2017-01-23: Ted Arcidi links :) It's Arcidi Time! - Monday January 23rd 2017 (News ID: 1729)   [ Back to top ]

I love this big lug. If you haven't noticed, I added a couple of old school wrestling links containing Ted Arcidi giving some good old bearhugs. Many of them contain an actual submission win. Yeah the 80s and the 90s... it was a nice era where bearhugs actually made people submit. It is believable when it was given by the muscular arms of Arcidi and when the opponent is not another over-buffed gym jock, but just an average joe.

Arcidi didn't stay long in the pro circuit. He had this little rivalry against Bill Kazmaier, which had so much potential, but meh.. both these guys didn't generate enough interest from the crowd to last long enough.

Anyway, each active link containing an Arcidi bearhug should give you an extra +500 bearhug points for each vote.

I'm thinking of putting together a little compilation video of all the bearhugs he gave... it would make a nice bearhug-fest. This guy really knows how to squeeze and crush and squash all of his jobbers. If Ted Arcidi bearhugged William Wallace, the guy would yell for "mercy" instead of "freedom". I know.. that last sentence was lame.

2016-11-20: An anonymous user submitted a link to the PrimeTime Wrestling show from August 1989.  The show contains a total of 6 bearhugs.   Primetime Wrestling: 6 bearhugs - Sunday November 20th 2016 (News ID: 1719)   [ Back to top ]

An anonymous user submitted a link to the PrimeTime Wrestling show from August 1989. Surprisingly, the show contains a total of 6 bearhugs. Actually, half of those bearhugs are from Zeus... It was a gimmick from the movie "No Holds Barred". They decided to bring the character from the movie right into the WWF Summerslam event.

You can view all of those under Link ID 3516.

2016-03-06: TheChanges23 submitted two dozen links to videos with bearhugs. New YouTube links - Sunday March 6th 2016 (News ID: 1691)   [ 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.

2015-08-30: TheChanges23 posted another big batch of links of bearhugs in professional wrestling. A bit batch of videos with bearhugs - Sunday August 30th 2015 (News ID: 1669)   [ Back to top ]

TheChanges23 (id 3876) generously posted another big batch of links of bearhugs in professional wrestling. It doesn't look like much, but it's a lot of time spent browsing and searching YouTube since there are so many professional wrestling videos out there from a huge amount of different wrestling associations. In the end, only a very small portion of these videos actually contains a bearhug. Sometimes, you need to sit through (or fast-forward or skip through) hours and hours of content before you can find a 10-seconds bearhug...

I will always be eternally grateful for all of TheChanges23's work and dedication.

You can access all of his submissions by clicking here.

Voting on any of the links submitted by TheChanges23 (id 3876) will grant you a bonus +500 bearhug points per link.

2015-08-17: This star from the old school era always seem to use the bearhug in all of his matches.
John Elijah vs Steve Logan - Monday August 17th 2015 (News ID: 1665)   [ Back to top ]

Ah... John Elijah.

This star from the old school era always seem to use the bearhug in all of his matches.

The one below is one of my personal favorite. The younger inexperienced stud faces the older stronger and experienced wrestler.


For more of these, check out the latest links submitted with John Elijah as your bearhugger.

Meanwhile, you can vote on Link ID 3323 for a +5,000 bearhug points bonus.

2015-06-21: Here`s a Tumblr site for you if you`re big on pro heel vs jobber. :) Pro Muscle Jobbers in Trouble - Sunday June 21st 2015 (News ID: 1655)   [ Back to top ]

The title has all the elements to catch your attention.

It's actually a Tumblr site I tumbled upon.

http://promusclejobber.tumblr.com


If you're big on pro heel vs jobber, double-teaming, old school, indies and all that jazz, then the above site is for you.

If not, why not check out the other Tumblr sites on the list?


Site note: A vote on Link ID 3300 will grant you 1,500 points.

2015-04-11: Wrestlingdata allows you to filter wrestlers by wrestling hold Wrestling Data: Which wrestlers have used the bearhug? - Saturday April 11th 2015 (News ID: 1646)   [ Back to top ]

While I was doing a few google searches, I fell on this website that groups together wrestlers who have specific hold signatures in their wrestling lifetime.

