It's hard not to admire Aryx Quinn's way with ring corners, turning them and his hard body into two prongs of a lethal weapon. Nobody outdoes Aryx in torpedoing his shoulder into a cornered man's midsection, and no one I can think of has been more inventive in finding ways of pretzeling his body through the corner ropes and around a hapless opponent. But his neckbreaker is something really special. It's his most photogenic hold, the sort of pose I'd like to see cast in bronze and pedestaled in my French garden (if only I had a French garden). It is a terrific hold for homoerotic wrestling, in particular, because it shows off two awe-inspiring upper bodies at the same time--the victor and the vanquished. And Aryx often tops his hold with one highly evocative O-face. I wouldn't say that Aryx Quinn invented the hanging neckbreaker*, but he has made it his own, kind of a signature hold that's both effective and hot. And he has worked some of the best necks in the business: among them, (top to bottom) Marco Guerra (in BG East's Military Muscle), Shaun Hilton (in Aryx's own Wrestler Spotlight), Cameron Matthews (in Leopard's Lair 1), Justin Pierce (in Matmen 20), Rio Garza (in BG's Bad Boys), Andy Hammer (in Jobberpaloozer 11), Denny Cartier (in Leopard's Lair 4), and Eddy Rey (in Leopard's Lair 3).

* But this variation was invented for him. See the comments below!


  1. This is one of the best blog posts I've ever seen in describing Aryx Quinn aka Tristan Baldwin in the true context of who he is. He is the master assailant & the Alpha Heel. A simply awesome blog post about the most unique and (In my opinion) most talented gay erotic wrestler in the business yesterday,today & tomorrow. Bravo!

  2. I invented this submission finisher expressly for Aryx. The idea for the hold was to take any chance out of the hangman hold. Ordinarily in a suspended hangman where both guys are standing you hope that gravity does its dirty work and the victim submits before the applier either tires or loses his slippery grip on the victim's chin or the victim manages to slither free. My idea was to make the hold inescapable and submission inevitable by sitting on the victim's heels to keep him trapped in place while pressing your shoulder back against the victim's to increase the torque on the back and neck. Most of the time Aryx got it right....
