sites:
http://teenhercule.blogspot.com
http://www.youtube.com/user/TEENHERCULE1

Yeah, I like to keep talking about small and individual businesses and ventures to try and give them a helping hand. Big names like BG and Thunder's already have their names advertised on its own everywhere, but these small guys here need all the support they can get.

2013-01-19: 2 video gems have been added Studd, Putski & Graham - Saturday January 19th 2013 (News ID: 1509)   [ Back to top ]

If you haven't noticed yet, two WWF clips were uploaded -- I believe those no longer appear on YouTube, hence the archival being done here.

One of these old gems feature Big John Studd bearhugging Jim Atkinson and then The Black Knight to submission. The other features Ivan Putski and Superstar Billy Graham bearhugging the lights out of Rocky Stone and Joe Mirto in an almost sandwich 2 vs 2 bearhugs. Both also end up in a submission at the same time. This is probably the shortest tag team match ever.

I'm sure that both these two videos are worth while a quick look.

You'll be happy to know also that both clips do not require any points.

2012-12-22: This CAL clip from W99 features Mike Pope giving a bearhug to an unidentified wrestler.  Legacy of CAL - Saturday December 22nd 2012 (News ID: 1500)   [ Back to top ]

I'll be with my friends and family probably until the new year, so I've decided I might as well upload a little clip while I'm away.

This CAL clip from W99 features Mike Pope giving a bearhug to an unidentified wrestler. It starts off with a reverse bearhug, switches to a frontal bearhug and ends with a bodyscissors. Fans of scissors, rejoice!

Curious? Have a peek at Clip ID 232. If you are able to identify the victim in this video, let me know and you'll get a neat +50,000 bearhug points.

Video streaming on bearhugger.net hasn't been too fast or efficient lately due to traffic, bandwidth limitations and network congestion so if the video plays too slow, consider downloading it instead. There's a big blue button that is plastered with the word "Download". Hopefully, you won't miss it.

I'm thinking of posting additional clips from this company because their content is become rarer. Their legacy should be preserved and passed along to as many people as possible. The CAL wrestling studio was probably among one of the first few companies to introduce adult wrestling of this extent to the internet market. Heck, they probably sold their products way before the internet existed... you know, through the old magazine shopping and send your order by snail mail traditional way. So yes, feel free to share and upload this clip elsewhere. Oh.. and a link back to the site would be appreciated.

To all the bearhug and wrestling community, have a happy holiday season!


Note: Voting on the clip will net you +5,000 points (provided that you previously unlocked bearhug points).

2012-08-28: I added a small clip of a reverse bearhug between MJ and Diego from the former Fight Garage company. A Fight Garage Souvenir - Tuesday August 28th 2012 (News ID: 1474)   [ Back to top ]

I added a small clip of a reverse bearhug between MJ and Diego from the former Fight Garage company.

My understanding is that the company was originally UIW Submission, then it became Fight Garage, then it became CU Grappling, and then the company disappeared. All previous websites are no longer accessible. If anyone has any whereabouts of this wrestling firm, feel free to share it with us.

I'd have to admit that they rarely ever featured any bearhugs in their products, and if they had any, they were really short ones.

By the way, voting on this clip will get you a +10,000 bearhug points bonus.

2012-05-27: For something slightly different, let`s take a look at an Indian bearhug Something different: An Indian Bearhug - Sunday May 27th 2012 (News ID: 1449)   [ Back to top ]

Samrat (id 5526) submitted an Indian bearhug coming from a daily soap opera show called "Veer Shijavi".

The grunts emanating from the victim are a bit weird... but it is a somewhat nice bearhug nonetheless. You can view the clip by clicking here. The actual original clip itself was interrupted 5 times by a lady walking, so I took the liberty to remove those portions out.

Heads up: you might want to tone down the volume of your speakers a bit. After all, there's grunting.