The following particular link shows the list of wrestlers who used the bearhug as a trademark.

http://www.wrestlingdata.com/index.php?befehl=bsuche

Now this is interesting. Using the names, it would be possible to look for content on other sites relating to these wrestlers. With the ring name, I'm sure we'll be able to dig up videos on YouTube, pictures on Tumblr, and hopefully, find a bearhug or two.

You can easily do the same for other holds by using their search index:

http://wrestlingdata.com/index.php?befehl=bsuche

This site definitely has lots of potential. For instance, if you're a big fan of the torture rack or the camel clutch or of any wrestling maneuver, you can use their system to determine the wrestlers known to have used those holds recently or in the past decades.

2014-09-06: Many thanks to Thechanges23 for submitting a wide array of new bearhugs! A handful of YouTube bearhugs - Saturday September 6th 2014 (News ID: 1616)   [ Back to top ]

I realize that I've been talking a lot about pro wrestling nowadays, but I have to admit that many of their bearhugs are well carried out compared to the really staged ones we get from adult companies.

Thechanges23 (id 3876) added a wide array of new YouTube links that all contain bearhugs. Have a look at his recent links submissions: they might be a couple of bearhugs you would enjoy.

If you're trying to keep a local copy on your computer, you might want to use KeepVid or Video Grabber.

I'd like take this opportunity to thank Thechanges23 (id 3876) for all his efforts throughout the years. He gracefully and generously share his findings and marks down the time at which each bearhug starts. Without him, I'm sure I'd be missing out on a lot, because many of his bearhug findings are mind blowing! 392 links is his current count, and that number keeps increasing, because I still haven't gone through all of his new submissions yet!

Here's one example:


In this video, the Super Destroyer bearhugs his opponent 6 times: At 2:03, 2:49, 3:36, 4:54, 5:39 and 6:33! Talk about bearhug persistence!

Voting on this Link ID 3171 will net you 10,000 points.

2014-06-09: I was reviewing the Tumblr sites listed in the links section and fell on Backbreakerz.. Backbreakerz - Monday June 9th 2014 (News ID: 1604)   [ Back to top ]

I was reviewing the Tumblr sites listed in the Links section and fell on Backbreakerz... mainly because it was rated with a perfect 10, but that's also because it has a single vote.

http://backbreakerz.tumblr.com

In any case, Backbreakerz offers a wide variety of great high quality pro wrestling shots, many of them are cliché, but you'll find plenty of them that are awesome as well. There are shot of wrestling holds, and other shots of a pro wrestler in his proud-of-himself stance.

You can vote on Link ID 2251 to show your appreciation (or not) of this Tumblr site. This should grant you a nice +2,500 bearhug points.

So... what is so great about Tumblr websites? Well, it's straight down to business and directly what you want: plenty of eye candy. The downside: it is often difficult to find the source or the wrestlers involved in the pictures. Luckily for us, the owner of Backbreakerz seems to have invested a good amount of time and effort in identifying many of the images he has posted.

2014-01-25: Thechanges23 recently posted a handful of YouTube links with pro wrestling bearhugs. Lots of pro wrestling bearhugs - Saturday January 25th 2014 (News ID: 1586)   [ Back to top ]

Thechanges23 (id 3876) posted a handful of YouTube links with pro wrestling bearhugs in the links section.

These videos are in a mixed batch ranging from your old school NWA to the new overrated WWE stuff.

There's a couple of videos from TCW, Traditional Championship Wrestling, that houses high definition content. This association sounds very promising and I'm looking forward into seeing more bearhugs from these guys. You should definitely check them out. The other indies that Thechanges23 posted are pretty good as well.

The Russian Gimmick is often used in pro wrestling as the brutes, powerful, fierce, tough, rough and strong wrestlers that are often viewed as bad guys. In old classic pro, no one does it better than guys like Ivan Koloff, Boris Zhukov, Nikolai Volkoff and Krusher Khruschev. Why are all these name so hard to pronounce?

Here's a bearhug from each of them.
In your opinion, who has the fiercest, meanest and most powerful bearhug?

