Twenty-two years ago, I was in high school and still oblivious to the world of strongmen competitions. So thank goodness for YouTube. It has become a rich video archive of classic strongmen competitions. This one in particular is called “Pure Strength” (the 1989 episode). HITStrongman posted the whole event in 7 parts. [KEEP ON WOOFIN’!]
Flemming Rasmussen was one of my earliest crushes when I first discovered the World’s Strongest Man Competitions. Heinz Ollesch, Gerrit Badenhorst, Jamie Reeves, Lars Hedlund, Bruce Wilhelm, Henning Thorsen, and of course, Bill Kazmaier were also part of my Strongmen fantasies. I love Flemming’s physique as he’s more of a musclechub than a musclebear. Not that musclechubs are better than musclebears or anything. Well, er, how about a test?
Who is the sexiest of the two? Heinz or Flemming?
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. ^_^