2012-02-15: 5 new clips have been recently added How about some new clips? - Wednesday February 15th 2012 (News ID: 1422)   [ Back to top ]

It's been a very long while since I last added a batch of new clips. In fact, my last update goes all the way back to July 2011. I guess I figured out that people usually go to YouTube when they want to see something... except that often, the video just ends up disappearing for no reason.... unfortunately.

There are a total of 5 new clips that were recently added.

Only 1 is accessible publicly without any requirements... That's the one with Nese vs Davis. The 4 others require a trust rating of 22, 25, 27 and 29. In case you are wondering, the clips won't even show up if you are below those values.

Enjoy!

2011-07-02: A little CAL bearhug video clips has been added. A little CAL clip - Saturday July 2nd 2011 (News ID: 1359)   [ Back to top ]

For the occasion of the 13th anniversary of bearhugger.net, I posted a little CAL video with a bearhug combination: it starts with a bearhug and body scissors combo, it is then followed by a lifted frontal bearhug and ends with a reverse bearhug.

You can view it as Clip ID 196. The bearhugger and the victim needs to be identified. Yes, there's a hefty reward in bearhug points if you manage to identify them.

I know this video clip isn't much, but it's a start. I'll try to post more during this month of July.

In addition, for those who have a good trust rating (10 or more), you can take a look at the video listing of locked clips you weren't able to unlock that is 500,000 points or less and have me unlock it for you. Yes, as a special thank you for being a member on bearhugger.net and as a special offer of the site's 13th anniversary, it will be unlocked, but only for your user. Just contact me by sending me a message on my profile with the Video Clip ID you want me to unlock.

Make sure you log in before viewing the locked list of clips. Depending on your trust rating, different videos will be shown in that list.

Please note that this offers ends at the end of this month.

2011-06-14: I forgot to mention that 5 video clips were added last month. Oops.. 5 FLV Clips - Tuesday June 14th 2011 (News ID: 1351)   [ Back to top ]

I forgot to mention that 5 video clips of FLV (Flash video) format were added last month.

As a reminder, since the videos are now in Flash instead of the old Windows Media Video format, you should be able to view these files under Mac and Linux.

To view the new files being added, you will need a minimum trust rating of 18 to view the first one and a minimum trust rating of 25 to view all five of them.

2010-12-28: Yay! The clips are finally in! Clips ...again! - Tuesday December 28th 2010 (News ID: 1295)   [ Back to top ]

Yay! The video clips are finally in.

These are for the month of November, but let's make them also for the holiday season to make things simpler.

You can jump to the listing of newest clips to start viewing your eye candies. In terms of hidden clips for users who have a high trust rating, there isn't much this month, but feel free to log in and browse anyway. You'll need a trust rating of 20 or higher to view the hidden clips.

2010-10-31: A couple of new clips have been added. Clips! - Sunday October 31st 2010 (News ID: 1272)   [ Back to top ]

First and foremost, I'd like to thank each and everyone of you for helping the site reach its goal this month. To celebrate this, I've added a couple of new clips for everyone to share and enjoy. You'll probably notice the Mike Pope bearhug above everything else...

So again, thank you very much!

Also part of the bonus media uploaded recently, take a quick look at this GIF animation that shows you how a bearhug should be applied.

There is of course a batch of hidden clips for you to uncover depending on your trust rating. I won't start naming the threshold values since I'm sure you can figure it out: acquire as many clips as possible with your points and new ones that are of better quality will start popping up. Simple, no?

If it's unclear, the trust rating page defines clearly how the mecanism works, but remember that the page will only show information if you have unlocked bearhug points in the first place.

2010-08-05: 14 clips have been added to the site. 14 Clips - Thursday August 5th 2010 (News ID: 1236)   [ Back to top ]

As you may have noticed, the site reached its goal this month in terms of donations. This was acheived by a generous donator.

As such, I have decided to celebrate this by adding 14 video clips, the majority of which are bearhugs. Half of these new videos are accessible without any constraints, the other 7 can be accessed with respectively trust ratings of 11, 12, 15, 19, 21, 25 and 31.