- Ivan Koloff bearhugs Tito Santana
- Boris Zhukov bearhugs Paul Roma

2013-04-12: I stumbled upon Cameron Matthew`s wrestling website the other day. Cameron Wrestler - Friday April 12th 2013 (News ID: 1532)   [ Back to top ]

I stumbled upon Cameron Matthew's wrestling website the other day. I have to admit that I haven't followed much of his video... until he started growing a bit bigger and starts to have a nice little after shave. *blush* You guys know my weaknesses...

Anyway, Cameron wrestled for BG East, Can-Am and Thunder's Arena. He has also appeared in several professional wrestling shows from various indies.

You can check out his website for more information:

http://www.cameronwrestler.com

The link is also archived under Link ID 2782. Speaking of which, I've also added him as a contender, so you can try and help boost his ranking by voting for Contender ID 733.

2013-03-05: The site now supports playback of Daily Motion videos on-site. Support for Daily Motion videos - Tuesday March 5th 2013 (News ID: 1523)   [ Back to top ]

This Daily Motion upgrade to the links section is a bit obsolete since almost everyone prefers the YouTube counterpart, not just because of the quantity of videos available, but because they usually hold higher quality clips.

However, there has been a couple of video link submissions on the site that are from the Daily Motion website, probably because those same videos have been either eradicated or rejected from YouTube's servers. It's a bit sad to say, but if you're looking for a video that's no longer on YouTube, then a poorer quality of it would probably still be there on Daily Motion just because major copyright holders won't even bother looking at it.

That being said, I've added support to directly play the Daily Motion videos on the site. Each linking page will also respond to the "timers". Clicking on those timers will play the video exactly where the bearhug occurs. (So if you see a description that says something like: Bearhug @ 4:10, then click on it). Keep in mind that you can skip advertisements immediately by clicking on the 'x' at the top right corner of the clip. Uh.. yea, Daily Motion doesn't make it as obvious as YouTube when it comes to skipping ads.

Just check out the latest link submissions and give it a try. Note that affects only the links section. The database section has been left untouched.

I also received reports that the code appears unstable. So if that's the case, remember to upgrade your Java and Flash versions to the latest. This should solve most issues.

2012-09-02: Just a little note about YouTube company links A note about YouTube company links - Sunday September 2nd 2012 (News ID: 1475)   [ Back to top ]

Hey guys, just a little note that if you're going to submit YouTube that contains video of copyrighted content, then you should be aware that chances are pretty high that those videos will be blasted to oblivion in the next... um... few days.

Some adult companies have people that are hired to constantly go through YouTube videos & channels, but some are even trained to go through the list of links posted on websites to monitor for unauthorized content. That being said, it's a bit sad to affirm that if you're posting the link to the unauthorized content on this site, it could actually increase the speed at which the video will be removed from YouTube. It's hard for a paid agent to go through the list of all wrestler names, but it's much faster to browse a pre-populated list of links...

Either ways, I'm kind off washing off my hands from all of this since these video uploads are being stored on YouTube rather than hosted on bearhugger.net. Still, please do avoid submitting these kinds of links. They end up being broken anyways.

2012-04-15: Two beefy bears in action :) King Studd vs. The Irish Hammer - Sunday April 15th 2012 (News ID: 1440)   [ Back to top ]

First, no bearhugs here, but I definitely wish they were some...

Rey Rey's Photography recently added some pretty good wrestling pictures in one of their albums.

Now, these are absolutely amazing professional photos. I think I know who I would hire one day to capture my wrestling matches.

Mind you, every picture taken by Rey Rey is simply mind-blowing.. and also full of beef!

Jiraiya's illustrations for the G-Men magazine are probably one of the best drawings I've ever seen.

The guys are handsome, bulky, muscular... humm... what more could you ask?

Here's one sample below, but you should definitely check out Bear Mongul's post on G-Men HQ postcards to see the whole collection and save the ones you prefer:

2012-03-09: Blake Reed performs a bearhug in almost every match. Blake Reed's bearhugs - Friday March 9th 2012 (News ID: 1428)   [ Back to top ]

A fellow heavyweight wrestler by the name of Blake Reed, codename Pain, is applying bearhugs in almost every match he is involved.