No, these are not lottery numbers.

If you have a trust rating of 20, you'll be able to view clips with trust ratings of 11, 12, 15 and 19, but you won't see those with values that are 21, 25 and 31.

You can access the clips by looking at the listing of newest clips. If you'd like to view the hidden ones, you can try to learn about the trust rating by clicking here.

Lastly, as an added bonus, you will receive a bonus +10,000 bearhug points if you voted on at least 50 video clips. Right now, there are 160 clips, so it shouldn't be too difficult to reach the basic 50. Note however that some clips do require unlocking before you can actually cast your vote on them, but around 70 clips currently do not have any locks on them. Points per video clip vote has also been increased by five times fold: from 40 to 200 points.

For those who already have 50 votes casted in the video clips section, you will not be able to hit the bonus threshold that will award the points to your account. Instead, you will have to send me a message so that I can personally add the bonus to you and triple it due to your early participation.

Note: If you manage to cast 100 or 150 votes in the video clips section, the bonus are respectively 50,000 and 100,000 points. And yes, 3x applies if you managed to get that amount of votes before today's announcement, but again, you'll have to contact me. Also note that you cannot get these points if you have not unlocked bearhug points before casting your votes.

2010-03-28: Hillbilly Jim bearhugs Brian Costello to submission in this particular video clip. Hillbilly Jim bearhugs Brian Costello - Sunday March 28th 2010 (News ID: 1164)   [ Back to top ]

It's been a while since I last added a clip, so hopefully, this new one will cheer you guys up.

Hillbilly Jim bearhugs Brian Costello to submission in this particular video. Costello is a very handsome hunk and quite an actor, too. While you watch it, try listening carefully to how the crowd gets so excited when Hillbilly Jim lands the submission. Quite an awesome audience, isn't it? Not something you'd hear or see anymore today when someone applies a bearhug, unfortunately.

You can view the clip in the listing of newest clips or by jumping directly to Clip ID 136.

If you haven't been visiting the clips recently, you will see that the interface changed a wee bit. The links for viewing the clip online or downloading the clip is clearer, and you no longer need to right-click the download link to get the video. So, for those unlucky users who can't view the clip online because their browser doesn't support it, you can just left-click the download link and view it on your computer with a software like VLC.

Lastly, while you're at it, there are also 2 additional video clips that are hidden. They will only appear on your list if you have a trust rating that is high enough. As a hint, one of them can be unlocked at a trust rating of 15.

2010-01-01: Happy New Year 2010!  How about we start the new year with 3 clips? :) Happy New Year 2010! - Friday January 1st 2010 (News ID: 1120)   [ Back to top ]

Yet another year have passed... we leave 2009 behind to face 2010 with open arms.

I don't have much to offer today in terms of celebration: just 3 little clips which can be viewed in the Clips Section.

The clips added are:
- A Gymini headlocks Joey Ryan
- Daivari bodyscissors then bearhugs Super Crazy
- Dave Sullivan puts an inverted bearhug on Dino Dimeglo.

I was looking for the latter for months and finally got it from a reseller at iOffer. So, I've extracted the clip and posted it for you guys. I hope you'll enjoy.

For probably many of you, Sullivan isn't the ideal wrestler since he's not the poster model, slim-and-lean wrestler, but he certainly knows how to put a great inverted bearhug. Dave can definitely give me an inverted bearhug anytime.

2009-10-04: I posted the bearhug video clip of the very first bearhug I`ve seen on TV. Duke Droese vs Reno Riggins - Sunday October 4th 2009 (News ID: 1059)   [ Back to top ]

Duke Droese bearhugging Reno Riggins was the very first bearhug I've seen on TV.

I posted the information some time ago as Database Entry ID 888. I've ordered it through iOffer and finally took some time to extract the bearhug sequence to share it with you guys. It can be accessed in the Clips Section under Cilp ID 131 without any restrictions.