You can see a nice starter collection by clicking here.

Now, by heavyweight, this means around 6'4" 358 lbs, so if this is a bit too heavy for you, feel free to skip. Otherwise, I'm sure you'll have more than enough eye candy in the links and videos that you will watch.

2012-01-25: Check out these Hercules bearhug from Mauleo. Mauleo's drawings: Hercules in bearhugs - Wednesday January 25th 2012 (News ID: 1417)   [ Back to top ]

Back in July 2011, I wrote about Mauleo's Blogspot containing impressive illustrations of Hercules.

Well, guess what? Mauleo decided to draw a couple of bearhugs! Here are 3 interesting links you might want to check out:

- http://mauleo-comic.blogspot.com/2011/11/hercules-and-mage-part-2-samples.html
- http://mauleo-comic.blogspot.com/2012/01/hercules-fight-fatguy.html
- http://mauleo-comic.blogspot.com/2012/01/hercules-fight-fatguy-part2.html

Bear in mind that if you like this guy's artwork, you can support him by purchasing his comic books containing his stories about Hercules getting into all sorts of trouble.

The comic containing the Hercules vs The Mage bearhug only costs 10$ anyways.

2012-01-08: Since last October, a lot more links have been added. More Tumbling - Sunday January 8th 2012 (News ID: 1412)   [ Back to top ]

Since last October when I started talking about Tumblr Sites, a lot more links have been added.

A lot of those sites are "bear-related", but you'll find plenty of associated Tumblr sites while you browse. This means that you will eventually find that specific pool of pictures and Tumblrs that will match your interests.

That's the beauty of Tumblr networks and communities.

On top of that, it takes 2 minutes to start creating your own Tumblr network, adding images that you like and sharing them. The interface is so friendly and so easy, it doesn't take a genius to figure it out. Then, when you start getting followers, you can also check out their Tumblr and follow the images they post. Most likely, they will have common traits with the pictures you tend to prefer.

You can check the updated list of Tumblr Sites by clicking here. Of course, this represents but a very infinitely small amount of Tumblr sites actually available.

2011-10-30: Tumblr sites are like double-edged swords... Tumblr sites - Sunday October 30th 2011 (News ID: 1393)   [ Back to top ]

Tumblr sites are like double-edged swords...

On one hand, they give an absolutely astonishing amount of large, high quality pics. On the other hand, they provide almost no information about those images they provide. So, if you come across a pic that you like and you want to find the source, chances are that you will have to do all the scramble and research yourself. Depending on the rarity, you could be stuck looking for a long while...

Anyway, my recommendation is that you check out the new Tumblr sites that were added recently. You'll probably find quite a few sites that you will probably end up bookmarking.

2011-08-31: A search in the links section now gives a preview of possible results in the database section Preview db results for links section - Wednesday August 31st 2011 (News ID: 1380)   [ Back to top ]

It is not uncommon that a search in the links section returns nothing, but the same search in the database section returns something.

I've recently modified the script to make links section search slightly more intelligent: if there are matching results that come from the database section, a preview of those results will now be displayed.

As an example, if you type "Arcidi" as your title search in the links section, you should now see both the links and database results.

Give it a try.

If you like illustrations... and not just of any kind: illustrations with a big focus for thick, big, muscular, hairy and bearded build of Hercules, then you'll probably enjoy the drawings of Mauleo.

http://mauleo-comic.blogspot.com


While the artist hasn't drawn any bearhugs yet, I'm sure he can eventually be persuaded to do so.

Musclemen of Wrestling has been around for longer than I can remember. I went to visit it again recently and to my surprise, it seemed to have undergone a big face lift. As the site says so well, its mission is to honor the Best Built Athletes in Pro Wrestling.

Updates are pretty frequent and you never get bored of the new content this guy has to offer.

To visit his site, simply click the link below:
http://musclemenofwrestling.webs.com
The links is also stored on-site as Link ID 1616.

Truth be told, the site moved from WebTV servers to their new actual webs.com servers not that long ago. During the move, some users may have been confused and believed that the site no longer existed. If this is the case, remember to update your bookmarks.