I know in the past I used to say it was the bearhug with Dave Sullivan that was the very first bearhug I saw on TV, but after jotting down the timeline, I realized that Dave Sullivan bearhugs were held in 1995, whereas those from Duke Droese were held in 1994. Hence, Droese's bearhug was the starting triggering element that created the little seed of my passion for bearhugs. Back then, I didn't know the internet.. so it was only 4 years later that I made a website for it. And here we are today, 11 years later. Time flies, huh?

Do you have a bearhug that you will always remember? Wether it is a YouTube video or a file you have locally, please share it with us!

2009-09-11: The video viewer has been fixed.  You can test it out with the latest clip. Viewer fixed - Friday September 11th 2009 (News ID: 1041)   [ Back to top ]

For some time now, there is a video viewer available in the Clips Section that allows you to view the video online without having to download it.

I know that there's been quite a few issues with it: sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I just updated the code for it today and I added a status bar that shows you the progress of the streaming and the video should now play once it is completed loaded (meaning that you no longer need to press "Play" yourself).

I tested the viewer on both Internet Explorer and Firefox and it worked fine. Firefox users will also be happy to know that the customization of the width and height of the video now works correctly.

Give it a try with the latest clip that was added: Duke Droese bearhugs The Spider. It's a short bearhug, but it'll allow you to check the stability of the viewer on your browser.

Please feel free to report any issues and don't forget to mention the operating system that you are using and the browser.

This is the first month since its introduction that the donations given by users reached 100%. I'd like to say a big thank you to everyone who has contributed to help keep the site going.

I have just awarded an extra +100,000 bonus points to every user who has contributed at least once.

Also, as an added bonus, 3 new video clips have been added which can be accessed with trust ratings 1, 19 and 23 or above. Please make sure you log in before accessing the list of newest clips.

2009-08-13: Two video clips have been added to the site. Clips: Arcidi and Luger - Thursday August 13th 2009 (News ID: 1024)   [ Back to top ]

I've added two clips recently: one with Ted Arcidi bearhugging Barry Olsen. The other with Lex Luger racking Arn Anderson in what seems to be one of his longest racks ever displayed on TV!

If you watch the one with Ted Arcidi, make sure you stay until the end to watch him show his amazing physique on top of a slow-mo recap of his finishing bearhug.

These videos can be accessed from the Clips Section.

2009-04-28: Santo gets bearhugged by Tor in a very old movie. Santo! - Tuesday April 28th 2009 (News ID: 948)   [ Back to top ]

You don't get this today anymore, but back in the 60s and 70s, you have mexican wrestling heroes like Santo making movies where plenty of wrestling matches are involved.

What's so good about that? Well, wrestling matches most often imply wrestling holds and wrestling holds sometimes imply... you guessed it: bearhugs!

If you have a moment, take a look at the clip where Tor bearhugs Santo in a dreadful cemetary scene! There are also a few snapshots included in the Uploads section and let's not forget the related database entry that has been created for future reference.

If you have a moment, please take a look at the video clip where Brody Lee bearhugs Jerry Lynn.

It's a short video and it's a bit of a shame that Brody wasn't shirtless, but what the heck, he looks awesome anyway in his tank shirt for his trucker gimmick.

2009-03-28: Jkbearhug sent in a couple more clips. Angle vs Rhyno, Benoit vs Enos - Saturday March 28th 2009 (News ID: 920)   [ Back to top ]

Jkbearhug (id 727) sent me a couple more clips during the week. I haven't had a chance to post them since it requires a manual upload process. The reason why I never automated this in the first place is because of the limited web space that I am allotted, so I'll continue the manual process for now. I've only posted two of them and will continue posting the rest next week.

The first clip features Kurt Angle bearhugging Rhyno in a kneeling bearhug, while the second one shows the handsome Mike Enos bearhugging Chris Benoit in a lifted bearhug. These gems can be accessed from the Clips Section.

Meanwhile, you can also check the video game bearhugs I have added recently on that same link above.

As usual, don't forget to rate what you watch.
